We’re halfway through the week and with that, we’re taking a quick look at a model in our 1/24th scale Maisto Design: Outlaws series, the 1965 Chevrolet El Camino! Coming out the gate in the color combination of Black and Red, the El Camino rocks some beautiful pin-striping on the hood, a dropped body, and custom performance and detail parts to pull the Outlaws look together! This die-cast model also features a set of opening doors as well as an opening hood to allow you an even better look at those parts! In order to find it or any of the other Outlaws, keep your eyes open for our custom Maisto Design packaging, color-coded Purple and labeled OUTLAWS!
It’s Wednesday and today we’re taking a quick look at a color option from our 1/24th scale Maisto Design: Outlaws series for the 1929 Ford Model A! That’s right, the Ford Model A can be found in the color combination of Yellow and Black with the Number 2 found on the side with a fading effect! On top of its custom paint and performance details, this die-cast model features a set of opening doors to give you a better peek at all of its inner details! In order to find it on your local retailer’s shelves, keep an eye out for our custom Maisto Design packaging color-coded Purple and labeled OUTLAWS!
It’s officially Monday and we’re back in office spending some quick time with the 1955 Buick Century coming straight out of our 1/24th scale Maisto Design: Outlaws series! The era of suped-up hot rods and custom rides is what defines Outlaws and this die-cast Buick Century definitely makes the cut with and Gold and Black color combo, along with some Silver trim and hidden Black flames to boot! Utilizing a set of opening doors as well as an opening engine compartment, you can get a beautiful view of the custom details and the performance details under the hood! In order to find it on your local retailer’s store shelves, be sure to keep an eye out for our special Maisto Design packaging seen above, color-coded Purple and labeled OUTLAWS!
It’s officially Friday, the last work week day before the New Year and we’d thought we’d send it off with one last quick look at the 1/24th scale Volkswagen Beetle from our Maisto Design: Outlaws series! This die-cast model loves to ride low & slow in custom Blue paint, a set of fresh rims and vertically opening doors as well as an opening engine compartment! Popping open one the latter two will grant you an even better look at all the details tucked inside like the view from behind the dash or the engine itself! In order to find it along with the rest of the Maisto Design: Outlaws at your local retailer, be sure to keep an eye out for our special Maisto Design packaging, color-coded Purple and labeled OUTLAWS!
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.
She is a BEAST!
and looks great from behind!
is that? Holy Moly, yest it is….
a Skull Knob shifter…..wowzers. Here’s a little close-up of the guts. Hard to see, but she has some awesome bomber style seats as well. You can bet I will be designing some bitchin’ paint schemes for these, Whitewall Rebels and Outlaws of the world unite!
Seeing as how Summer is officially here, it seems like there is an event every weekend. Just a week ago was Ink-N-Iron, this past weekend was the L.A. Roadster Show, so many great hot rod and kustom shows. The guys in CAPD are a very diverse group, but we all have one thing in common, WE LOVE CARS! Particularly, cars from the past! (For me, it’s Hot Rods!) But, whether it’s hot rods, muscle cars, gassers, lead sleds, vintage drag cars, low riders, Cadillacs, it doesn’t matter, we love ’em all! Here are a couple photos I took back in January of 2009 and never posted of some hot rods Maisto has produced. If you enjoy these, I will post more!
In the center of this pic is a custom convertible 29 Ford I chopped up for fun.
This little guy was from the Gas Caps/Gassers collection. A tooned out version of a ’49 Merc! Still one of my fav’s!
and here is a new Freeway Foto I snapped of a bad ass Hot Rod Rig on my way home the other day. It’s too bad I couldn’t get a better pic, but I think you can see how rad this thing was!
Boy we do have some cool castings here at Maisto, some that have been pretty much stock for their entire existence in our catalog. Well we here in CAPD had to put a stop to that. I mean what good are classics if you can’t have a little fun with them, right? A little drop here, some wheel swaps, a fresh new coat of kustom paint, some pinstriping, and voilá! You have yourselves some fancy lookin’ sleds! 1:18 scale AllStars Outlaws…
we all see it everyday, people taking art that doesn’t belong to them and posting it on a blog or using it as a picture on a website, but hey when it happens to us…Maisto, we don’t like it and we don’t take it lightly. Especially when they blatantly use the exact same artwork, with a minor, very minor change.
this work was created by me for the front of a Maisto Outlaws t-shirt, you’ll see the original artwork first, then the fake/copy version after sporting some new verbage about “staying true”. how does one “stay true”, when you steal someone else’s artwork? a question for you all to ponder. down with the fakes!!!!
I would post the link to their page, but i don’t want to give them any kind of recognition or spike in traffic. if you want to look it up, just google it. don’t mess with the bull buddy…
So every week we are hard at work to bring you the best models, the best designs, and overall the coolest stuff for you to collect, play with, roll across the kitchen floor, adorn that awesome cubicle of yours, or even sit on your fancy executive desk. But there is a couple of times a week that we get very excited about, and that is when we get a killer “grab bag” (well ok, it’s not really a bag, it’s more like a box, but you get the picture) from HK. When this box comes in we are like kids in a candy store, or sometimes like cavemen around their first glimpse of fire, it gets pretty exciting some times. This week we got the first samples of the ’50 Merc, yes this is the same ’50 Merc designed by our friends at “Cacho Customs!” These are just a few colorways. Keep your eyes peeled for this one!
