This is a new resin manufacturer that appears to sell their models through Modelcarworld.de (or maybe MCW themselves got into the manufacturing game). When you type in bos-models.com in you rbrowser you are redirected to MCW, go figure...
The details look to be in the same ballpark as Otto and the price of the first released model (the Opel Admiral) is 100 Euro.

I am super excited about the W123:

All of the cars look very nice, but that Mercedes-Benz estate... :drool5:   (And I'm not kidding.  I've always loved Mercedes-Benz wagons and wagons in general.)

That W123 looks outstanding....and such a perfect '70's color combo, too.

I kind of like that BMW, too....its kind of neat looking.

As it turns out, the quality/detail level should be closer to NEO rather than Otto.

I agree with you guys, regarding the green color. I think the W123 will be the highlight of 2013 for me.

That's good - OTTO have stepped it up lately though, my last few models from them have been mint.

Well, I read on another forum that these models are indeed made by Otto for Modelcarworld...

I saw this one a few days ago and I really want it, not sure why. It is a bit ugly. What is it about this one?

Oh I thought that they were die-cast and I was considering buying one of them Admirals if the price and the color is right. It looks like they have opening features too.  I like the design of this Opel, very American, very classy too. It almost looks like a Chevrolet Nova or even an Impala

I hope that these models will be more readily available than OTTO models (which if MCW are selling them they will be)  I can't be doing with pre-ordering from OTTO & it sucks now that lots of sellers buy them to charge more straight away. I can't be doing with paying £70 or so for a model that costs 44 EUR, that's a rip off! but as people can now order as many as they want are sold out before release.

F**k you Photobucket.

Hope they'd also make a 1/18 scale of Ford Taunus P7b....
