Some new IST Tatras coming out. Kinda fancy the blue one. Carmodel.net's description says they are Fox models which might mean they are Czech release. May be hard to get. Not sure though.

I have the last 3, they came out more than 3 years ago and yes, they are Fox models. The "Fire" car is just as old, I just never bothered with it.

The 30's car looks better to me than the 60's version to me.

For quite some time I've been meaning to add one of those 603s to my collection, but haven't find them at good prices. Maybe I will, once they're sold as IST models... :roll:

Orange and white pick-up looks pretty cool (with load/bed cover)

I saw those too. Trucks are a nice alternative to the NEO, if the same year. Doesn't matter too much to me if not. Hope they turn out well. Would like that orange truck more if that bed cover came off. Wish that IXO would have made them. They do a pretty good job. No need to be resin. We need a cheap diecast alternative. Now would be a great time for someone like IXO to step it up with the American cars as it seems they are growing in popularity now.

X3 on the need for affordable American 1:43s in diecast of PMA or IXO quality. Now I will NOT buy a F100 from NEO, thanks PremiumX, now where can I buy this ?

I absolutely love the PremiumX Ford Vans and trucks as shown - will be high on my list! One point, that others probably noticed, the trucks are NOT 1978 and 1979 models, much earler as in pre-1973 :? Nice nonetheless and it seems (from these photos) that PremiumX is improving greatly over what I bought from them back in '09!

BB, you are right!
I missed the year on the pickups. They are 1972 or older as you say.

Replicarz has the vans and 3 Broncos listed. Perhaps the pick-ups will join them.

I don't like vans and pickups very much, but those models do look quite interesting! :)

You're absolutely correct BB about the year. The funny thing is, it even says 1979 on the base. I just copied and pasted it from the eBay seller.

Are any of the Broncos white?
Do they come with a tiny OJ Figure? ;)

What a 2-Tone! :oops:

Clearly taking the moulds from the James Bond Collection and upgrading them a bit.

As much as I like the Ford Van and F Truck, these Bronco IIs are not so impressive :x Let's hope the 2-tone one is not really gold and green or is it just my eyes :lol: I remember these when new (even test drove one) and they were NEVER this color, at least the accent color to the sills. The dividing paint line on the police version is awful and the fire truck version is sort of OK in terms of paint. I'd buy the 'Eddie Bauer' version so long as it's no more than $20.

This series would have been MUCH more interesting IF the first generation Bronco of 1966-1977 was modelled :x

As far as the OJ comment, he was driving the larger F Series based Bronco, again it too would have been a better choice than a Bronco II. OK, I admit, I'm not a Bronco II fan anymore :lol:

Thanks for the photos Tom, in particular the Tatra! I must get one of those :shock: Would be even better if the final version of this car with monochrome trim/bumpers would be offered, would buy it too! Like these big Tatras, such an enigma to the Western world!

So who is going to step up and buy the Yugo then. You know we need it for the letter Y in our game.

C'mon somebody take one for the team :twisted:
