*A SELECTION OF THE LATEST DIECAST MODEL RELEASES AS CHOSEN BY THE DIECAST TEAM:
Dodge Viper GTS Coupe
LIMIT: NOT SPECIFIED
REF NO: 18-12041
This lump of American muscle is definitly eye-catching with its metallic blue paint and go-faster stripes. It’s a good option for collectors on a budget and has a fair interior, high-shine alloys and good engine detail under the opening bonnet.
Morris Minor Ice Cream Van
PRICE £6.95 LIMIT NOT SPECIFIED SCALE 1/26 REF NO TY4667
Nothing brings back childhood memories quite like an ice cream van... and this is a worthy example. In sky blue and custard yellow, with Walls branding, it has decent chrome trim and the graphics are good. We particularly like the product menu next to the window, but it is devoid of detail in the rear compartment – 99 and a flake anyone?
Lexus LS600hL 2008
PRICE £25.99 LIMIT NOT SPECIFIED SCALE 1/43 REF NO JC165
Here’s a fine replica of the luxrious Lexus, in Dark Blue Mica paint and with some pleasing flourishes of detail. The interior is lifelike, with sumptuous seats and the rear screen is also convincing.
Porsche 964 Turbo
PRICE £31 LIMIT NOT SPECIFIED SCALE 1/18 REF NO 18026
As budget models go, this 964 should please anyone who’s watching the pennies. Its black and white bucket seats are well-rendered, along with the engine.
The doors open and the wheels are decent facsimilies. The paint finish is also respectable for the bargain price.
