Who else wants a 1:18 scale diecast version of there car!?

Shot in the dark but ive searched high and low and all i can find is the 82

I would kill for a red IROC.. If we had enough interest or buyers i think one of the manufacturers may build one

Im more than happy to call all of them and bug/beg/annoy them all till we get a yes, who else would be in?

Wasn't Scott working on this?

I'm pretty happy with the full size versions, the little ones just collect dust on the shelf.

This is the one I have

http://www.jadatoysinc.com/products?...genum=4&id=833

They seem to keep the same model # 91283 and just change the colors. I think they are only producing black and red right now. If anyone knows where they are still selling the blue, please let me know. I'd love to get two, one for home and one for work.

Re: Who else wants a 1:18 scale diecast version of there car!?

sure, I'd buy one . would love one like mine. My wheels are kinda similar in style to the ones on that red third gen, but not that huge.

Re: Who else wants a 1:18 scale diecast version of there car!?

Those are nicely detailed, but they only make the 1982 Z28 and base model 1985 IROC-Z. I'ld like to see 85-87 TPI Z28 and IROC-Z models, 1988-1990 IROC-Z models at least with TPI. If they can justify the expense of the mold changes I'ld also like to see 1991-1992 Z28 models with the hood blisters, high rise wing, and ducted ground effects.

Re: Who else wants a 1:18 scale diecast version of there car!?




Here's a model of my 91 GTA. There are no built models of 91-92 Firebirds (that I know of) so I took a swing at building this one myself. Came out half decent, but I definitely could have had more patience. I'd love to get a model of my IROC too, but the examples above ^^ look like the proportions are horrible. May just be the pics though as I've never seen one in person
