VANGUARDS 1/43 MORRIS MINI - 45th ANNIVERSARY



The Mini was first produced in 1959 and was was so successful production of the car lasted until 1999 and although the car was updated, the general look of the Mini changed very little during it's 40 years of production. In total over 5,300,000 were produced.

Celebrating the 45th anniversary of this venerable motor, Vanguards issues a maroon model with black roof inlay in its BMC/British Leyland Collection. Side and rear views appear convincing, if somewhat squat, but we are unconvinced about the front view. Shop here

The front grille, unaccountably, is that of an Austin Mini-Cooper. Nice model otherwise, but I'm biased - I own the real car, LSK 706, used for the making of this model.
