Trax Models is a range of diecast model cars and buses in the scales of 1:24, 1:43 and 1:76 produced by the Australian company Top Gear. The company was formed in 1986 by Robert Hill, previously General Manager of Matchbox Collectibles.
The Trax car range includes Holdens, Ford Falcons, Monaros, Valiant Chargers and Toranas. New additions to the Trax range are recognised in the media.

Other models are sourced from dies held by Exclusive First Editions. Trux also produces heavy vehicles and fire engines that were all driven on Australian roads at some time.

I've recently signed up to playtest Gaslands, which is Mad Max style post Apocalyptic style racing game, using Matchbox size diecast cars with weapons stuck to them. Putting Tabletop gaming aside I've been playing the Beta of Tom Clancy's The Division and all I can say is that I enjoyed my time in the game, Its a mash-up of CoD, Battlefield, Fallout and World of Warcraft, that's the best I can describe it.... Very good game, that good I've pre-ordered.

Here on the Lamley Blog we try and take the car-lover's approach to diecast collecting. More than chases, more than the accumulation of one model, it is about having replicas of cool cars. Even better, it is about having replicas of legendary cars. Even if the replica is of a single car that was created, shown off, then burnt to a crisp on the Top Gear track, only to vanish and become car lore. Only one Furai was made, and a few years ago it was completely destroyed on the Top Gear test track. The Top Gear guys explain the whole deal pretty clearly. The Hot Wheels version debuted in gunmetal gray, just like the real thing, along with the Furai's racing livery. But since there was only one Furai, every Hot Wheels deco on subsequent versions after the debut is made up. None can beat the first. And Hot Wheels nailed the casting.

If you grew up with dirt between your toes and even a passing interest in cars, you know the Shelby Cobra. You know where it came from, who built it, and what it accomplished. How a fast-talking Texan conned and swindled his way toward the realization of a car that would change the course of racing history. An American dream written in aluminum, cast iron, and leaded gasoline. For those of us raised in places where a 911 is an exotic, where meteorites are more common than anything from...
