MAISTO 1/24 LAMBORGHINI MURCIELAGO LP670-4 SV

This car model is a perfect gift for car lovers. It is a good size and nice color. The doors open up like the real Lamborghini and so does the trunk. These parts seem kinda fragile but if you're careful then they will be fine. The cool thing about this car is when you turn the steering wheel inside the car, the front wheels turn. Overall a very nice product.--kristina  Shop here

CORGI 1/50 TRIUMPH TR4 - SIGNAL RED


The TR4's gestation was slowed by too many ambitious plans that ultimately proved to be distractions, the most obvious being the 'Sabrina' twin-cam TRS, which was originally to have been the basic for Triumph's new sports car.

When finally launched in 1961, the TR4 used a modified version of the TR3s well proven 88 inch wheelbase chassis, but with a wider track, new rack and pinion steering, and the previously optional 147cc larger engine.Its smart new Michelotti designed body was much more civilized than its predecessor's and featured wind up windows, a very efficient fresh air ventilation system and Triumph's unique removable 'Surrey Top'.

CORGI 1/50 BEDFORD VAL COACH


The Connoisseur Collection has been created to capture the golden days of public transport. Each release in this exclusive range of 1/50 scale, high specification models comes with it's own numbered Limited Edition Certificate and a unique replica cap badge of the era.It is in the livery of Yellowway. This is truly lovely model, with Corgi having captured the look and shape of the vehicle perfectly. Particularly pleasing is the ribbed chromework, which is such a distinctive feature of the actual coaches and which has been reproduced effectively on the model. Also good to see are the flush windows, with the window frames moulded on and then picked out in silver

The headlights are plastic fittings, while the rear lights have a good appearance. The windscreen wipers are separately fitted: the side mirrors are provided for the buyer to fit. The front wheels can be turned. Chassis detail is provided. The paintwork and decoration are both to a high standard.

The one disappointment with this model is the lack of detail in the driver's cab area, and indeed the driver himself looks out of place: indeed the model might well have been improved without a driver. However, it is altogether a fine model, which comes with a replica driver's badge. Shop here
