Q: Diecast Cars
I want a model of my year Firebird but can not find any on the market. Where can I find one or can I have a company make one for me.
A: If the plan is to get some diecast maker to build a Firebird of some kind, larger than the existing MatchBox or 1:43 scale cars exisiting now, you will need to contact the makers themselves.
The following is a list of diecast model car makers:
ERTL, UT, Vitesse, Herpa, Detail Cars, Best, Brumm, Bang, Burago, Jouef(Eagle Race), Anson, Solido, Revell
Ertl (now owned by Racing Champions) recently released the 1.43 scale 1967 Firebird 400 coupe in Plum Mist (copy of Jim Mattison’s famous car), often mistaken as black. (http://www.ertltoys.com/)
Vitesse (looks like mostly Euro cars) (http://www.vitessegroup.com/)
Herpa (a German company) (http://www.herpa.de/herpa_e.htm)
Detail Cars (looks like a distributor of 1:43 scale cars) (http://www.car43.ch/detail.htm)
Jouef (US distributor for Joef) (http://www.w-s-o.com/JouefModelsIncUsa/)
Revell (maker of diecast and plastic model cars. Next to Ertl/Racing Champions, your best bet) (http://www.revell-monogram.com/)
