US-based artist, Max Grundy has teamed up with Maisto to create a range of cool customs and hot rods featuring his unique style of art. Dubbed the ‘Outlaws’, the set of six 1:64 diecast cars were unveiled at the 2016 SEMA show and included a 1940 Ford-based bobber truck, 1936 Ford 3W coupe, a heavily channelled Model A coupe, a 1955 Buick hardtop, a 1955 Chevy gasser and a 1950 Mercury convertible.
“It’s styled after my old 1950 Merc ‘Lonely Boy’ and painted in one of my favourite colors,” says Max about the Merc. “One of the things that sets us apart on this toy car line is that we did the reflections printed onto the car in a graphic format, just like my artwork. This is the first time this has been attempted on a toy car and we are very happy with the result.”
Max Grundy has been commissioned to supply artwork and design for organisations such as the SEMA Show and Disneyland. Supplies of this very special set are limited.
