It's Toy Fair time!

It's the time of year for the die-cast industry to announce all their new releases for 2010, and we have been busy! We are still adding new products to our website, but I did want to take a moment to show you a couple of special items.

The 1/72 Douglas A-1H Skyraider VA-176 , USS Intrepid was called the "Mig Killer." It comes with the following:

1) 3pcs fuel tanks

2) 2pcs 2,000 bombs

3) 6pcs Mk82 bombs

4) 4pcs LAU-3 rocket pods

5) 2pcs LAU-10 rocket pods

Professionally painted.
All markings pad applied for superb results.
Crew figure
Comes with display stand.
Landing gear can be displayed up or down.
Extremely sought after by collectors.

We don't see a lot of commercial planes here, and I am always excited to see one. This is an American Airlines Lockheed L-188A Electra, N6129A. At a scale of 1/200, there is minimal use of plastic on this model to maintain the stability and integrity of the die-cast metal.  All markings are tampo (pad) applied, so no stickers to fade or peel! Other features include:

Free-spinning propellers.
Rolling wheels.
Landing gear can be removed or added.
Model comes with a display stand.
A brief history of the aircraft type and the airline is supplied with each model.

Now, we have a sad announcement today, as my fellow blogger, Marley, is leaving We wish her all the best in her endevours, and she will certainly be missed here. Rest assured though, that I will still be bringing you the die-cast news as often as possible! I hope everyone has a great weekend and stays warm. We're expecting even more snow, and hopefully the last of it!
