Great New International Harvester Models from First Gear!

One of my favorite periods in automotive history is the 1970s. There's something about classic styling coupled with exciting advances in technology that make it an unforgettable era. You may think I'm talking about the appeal of muscle cars, like Corvettes, Thunderbirds, and the like, but right now I'm all about trucks. 

I love classic farm trucks; the boxier, the better. These new First Gear models certainly fit the bill!

#40-0318 - 1/25 Scale
1979 International Scout Terra Pickup

Both of these awesome 1/25th scale models feature opening doors, detailed undercarriages and interiors, incredibly accurate mechanical details, spare tire mountings, realistic factory paint schemes, and free-rolling wheels.  

#40-0374 - 1/25 Scale
1979 International Scout Traveler 
Personally, I love both of these models. There's no way I could choose between them, so I'll be picking up both for my collection! Head over to 3000toys.com and get yours before they're gone, and find more great models from First Gear!

Hello from Nuremberg!

Spielwarenmesse 2016 is officially underway, and the big news is Diecast Masters! It was very exciting to finally see the new and updated Caterpillar models on display complete with their operators in place. Yes, you'll notice a figure is now included in the drivers seat. You'll also notice the new metal packaging for the Highline models is quite impressive. The packaging for the Core Classic Series has received an updated look, plus the inner packaging is a clam shell with NO WIRE TIES!!! As good as these look in pictures, they look even better in person.




 







The lights on the new underground models are pretty great, right? They are not ready for release yet, but they are certainly something to look forward to later this year. Diecast Masters is now available for pre-order at 3000toys.com. We are expecting our first shipment in early March so now is the time to reserve yours. Shop now at 3000toys.com.
