My astramax is a reddish colour, ill post pictures when it comes.The omega is actually gama! And i have bids on 2 other gama models right now, a Kadett E Estate (in Liebherr Livery, hopefully lowers the amount people could want it)and an Astra MKIII estate.And i have my eye on a MKIII Senator as well..............

I thought Gama had only done the Opel equivalent of the GSI 3000? I have one in red but also a black Minichamps one which isn't easy to come by. The Minichamps one appears to be like an Opel Lotus Carlton. I want the model of an actual Lotus Carlton though which Spark have recently released 8)I've got a Kadett E estate in a company livery, probably in the same Liebherr colours!

Ah, you might be right, im only saying what the item description told me!These new spark and Neo models look really good, im half tempted to buy one just to fill some holes.I was going to wait for the Kadett E by minichamps but that seems to have fallen off the radar, like the IXO MKII granada.Shame really.

Always wanted a mk4 Cortina model, but apart from the old matchbox job and a not very good but £££££ model by lansdowne, i've never seen one.

Until i spied this on ebay, now winging its way to me! Looks a bit weird with clear front indicators and side repeaters (which they didnt have) but better than nowt!

Is that the first bubble one? I have one made by a company called Doorkey which is a reasonable model.

I think a model K10 would be more interesting though & I've never seen one of those!

EDIT:

mine is just like the red one I believe, although I don't have the model nearby. This picture has reminded me that I've got the Serena as well! :wink:

I dont think the tornarse had side repeaters/clear indicators either, although I could be wrong!

cost eleven quid plus postage so not bad.

I see Lansdowne are now doing a Ghia Estate mk4, looks good.. no way I'd pay 60 notes for it though

Yup.. and to me they dont look as good as minichamps or vanguards stuff. This is the mk4 they do.. looks good, but in a ten quid sort of a way, not 60!

Makes you wonder who actually buys them!!

I have the Popular in Daytona yellow & metallic green, the 1600 Harrier in silver, the 1600 Sport in orange, the Mexico in yellow & blue, the RS1800 in white & the RS2000 in red & yellow I think. Don't think I've missed any...

Impatient people who put having an example, any example, of a particular car above waiting for a more accurate detailed miniature at a sensible price! (read people with too much money)
