Anyone ever buy any NoRev models recently? I had some of their old old old 1:43 before and wasnít too impressed but they have some interesting selection now (especially for vintage French cars!) and I decided to take a flyer on a beautiful looking blue Mercedes S-Class with AMG package in 1:18 scale... I am actually shocked how high the quality is on this model! First of all, it weighs a tonne because itís diecast and itís full open with steerable wheels. Fit and finish is great, the doors even close with a springy thud like a true German luxury car should haha... interior is nicely detailed, painted with minimal sticker use, cloth seatbelts and rear seat has a fun tray table deployed. Trunk is covered in soft touch fabric material as are the carpets inside. Even the tint of the moonroofs are a different colour than the rest of the windows. I gotta say, for a bit over $100usd this model is a crazy deal, itís about 95% of an AutoArt signature at 1/3rd the price and still diecast.

Not sure if other NoRev models are of equal quality but this particular one is impressive! I also picked up a Brooklands Capri 280 on sale but I havenít opened that one yet, though I can see right away on that particular model the wheels arenít quite up to snuff. Close, but not quite.

i have the norev bmw m1, would rate it a grade below autoart but it's like 1/3 of the price so very happy with it

the guy at diecast society put BBS on his... making it quite premium



thanks for reminding me next on the list is citroen ds and original alpine a110 from norev

Finally got my hands on what I think is the best hot wheels set ever. Could never find these locally either due to low volume or scalpers.

Just added the One-Model RocketBunny NSX to my collection. Apparently it's limited to only 99pcs so I'm happy I got one. I collect NSXs mainly as it's my favorite car. I'm not a fan of RocketBunny though but I had to have this one because of the color. They nailed the paint perfectly like the real thing. I too painted my NSX a "Kandy Apple" and know how hard it is to paint. I have the Autoart Aventador J which is supposingly a similar color in the real but the Autoart piece and paint is disappointing, it's definately not a Kandy color and more like a tame metallic red... I've been trying to source a 1:18 Volcano Red Mclaren but haven't found anything (Autoart produces a 1:12).

Funny thing is, on the original box the importer/distributor named it as a "Transparent Red RB NSX". In love with the color, it looks so wet/glossy just like my car after a fresh coating/paint!








Pardon the potato cell pics and poor lighting and heres a short clip of my kandy red nsx to compare.

Picked these up in the USA on a recent trip, not a bad haul! I discovered that the real go-to place for this stuff is Fred Meyer! That’s my pro-tip to everyone... Walmart and Target are so picked over but the selection at 2 different FM was awesome!

Yes Fred Meyer! My relatives used to always take me there when we went shopping in WA state in the 90s.

I managed to score the black CRX and white 993 at Save on Foods in Victoria recently.

Long shot but does anyone have a model BMW 1M in white they want to sell.

I’ve been to 2 Fred Meyer down here and they both had the BRE Datsun and 1 of them (exit 206-ish one) had both. They’re pricy $14.99 but very well done.
