Apex Replicas have just announce their second range of high end detail diecast models and it's the one that we have a lot of people, the Ford EF and EL Falcon V8 touring cars.
These 1:18 scale items will be produced in high detail with opening bonnet, boot, and all 4 doors. The images you see here are of the first ever decorated hand sample of the EF and plain body blue EL. Please note that these are the very first painted hand sample models and not final production items.
Cars such as these that have never before been done in 1:18 scale and have such a large number of different versions that can be produced deserve to be done to the highest standard and using their contacts in China they have enlisted a development team and tool shop that have been responsible for some of the most desirable and high quality models from the last few years to develop the tooling for these items.
The series will begin with cars run by the iconic Dick Johnson Racing and announce other teams and drivers in the following months. The plan is to release the first DJR car early in 2014 so keep an eye out in the next few weeks for confirmation on the first cars that will be released.
In conjunction with this announcement we have recently managed to get John Bowe and Dick Johnson's approval to sign the Certificates of Authenticity supplied with each model. With such a broad range of models to produce we cannot wait to get underway and start delivering these high quality models to our faithful collectors.
