pictures below are shots from the development of the 1959 Impalas.
This is a 1:12 scale model that is carved to get scale correct and
to define what the model will look like before the manufacture
starts production on the 1:24 scale version. As you will see in the
photos below there is a lot of time and effort put into the making
of a new image, especially when the new images are as detailed and
intricate as the West Coast Precision Diecast stuff is. These
photos were shared with us when the owner of WCPD, first started the ‘59
Impala project, and we had never seen the development of die-cast cars in such
detail. Being of such interest I decided to put them on the web to
share with those that had interest in die-cast cars and how they
are made, of course these photos do not show the whole process
but they will give you
an idea of how things are done and how intricate the models of
WCPD, are. Please enjoy.
