Sword Precision Scale Models Opens Doors

Berea, Ohio USA: 4/15/06 – There is a new company on the block offering highly detailed precision scale models to the construction and truck collector market!

Sword Precision Scale Models has years of experience to draw on when deciding which models to manufacture.  The company founder, Chuck Sword has been in the diecast scale model business for over seven years as the owner of DHS Diecast Collectables, Inc.  DHS is the recognized industry leader in the distribution of scale models of construction equipment and trucks to collectors worldwide.  The company is perhaps best known for its popular worldwide website forum for construction & truck collectors.

“DHS is enjoying a period of double digit sales growth”, says Sword, “and our collectors are demanding new and unique models.  They are asking for USA prototype trucks, trailers and equipment.  Through Sword Model’s relationship with manufacturers all over the world, we will offer a line of diecast construction and truck scale models with detail never seen before in this industry.”

Sword went on to say that there are many good scale models in the market today from companies like NZG and Conrad as well as First Gear and TWH.  But the model releases are based on what equipment manufacturers request and do not satisfy many collectors who are looking for American trucks and construction equipment in 1/50 and 1/87 scale.  Sword Models will bring models to market that collectors are asking for and models that are not offered by existing model makers.  They will also bring a whole new level of quality and detail to the 1/50 and 1/87 scale diecast metal collectible marketplace. 

“How would you like to see a 1/50 scale model of a famous orange Schneider National tractor trailer rig just like the ones you see on the road?  Or what about a 1/50 scale model of a huge Oshkosh Snowplow Truck?” asked Sword.  “We will offer models like this to fill a void not covered by current model makers and will bring products to market for collectors looking for very high quality scale models”.

Other models being released by Sword Models in 2006 include:  a P&H 4100XPB Mining Shovel in 1/87 scale; a Peterbilt 379 Tractor with a Nelson Heavy Haul 3x3x3 Trailer; a Peterbilt 379 Tractor with a Nelson Equipment Ramp Trailer; a set of Oshkosh Dump Trucks with Snowplows as well as the series of Schneider National trucks featuring Freightliner tractors pulling a box trailer, a tanker trailer and a flatbed trailer.
