Aug 21, 2011 No Comments

Bus models are a big part of the Sunstar lineup, and we’d seen some of these 1:24 double deckers before – but this 1946 AEC Regent really grabbed us, with its tall, skinny architecture, petite stairways and railings, and the artful little details that abound everywhere. Sunstar’s really good at making the big and little [...]

Birth of the Sting Ray

Aug 18, 2011 1 Comment

The 1963 model year brought a new body style to the Chevrolet Corvette, and introduced the Sting Ray “split-window” coupe, arguably the most iconic Corvette ever produced.

Danbury Mint 1:24 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Seville: Golden Boy

Aug 14, 2011 No Comments

It’s hard to believe that in the midst of the chrome-crazed ‘fifties, a design as elegant and sedate as the ’57 Eldorado was allowed to leave Detroit. But it did, and it still stirs the soul. Part of that has to do with sheer rarity; fewer than 4,000 Eldos were built that year, emerging from [...]

Research has its rewards. For me, the payoff came when a little Internet crawling returned photos of the actual bus that Sunstar used to tool this outstanding model of a 1949 Bedford OB. Bedfords were built from 1939 to 1951, and a little more than 12,500 were made; very little change took place during that [...]
