Icon Models OnLine Model Car Shop predominantley caters for the collector who is looking for something iconic in Australian diecast model cars and Australian diecast model trucks. We started the process of manufacturing diecast model cars in 2004.
We manufacture the 1/8 scale 1971 Ford Falcon XY GTHO and the 1/8 scale 1970 XW Ford Falcon. These Australian diecast model cars are the big daddys of the muscle car era and a must have for those astute collectors who collect model cars of Australia. All Icon Models diecast model cars are produced in limited quantities. We have even manufactured the 1/8 XY GTHO as a model car kit which you can enjoy building and assembling.
Icon Models works together with First Gear to manufacture Australian diecast model trucks. We have produced the Grace Bros delivery van, the Cleanaway Front Lift truck, the Cleanaway Rear Load truck, the Cleanaway Roll Off truck and the Boral cement agitator. We utilise the First Gear tooling to create these diecast trucks of some of our most iconic Australian companies. So if you are searching for Australian model trucks this is certainly the place to shop.
Marcos Ambrose remains the only driver to have a victory in every V8 Supercar season in which he has participated. In 2006 he made the decision to move to the United States and try his hand in NASCAR. In 2007 Icon Models thought it necessary to follow this great Australian driver through his NASCAR career. Icon Models commissioned the entire production run of the diecast model of the Ambrose craftsman truck. We purchased 90% of the production run of his 2008 Tailgate Ford Fusion to ensure that his diecast models were available to the Australian diecast model collector. The following years are history and we continue to support and import all Marcos Ambrose diecast model cars. At the half-way point of the 2012 season, Ambrose had earned four Top-10 finishes, two poles, and set a new track record at Michigan International Speedway, claiming the distinction of becoming the fastest man in NASCAR in 25 years.
