To me, the biggest news was
A new Bullit detail set for the Revell 1/12 Mustang from Scale Motorsports. Matt Wells had a prototype there, and, as is usual for Mattís offerings, looked fantastic.

A 1/25 Packard Caribbean, 53 El Dorado Convertible and 427 Cobra from Creative Miniatures

3 new wheel sets from Pegasus as well as their now selling Model Parts Specialties cast metal engine parts and accessories.

Otherwise, no new model news was available from Trumpeter and some new Aoshima kits (many announced at the recent Japan Model show) were displayed.

Hobby Gear is updating their Car Show diorama set and has a tire shop and landscaper series coming out. Phoenix Toys showed a 1957 Chevy Convertible in 1/25 scale that is the equal of Danbury Mint/Franklin Mint and selling for $99.57. They have about 200 (itís a limited edition) and is available from their website.

There were some interesting die cast including a 1/24 2010 Corvette Grand Sport and Pagoni Zonda from Testorís.

Plus there are several new HO scale cars that can be added to Woodland Scenics fantastic (but Pre-Built) dioramas. There HO scale diner is fantastic.

Minicraft also displayed a series of 1/16 Model A kits, some with Flathead 4 and others with Flathead 8 engines.
