Who doesn't know it from the news, the term supplementary budget! The French modelcar-manufacturer Solido has now presented an addendum, which deals with the novelites still to come in 2020 in the area of modelcars to the size 1:18. The editors of this blog don't want to withhold this knowledge from you and give you the most important names of the models that we can expect. But on this occasion we would like to make a recommendation: Especially for the friends of the French way of life, it is worth taking a look at the webshop, which is currently with the Citroën 2CV6 "Ricard" from 1985 under the item number S1805011 as well as the Dacia Duster II 2018 in arctic white (S1804602) and taklamakan orange (S1804601), both new miniatures based on role models of youngtimers as well as current cars have to offer: Inexpensive and built from diecast .
But Solido has just as much to offer when it comes to Porsche: The Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 2.8 with starting number 9 finished third at the Targa Florio 1973. Leo Kinnunen and Claude Haldi were behind the wheel of the nine-eleven used by Martini Racing. Solido dedicates this rare prototype to 1:18 scale modelcars, which have doors and steerable front wheels that can be opened and which faithfully reproduce the coloring and decoration of the application at that time; also appeared in the collection of the Porsche Museum under MAP02181018. But now to the advised references to the new Solido products promised for the second half of the year: Porsche is available under item numbers S1803401 and S1803402 with a yellow and red 911 3.8 RS of the generation 964; Under S1802803 a 356 pre-A with the starting number 162 appears.
The Mercedes-Benz 190 E Evo II from the DTM with the starting number 9 also appears in the format 1:18 (S1801003), like two beautiful Autobianchi A 112 Mk. V: One of them in blue racing trim (S1803801) and one in a red civilian version (S1803802). The historic Mini Cooper Sport in purple and checkered flag design on the roof and a battery of four additional headlights on the bumper is also announced in their league (S1800606). A Shelby Mustang GT500 from the 1960s is being prepared with item number S1802903; under S1804906 an AC Cobra 427 with hardtop in white. The Alpine A110 Cup 2019 (S1801605) continues sportily. Under S1804101 and S1804102 a McLaren F1 1993 appears in racing decoration. The two upcoming modelcars of the R34 GTR should certainly count among the highlights.
One of them is in civilian blue (S1804301); the second model, however, is delivered in red and black paint with gold-colored rims (S1804302): Our insider tip! Starting number 6, a Ford GT40 painted in the colors of sponsor Gulf enriches also the Solido product range (S1803003); the models from the feature film "Le Mans - Against Every Chance" are still very popular. For Alfisti, the car models of the Alfa Romeo GTV6 in silver grey are definitely a must have (S1802304); for friends of Volkswagen certainly the first generation VW Golf L (S1800209).
