Next one is another Porsche Le Mans winner - the 911 GT1 1998.

This 15 years old piece of old school diecast by Maisto really impresses me Posted Image Posted Image  and surprisingly it still can be found in as new condition for about 30-50 Euros. I just couldn't resist and spontaneously pulled the trigger...
Of course the inner details like engine bay are quite cheap but the overall shape and stance is almost perfect (maybe I will have to lower it a little bit), the paint is pretty good and there are no decals all - everything tampon printed. WOW - well done Maisto!!! Posted Image
I have models that are priced more than 10 times higher but in terms of value for the money this one is hard to beat. Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Damn it why did I click on this

Now I want one!

Gorgeous car and fantastic pics
Thank you! :danke:
That’s the danger with DX, Cornbeef! ;-)
Don’t wait too long, if you really want one - prices have started to rise (only the yellow version is still in production)...

I know - this place just keeps feeding the addiction.......


But I love it!


Thanks for the heads up I’ll have to try and track one down as I thought they were already no longer on production

Back when some of the best, most detailed road racing diecast models were being produced by Maisto.  These, along with their BMW LMR's, Audi LM's, and a variety of DTM's represent a high water mark in "budget" diecast.

Nicely photographed!  Lifting off the rear engine cover reveals even more detail, as well as opening the doors.

Thank you friends!! Posted Image

We continue with another Porsche Le Mans winner - the 919 Hybrid 2015 by Spark.
As far as I'm aware the only 1/18 diecast of the 919 in the market. Unfortunately sealed but at least Spark got the look and stance of the model right:

I totally agree, Simon! The E-Type is one of the most beautiful cars ever built - truly a masterpiece of the art of design!! Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
Well-deserved that it is exhibited in the MOMA and amazing that it was designed by an aircraft engineer, the famous Malcolm Sayers.

By the way: MOMA - I'd really appreciate to see a diecast model of the Cisitalia 202!! PLEASE CMC, PLEASE!!!! Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

The next model is a very special one for me:

Ages ago when I was a little boy I used to play with Match Box cars (like most probably many of you). Amongst those Match Box cars there was a special one:
It was metallic red, had a very streamlined, elegant shape and it was faster than the others - a Porsche 910. And I really loved it!
Unfortunately the model has been lost through the decades but you can easily find many pictures of it on eBay.

As said this was far back in time and I had completely forgotten about this Porsche until I accidentially became aware that one of Exoto's older releases was a 910. And yes, they had produced a version in (almost) plain metallic red...

Maybe I wouldn't have noticed this special 910 either if there hadn't been this little boy and his Match Box car decades ago... Posted Image

Thanks Darren!!!
Even in case that the interior details are not overwhelming - it is always good to have a model with full openings...
