NEW VIDEO! GreenLight 1:18 Mustang II Cobra

Mar 27, 2013 2 Comments by

Straight from the pages of Die Cast X! One of the cooler releases to see the light of day at Nuremberg and New York this year was the newly-tooled GreenLight 1:18 Ford Mustang II. We managed to borrow one for our Summer 2013 edition (on its way to the stores now), and we couldn’t wait to get it into the studio for some video, too.

The verdict? If you’re a collector who loved the ’70s, you’re in for a treat!

About the author

I was always crazy about toy cars and car-themed play sets, but I got hooked on car models when my cousin sent me a pair of built-up AMT kits - a '61 Continental and a '57 Thunderbird. I was six or seven years old when another cousin - Carl - showed me how to build and paint, and by the time I was nine, I had a pretty good collection and a great "spares box" on hand. The original Auto World catalogs were my dream books; my allowance was spent before it was ever earned, and I knew every hobby store and model retailer on Long Island. Then came slot cars, Cox .049-engined Baja Buggies and airplanes, and, ultimately, the real things. I still have some of those old models, and when time allows, I still build or detail scale cars. But it's the ready-to-display replicas and scale racing models that have really had me jazzed for the past fifteen years or so. The "mint" diecasts and the 1:18 American Muscle cars that I cut my serious collecting (and writing) teeth on back then led straight to the current crop of offerings from high-end makers and models in every scale. I also love scale model photography, and shooting, scoring, and producing videos of the models I love. I'm a proud member of the DiecastSpace Diecast Hall of Fame, as well as the Diecast Car Collectors' Club Diecast Scale Model Hall of Fame. I'm also proud to be a part of the Die Cast X Team, and as Editor-in-Chief, I'm looking forward to years of growing the publication and showing new collectors how much fun this hobby can be. And, yeah - I still have that spares box.

    Can’t wait to get my hands on one! Been waiting for someone to build one in a larger scale than 1/64th.
