Sneak Peek: First Response Dauphin Heli

As a companion piece to its First Response series of police cruisers, Diecast Direct has just released a Dauphin helicopter in the Maryland State Police Aviation Command colors. The accuracy on this model is astounding for the price, and well it should be since Diecast Direct’s Product Development Manager is a former trooper who flew in the […]

Sneak Peek: BBR Ferrari 375 Plus

Here’s the latest BBR release that we spotted at a recent trade show: the 1954 Ferrari 375 Plus Carrera PanAmaricana #19. This is a variant of the outstanding 1:18 model we reviewed in the Summer 2007 issue of DieCast X, but this is no simple re-paint.

Sneak Peek: Charger Police Car

Sneak Peek: Charger Police Car

The Dodge Charger is just about the hottest thing going in the world of police vehicles. With more and more departments switching over to Mopar, Diecast Direct figured the time was right to introduce a 1:43 Charger cruiser, and this sample has pretty much every feature the production piece will have, except paint and decals. Interior, trunk and engine detail […]

Sneak Peek: Diecast Direct Mystery Bus

We saw this pattern for a new bus casting at the Diecast Direct booth. We don’t know much more than what you can tell from the photo.
