Making Trax for 2017

By Maz Woolley

 

The latest announcement by Trax of Australia shows two models in their Select Series which are bound to be of considerable interest and which have already got US collectors asking if Trax can produce them in LHD. These are 1:43 scale resin models made in China for Australia.

1951 Ford Custom twin spinner.

 

This classic Fordor looks to be very nicely modelled. Most models of Fords of the early 1950s are of the ground breaking 1949/50 car with its single spinner in the radiator as modelled by Dinky, Precision Miniatures  amongst others. Brooklin have modelled a 1951 but as the up-market Victoria Coupe

1965 Ford Galaxie 500

 

A real classic from Ford this has been modelled many times but the new model from Trax looks very crisp with the chromework round the windows looking very good indeed.

Trax Club Members Model

 

This years Club Members Model is a Holden FC Panel Van from 1958 in Ansett ANA livery. I think that the model is slightly spoiled by the Trax Club 2017 Member printing on the door which removes its authenticity – what do readers think about that?
