Just a curious question,

Are there any quality Dicast replicas of some of the Reno Racers for sale?

As a NASCAR fan I know that there is big money in dicast, to the point that where they will use a different paint scheme on a car 2 or 3 times a season just so the collector will buy some more cars to keep his collection current

Blacksheep Not sure on the answer to that one but I know of at least one team looking for a quality supplier of same.

Do you have any of the names of the NASCAR suppliers?

Wayne,

Revel and Action are the two biggest and the most colectable die cast car makers and supliers for the NASCAR cars.
It would be a good idea to maybee get some of the planes in a 1/24th scale die cast modle. I would be willing to bet that they would become quite collectible, as the NASCAR cars have become.

Good idea Blacksheep.

There is only one I know of....I have it:

Miss America had their own made and if you get a hold of Bob Avery (Via Missa.com), you can own one.

Glenn Do they still have any? I'd forgotten that they did have die-cast, only remembering the painted wood ones they had. They might be a good starting place for info on where to get a custom one made ey?

Thanks for the heads up..

Some one should check with Hot Wheels (Mattel) and Matchbox. I have 5 of the Matchbox WWII 1/72 die cast fighters and they was very well done and good detail for the size. Paint schemes are good. The p-51 is the best die cast aircraft i have seen on small scale yet. They beat the Corgi stuff from England.

Bob Hoover was offering a die cast "Ol' Yeller" when I was down there in '97...

I just ran across a 1:48th scale Miss America manufactured by Armour, available through http://www.3000toys.com (I tried to see if it was available through the Miss America website, but the "shop" link didn't work.)

Kyosho have a range of readymade, really nice-looking 1/72 models, including Rare Bear and Red Baron. Go to www.hlj.com, then look for Kyosho products.

Those puppies are pretty darn nice, but 6800 yen comes out to just over $50 USD... Kinda pricey.

Here's what the Kyosho Reno racers set looks like: http://www.intsysint.com/misc/112C0405.jpg.

As far as I know they are generally not sold outside Japan.

HobbyLink Japan sell to the world, so I'm sure you can buy their racers. I have myself bought some stuff from them here to Sweden.
