Finally an affordable alternative to the super pricey W124 by Autoart. And it is pre-facelift model some more... :yahoo: Both BoS and MCG owned by the same parent company isnt it? I wish they would make more of the cheaper sealed diecast line... the sealed diecast models are priced well and very presentable.. the much more expensive resin one are.. mediocre and have subpar packaging.

MCG is an under-appreciated brand. They make some really nice (sealed) models for roughly 33% cheaper than your typical GT-Spirit or Ottomobile alternatives. And their models seem to be in good supply too, I havent seen many stores sell out as is the case with some desired GT Spirit or Otto models.

However I have to say I am disappointed in the headlights. The rest of the model looks great, especially the detail on the wheels, the grille, the star, the taillights, all of it.

Now I am just waiting for someone to buy one and post some detailed interior shots :yahoo:

EDIT: Craig, the grille on your grey stock photo seems to differ to the one in mine. Is it perhaps another version sold in the same color?

MCG will also bring out a black version of the 1987 Chevrolet Caprice soon. Both the merc and the caprice are on my wish list, waiting for a sale :)

agree, i thought it was looking great until i got to the headlights - wow, lol :)

The blue one seems to have sold out in 24hrs on Carmodel net. I will see if CK has them in stock.

The headlights seem to be a major let down :( The rest of the model looks fine. The Caprice looks good. I hope MCG will include more old school American cars. Most iconic land yachts have already been made under BoS line...

Agree. Just bought a Cadillac Fleetwood 60 in black and I have to say it definitely holds up to a BoS model which costs 2x as much. Of course the odd scratch or tiny paint flaw here or there should be expected, but otherwise MCG models look impressive on any shelf.

Edit: btw here is Autoart's E320 headlight for comparison:

Norev has also made a W124 E-Class as the MCG, if anyone is on the lookout for alternatives in a similar price range. Although it is a roadster...

The Cadillac Fleetwood looks ace and I am sure it has a massive presence on your display shelf. I almost bought it when modelcarworld had the easter sale but somehow they removed the discounts on some of models that I had in my cart so at the end i didnt bother with the checkout. The Autoart E320 has the perfect headlights and I am looking forward to pair it with the MCG one so i have the pre and post facelifted pair. The Norev one looks decent but for some reasons I keep on missing out on the sales haha.

Wow, so now MCG released the Mercedes (W115) 220 D in my fav color combination (black with bright interior).

Posted Image

And this time I have to say their headlight detail is also very impressive:

$400 AUTOart for comparison:

However, keep in mind Sun Star makes a W115 with opening parts (but in a dark green color) for about 100 euros.

Finally, it is here. A re-release of the Chevrolet Caprice but this time in beautiful black. Since I missed out on getting the BoS Cadillac Brougham before its price skyrocketed, I'm thinking about getting this one which looks similar enough:

Thought I was done buying diecasts, but having owned one of these (albeit a Vauxhall badged one), I'm going to have to add this as well!

The headlights look strange, so I hope this is just a prototype shot...

A run of the mill version of E12... i am mildly excited. They say spring 2020 hmmm so... soon? With the current state of outbreak I wonder if this will be delayed or not. And getting one to my door step would be a real challenge itself considering all international freight are operating at very limited capacity. Would definitely getting this one if i survive the outbreak... health wise and financial wise :)

I like the color, got that 70s vibe to it. Although if youre looking for an E12 remember Norev made them too and I think theyre in the same price category

same here.. dont mind the period correct colour scheme but if they also come in olive green then it will definitely be my no one choice. And i think you are right both are priced the same dont they.

From MCG facebook page...

This 1969 Ferrari Dino 246 GT in scale 1:18 is announced by MCG and will be available in Spring 2020.

Posted Image

Surely the stock Dino never come with such chunky tyres?? Looks almost as comical as the Anson one and mind you Anson's Dino wasn't that bad to begin with.It was just spoilt by the unreal oversized tyres much like this one... Maybe the production version will be corrected?

And the wheel rim diameter is too small, meaning off road tyres to fill the wheelarches.
