However, help was at hand from one of the oldest UK model companies, Ripmax. Ripmax specialises mostly in radio-control planes, helicopters, ships, and cars, so adding Amerang’s diverse catalogue to the existing range was a logical move. Consequently Amerang is back up and running, and had its usual stand at the London Toy Fair 2014.
As you can see here, Amerang deals mostly with the specialised end of the diecast vehicle market, and figures from the worlds of science-fiction and fantasy - the more spectacular the better!
McLaren diecasts (above) in two scales from TSM Model. Movie poster (below) for Ron Howard’s Formula 1 movie, Rush.
1971 Lotus from TSM Model (below) complete with figures.
Moving movie subjects, or maybe from the sublime to the ridiculous? From Rush to Ghostbusters, Amerang distributes several versions of the Ecto-1A ambulance (below) from the 1:25 scale AMT kit, to 1:43 and 1:18 diecasts from Hot Wheels.
Just four kits from the extensive AMT Star Trek range. And yes, you get a tribble with the K7 Space Station.
