千呼萬喚: 1970 Dodge Challenger Vanishing Point by Greenlight

By admin, August 26, 2013 08:57

Greenlight Collectibles has announced a 1:18 diecast model of the 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T (SKU: GL12896, Non-Limited) as featured in the 1971 movie, Vanishing Point, to be released in December 2013.

終於盼來了這款白色的1970 Dodge Challenger R/T,雖然很多收藏家都覺得Greenlight做的Challenger外型不太準確,但是面對價格高企近乎USD300的絕版Highway61 50554,這個似乎是唯一的折衷選擇。

Update Jan 11, 2015

今天在eBay上看到這台更為罕有的BYC特別訂制敞篷版50554,據說只生產了12台而已。

另外還發現了一台自制的舊化版Vanishing Point。

最後原來還有更利害的場景版

Update Jan 7, 2018

It turns out Greenlight’s Vanishing Point is a total disappointment! The following comment is from John Fox.

Noting what I found on the 24 units I purchased:

  • 19, had at least one rusted hood hinge.
  • 12, had both rusted. By this I mean red noticeable rust
  • 6, had broken clamshells
  • 4, had broken or non correctly assembled front suspension
  • 7, had very crooked R/T, Challenger or Dodge emblems
  • 4, had glue globs on the painted body

Of the 12 I kept I still have some with rusted hinges I will have to fix when I create convertibles from them. I will also have to fix a couple emblems but if I sent every one back that as some issue I would have only kept 4 out of 24.

Below are the issues with every one that was purely cost cutting IMHO.

ENGINE:

  • Missing any decals
  • No firewall detail at all outside of MC and wiper motor
  • No painted battery caps or terminals
  • Positive cable glued to the wiper motor
  • Manifold mounted backwards (let me also note, I have no idea what the motor is out of. I have in my parts bin, every highway 61 mopar engine made and this motor isn’t like any of them)
  • Engine block with plug wire holes but exhaust manifolds mounted so low they are exposed.
  • Cheap distributor cap with the molded 4 together plug wires running to each side under the exhaust

INTERIOR:

  • No carpeting
  • No painted sill plates
  • Door, steering wheel, shifter handle woodgrain attempt completely different color then dash and center console color which is right
  • Seat belt clasps are different and cheaper
  • No sun visors at all. Holes there to mount them, used the correct rear view mirror with the indent for the bar that holds the visors but nothing is there.

TRUNK:

  • No spare decal
  • No trunk mat nor attempt to paint it remotely close to grey just satin black painted

THE REST:

  • Wheels are painted dark grey with chrome trim ring. NEVER was this a wheel in the Challenger/Cuda lineup. How this alone got approved via the licenser I have no idea. Just looks stupid.
  • No chassis detail (painted fuel lines and such)
  • No emergency brake cable (separate wires)
  • N0 torsion bars (31 years every Mopar had them, first thing I noticed when I turned the first one over)
  • Horrible attempt at chassis overspray using the wrong color white IMO.

Outside of all this the model is perfect. Given whats typed it really should be a $50-75 (maybe) piece, not a $125.00 one as advertised.

Exoto最新推出的3台Jaguar D-Type

By admin, July 19, 2013 09:30

這次推出的D-Type Painted Nose有3個顏色,分別是紅、白、黃(最好看而且是Moss的戰車),價格幾乎依然是AA的十倍以上。看來Exoto完全改變了銷售方向,現在只集中服務消費金字塔頂端的客戶,這是否真的能改變Exoto多年來的頹勢那就真的要時間來證明了。

Exoto以外的選擇

By admin, May 17, 2013 00:50

Autoart終於在2013年日本靜岡模型展上放出了這個”鴿子”,看樣子應該會成為Exoto以外的唯一選擇。

即將推出: Lamborghini Countach LP400 Orange (74647)

By admin, May 3, 2013 10:10

AA即將推出橙色的LP400,作為70年代經典中的經典,Countach早已在很多汽車收藏家心裡成為了一個跨時代的設計Icon!

