BONUS PHOTOS! Sunstar’s 1:18 1960 Plymouth Fury Convertible

Yeah, we know… it’s only digital. But even if the images we shoot for every issue really only exist on “the cloud” – wherever that may be – we hate to see all that photo setup and shooting go to waste just because we can’t fit them all into the print edition of DCX. This […]
SNEAK PEEK: Sunstar’s 1:18 “Russ Truelove” 1956 Mercury Stock Car

SNEAK PEEK: Sunstar’s 1:18 “Russ Truelove” 1956 Mercury Stock Car

Russ Truelove had made two – count ’em, two – payments on his brand-new 1956 Mercury Montclair when he entered it into the 1956 Daytona 500, and in order to get the car to a different (and, apparently, distant) Mercury dealership for the addition of its 260-horse hop-up kit (all the better to get the […]

NEW VIDEO!: Sunstar’s 1:18 1958 Ford Fairlane Hardtop

NEW VIDEO!: Sunstar’s 1:18 1958 Ford Fairlane Hardtop

Sunstar’s Platinum Collection is one of the true success stories in 1:18, and it’s still thriving. The reason is pretty simple. It’s a high-detail, value-conscious lineup, made up mostly of classic 1950’s American cruisers – like this ’58 Ford Fairlane hardtop coupe. With a full set of features, and a killer presence on display, this […]

Sunstar 1:24 AEC Regent Bus: Double Decker Fun

Sunstar 1:24 AEC Regent Bus: Double Decker Fun

Bus models are a big part of the Sunstar lineup, and we’d seen some of these 1:24 double deckers before – but this 1946 AEC Regent really grabbed us, with its tall, skinny architecture, petite stairways and railings, and the artful little details that abound everywhere. Sunstar’s really good at making the big and little […]
Sunstar 1:24 Bedford OB: Magic Bus

Sunstar 1:24 Bedford OB: Magic Bus

Research has its rewards. For me, the payoff came when a little Internet crawling returned photos of the actual bus that Sunstar used to tool this outstanding model of a 1949 Bedford OB. Bedfords were built from 1939 to 1951, and a little more than 12,500 were made; very little change took place during that […]

Sunstar 1:18 Mercury Montclair: The Full Monty

Sunstar 1:18 Mercury Montclair: The Full Monty

It’s getting to the point that Sunstar’s origins as a maker of budget-minded models has started to fade into the past. Far be it for me to keep those hoary old days alive – especially in light of the maker’s far more successful string of exceptional, “Platinum Collection” cars. Here’s the 1956 Mercury Montclair they’ve […]
