Vauxhall/Opel Thread

Post by The CSL » Sat Oct 09, 2010 6:45 pm

I didn't see one of these themed pages so thought I would start one as this is my main area of interest (other than BMW).

Minichamps Opel Calibra 2.0

In my collection I have both red and silver in dealer boxes. Gama made a nice job of the Calibra with opening features.

Only racers here, but here are the two I've picked up this year. DTM Astra 2002 by Schuco and Vectra 2004 by MC. Both decent replications in my book.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Some nice pictures in here already.

I have the Schuco Astras, too. Great little models for the price. It's a shame they don't do a 3-door as I'd have all six bodystyles then in my collection.

Cool thread, I've got couple of Opels in my collection, too bad I missed the Calibra, it looks very nice :)
Here's few I have:

As Minichamps is doing Kadett E, I hope they, or someone else, like NEO would do this version as well. My dad had 1988 Kadett E exactly like this one ;)

Can't contribute, no Opels here I'm afraid.
Would love to ad a Kadette wagon though. When I was a kid my Mom really wanted one.

There are many great models in this thread, the Vauxhalls are fabulous! Here are the very few 1:43 Opels and lone Vauxhall in my collection:

Opel Kadett GLS, by Gama
Image

Opel Omega, by Gama
Image

Opel Calibra, by Gama-dealer edition
Image

1914 Vauxhall Prince Henry, by Matchbox
Image



A few months ago I won a Vanguards Vauxhall Victor (in "primrose yellow", like David's) on eBay. The model never arrived! :cry:

Opel Kadett GSi bi Gama (one day I will convert it to an Astra GTE, part way there with wheel replacement, but in truth I am hoping for a new release).

Julio have put the Victor on eBay wordlwide search which will alert me when one comes up. Nothing doing at the moment. The likeliest source will be the EU of which the UK is a reluctant member !
Hope you got your money back.

Hopefully Vanguards will continue their 80s Vauxhall theme on from the Cavalier range. The Mk.3 GSI deserves a decent release, too, as the Gama one, whilst not without its charms - is a bit poor.

Schuco Vauxhall Insignia Dealer Editions.

Norev Opel Corsa OPC and Vauxhall Corsa VXR (Red and Blue, respectively).

Minichamps Opel Astra Coupe. As close as I can get to my own car, which is a darker blue and has a rear spoiler.

Thanks, David! ;)

I have eBay to alert me too when a primrose yellow Victor is available again; as a matter of fact, that's the way I bought the one that got lost. Fortunately, the seller refunded me the money immediately.

Love the liveries on the first two Vectras. I based one of my Forza designs on that idea.

The Schuco Vectra B - it always looks a bit plastic. Is it die-cast?

Yes, I had that exact car as 1:1 - it's a really good likeness
