These are newly made motors and are still available 

They are the most detailed toy outboards ever made and reasonably priced.  These are display models only and not meant for water.  The display stand is a really cool feature with batteries in the bottom of the stand so that when you press the small button the motor starts to run!

8. Alterscale Telmex racing motor.  This motor uses the graphics from the famous Telmex racing Formula 1 tunnel boat.  Interesting story behind this motor is that Telmex uses Mercury outboards but Mercury wouldn't allow Alterscale to paint one of their motors in a color or decal scheme other than what was used as they were sold.  At the time, OMC was in the midst of and pre-occupied with bankruptcy.  So it was decided to use the Evinrude V8 model omitting all OMC trademarks.  Note that only Telmex sponsor logos appear on the model.  No OMC marks are used.

1957 Mercury Mark 75H RACING VERSION: This version was never made by Alterscale but is a great creation of Richard Billhartz who removed the cowls and wrap around chrome to make a true racing version of this motor.mk7.5 006.jpg (118334 bytes)
1957 Mercury Mark 75 in Charcoal color.   The 1957 Mercury Mark 75, like the Mark 55 and others, came in a variety of colors.  One of which was the charcoal version.  Alterscale did a wonderful job with this motor capturing all the details of this awesome ground breaking motor. Only 275 of this color were produced by Alterscale.  Thanks to Joe Cain for the picture.

1958 Mercury Mark 75 in Burgundy. Some people don't know that Mercury also made the Mark 75 in 1958 too.  This is the burgundy version.  Only 500 were made.Alterscale Mark 75 burgundy 1958.jpg (28528 bytes)
1957 Mercury Mark 75 in Sunset Orange! This is extremely rare!  In fact, this is the rarest Alterscale ever made.  There were only 65 ever made!  They were only supposed to go to the top people at Mercury but a few made there way into collector's  hands.  I have one and love it!Alterscale Mark75 RED.jpg (35219 bytes)  Alterscale Mark75 RED front.jpg (44058 bytes)

13.  Alterscale stand.
Great new stand that comes with all of the Alterscale outboard motors. Small batteries are hidden in the base of the stand.  By pushing a small black button on the top of the base makes the motor run!  The Alterscale props can really spin!  Great idea and it works perfectly!  A wonderful engineering job to get the tiny medal clips on the stand to automatically line up with the clips on the motor.

14. Alterscale 1956 Mark 55H in blue and greenThese two motors came out around 2007 and are wonderful!  They have the Quicksilver lower unit, electric motor that spins the prop with the batteries in the stand, and rope pull handles that pull out and retract.  The 65th Anniversary emblem clips onto the front.  Only 275 of the green were made and only 150 of the blue!Alterscale 1956 Mark 55H.jpg (118836 bytes)
15. Alterscale 1956 Mercury Mark 55H with Quincy racing pipesThis is a great motor!  It shows how the real racing motors would have looked in the 1950s.  A company named Quincy came out with a lot of racing accessories for outboard motors.  One was to add racing stacks to the exhaust to cut down on back pressure. If you heard one in person you wouldn't believe how loud they were, which didn't make them popular with neighborhoods on the water!  This came out in 2008 and only 200 were made.  Comes only in Sunset Orange with Sand Tan lower unit.Alterscale Mark 55H QuincyPipes.jpg (357598 bytes)
16. Denny Cole collection of Alterscale motors and displayThis is Denny Cole's wonderful display of his Alterscale toy outboard motor collection.  This is an older picture and doesn't have the most recent motors on it.  Great job!Alterscale20Set (Large).jpg (116377 bytes)
17.  1956 Mercury Mark 30H:  Another great motor from Alterscale!  This is the awesome Mercury Mark 30H racing motor.  The real motors were used on Class 'C' hydroplanes and were real screamers!  I have one in my collection and they are beautiful and FAST!  The Alterscale version is a perfect replica of the real motor and it runs too!  1956Mark30H (Large).jpg (41837 bytes)
