AUTOart  Honda NSX  Japanese Police

AUTOart Honda NSX Japanese Police

Anyone who’s been tailed by a trooper in a striped-up Mustang, Camaro or Hemi Charger can tell you that hot shoe cop cars aren’t uncommon. But when the lawman is rolling in an exotic … that’s a different story. AUTOart has taken one of their better recent mold sets —  a killer early ’90s NSX […]
Auto World  1972 Pontiac Trans Am

Auto World 1972 Pontiac Trans Am

Back in the good old days of mass-market, twenty-buck  large-scale diecasts, the Ertl company ruled the roost with nice-looking replicas of popular muscle cars. In 1995 they debuted one of their best ever — a 1970 Pontiac Trans Am — and that mold still looks as good now as it did back then. When considering […]

Automodello 1977 TVR M-Series Turbo

Automodello 1977 TVR M-Series Turbo

When Triumph quit building their U.S.-legal straight-six engines, TVR was left without a powerplant. Ford of England agreed to supply the 3-liter “Essex” V-6; with the bigger engine the TVR became the 3000M.  For those who wanted still more power, TVR had Ford tuner Broadspeed develop a turbocharged version, the 3000M Turbo.  TVR Chairman Peter […]
Auto World  “Foster’s King  Cobra” Funny Car

Auto World “Foster’s King Cobra” Funny Car

The Legends of the Quarter Mile from Auto World just keep a-comin’, and that’s not a bad thing. AW’s model of Sid and Gerald Foster’s  1972 Mustang flopper is the latest take on the line’s FoMoCo funny car mold set, and it’s one of the flashiest in an array of anything-but-subtle models, thanks to a […]

LRP Mercedes-Benz DTM

LRP Mercedes-Benz DTM

Another just-emerging runner from LRP is this Mercedes-Benz C-class AMG DTM – truly a trick sedan, thanks to accurate proportions, a low-slung stance, and the same S10 tub-style chassis used on the Porsche. That tub has a lot of advantages – strength being the principal benefit – and it makes for an adaptable platform that […]
LRP Porsche GT3 “Green Hell”

LRP Porsche GT3 “Green Hell”

If you know what “Grüne Höelle” means – and no, it’s not a Goth-metal act from Sweden – you’re  probably already taking a good long look at this LRP Porsche GT3 Cup racer from RC maker LRP. The model and the company are both new (they haven’t even figured out their pricing, yet) but it […]

Auto World 1977 Pontiac Trans Am

Auto World 1977 Pontiac Trans Am

The parade of new 1:43 resins continues to impress us, especially this emerging line from Auto World, whose recent foray into the scale and the medium has been extremely well received around here. This pair of 1977 Pontiac Trans Ams had us tearing into the packaging, thanks to what appeared to be a high level […]
Hot Wheels Elite  2012 Ferrari FF

Hot Wheels Elite 2012 Ferrari FF

Introduced at the 2011 Geneva Show, the Ferrari FF (“Ferrari Four”) broke new ground in several areas.  Its 6.2 liter, 651-horse V-12 was the biggest engine ever stuffed into a street-legal Ferrari, and while it’s not the first four seater from Modena, its high-roofline (“shooting brake” in Euro-speak) Pininfarina body is the first to carry […]

Auto World  Christine 1958 Plymouth Fury

Auto World Christine 1958 Plymouth Fury

While Michael and K.I.T.T. were tearing up the Universal back lot, author Stephen King was penning a missive about a massive old Plymouth that came off the assembly line populated by more spooks than a Hallowe’en hayride. That novel – Christine – eventually made it to the big screen in one of the better-realized efforts […]
Hot Wheels Elite  “K.A.R.R.”

Hot Wheels Elite “K.A.R.R.”

Before Michael Knight’s bad, black, cyber-Trans Am “K.I.T.T” took to fighting crime, there was “K.A.R.R.,” Knight Industries’ first – and decidedly flaky – prototype robotic car. Unlike its properly bolted-together sibling,  K.A.R.R. had a few screws loose (not to mention a couple of rogue circuits in its main processor), and was stashed safely away until […]
