Diecast or Resine - this is often a question of faith, on which the ghosts divide and on which the collectors' are unsure about: While model cars made of die-cast zinc in 1:18 often have doors and hoods that can be opened, the polyurethane resin built miniatures are preferred in terms of the mold because of their lower demands, economically wise, but renouncing to functional parts. The politics of the brands is different: Spark sets also on Resine because of the faster implementability of model projects; Minichamps uses both materials and from Norev we dont know a single model that is not built out of diecast. For small series manufacturers, resine also outweighs as material: keyword efficiency. For example, at AutoCult. Today however, we are turning to zinc die-casting and presenting special novelties.
Exclusivly at modelissimo and ck-modelcars, this week's novelty is a model of BMW: The BMW M6 GT3 in the plain body version of Minichamps comes in a limited edition of 350 units. The scale 1:18 model car with the article number 153162600 is characterized by a high-quality workmanship and the correct reproduction of a variety of important details. Particularly successful are the grille mask, the additional grill in the front apron, the headlights and their inner workings as well as the design of the ventilation openings. Made-to-measure: The replica of the rear edge of the front fender and the tinted tail lights perfectly fitting to the body. The interior: great!
Great feat in scale 1:8: The 300 SL Gullwing
The 1:8 format has a long tradition thanks to well-known model kits from Pocher. So it is amazing that Premium X brings a diecast model of the 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL W 198 series as a finished model in this size. At a price that is appropriate for a closer look: measures barely under 57 centimeters, the now coming red model car with the article number 153162600; more than half a meter, then! And it is full of highlights: The engine of the real model with 158 kW / 215 hp can be seen at the model car with all the cables, pipes, containers, etc. a gem! You can not get enough! The body openings, the fit of the functioning doors and hoods - mega! The dashboard: Hey, it's hardly real! But why does the car not start then? Take your time, look at the pictures!
New Lamborghini from Autoart
As no less desirable, we classify the model cars of Autoart - Own spelling wise AUTOart, which are also made out of diecast. The fit of the body panels is outstanding, the crafted finish is unique! So for example highly up-to-date with the model cars of the Lamborghini Aventador S 2017, which arrived this week in the scale 1:18 in the colors perl yellow and pearl-blue: Doors and hoods are able to be opened, the front wheels are steerable and the interior equipment as well as the engine in an outstanding reproduced detail.
