Proposals that give force to the slot cars
Educa Borras and therefore Fabrica de Juguetes in Nuremberg have proven their experience in the industry and have returned to hold the reins slot segment in Spain. The product display at Nuremberg Fair booth shows that the Educa bet by SCX is an important foundation.
It was expected that the effort fall on the field who best knows Educa, the game, and that is why the empowerment of Compact range makes sense. But there has not been a surprise to see how the catalog of SCX Original and SCX Digital caught volume. We could say that Scalextric is back, if they ever were gone, but I do not doubt that the proposals for 2014 will satisfy many slot fans.
First of all excellent news is the return of the Super Vintage limited edition model, and specify to the most nostalgic that is made in Butyrate, the material with what was injected slot cars in the sixties and seventies. This is the Austin Healey 3000, reproduced with the original C-74 model molds, and presented in a king-size urn with a replica of the packaging of his time, 1965, and a booklet with the model history.
For that matter with the classics, 3 quite popular cars but without a true story of racing. A Citroën 2CV Rally Monte Carlo, the Renault 4L Paris Dakar and the recovered Fiat Abarth 1000. And also within the classical model and to be the first to appear, month of March, the Lancia Delta S4 Totip of Dario Cerrato in San Remo Rally.
Also in March, but already within modern cars, SCX proposes Seb Loeb Citroën DS3 Abu Dhabi, while the second rallies model planned, the dramatic Ken Block Ford Fiesta WRC will have to wait until mid-year. And the third component of the rallies group is another surprise, the Porsche 911 GT3 R of Nupel team of Sergio Vallejo.
And up to eight tarmac cars are planned for this year. GT, DTM, Cup and F1.
A new version of the Corvette C6R Vodafone Brands Hatch, the BMW M3 GTR Crown Plaza, Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 Erebus, which also appears on sale in March, a new Megane Cup McGregor, and two great protagonists of the 2013 DTM season, Rockenfeller with Audi A5 DTM and Dani Juncadella with Mercedes C Coupe DTM.
And finally, and as a surprise, the McLaren MP4/29 of Jenson Button and Checo Perez of the F1 2014 season that is waiting for the final colors that still have not been made public.
With respect to the Original Sets, SCX decided to give a life span of two years for each denomination and content, varying only the image of the packaging and with respect to the Digital System, two new set are provided with two cars each of them, with wireless controllers. Digital systems that SCX is keep evolving and that are expected big news for next 2015.
We said at the beginning that the 1:43 scale, the Compact range, is one that has received most attention from SCX. And is that Educa wanted to put it back into the emphasis on that the Compact also is "racing" as the major scale and therefore approximate both the image and its marketing to the Original and Digital range. New circuits set with the new Multi Track concept because each circuit can also build the specific layout and three more layouts with the same contend.
