TRAX Model Car Reviews: Spring 2022

By Shannons - 22 November 2022

Holden VK Commodore BT1 Police Pack

The VK Commodore was the first model that enabled Holden design chief Leo Pruneau to differentiate the car more from its Opel origins. A key feature of this was the third window that was similar to the range topping Opel Senator. Trax has captured this Holden classic wonderfully well in 1/43rd scale. This version is the police spec BT1 pack, which offered FE2 sports suspension, additional cooling, high output alternator and graduated speedometer amongst other features. Apprehend yours today!

1981 CM Chrysler Valiant GLX

The CM model was the last Australian produced Chrysler model, following the sale of the business to Mitsubishi Australia. In fact, during the transition Mitsubishi oversaw the production of the last of these Chryslers, no doubt with a traditional Japanese emphasis on quality. Trax has reproduced the GLX model here in 1/43rd scale. The GLX was a sports variant, with tauter suspension and “hot-wire” style wheels and was the sole Valiant sporty model, given the Pacer had been discontinued with the VH series. Stocks are limited so grab yours today.

1977 Holden HX Caprice

The HX series of Holdens were saddled with the challenge of increased emissions requirements as part of Australian Design Rules. While sapping power, the 5 litre V8 still managed to provide an enjoyable driving experience in the well appointed, top of the range Caprice model. Offering a choice of leather or crushed velour seating, power windows and more, Trax has done an outstanding job in capturing all the detail in 1/43rd scale of this high roller Holden. Procure yours today.

1960 Dodge Phoenix

If you drove a 1960 Dodge Phoenix back in the day, you really were someone to look up to. Featuring the latest in US styling and the power of a 318 cubic inch V8, the big Dodge cut an impressive path through city streets or country roads. Trax has really excelled in the exacting reproduction of this American classic in 1/43rd scale. Order this classic Mopar while stocks last.

1974 Holden HQ Premier 25th Anniversary Model

As part of the 25th Anniversary celebrations of Australia’s largest car manufacturer, Holden released this special commemorative model based on its HQ Premier. The HQ series was one of Holden’s most popular series (along with the EH and VE). Trax has done a beautiful job on recreating this classic in Anniversary Silver. Certainly a landmark model for any Holden or Aussie car model collector. Like the original stocks will be very limited, so order today.
