Best of the partwork series

Post by Tom » Mon Jan 01, 2018 6:34 am

Unless you're into collecting high end models only it's inevitable that you have at least a few partwork models in your collection. What started out as models sold in news stands with a quality barely above toy level has ended up as a way to collect very interesting and varied themes, to add versions of cars to your collection you wouldn't normally expect to see models of, or just to get cheap models you can use as a base for customising. Overall, quality has gone up considerably over the years and now lots of PW models rival mainstream issues in detail and finish

This thread is intended to show pictures of your PW models you like best, the ones that surprised you when unpacking and that have pride of place in your collection.

For me it would be a tie between these two:

Ferrari 312PB #16

Image
Ferrari 250LM #21

I think they're very nicely made with a VERY good VFM.

Does Saab Collection count as a partwork?
If yes, I think the Saab 9000 Turbo-16 is maybe the best pw model in my collection.

That one and the Unic are great to display vintage cars. I'm tempted by the Unic.

Lots of great looking, and I’d bet that mostly inexpensive models, shown in this thread! :)

Never knew the Holden/Mazda Roadpacer had been issued as a partworks model. Looks pretty good.
