Has anyone heard of “Davis & Giovanni"?

Post by victorchan97621 » Thu May 07, 2020 11:33 am

It seems like they are specializing in niche market, building resin models in very small production number.
But I can't find much information or any official website.
Does anyone know any history of this brand?
Thanks!

I've heard of them, but I cannot find an official website. Don't really care too much, the samples are really out there and I don't want to $900-$1000 CND for a sealed model.

PS If you find an official website please let me know. TIA

They're unofficially known as the finest resin models in 1/18 scale, that's all I know

I've discussed with some of my friends who's been operating Die-cast models for many years,
He said this is an unauthorized brand, using 3D printed parts to modify the die-cast models, giving it an unique look.
You're very right, spending money on 1/18 sealed resin models doesn't worth the money at all.

I personally think D&G is OEM by some factory in mainland China, rather than actually modifying it.

There may be some truth here, unfortnately I cannot validate either way :popcorn:
