News from a DiecastSociety.com member earlier today reported the Minichamps McLaren MP4-12C had been released in Asia (thanks David). Customers had already obtained models and photos were already appearing on Flickr and international websites. At first I thought it was a hoax, but atlas I was wrong. It is funny how no news is reported from the horses mouth that being Minichamps. Are these models stolen from a manufacturing facility or hand sample? Maybe, but I’m glad it’s here!
The model itself looks great! I know photos can sometimes be deceiving but early images are showing well. Beautiful paint, nice exterior lines, and a well appointed interior. It also features a functional rear spoiler. If the model is priced right this could be a successful venture for Minichamps!
