After the over view of the Mini in yesterday's blog post again rolled a model car from Welly in the focus of our attention: With the 2011 Range Rover Evoque, the label shows a model of a prototype that has received in the meantime a facelift, but nevertheless shows the car model produced in 1:18 scale, which do not need to fear comparison with Minichamps Norev and the GTA series the Welly models. The small Evoque from Welly is a Evoque Coupé, ie a two-door and made of die-cast zinc; Hoods and doors can be opened and thus generous grant insights into model making skills and the art of the prototype.
