Shame they're so small though.


Yes, I also like Hotwheels but I agree, they are just a wee bit small to be able to see any detail.

Vantman, just checked on eBay and there's an identical BX to yours, same condition too with the same parts missing, going for about £45 on eBay. Just want to let you know before you decide what to do, wouldn't want to rob you here!

Thanks for the info but I am happy to sell it to you for £15. You should have a PM.


RIP Derek 'The Mint'.

Could this be the most overlooked diecast yankshite?

They did a superb job replicating the "Starfire" panel above the glovebox:

MOAR yankshite.

 

001.jpg

 

Not sure why getting Mopar nomenclature straight appears to be such an impossible task, but there is no such thing as a 1961 DeSoto Adventurer.

In its final year, sir could get a DeSoto, period. Yes, a DeSoto. That's it. Nothing more. There weren't any models. There wasn't even an optional engine.

There wasn't a convertible and there was no wagon. There was a Desoto and you could have it as a 2-door or 4-door hardtop.

 

Anyway, this is a bit from the lower echelons of diecastage.

 

A face even its mother hated:

 

002.jpg

 

An attempt to continue Desoto's traditional triple taillight treatment that can't be beaten in its half arsedness:

 

003.jpg

 

Sadly my camera refuses to do the relatively nicely made interior justice:

 

004.jpg

 

The seat backs fold in the typical Mopar fashion of the day:

 

005.jpg

 

Nothing to write home about, in real life and on the model:

 

006.jpg

 

 

Not really a bad model, but it does need help.

Most annoying is that step that makes the roof sit about 2mm too high.

Filing this down should do a lot to the overall proportion.

I can't see a '61 De Soto without thinking of Bruce McCall.....

Junkman, you do realise that you have single-handedly turned my entire skin Lime Green here?  I'd eat your legs for that DeSoto!

Where did you score the Starfire from?

 

I'd rather like one to compliment the Studebaker Golden Hawk I have from the same series - same flocked packaging - same "gold" coin.

 

Best of all, same functional crank windows.

Outrageous fidelity for the cash, even if the grille is a little cheesy

Tis 2017 m8. Drive to a petrol station and you'll see what 40 quid are worth nowadays.
