This brand has been doing 1/43s for a bit. But, this seems to be their first 1/18 model. It is a 1977 Opel Kadett C2.

Take a good look at the comprehensive roll cage elements that can be seen through the rear window of the 'RS2000'. Compare that to the rally version, which looks to be period correct and rather different. There's quite a bit of very modern looking tubing in there, to a level I've not seen in photo's of Escorts from that time. I actually have an 'RS' factory roll cage photo (scanned from a book) and it's much simpler in layout.......

Well, I added one to my AUTOart 1992 Bathurst Winning Nissan GTR order from CK.

I was pleasantly surprised to find it was metal (I'd assumed it would be resin, as it's sealed).

It's a little toy like in feel, but looks reasonably good to me, especially for sub £50 (incredible I'm saying that, but such is the price of diecasts these days!)









I'll leave it to you to decide what you think.

I like it so much I'm going to get one of their Mazda Cosmo police cars!

I think it look pretty nice! I might think about getting one to go with my Yellow Kyosho Evo one.

Here's something different/nice: Triple 9's 1955 MGA Le Mans BRG streamliner car, as well as 1957 street versions in red (open) and silver grey (closed hard top). Metal, reasonably-priced, though only their doors open (2 on the street versions and just the driver's side on the Le Mans car. Cheaper than resin and the detail seems good; the wire wheels appear to be very good for a model at this price range (64,95 Euros).







Available in Europe (CK-Models, Modelissimo, etc.)

Cool! The Mitsubishi will be on my radar. Maybe the Peugeot 205 T16 too.
