Auto World is proud to introduce its new line of 1:43 scale resin models. Known for highly-detailed 1:18 scale die-cast vehicles, Auto World is taking their development experience to a new scale and in a new material.
Resin is an optimal material because it is generally easy to manipulate and form into molds, it is also creates a very fine detailed model. Resin allows manufacturers to create limited edition high quality replicas that are showcase ready right out of the box. The limited edition Auto World resin series includes a clear display case with a black plastic base.
“Our background in developing authentically scaled and detailed vehicles make this line a natural addition to our Auto World brand,” noted Tony Karamitsos, Auto World Brand Manager.
Production begins with an all new casting of the popular GM model the classic ‘77 Pontiac Firebird. The Firebird will be available in May 2013 in three color choices; black body with black interior; yellow body with red interior; and white body with blue interior. The models feature authentically scaled graphics, fully detailed chassis, intricately designed interiors, Goodyear poly stem radial tires, and chrome foil detailing.
In June, Auto World will launch a 1:43 scale version from their popular Silver Screen Machines line, the 1958 Plymouth Fury from the movie Christine. The vehicle will feature a red body with detailed red interior, dark tinted windows, working headlights and chrome hub caps with white wall tires.
