Interesting cars there, some I have already as a Minichamps but it may be hard to resist getting some of them in new colours, for example Ford Escort Mk3 and Mercedes-Benz 190E, maybe even the W124. Some I don't have yet, for example Peugeot 406 Coupe, nice looking car.

I was excited when I saw this list because there are several of my models that I would like to upgrade (e.g., Cararama, Maxicar, etc.) Unfortunately, those in need of upgrading are almost all American, Japanese, and French which are not in that assortment.:(

I wonder if in time we'll see Minichamps re-releasing some of their racing cars under the Maxichamps label ?

Something for everyone there 8-) I'd love to have the '82 BMW 635 CSi in Red, the 1990 560 SEL in either color and both Countach. Now, if there was a cheaper source for this 'budget' line in the US? :roll:

Nothing among the Lamborghinis to 'turn me on' among that lot. Gold Miura was the second colour they did in Sept 2001. I've already got those Countach LP400 colours from 2004. Red was a special joint Kyosho product. In their defence on a couple of Maxichamps I have bought in the last year, they do now have micro etching of some details which are better than the original.

Annoyingly the one colour Fiat X1/9 they promised last year has vanished off the list.

quite a few to add at a decent price....will be there waiting. alfas, mercs and perhaps beemers in some new colors....something tells me that they will be sold out eventually and then price will go up just like with the initial minichamps...

Yes, that is a certainty.

I think the choice of subjects for the Maxichamps range is pretty good so far, with many models that were really rare and desired by collectors. The Alfa 75 has been on my wish list for years. As for the Giulia, it's showing its age but still the best model available.

The Alfa 75 America was a great model car by Minichamps. I've got a red one and I think it looks best in red. Hope they will re-make the Alfa 164 too in different colours in the future.

From that list, I guess I will be getting some of the Mercedes, BMW & Porsche.

Cheers,
Adam
