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 European cars(http://www.vitessegroup.com/ — A dead link now)
Herpa — (a German company) (http://www.herpa.de/herpa_e.htm)
Exact Detail by Lane Automotive — They produced a number of 1/18 scale First Generation Firebirds. (http://www.exactdetail.com)
A few examples:
Jouef — (US distributor for Joef) (http://www.w-s-o.com/JouefModelsIncUsa/ — A dead link now)
Revell — (maker of diecast and plastic model cars. Next to Ertl/Racing Champions, your best bet) (http://www.revell-monogram.com/)
