That's a truck that really needs to be done in plastic. All those sharp edges can't be done in resin or diecast in 1:43. This is true for many models but it stands out on the F-75

I'm very familiar with those cars, since I live in Brazil. I actually have driven some of them already.

ImageFord F-100 by IXO by Michael, on Flickr

This arrived from a e-bay seller in Colombia, in somewhat beat up condition. Like the series of 75 Brazilian vehicles being produced by IXO for Planeta de Agostini. a smaller series is being produced for Colombia. This is the 1973+ Brazilian model in a different color, but in the Colombian context, this would (probably) be a US assembled 1970 model.

From the Brazilian DeAgostini part work series by Altaya. 1958 Chevrolet 3100, 1975 Dodge Dart and 1980 Ford Belina II. Thank you to my friend Tulio for his help with these. Recently this series was expanded from 50 to 100 models.

The Belina would have been better detailed if the "B" pillar were painted black.

ImageDodge Dart Sedan by Altaya by Michael, on Flickr

1976-77 Dodge Dart, there is now a couple of Preium X versions of this sedan.

ImageChevrolet 3100 Pickup by Altaya by Michael, on Flickr

Base on the US 1947-55 Advance-Design, this was GM-Brazil's first domestic pickup which looked like this from 1958 to 1962.

Jeff, I believe that both of those Chevy trucks are now available in White Box form.

Seven Brazilian models from Planeta DeAgostini's partwork series "Incredible Cars of Brazil" and one model from PA's new series "Service Vehicles of Brazil." I'm not sure what the relationship is between Planeta DeAgostini and Altaya, but there is one. The castings are actually made by Sonic which is known by the brand name IXO. Some of the models in the Brazilian series are now being reissued for the rest of the world by Whitebox and Premium X.

ImageChrysler Esplanada (1968-70) by Altaya by Michael, on Flickr

1968-70 Chrysler Esplanada: Labeled as a 1966 Simica, but this is inaccurate as as this grille didn't arrive until 1968, by which time the Esplanada had become a Chrysler model. The Esplanada was the final iteration of the 1950's Ford Vedette.

ImageFord Itamaraty (1969-70) by Altaya by Michael, on Flickr

1969-70 Ford Itamaraty: Labeled as 1967 Willy but the grille is 1969-70 vintage which technically makes this car a Ford. The orange parking lights are a 1967-68 feature as the 1969-70 had white lenses.

1973-74 Chevrolet Opala 2500: Labled as a 1969 model, but is actually a 1973-74 model. My friend Tulio knows that I have a soft spot for the Opala.

1990 Ford Escort XR3 1.8. This is a AutoLatina era Ford with a VW engine. It kind of seems like the designers at IXO went out to lunch and didn't come back. The front could use a little more development.

WhiteBox does a version of this model, but it isn't a Brazilian 1.8.

Loved seeing your diorama but would really like to see a model of Jeff's pictured truck with the Caddie finned rear fenders.
That boxy truck Is so COOL. :lol:

I know those cars! :D

I've seen this collection here in Brazil many times, they are sold in news stands in the streets.

Since I only collect racing cars, I didn't buy any of those models, but a friend of mine has all of them!

They're nice models, with the exception of the pitiful Escort. Shame, I like to have oddities like that in my collection but it annoys me when they're badly made.

I just found this link listing the first 60 models in the Mexican partwork series.

http://coleccionescheveres.blogspot.com ... s-143.html

While a few of the models are of vehicles not sold in Mexico, many are of unique vehicles and I'm excited about this. I am especially excited to see a Ford Fairmont and a unique to Mexico Ford Elite II. I would never have thought I would see these in 1:43.

Also, some of the model photos differ from the final product.

The white one is a Corcel II, the first car (in the same color) that my dad bought when we came back to Brazil. Shitty 1.4 engine, but that was the norm for 99% of the cars sold here back then.

Did the Corcel II still have Renault 12 roots?

Yep, based on the Renault 12.

This is the Corcel I:

Cool link. I've bought some of the models from this collection. I've just seen the latest, the Chevrolet pick up. It is quite nice, but I'm really restraining my model acquisitions.

About the Fairmont Elite. My father bought a regular 4 door Fairmont in 1979. He was tempted by the Elite version, but unfortunately it wasn't available as a 4 door.

One other thing. You've listed these Mexican related models in this thread about South American vehicles. Mexico is not in South America, it's one of the three countries in North America, the others being Canada and the United States. You'd probably like to change the name of this thread to "Latin American Vehicles". :)
