AUTOart Bugatti Chiron 1:18 Scale Models

AUTOart Bugatti Chiron 1:18 Scale Models

AUTOart has released some new 2017 Bugatti Chiron 1:18 scale composite/diecast models.  All these models feature opening doors, front luggage compartment with two pieces of luggage, a removable engine cover, and an adjustable rear spoiler.  The interior is very detailed with carpeted floor boards and carbon fiber look accents.  
The real Bugatti Chiron is a beast of a super car!  Bugatti fitted the car with a 8.0L quad-turbocharged 16 cylinder engine that produces almost 1500hp.  This powerplant propels the Chiron 0-60 in 2.3 seconds and a top speed of 261 mph.  It also features an all-wheel drive system. This type of performance doesn't come cheap, as the cost of this car is about $3 million dollars.  
The AUTOart 70991 Bugatti Chiron in black with red accents is available now.  It features gloss black paint with red accents on the front and sides.  Gloss black wheels are accented with the red brake calipers.  AUTOart is releasing three other color combinations this summer.  AUTOart 70992 is Argent Silver with Dark Atlantic Blue and a tan interior.  AUTOart 70993 is  French Racing Blue with Dark Atlantic Blue and a tan interior.  AUTOart 70994 is yellow and black. 
Argent Silver and French Racing Blue will be available in July and the yellow car is expected in August.

Rupes Bigfoot LHR15 Mark III vs Rupes Bigfoot LHR21 Mark III Polisher

Rupes Bigfoot LHR15 Mark III vs Rupes Bigfoot LHR21 Mark III Polisher

Are you trying to decide between the Rupes LHR15 and LHR21 Mark III Polishers?  Both are fantastic polishing machines and in a perfect world, I would have one of each in my detailing arsenal.  If you need to decide on just one we have a breakdown of what each machine does best.  
Both the Rupes LHR15 and LHR21 Mark III polishers are dual action, random orbital machines.  The LHR15 features a 15mm orbit combined with a 5" backing plate.  The Rupes LHR21 Mark III features a 21mm orbit with a 6" backing plate. 
The LHR15 is a great machine for polishing and correcting paint.  The 15mm large orbit runs at a higher speed on a smaller 5-6" pad.  When you decrease pad size, it increases the cutting power.  The LHR21 works best on larger vehicles or in a body shop/panel off setting.  It accomplishes cutting and polishing with a larger orbit than the 15mm unit and a lower speed.  In terms of cutting and finishing speed, both machines are nearly identical.  
The Rupes LHR15 and LHR21 Mark III polishers have many of the same convenience features.  They both have dual rubber bump stops on the back so you can set the unit down without it tipping over or sliding.  The speed dial is now larger, easier to adjust, and is protected by the rear bump stop. The new polishers also feature a progressive trigger that allows for adjusting the speed of the unit on the fly.  This helps when priming pads, working on complex body curves and throttling back when working edges.  
In summary, the Rupes LHR15 and LHR21 Mark III polishers are both great units.  The LHR15 is the most versatile unit to use on smaller panels and areas.  The LHR21 advantage comes when working on larger work area panels.  Both correct and finish well.  Some detailers have converted the LHR21 to a 5" backing plate to gain more cutting power, but some have found vibration is a negative side effect with the smaller backing plate.  The machine is engineered and balanced to work with the 6".  We do sell the Rupes 5" backing plates if you wish to explore this option.  If you have any other questions about these polishers, please contact us.  Happy polishing!

Update: Highway 61 18007 Steve McQueen's 1969 Chevrolet C-10 Baja 1000 Truck 1:18 Scale Diecast

Update: Highway 61 18007 Steve McQueen's 1969 Chevrolet C-10 Baja 1000 Truck 1:18 Scale Diecast

Highway 61 has informed us that the much anticipated release of the 1969 Chevrolet C-10 Baja 1000 Truck in 1:18 scale will be in June.  After quite a few delays, we now have pictures of the actual diecast and it looks great!  The diecast features graphics of the original livery when the truck was driven in the Mexican 1000 Rally (Baja 1000).  It comes with a detailed interior, opening doors, hood and tailgate, spare tire, and a detailed engine compartment.  Like other Highway 61 releases it also features a rotating driveshaft and rubber tires.  Part number Highway 61 18007. 
The original truck comes with a lot of history.  The truck was prepared by Vic Hickey as a baja race truck and raced quite a few times.  Steve McQueen purchased the truck in 1970.  Under his ownership it was raced to victory at Riverside by off-road racing legend Mickey Thompson.  In 1972, McQueen sold the truck to fund divorce proceedings.  A employee of Vic Hickey purchased the truck and used it as a farm truck for many years before being restored.  The truck was sold at a Mecum Auction in 2013 for $60,000.
