Very cool models there and the fotos are awesome - especially the 3rd and 5th one. They pack in a lot of detail for the size! Are these expensive?
Lately, I've been contemplating going 43rd for racers cus I just can't afford to buy 1:18 scale anymore!

Why do models of F1 cars often have treaded tyres? I've noticed this on quite afew. Does it make them road legal?  :lol:

Thanks

I got them both for about $20 and free shipping. There are a couple on ebay for a resonable price. The detail is nice, the scale looks good, but the Hot Wheels 43s are much better, but twice the price-ish.

Very nice. These are some of the nicest Onyx models. Especially compared to their earlier releases, which are quite crude. This is from the period after Vitesse acquired Onyx. These same models were also marketed under the Quartzo name. In my opinion these models are underrated and are just as good as the Minichamps F1 models from the same era, which somewhat overrated.

Thanks for the info. I have been very unsure of which models to go with. Minichamps seemed to much for what I was looking for, Hot Wheels is nice, but then there are other makes. I was able to pick these up for a good price and took the gamble. It worked out, they look very good.

Treaded are usually wet tyres

But on display they usually have slicks so it seems alittle strange that they would be made with treads as models.

Because these cars change from race to race, a lot of manufacturers make a model from a specific race. And if that race was held in the rain, the model is made with rain tires.

Minichamps made some really nice models, but our day Mattel Elite in 1:43 are just as good. They are actually the best Ixo has to offer made for mattel because of the license issues.

I would definitely recommend them, as they go for about $30-$35 and worth every penny. Also they started releasing models that before were exclusive to the handbuilts. Like lauda's six wheel Ferrari test car and Villeneuve's 312 T5.
