New Color!: 1/18 Special Edition, The 1939 Ford Deluxe Coupe


We’re opening up the week with a new color option that can now be found in the wild! The factory model 1939 Ford Deluxe Coupe from our 1/18th scale Special Edition die-cast line-up is now available in a Red color option, joining its Blue variant and bumping up its current 1/18th scale variations to a total of 3! When it comes to features, you’ll still find that the Ford Deluxe Coupe supports an opening hood and trunk, a set of opening doors, full-function steering at the turn of the steering wheel, as well as 4-wheel spring suspension! In order to get your hands on this or any of our other Special Edition models, keep your eyes open for our standard Maisto packaging color-coded Blue at your local retailer!

Donk Chevy rolls out of the Maisto closet

It’s been a while since we’ve shown some of the things hiding in our deep, dark closet of prototypes and one-of-a-kind new product ideas. Several years ago, Brad (aka skidkid) built this donk from a Maisto 1:18 1972 Chevelle convertible. He installed wheels from one of our R/C cars and custom made the suspension and Lambo-style double-hinged doors. For extra bling he added monitors and speakers and he made decals for the upholstery pattern. At the time, Maisto made a line of 3″ East Coast Ryders cars in this style but we didn’t expand the idea into the larger scales…but we were ready in case the need arose.

New Victory 1:18 motorcycles coming this year

Maisto welcomes a new brand to our 1:18 scale 2-Wheelers line: Victory motorcycles. The Jackpot and the Kingpin 8 Ball tooling models have just been approved. We’ll be cutting the steel molds soon and expect the finished models to be at retailers early this summer.
