The Minichamps is a very nice low cost alternative to the Auto Art.
Well it used to be, not any more...This period is a really appropriate time to obtain the Autoart
one! I mean that for some reasons the Autoart (millenium) version has become quite cheap. If you check e-bay or online stores like modellissimo.de you will find that they are cheaper than 40 Euros. I bought mine for 32 Euros a month ago. Minichamps version is nowhere cheaper than 35 euros. Given that Autoart is by far a better model than the minichamps one, it is much preferable to buy the Autoart at almost the same price.
The minichamps Sierra is at the low-cost minichamps line, the ones that are not in stirene foam box, like Morris Minor, aston Martin DB7, so the details aren't up to the high line minichamps standards. On the other hand Atuoart is an old and good millenium version and it is great in details, interior (wonderful realistic seats), engine detail, front lights, wheels so on. Moreover Autoart is available, apart form white and black in an appealing light blue
