2011 Elite Transports “SNEAK PEEKS”

We received some images from our factory the other day regarding our 2011 1:64 Elite Transports. That’s right, twenty-eleven Elite Transports. So, until we get the official word from the licensees that they are approved and good to go – here are some sneak peeks. We’ll post full images soon.

Well thanks for looking and check back soon for the full image update.

New Blog Topic! Maisto “In The Wild!”

We love to see the final product of our hard work, blood (yes, sometimes blood), sweat, and tears (for the softer guys.) So when we go do a store check (See Rick’s post on last week’s fiasco), we like to see what other products are out there, get inspired, and yes, catch a glimpse of our product out “in the wild” as we like to call it. Here are some shots I took on my iPhone of some recent product that we’ve found.

Up Close and Personal with Maisto’s new 1:24th Scale 29 Ford Model A!

I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about one of our latest castings, a 1:24th scale 29 Ford Model A. We have two variations, a more subtle custom version and a chopped and dropped hot rod version. Charles and I (CASTRO) worked together to bring you the two different versions. I didn’t work on the graphics this time, but I can’t wait to get my hands on one! What I did do was take Charles’ already awesome more traditional look, and hacked it up stretched it out, and slammed it to the ground. Just how I like ’em!

Here is the first style that will show up in Maisto’s Special Edition line. She looks purrrdy in Red.

Here she is in yellow, very Hot! Makes you want to take her for a run down the two-lane blacktop!

Here is…get ready for it…the kustom version, graphics by our boy JCUriarte. I like the two-tone color combo.

and here, just the way I like ’em. Flat black with a little red & white pinstriping. Lookin’ pretty bad ass! Yes those are “suicide” doors.
