LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

I eagerly went up the escalator, bounding up the last few steps two at a time.

I was headed for the World of Toys Expo on the third floor of the Plaza. Two floors below Zamboni level, where the Wranglers will be playing hockey next year.

This is where they had memories on display in 1/64th scale.

It used to be called the World of Hot Wheels Expo or something similar. Guys who collect 1/64-scale memories had them spread out on tables in their original packages.

I didn’t really collect Hot Wheels, but they came out in 1968, when I was 11. So I had a few, a few dozen. Unlike Matchbox cars, which you couldn’t race, you could flick a Hot Wheels with two fingers, and it would go flying across the linoleum like the Johnny Lightning Special, the car Al Unser drove in the Indianapolis 500.

Serial(ized) Killer

Minichamps Model 40 Special Speedster

1:43 | $95.00 

Too much is never enough, especially when the matter at hand is cars from the fringe. For a lot of die-hard car folks, Edsel Ford’s one-off “Model 40 Special Speedster” might never have been a topic of conversation – never mind the subject of collectors’ lust – had it not been for Minichamps’ replicating the car in 1:18 resin, and now, in a hugely entertaining 1:43 in the same material.

This is a great little piece that grabs the eye with clean lines, precision scaling, and flawless assembly. Edsel’s V8-powered rocket – designed by Bob Gregorie at Edsel’s behest – wears readable gauges on its dash, scale-thin twin windscreens (maybe our favorite single detail – and that’s saying a lot), perfect photo-etched grillework, and real lensing in all of its head and taillight bezels. Remarkable detail bits – some truly tiny – make up the handles and hardware all around; the only painted bits we see, trim-wise, are the bolt heads on the license plate bracket. There’s a strapped-in spare behind the seats, and the balance of the road rubber is done with perfect, beautifully bright whitewalls wrapped around “steelies” that are painted just as well as the car’s body and slick cycle fenders. There’s even a deeply engraved “V8″ symbol at the center of each chromed hub cap. All of this begs the question: is Minichamps single-handedly redefining top-tier quality collectibles at everyman prices?  If this serialized piece (604 of 999 made) is any indication, the answer is a resounding “yes”.  - Joe Kelly, Jr.

CMC Maserati 300S Rolling Chassis  1:18 | $356.00 

CMC has given collectors two amazing versions of the 1955-1958 Maserati 300S draped in beautiful Carozzeria Fantuzzi bodywork, but the most impressive version of the 300S just might be this rolling chassis version, on deck for release sans body.

It’s an important car, and this release of a nuts-and-bolts (and tubing, and rubber, and…) chassis is the icing on a very quick cake. In 1954, Maserati basically re-configured their highly successful 250F Formula 1 monoposto into a two-seater sports car to contest the FIA’s World Sportscar Championship for ’55. Since the car would be racing on bumpy post-war European road circuits, using pump gas and racing for up to 1000 km, this redesign had to be made more robust than the F1 car. The chassis was widened and strengthened, and the engine was opened up by a half-liter. The compression ratio was dropped to improve reliability, but yield the same horsepower as the 250F, and the whole thing got wrapped with an alloy body developed without the aid of a wind tunnel. Though done by eye, the intuitiveness of the design – which grew a longer nose as it evolved –  yielded a shape that was both aerodynamically slippery,  and extremely beautiful.

CMC’s complete 300S was reviewed in the Spring ’13 DCX, and we were crazy about it, even though we could only guess at the details hidden under its impressively rendered  skin. Now that the shell has been taken away, it’s apparent that our guesses were right: CMC ’s engineers build their models with details that go far beyond what’s visible with the body in place.

This isn’t a surprise. We saw this kind of completeness in an earlier Maserati from CMC – the “Birdcage”, which also got marketed as a skinless, plinth-mounted museum piece. In an evolutionary move, this 300S running frame takes that no-detail-left-unexplored philosophy a step further: CMC has deleted the body, but left its supporting trellis in place. That allows a minds-eye view, and rough idea of the final shape of the car.

Everywhere on this exquisite replica, details boggle the mind: tiny rivets are used to assemble the gas tank and hold pieces to the frame. Brass tubing runs from stem to stern, lashed to the rails with rubber and steel clamps. Even the hardware all over is staggeringly well done: where most manufacturers might use a dab of paint to represent a chrome acorn nut or a brass bolt, on this car, these are actually separately installed parts. The seats are covered in real leather, the instrument panel is fully wired and plumbed, and everything, everywhere, seems to be wrought out of metal. If there is a piece of plastic anywhere, they’ve cast, textured and installed it in the model so seamlessly, we don’t know where it is. All we see is alloys of every shape and variety: photo-etched, diecast, machined, or otherwise fabricated into minute pieces that are flawlessly fitted. Are there pistons in the engine? Oil in the DeDion rear? We’ll find a small wrench and get back to you.

Kidding aside, this is an amazing example of the modeler’s art, limited to 3000 pieces, and highly recommended.

ACME Diecast, the spawn of the late, lamented GMP, is a rowdy bunch of go-getters (in the best possible way) who never let a good model go unnoticed – or a great opportunity to break out a new series pass them by. And we love them for that.

We’d spoken with Mat Long and papa Tom Long a while back, and they were excited at the prospect of bringing this new line of beautifully crafted and detailed old school models out. After seeing a few impromptu cell phone photos of one of the giant metal planes, we were excited, too. Now, the deal is done – items are in stock at ACME. We haven’t yet seen the cars, boats, and planes in person (we hope to, soon) but the pictures we’ve seen on these product cards tell a tale of exquisite metal bodies on the cars, fabric-covered wings on the planes, and wooden hulls on the boats. The detailing is rich, and the feel, authentic – hence the company’s name, “Authentic Models”.

