Guys,

Anyone know anything about this company.

https://www.vartmodel.com/shop/

Their subjects are very similar to/duplicate Laudo’s, plus their other subjects are right in Laudo’s ball park - older/modern-ish Italian cars. Have you heard of them before? Any insights?

Great link, and an interesting development - it seems they are being manufactured in Italy.
The truck at least would seem to be available assembled or in kit form.
Someone else recently added models in kit form.....

Thanks Slart. I found the link on Laudo’s Facebook page. There was a prototype of the Croma, and it went from there.

I wonder what the costs of manufacturing are in Italy compared to China?

I’m certainly up for some of their subjects, even though many mirror Laudo’s. Would love to know what the link is!

Interesting find Gino.
I'd be up for a number of those. Now if they were proposing a facelift 156 i'd be even happier

It's a new brand, as you told, which is going to produce several italian cars from the past years.

First generation of the Fiat Croma is their first product, followed by the 2nd series as well. The brand has been created by a collector (we're fellows on several Facebook groups), with the aim to produce top quality resin models never produced until now...

Unavoidably they are in straight challenge with Laudoracing and also their price tag are aligned.

Their model of the Croma has Fiat approval and should be available soon (after some delay due to loyalty release at first and than the well known COVID19 issues).
