Got a thing for redheads?

Got a thing for redheads?

Ferrari sure does, and now so does GMP. The second in the company's series of 1:6 scale Ferrari engines is this stunning beauty—the 250 Testa Rossa V-12. Testa Rossa translates directly to "red head", and you don't need to be a linguistics professor to figure out where it got its name—the brilliant red cam covers on this 3.0L V-12 can be seen almost as far away as the signature shriek of the V-12 can be heard. A melody, incidentally, that GMP includes with the model courtesy of a sound module in the base that is activated by the start button and rowing through the gears on the shifter. The model includes the engine, transmission, base with wood frame and a beautiful display case/dust cover. Now do you have a thing for redheads?

Custom Countach

Here's an interesting one - Kyosho's 1:18 Lamborghini Countach LP500R. If that name doesn't sound familiar to you, don't worry - Lambo never produced a car originally called an LP500R. This vehicle is a one-of-a-kind overhaul of an LP400 by its owner in Japan; it now sports a beefed up 5.0-liter V-12, wide BBS wheels, custom interior work and aggressive white on black graphics.

Picture Perfect Displays

A display case can be more than just protection for your model, it can bring a whole new dimension to the presentation. That’s the idea behind Pioneer Plastics display cases—beginning with a clear, distortion-free, tightly fitting cover with classy beveled edges. They come in a number of sizes, and three styles of base are offered: […]

Return of the Street Fighter

Sonny Chiba would be proud — this sequel to GMP’s Street Fighter ’68 Camaro is even more of a brawler than the original. This one is based on GMP’s ’69 Camaro casting, and the added style of the newer body is augmented by SS style hockey-stick fender graphics. Those graphics also highlight the biggest mechanical […]

Kyosho goes big with the Enzo

We knew it was in the works and now it has finally arrived - Kyosho's awesome 1:12 Enzo Ferrari. The reigning king of the supercars is now the ultimate Kyosho diecast.

The Cool Short Bus

The Cool Short Bus

Did you ever think you’d live to see the day when a Volkswagen Bus would be considered an image car? This is the same vehicle even VW pitched with the slogan “It’s ugly, but it gets you there.” But in the 40-odd years it’s been chugging along, it’s earned a sort of geek-chic, and is […]

Humming Along with Dub City Kustoms

The Dub culture's fascination with the Hummer seems to be rolling merrily along on jumbo rims, even on the junior model in the Hummer line - the H3. Not that any Hummer could be considered a compact, but the H3 - especially in its 'T' pickup configuration seems almost practical.