其實大約10年前日本的車模製造廠京商就已經推出過一系列以Countach為主的1比18模型。

仔細觀察比較下,京商10年前的功力可說完全不下於晚輩AA。無論是外型的準確還原、全車的開合、部件的緊密程度,輪廓、燈飾、內室的精緻方面都無懈可擊。

大家唯一的分別是AA的沒了兩側的倒後鏡(應該是前期版本),內飾顏色為深棕色,還有就是多了2根引擎支撐柱。

74647a

當然AA這近200歐元的價格比起當年京商的要貴了將近5倍,其實早就有車模前輩看穿AA近年的營銷伎倆,就是把這些經典熱買的產品全歸納入黑盒Signature系列,這樣就可以輕易地自抬身價了,對於這種不太高明的手法,自然惹來不少非議。

如果說Exoto近6000的是博物館質量的車模,那2500左右的CMC則是精品,而京商7百多的是玩具,那么這些近1600的黑盒AA肯定是自抬身价、濫竽充數的精品玩具。:)

京商Kyosho 2013年將會推出的產品

By admin, March 17, 2013 21:38

今天發現了最新Kyosho的2013年目錄 (136MB)。

001

不為人知的七八十年代的名車De Tomaso,為何同期又有如此多相似的設計如Mercedes-Benz  C111、Lamborghini Urraco等就不得而知了。

002

再次推出的高端版250GTO,京商編號為08435R和之前的08433A比較,外型上幾乎沒有任何分別,唯一的差別就是在車頭兩旁橙色燈下面多了兩盞小射燈,以及內飾變成了黑色。

003

升級版的365以及Competition尾巴敲了起來,其實並不好看,加上比以前貴3倍的價格,預計這款銷情不太樂觀。

004

512TR (編號08423RM) 這款的顏色應該就是以前BBR/KY合作過的F430酒紅色版。黑色的應該也不太受歡迎,因為內飾也是漆黑一團,完全沒了鮮明的對比。倒是之前那款期待已久的黃色Testarossa反而在2013年目錄里消失得無影無蹤。

005

期待97年紅黃色版本的F355 F1以及95年的Challenge紅黃兩色,希望京商今年認真改進F355的線條,別再令我們失望了。

006

之前錯過了綠色的Countach Prototype第一版,這次肯定不會再放過這個罕有的概念第二版,幸虧這次不是什麼高端版。

007

京商過往的JOTA只有橙色是沒尾翼的版本,08315P應該就是再版。而這個棗紅色的08315PG應該可以彌補之前錯過粉紅色JOTA的遺憾。

008

另一個令我看不懂的產品,什麼叫KPGC110運動版呢﹖不如直接叫”騙錢”版算了。

009

我之前之所以放棄了1/43 TSM和KY出的Phantom EWB為得就是等待這台神車,可惜內飾為什麼不是那經典的米色呢﹖
010

唯一令我有興趣的就是這個初版單耳朵的紅髮女郎! 直到現在京商只推出過白色的單耳版本的Testarossa,希望很快就可以推出紅色的1比18版本。

011

想不到TSM和FUJIMI合作後又馬上見了京商和手辦車模新人FrontiArt一齊合組推出經典”龜車”,證明了迅速冒起的FrontiArt決非幸運,其創廠之作如One-77、LP700等精細手工奠定了它如今在江湖上的地位,連一線大哥也對其刮目相看。

CMC 2013開始向BBR看齊了!

By admin, February 25, 2013 18:27

看樣子CMC也開始步入了JS的行列,各式各樣、五花八門的款式和拉花今年將會逐漸推出市場,連品質稍差的引擎都拿來單獨做個產品,真的很犀利啊!

這也難怪CMC,因為哪有商家有錢不賺的道理,看到別家都這樣沒良心的去經營了,辛苦把持了幾年後,先是關閉自家論壇以杜絕反對聲音,再而順波逐流地如其它JS般沉淪了下去,可惜,可惜啊,我一直還以為CMC是車模界一個出淤泥而不染擁有清高氣節的生意人,看來我又錯了。

Autoart 2013 Coming Soon (Update)

By admin, January 30, 2013 10:30

想不到AA終於拿到了瑪莎拉蒂的版權,另外就是會推出萬眾期待經典的PORSCHE 993,當然UT 993的市場價值仍然會依舊,因為AA的993樣板車頭燈明顯做小了,即是還是老問題: 外型不準確,之前的保時捷959也存在同樣問題,Exoto的959車型準確多了,所以能繼續保值。

最後這堆驚喜很可能又是AA在”放空槍”,根據過往經驗,要完全實現至少要等上3-5年。

可能是做工最精致的Jaguar D-Type

By admin, November 23, 2012 18:05

相比起Autoart 10年前的捷豹D-Type,Exoto XS系列的這個產品精密程度當然是完全致勝,只是价格方面同樣以16倍的致命程度非理性上升,看來以后只有車模收藏金字塔頂端的客戶才能負擔的起。

當然,即使AA的D-Type現在也是奇貨可居,最新市場成交价往往也要超過400美金。

另外其實AA也曾經出過這款特別的D-TYPE,還有MOSS老爺的簽名!

我怀疑根本就是同一個模具,只不過Exoto現在再自行精密加工部件。
