  • Maisto 1957 CHEVROLET BEL AIR

    A new find—this one is in the Maisto Design Outlaws series:






    It is held together with screws so can be easily taken apart:

          Yep for $4 it's a nice little model! I grabbed one a few weeks back as soon as I saw it!

            Curious has to where you all are finding these single card premium Maistos, my stores only carry the transport sets.

              I found mine in a Wal-mart here in Canada.

                    Wow! no sign of them here in PEI at Wally's, more Greenlight and Tomica showing up though, and some Castline M2's but no Maisto

                      I find that the Maisto Premium stuff I want is hit & miss at Walmarts here. I have yet to see that '57 Chevy at any other Walmart around here. We're also getting more Greenlight, M2 and Tomica here too.

                        Haven't seen the ones shown, but did find this a couple days ago:

                        The image file limits have been reset. We have over-limit warnings for the past 3 months and I've had to lower the image file limits. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I know I've mentioned many times before, but it is very important to downsize images - doesn't matter if they are hosted elsewhere or here. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The new limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

                        Thank you for your understanding.

                            That one's nice too, but I think it is a different casting, or at least a different base. Yours is closer to stock height, the one Mark and I show is a gasser with a drop front axle (typical modification done back in the day). Side by side the difference would be clear.

                            I took a look to see if I have a loose example to show, I have a goodly number of the Maisto haulers, and I'm fairly certain I have an example of the 57 casting you show (might not be the same paint), but I don't have a loose one and I don't know where I packed away all those haulers.

                            BTW, the truck is a 57 Chevy as well, one of my favorites from that series along with the 38 Ford.

                              The body is probably the same but the undercarriage is different.
