Although HUMMER vehicles have been out of the picture for a few years as far as new ones being available, they still have an appealing rugged style. We can only guess whether the HX concept would have led to a production vehicle.


Here's a new metallic orange color on the HX concept in our 1:24 scale AllStars line. It's SKU 31309 and should be available soon.

In addition to realistic models, Maisto makes fun little pull-back toys like Slickers, too.

They're only about 2-1/2" long. Each has a pull-back motor so no batteries are needed. Set one on a hard surface, roll it backward a few inches then let it go. It might go straight, it might turn or even pop a wheelie. Adjust the "spare tire" on the back for different actions. There are twelve different body styles. The SKU is 15023.

Behind the scenes -- Harley-Davidson® Ultra Limited PDF Print E-mail

Here's how our new Electra Glide® Ultra Limited went from the real thing to a 1:12 die-cast model.


Hundreds of photos of the actual bike are taken from above, below and on all sides. Here are a few of them. Yours truly can be seen on a ladder reflected in the gas cap.


Measurements and photos are followed by master model makers to make a tooling model that is 1.5 times larger than the finished model will be. This shows all of the shapes and how the parts fit together. Clear, plated, vinyl and other materials are all shown as solid shapes hand made of resin. When it is finished, we send it to Harley-Davidson for review. It then goes back to the tool department to have the steel molds made for all of the parts.


Here's the pre-production sample. It is submitted to Harley-Davidson to be sure that everything is correct.


This close-up view shows the detail in the dashboard. You can read the tiny lettering.
