Danbury Mint Die cast
Posted by dimaxion on Friday, March 21, 2014 10:59 AM

I don't if anyone has this information . The other day I received a flier to buy another Mint Model at the Danbury Mint . It is a '35 Ford Coupe . It is a missing link in a '30's Ford String . Stock versions that is . This one is also the last they will offer . The fact is if you understand the ripp-offs going on in China to anyone doing business there . Especially to US Corporations s you see the Irony .  It took the Chinese to show US Corps , you get what you pay for . What goes around , comes around . I wonder what the US Armed Services will do for Hummers . This business was sold to the Chinese too ?  Yup !   Thanx ..

sounds good. will be worth looking for them.

i've heard of diecast companies that have 'lost' molds and dies in China, only for cheap knock-offs to turn up later. apparently there's not good protection for foreign companies if you do business there. Maybe they should move production somewhere closer to home?

Yes , once the Chinese produce anything for you , you are a looser . All manufacturing rights , copyrights , design , Tooling , dies , production machines and all other propriety belongs to the people's Republic of China . Yet this is another piece of this Horror Story our Government promoted our Corporations to jump into business with . Reducing Labor Costs and Taxes does come with a price . Dies Disappearing is just  status quoit . Corporate Guppies in pursuit blindly at full charge get what they pay for . They cannot make the Beryllium (spelling ?) Steel as well as we can . This is what the dies are made of . Then there is the Farming out to make room for more business in the Factories . Cottage Industries take over the Production at a lesser quality & quantity .  BTW , this farming out process continues with every complaint from the Buyers of this stuff . I do not feel bad for the Corporations , just us the consumer . This process has continued since day one with this Trading partner . The name indicates co-operation . .. lol ..

   Thanx ..

This is why I worry about AMT and Revell.

I think if  either one decided to move production to somewhere else they would have a hard time getting their molds out of China.

I'll never understand why we we let our jobs go to China.THEY ARE NOT OUR FRIENDS.

I was recently on the Danbury Mint website.....www.danburymint.com. There is no listing of any diecast models at all....What happened?

I don't worry 'bout Round 2 or Revell, as I have enough plastic for my lifetime. As for Danbury Mint, I got the flyer for the '35 Ford Deluxe Coupe and if you read CAREFULLY, it says that it is the final "brand-new" 1:24 scale precision replica.That means no "new" tooling. Soooo, I wouldn't be surprised if at one time or another that the Danbury Mints were re-issued. Then again, they might be gone for good. Either way, it's not gonna change my life one bit.

And yet as of this date, no rip off 1.24 scale 1935 Ford Diecast Coupe models seem to have made an appearence. Its only DM's original issue that appear for sale on ebay.

Asking proces are usually upwards of $350.00
