M2 Machines Keeps ‘em Coming

M2 Machines Keeps ‘em Coming

Unveiling release 27 (yep – we said 27) in their 1:24 scale lineup, M2 Machines is reintroducing their extremely popular “Detroit Muscle” 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 casting in two new color variations – Pastel Blue and Grabber Orange. Rolling out along with those powerful ponies is a set of ground-hugging 1956 Ford F100 trucks.  If […]
The Phantom Menace: Automodello’s Corsair is on deck

The Phantom Menace: Automodello’s Corsair is on deck

Those 57 Varieties must have been running pretty well when Rusty Heinz contracted Maurice Schwartz (of Bohman & Schwartz coach builders) to help design and build a special car, atop an already special machine. Thus the dashing coachwork of the Phantom Corsair, of which only one would ever be made, was built onto a Cord […]

Sunstar 1:24 AEC Regent Bus: Double Decker Fun

Sunstar 1:24 AEC Regent Bus: Double Decker Fun

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 […]
Danbury Mint 1:24 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Seville: Golden Boy

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

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 […]

Sunstar 1:24 Bedford OB: Magic Bus

Sunstar 1:24 Bedford OB: Magic Bus

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 […]
Diecast Reproductions’ 1:24 “Junker” Corvette: One Man’s Trash…

Diecast Reproductions’ 1:24 “Junker” Corvette: One Man’s Trash…

Done to a truly putrid turn by the master of scale mayhem, Manny Solano, Diecast Reproductions’ thoroughly crapped-over 1982 Corvette coupe is a forlorn, fermented piece of the barn find variety. To be sure, this kind of simulated decay doesn’t come easy. Though the car is bereft of a single glossy surface, Solano’s artistry shines […]
