Fast & Fifty Magazine

0 Reviews   •  English   •   Hobbies & Crafts (Scale Modelling)
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the launch of the Superfast 1-75 series, Fast & Fifty focuses on the original Lesney era, from 1969 to 1982, covering every basic model released as well as taking a look at the accessories and ranges that were sold to complement and work with the models released. Sold in eye-catching packaging, the range became a huge success and is still hugely popular today.

Fast & Fifty is packed with information and evocative photography to truly bring back memories of a bygone era and act as a basis for the collector:
Every basic model released by Lesney photographed and detailed
Production variations highlighted and photographed
Arranged in easy and quick to locate sections by release number
Valuation guide for every release listed
Box styles described and photographed
Accessories featured such as Track Sets, Pop-Up Roadways, Matchbox Motorway, Storage Cases, Display Units and Catalogues
Special ranges detailed – Streakers, Rolamatics, Scorpions, Super Kings and Speed Kings.
Restoration guide and tips for bringing playworn models back to life
“What Ifs” – popular Regular Wheels releases that never got upgraded
A look at life for the Superfast range “Beyond Lesney” up to the current day in the hands of Mattel.
