First up is a purple Skyline that I bought to replace my AUTOart 1:18, but then replaced this with a NISMO 400R.
Still have the AUTOart after all.

This is the less common version with gunmetal wheels vs. the standard silver ones.

Next is another HPI, a duplicate of the one shown in my "arrivals" thread. Unlike my model, all 4 wheels are aligned properly here, but this one has the very common issue of the front/rear window film lifting near the roof.

As discussed, HPI was the only high-end company ever to make a stock NA1 in this color. Even the more budget-oriented Ebbro is a unicorn.

Still available is the ubiquitous Khruschev-era limo, the last vehicle in its class available for private purchase in the USSR.
Highly detailed with mudguards, photo-etched wipers and well-executed interior.

Like new in original packaging.

Anyone into police vehicles may be interested in the Lada 1200 by IXO, featuring 2-piece wheels & anodized taillights. Includes original box.

I've had this one for quite a while and along the way it had suffered the ignoble fate of having the mirror fall off, which was repaired before I had the wisdom to use gel superglue. Consequently there is a small mark below the driver's side A-pillar where the runny stuff streaked a little. Virtually invisible when on display but needed to be mentioned.

Lada 1200 Volkspolizei (CLC131): $32

For those of you into more vintage stuff, this one was actually built in the USSR. The quintessential mid-level executive sedan, popular with gangsters living behind the Iron Curtain. Not the highest level of detail, but could be a prime candidate for customization/beautification ;)

All doors open, as does the hood & trunk. Features full-size spare tire in the back.

GAZ-3102 Volga (possibly Novoexport continuation model), black w/ black interior: $20
