I tripped across this gorgeous Nissan. I'm finding it harder and harder to resist these 1:43!! :crying

Does anyone have any feedback about Ebbro models? :feedback

Thanks for your feedback :cheers Do you know if the doors/hoods on 1:43 usually open or are they sealed models?

Felix, all the 1/43 models I have are sealed...with exception of my Minichamps Chaparral 2D, where the rear bonnet comes off to show the engine/suspension detail. In general, though, these babies are sealed curbside jobs.

Well, though there's some really neat cars in 1:43 that I doubt I'll ever see in 1:18, I'm not tempted. Curbsides just don't cut it for me.

SM, if you start collecting 1/43 model so you can't complain about those AUTOart sealed models :lol :lol
Maybe the 1:18 AUTOart models were getting me prepared for a world of 1:43s??? :confused :giggle :giggle :giggle Wait a minute....I would have to spend the same amount of money (or more) for "less car" (i.e. less mass)??

I've got two models from Ebbro (Porsche 911 GT3-R from the JGTC and the Den Bla Avis-Dome - and they are absolutely perfect! I think that the Ebbro-moldes are the best of all in 1/43!

The Dome-Judds from Ebbro also can be opened.

DBA-Dome

And there were some models from older Formula 1 cars which Minichamps has released last year which could be opened.
