BMW M1 Minichamps VS Norev, Opinions??

Post by DiecastDan » Wed Sep 13, 2017 4:21 am

I do apologies if this topic has been discussed before, but I am really intrigued to hear your thoughts and experiences with theses 1:18 scale models. I would like to know which one has better quality, detail and finish. Thank you.

Personally I'd go for the Norev. The Minichamps is an older mould, In my opinion the Norev is slightly more refined. Cheaper too!

I forgot to add, a simple wheel change on the Norev makes it excel :okay:

I've seen both and I (still) own the Norev. The Minichamps didn't seem like worth the upgrade at all. More expensive too.

That looks fantastic. Was it a difficult wheel swap?

Nope. If I performed it, you know it wasn't too challenging LOL :D

Haha! That sounds like the level of confidence I have in my skills.

I am with models like Top Gear was with cars: 'Ambitious, but rubbish'!