The size of some of these is impressive – wingspans on the Tri-Motor, DC3 and the Junkers JU-52 “Annie” all surpass a yard – and the overall presentation and vintage subject matter had us at “hello”. They may be pricey, but stay tuned – this looks to be a promising line. Ain’t no school like the old school.

TSM Models Tyrrell 006 / Belgian GP 1973  1:18 | $140.00

TSM Models’ Tyrrell 006 racer is a tight little replica of Jackie Stewart’s final F1 ride; a sealed-body marvel that pays homage to a great driver – and the sport he walked away from when he parked the car for the last time.

The Tyrrell 006 first got raced in late 1972 at the Canadian Grand Prix. Stewart clicked with the car, and won his third Driver’s Championship in 1973, besting a stable of talented pilots, including his teammate, the movie-star-handsome, supremely talented Francois Cevert. The Ford Cosworth DFV engine, Hewland five speed, and ZF differential  were a perfect match of power and gearing for Stewart and his Tyrrell cohorts, scoring five wins, three poles, and two fastest lap laurels in 18 races.

This is a great looking model of the car as it appeared when Stewart won the Belgian GP in 1973. It was a tough race even before it started; after walking the circuit at Zolder scarcely a week before the contest, Stewart, Emerson Fittipaldi, and Francois Cevert all found the track in terrible condition, with chunks of its surface loose enough to cause a hazard. So, they put their collective foot down: fix the track, or we won’t show up.  The course got resurfaced in time for the race.

It’s a testament to the trio that they won that day; Stewart was first, Cevert second, and Fittipaldi third, in a Lotus-Ford. It would be Stewart’s only Belgian GP victory, and one of his last races. On October 6, 1973, Cevert, Stewart’s friend, protégé, and heir apparent to the Elf Team leadership, crashed and died at Watkins Glen in his Tyrrell during qualifying for the U.S. Grand Prix. In a touching moment, Stewart – who could be seen prior to the race discussing with Francois how to maneuver through the very spot where he later crashed – drove his Tyrrell to the scene, trying to determine what could have gone wrong. He retired from Formula 1 racing that day, having already taken his third Driver’s Championship.

TSM has done a bang-up job on the model. Not only is the car properly proportioned and perfectly cast, it’s also painted beautifully, and decorated with tampos of outstanding clarity and quality. Even where the white markings are faced against the dark blue, the images are sharp, glossy, and opaque. The scuffed tires, complete (and mostly visible) engine and exhaust detailing, complex (but static) suspension bits and the beautifully braced rear wing offer up a ton of detail, despite the lack of a single working feature, save for free-wheeling axles.

It’s always fun to compare a replica to archival footage of its full-sized inspiration in the hands of a master, especially when it’s a car as twitchy and light on its feet as this one was. Watching Stewart bomb through corners on the ragged edge of control had us looking between our monitors and the tabletop, again and again, and celebrating not only the model’s accuracy, but “The Flying Scot” himself for the treasure he is. That elevated TSM’s Tyrrell from display piece to something of a touchstone. Highly recommended.

AUTOart Red Bull X2010  1:18 |$189.99

Movie and TV cars in scale are always fun. ‘Sixties kids had James Bond’s DB5, the Barris Batmobile, the Black Beauty, and the Munster Koach; younger fans have K.I.T.T., the General Lee – or, more recently, any of the Dark Knight Batmobiles, Batpods,  and Bat… well, everything. That guy gets around.

The common thread? All of the above are actual cars, built to perform in front of cameras. Now, the driving simulation game Gran Turismo 5 has given us a full-on-fantasy virtual automobile, the Red Bull X2010, which in turn has spawned an AUTOart 1:18 Signature Series replica. The best part is, the virtu-mobile this model represents was brought about by no less a luminary than Red Bull’s F1 Zen master Adrian Newey (hence the corporate tie-in), who did some mouse-and-stylus jockeying on Polyphony Digital’s original plans for the 1500-horse, toss-the-rules super racer. Starting with a design penned by Polyphony CEO/avid racer Kazunori Yamauchi, Newey facelifted, streamlined, and equipped the X2010 with a fighter-plane canopy above and vacuum-traction fan technology below. This allows the X2010 to literally suck itself onto the track at any speed, and the result is an 8.75G-capable car that tops out – on the screen – at 279 miles per hour. Those numbers allowed Red Bull’s ace Sebastian Vettel to virtually best the course record at Suzuka by 20 seconds, and do the ‘Ring in one minute and four.

No wonder this thing looks like it’s moving when parked on the table. The light orange is an eye-searing hue, and it’s flawless under the model’s minimal livery. Accent pieces for the suspension arms, fender struts, and wings are done in a carbon fiber pattern with just the right amount of gloss to pull off the realism; at the rear, the wheels are hidden behind scale-thin steel spats that are screwed to the car with watch-grade hardware. That’s neat, but it pales in comparison to the pod-style front wheels, encased in “Bridgestone” deco’d nacelles. Tweak these, and the steering wheel moves along; don’t try to get your fingers into the cockpit to verify the connection from the other end, or you’ll probably prang the delicate, multi-hinged canopy in the process. Better to just take in the heads-up display, textured seat, and the neat graphics applied to the steering wheel screen. The rest of the car is sealed – no sign of its bespoke twin-turbo V6 ahead of the twin metal exhausts poking out of the cross-vented deck – but everything that’s visible, from the wild baffles and screened ducts below to the staggering complexity of the car’s fan-equipped rear end, is done to the usual high AUTOart standard.

Red Bull recently built a full-scale mockup of the car, and further designs show that there’s even more room for improvement. No word on whether these will ever be put on a track, for real. We sure hope so. Whether you’re a gamer, or just like the idea of pushing the limits, this one is too cool to miss.
