Goldvarg Collection

Post by Jager » Fri Jan 19, 2018 8:45 pm

There is a new producer making 1950's and 60's US classics under the brand name 'Goldvarg Collection'. It seems theses are new resin models of subjects originally released in Argentina by Goldvarg in white metal. Not cheap at $99 each, but according to Replicarz they are limited to 150 pieces each :
The Ford Fairlane 500 1958 is the first model of the new GOLDVARG COLLECTION Series in resin in 1/43 scale. The replica features amazing detail and two-tone color scheme, as in the correct period.

The 1956 Mercury Montclair was manufactured already in the GOLDVARG COLLECTION Series in white metal in the premises in Buenos Aires, Argentina. By popular demand, this model is being issued now in the new resin series, with a completely new and much more detailed master prototype.

The 1961 Ford Country Squire is the second Station Wagon in the Goldvarg Collection history, the 1949 Plymouth Commercial Utility the very first one. This Plymouth was the last model in white metal "Made in Argentina".

The Fairlane looks quite nice. The archetypical example of the 50 and 60's North American excess in car design - interesting that, with a little knowledge of history, you can infer a lot of what the country was like back then just with this car.

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

Good to see the '58 Ford. I have never found one in 1:43 diecast or resin.

My father owned a '58, but he couldn't afford the Fairline, so he got the entry-level Custom which has entirely different side trim. Now, I don't know if I can afford the Fairlane in 1:43. :lol:

I bit the bullet and bought one of the '59 Fairlanes before they were gone. It is very nice.
