Legends Remembered: M2 Machines’ Shelby Tribute Cars

Legends Remembered: M2 Machines’ Shelby Tribute Cars

Carroll Shelby’s legacy remains one of the strongest in automotive history. M2 Machines’ “Shelby Tribute” 1:24 and 1:64 first-gen Shelby 1965 Mustang GT350s celebrate the life of the legend, and each car wears the number “89” (Mr. Shelby’s age at passing), a brace of reproduced Shelby signatures on its roof, and the stylized “CS” logo […]
Look Back and Remember: November 22, 1963

Look Back and Remember: November 22, 1963

As we celebrate Thanksgiving, we must also take a moment to remember another American moment – one not so happy – that happened on this day in 1963. It’s not very often that a model causes controversy. But when Minichamps  released a replica of President John F. Kennedy’s 1961 “X-100” Lincoln – replete with figures […]

GreenLight Goes Vampy: 1:18 “Bella’s Chevy Pickup” Rises Up

And, as seen in the Twilight series of films, she also has a thing for bloodsuckers. Hey, three out of four ain’t bad. While we can’t attest to character “Bella’s” taste in men, we […]

CMC Magic: 1:18 Maserati 300S is Another Bolt from the Blue

CMC Magic: 1:18 Maserati 300S is Another Bolt from the Blue

CMC’s 1:18 Maserati 300S is another bolt from the blue (well, okay, it’s red, but you get what we mean) from a company with an almost Thor-like capacity to hit their target time after time.

Highway 61 Debuts 1:43! Meet the Boss…

Highway 61 Debuts 1:43! Meet the Boss…

Highway 61 made the scene several years ago with American classics like the 1951/51 Studebaker, a Hudson Hornet, and even a Nash or three. In between, they also broke out very detailed 1:18 muscle, carrying the torch for the Ertl releases that had founded the hobby. That shouldn’t have been a surprise: the company’s president […]
