Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

"Hot Wheels" Trio - By Wayne Calder

Over the last several Christmas holidays Hallmark has released smaller versions of Hotwheel's early releases as Christmas Ornaments. These work well for 1/87 concept vehicles. The interesting thing is that one of these has become prototypical as HotWheels has built two of its early cars in 1:1 scale! Fully functional. The blue TwinMill (a 2000 ornament) now exists in real life (albeit red in color). The purple car is Silhoutte. The copper car is Revvin' Heaven. From Wayne Calder's extensive collection.
