So we opened up the lines of communication to you and we have been overwhelmed by the amount of cool photos and stories we are receiving. Maisto has built a reputation for outstanding craftsmanship and an affordable, high quality die-cast model. Sometimes things aren’t tailored exactly the way some people prefer them though, and that’s when the kustomizers kick into gear and let their creativity run wild!
We received a message from Al C. who has been collecting 1/18 die-cast since 1991, and prior to that was collecting plastic and die-cast 1/24’s. Al re-discovered his passion for modeling after collecting High End models for some time started to become rather expensive and not as appealing to him. He has modded many Maisto models, adding carpet, plug wires, repainting and general detailing, and it has brought great pleasure once again to his collecting. Al says probably about 80% of his mods have been done with Maisto products.
Here are some photos of Al’s awesome customs, and some links so you can check out more of his work!
