*A SELECTION OF THE LATEST DIECAST MODEL RELEASES AS CHOSEN BY THE DIECAST TEAM:
FIRE BRIGADE MODELS
MAN Pump Ladder
LIMIT: NOT SPECIFIED
REF NO: 76MFE001
This newly tooled appliance from the Avon Fire & Rescue Service has some lovely detail, from the realistic side shutters and livery to the three roof-mounted ladder sets.
Aston Martin DBR.9
PRICE: £32.99 LIMIT: NOT SPECIFIED SCALE: 1/43
REF NO: GTM078
Aston Martins look so much more aggressive in race colours, and this stunning No 10 car is no exception. The metallic paint looks great and the detail is up to the usual excellent Ixo standards.
Nissan Murano 2009
PRICE: £25.99 LIMIT: NOT SPECIFIED SCALE: 1/43
REF NO: JC106
If you’re into four-wheel drive vehicles, J Collection’s Murano, in fetching grey-bronze metallic paint, could be just the ticket. Swanky alloys add a bit of ‘bling’ and the excellent interior is fully visible courtesy of the open front windows and double sunroof… albeit with tinted glass.
Cat 416 Backhoe Loader
PRICE: £60-70 SCALE: 1/32
For fans of the 1980s styling, Norscot has released a 1/32 scale model of the Cat 416 Backhoe Loader with open ROPs canopy, centre-mount backhoe digging boom – which features a very realistic range of movement with folding stabilisers – and a fully positionable front loader arms and tipping general purpose bucket.
