A good looking model that fills a void in 1/43.


Didn´t even know there was a 1/43 market!!
Never go by the artwork for this brand. Check out the cast figure instead. Always beautifully cast and great detail.

Hi Frank,

I thought I saw somewhere that there are some resin and injection 1/43 kits out there. I think most 1/43 are die cast: Schuco, Corgi, Solido, et al. Schuco detail and scaling appears pretty impressive. I surmise that collectors of this range want good looking figures now.

True. I don't understand how a company thinks it is good to market their products with such a sloppy boxart image. The cast looks quite good, so it is obvious this figure has much more potential then could be seen on the boxart.
