Jun 29, 2011 No Comments

Some collect by size, some by make or model, and others simply by attitude. Maisto’s new 55s line offers a little of all of the above. The new 1:55 scale is definitely out of the ordinary. So is the departure from being exact to the original car’s shape and design. These are cars and trucks with a slightly animated quality. And [...]
