Any ideas what others are in the range? I like the look of the Quattro! Shame 1/24 stuff doesn't really fit with my collection...

The collection is still 'current' in Italy - ie available on magazines in shops so could be quite some time before (if) they come to UK. Very nice quality though, some of those which have already landed over here sold out very very quickly.

Yes thats the range that includes Mashs' Uno.Personally, I think the Welly stuff is better than Burago - better put together and detail is a bit better too.

^ Beetles - sold quite a lot but we still have some left. Theres also a 2CV and DS in the same sort of design (ie knackered) but 1/18 scale.Going back to Welly for a moment - just had a load arrive today which is all new stuff - 1/18 BMW 120i, TransAm, Alfa 8C plus 1/24 FX4 Taxi, Landrover and something else I can't remember at this time of night. Of more possible interest to shite lovers would be 1/43 scale Skoda Felicias by Abrex which are pretty cool.None of above on ebay til weekend though :roll:

No sorry, however there is a Nova / Corsa SR due out in the next week or three by Schuco (probably early Jan then as we don't expect to see much new stuff in the next few weeks) which should be pretty good.

Lobster_san, are there any plans for a 5 door 1:43 Peugeot 306 any time soon? Would love to add one to my collection.Also, do you have any spare glass tops? I'd love a few for my 1:43 Vitesses, and the rally PV 544 I've got (which I think is Altaya).

Not seen any 5dr 306s but I would imagine Norev or IXO/Altaya must produce one at some point. Will let you know. I'm guessing you mean the clear plastic display case that sits on top of the plinth and encloses the model? Have got the odd Altaya one kicking about but don't think I've any Vitesse ones. The Vitesse ones seem to break fairly easily as well so we used what spares we had ourselves.

There's been one! Minichamps. Not recently though. They come up on eBay from time to time. I've got a pre facelift 3 door in red, a pre facelift 5 door in light blue, a facelift 5 door in dark blue & a facelift 5 door in gold. Really need a facelift 3 door though! I got 2 of mine from Alpimodel (and the other 2 from eBay), but they don't appear to stock them anymore. Otherwise you'll be looking at resin models (which can be as expensive as white metal) from French manufacturers such as Provence Moulage who would also do the break & sedan versions.

In addition to above, Minichamps also do the 306 Cabriolet but you might be aware of that because they have been issuing more colour variations of that one in recent times.

Some eBaying, RR scouring and loft diving has resulted in some new models.

Loft spec 1:18 spec Peugeot 205 GTI (Solido)

Posted Image

Altaya 1:43 Dauphine and 12, cheap from Retro Rides.

Posted Image

Schuco DKW Schnellaster - been looking for this for AGES.

Posted Image

Matchbox 1:72 Mk 1 VW Golf nicked from grans.

Posted Image

On to my new stuff now, my newly arrived Ebbro Autozam AZ 1 and Norev Isuzu Asso Di Fiori.

Posted Image

The Asso Di Fiori was the Piazza concept car, and in detail it's closer to the other Norevs to my car. Everyone seems to want a bucketload for the Norev Piazzas - the place I got this from was by far the cheapest at £30 posted. :shock: http://www.minimodelcars.co.uk

Posted Image

It's my first Ebbro model and I'm really impressed with the detail. The seller on eBay seems like decent as well. He has a Honda Beat from the same series which I may well invest in :D Seller is called 'maruishi-trading' on eBay.

Weird thing is, his AZ 1 was the cheapest out of any I've seen on eBay, and yet his Piazzas are really dear - though he does carry the whole range of them - the Asso di Fiori, the XE, the Space Lounge and the Irmscher \ Irmscher Nero HBLs.

To finish, a couple of the Diapet Piazza I bought from the NEC Classic, also in 1:43 :

Yes mate, the clear plastic tops. Would love a quote on an Altaya top when you get a minute. I've also noticed that you've got the Ebbro Beat in stock......

No problemo. I'll have to have a look to see what / how many we still have which might not happen this side of Christmas though. Actually, if you want the Beat I can probably throw a couple of Altaya cases in with it..... :wink: On the Ebbro stuff - the Honda Beat is really nice, there was also a Suzuki Cappucino in Red, Green and Silver which is superb as well. We tend to carry some of the Ebbro stuff but its a bit hit and miss in terms of demand which is a shame. The MX5 / Miata, Cappucino and AE86 sold really quickly, other stuff tends to be slower. Also, Ebbro have increased their wholesale price by something daft like 40% :shock: effective from the beginning of December. So all next years releases will be a bit more :roll:

Hmms. I will have to make my mind up over whether or not I want a yellow or silver Beat. If you'd have had an AZ 1 I would have had that off you. If Ebbro are going to be daft like that then they can't expect suppliers like yourself to buy from them.

One of my favourite eBay sellers...never bought from but sure I will one day, always got such interesting stock. Really tempted by some of the DISM stuff! You're right, it all seems quite expensive though, probably why I've resisted so far.

I don't have too many Ebbro, mainly some of the older stuff like MkI Civic, MkI Civic RS (shame we didn't get real ones of those!), Toyota Sprinter Trueno Corolla thing, Toyota MR2 SW20, can't remember what else really. All bought for not much more than £20 ish each. I don't think I'd want to pay more than that for them. Seems to be the way things are going, what with Neo pricing me out of their range going from mid £30 to late £40, there's not much change from a ton for just a couple of models! :shock: I presume they're all just trying to cover their costs with the way things are right now, but it's made me think twice on buying any of their products so if everyone else feels the same way, the tough times will only get tougher....vicious circle really!

We are still stocking Ebbro - I take the view that even at a higher price its broadly comparable in both quality and price to Minichamps and tbh we will probably carry a bit more Ebbro next year dependant on whats available. A lot of manufacturers have increased prices this year though. NEO were probably the worst and we have only bought NEO if it was something really special and we knew we could sell it or if we already had an order. They do an absolutely stunning 1/18 scale Citroen CX GTi but as it has an RRP of something like £140 so that won't be happening.

Ah right....would you be able to get me a yellow Beat or would it be a special order job? I'm also after a Minichamps 1:43 scale Amazon estate Swedish police car.
