Re: Post Your Latest DIECAST Purchase

I know right! I did see your review on the sealed version and thought how good would it be to have a version with opening doors etc and then I stumbled on it in the Koenigsegg webshop! Gave them a quick call to confirm availability and then pulled the trigger! Yes I could have got two to three other...

Re: Latest News High Performance Diecast Koenigsegg Agera R

you're right the carbon weave does look too large. But when made to match the scale of the cars (1:18 in this case) they can look too small or not like carbon weave at all.. :roll: And what's with that high steering column angle!? :? yikes! Overall the detail and finish of this model do look only qu...

Re: First Look: Tecnomodel New McLaren 720S

looks ok but not being familiar with the brand, any clues to whether or not this would be a sealed resin body or will have opening parts with detailed compartments?

Re: Classic Carlectables New April Announcements

I guess the only ones I'd be interested in would be the VP & VS Commodores but disappointingly they are very poorly recreated with many detail and proportions inaccuracies. As I've mentioned previously and being a big Commodore fan this is very surprising and annoying as the abundance of these model...

Re: GMP Announces the 1970 Dodge Super Bee – Plum Crazy

one of my all time favorite American muscle cars! I had several GMP models in my former collection including a 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner which I sincerely regret selling off.. This upcoming Coronet will be my first new GMP model and im very excited for it! Can't wait!

Re: Auto World New 2017 Chevrolet Camaro Indy 500 Pace Car

doesn't look too bad. Engine bay and interior look a little simple and plastic. Also the dash looks like it has dropped down a bit so I'd imagine this is just a pre production example.. I really like the new model Camaro and would love to have one in my collection but would this be good enough?

of all my current model cars, I would have to say it was the best bang for the buck in terms of detail and features.
