Sleek new toolings from First Gear!

First Gear has recently announced a new tooling for their Tread Marks Collector Club Series. We were barely able to get our hands on these, because they are so very limited. I cannot wait to see this out of box, with that lovely black and shiny finish!

It's an International Durastar Armored Truck, equipped with all the classic features of an armored truck:

  • Blacked-out windows
  • Chrome mirrors
  • Chrome fender
  • Gun ports on the body
  • Authentic diamond-plate detail
In 1/34 scale, it measures 7 1/2" long, 3.5: wide and 3.23" high. Quite a substantial piece, I think. Now, this is not a bank so don't start to think that you'll keep your money stash here... it still belongs in the bank, ok? Even so, this model promises to look stunning on your desk or anywhere else you can fit it!

But that's not all! You may have seen the previous models featuring the City of Chicago graphics in the attractive light blue color. Well, we've got one more for you, in a nice vintage style, since the others seemed to fly out our doors! This time it's a 1/34 rear load garbage truck, featuring a detailed cab interior, with opening hood and complete engine detail. This vintage body features a lifting bucket that opens packer plate, which also opens the rear door - the body of the truck also tilts and dumps!
