Hongqi H7. Unique in that this model has never been mentioned before in all of DX history (by someone other than me, that is).
Brandwise, that's not entirely true.

@D N'D-Land (David) posted a review of the H9 model a couple of years ago: 1/18 红旗 H9/Hongqi H9 (Dealer Edition Promotional).....By...

When in doubt if anything has been posted before on DX, rather than using the forum search (which is not very reliable), you can use Google with the "site:website.com" syntax followed by the terms to search, like this:

Outside of budget models, has anything not been posted on the xchange at any one time?? ;)

At least for me anything diecast I've ever looked for was purchased and showcased by someone here in the past 20 years.

I was talking about the H7 model (note I said "this model"). I've known of D N'D-Land's H9 review for some months. It's a completely different car.

In this case, the way that I meant it and thought that I stated it, I think that I'm accurate in saying the H7 has actually never been posted on DX before.

If you're wondering why this is unique, it's because I replaced the rather unconvincing one piece 'plastic' engine cover which is on the original AUTOart versions.
Mine has a genuine Fiat 600D cover, held up by struts as were the cars back in period, I also re positioned the exhaust under the car as was the case back then.
Obviously the decals turn a 'street' car into a genuine race replica - I don't understand the idea of pure race models without the correct war paint.

I have a thing for oddball 90's supercars, as in the non-Ferrari/Lambo/etc kind (although I do love the more mainstream supercars). I also like models of trucks, both normal and commercial. Here are a few examples of some of the oddball stuff that I honestly never thought would get made in 1/18:

Oh noes. I actually started looking for them the second I read this 😁 It's gorgeous. I learn a lot about cars from the models I stumble upon here so I'm not at all surprised, especially in this case. This Dauer (and its sister Koenig C62) is probably the only actual street-legal prototype race car to date.

Not unique, but definitely oddities and I don't recall seeing any others posted in the forum.





I'm sure someone else has the Nissan as it was for sale at bargain prices at CK and Modellsimo for a while, but I know it's a divisive car.



This Skyline may be unusual because it comes with no tobacco logos, so these are all added aftermarket ones.
