Look Back 1:18: Ricko Cadillac V16 “Aero-Dynamic Coupe”

Look Back 1:18: Precision 100 Ford Mustang Convertible

There are a few milestone models in the 1:18 hobby. On the one hand, there are the early, inexpensive Bburagos and Ertls that attracted most collectors to the scale in the first place, and on the other, the super-detailed (and far pricier) one-to-eighteen offerings from makers like Exoto, Lane Exact Detail, and GMP that introduced […]
