Top Marques models are resin cast with photoetched details in China for the Netherlands. They produce models in 1:18 and 1:12 scale. Here we look at some of their 1:12 scale models to be issued in 2019. Some of the models feature removable bonnets and super detailed engines and engine bays.

A Large-Scale 1963 Corvette

By Frank Koh

All text and photographs by, and copyright of, the Author unless otherwise stated.

This is a story about re-purposed, battery operated 1:12-ish scale 1963 Corvette from New Bright Hong Kong (dated 1986). A little elbow grease and creativity have breathed new life into this really neat plastic piece.

New Bright continues to produce some really cool radio controlled vehicles up to the present time. This very realistic Corvette Sting Ray Coupe originally had a tethered remote and was a slow, clumsy drive, which is probably why its first owner cut the wires that mated the steering and throttle control box to the model. Seeing its potential as a convincing big-scale display piece, I took it apart, painstakingly buffed the black plastic body to a uniform glossy finish, and carefully detail painted the exterior and interior componentry.

The “Sidewinder” pipes below the passenger compartment were a popular option, until the car owner’s girlfriend accidentally received second degree burns when alighting from the car! The trademark “Knock-Off” wheels were also nicely replicated in this big scale car. However, the rear track of the model seemed a bit exaggerated, most likely done on purpose to make the remote control a bit easier to maneuver.

The legendary 1963-only Split Window design of the Corvette Sting Ray coupe makes it a favorite among collectors.

The New Bright Corvette featured retractable headlights that could be illuminated with a flick of the switch on the original control panel.

I replicated the real car’s rosewood steering wheel by tweaking a jar of Tamiya Metallic Copper Acrylic. The gauge surrounds and inserts, including the needles, were picked out with silver paint using a toothpick. Take note of the “T-Handle” shifter, an obvious aftermarket add-on replicated in this New Bright Corvette. Also while those sport mirrors are definitely not era-correct, they added a pleasing touch to the “modded” look of the car.

With poseable steering and a pair of retractable headlight assemblies, this old ‘Vette shows its versatility and is capable of being displayed as the mood of the moment dictates. Okay, so it’s not an expensive hand built resin masterpiece of recent manufacture, but do those limited-edition high end models have peek-a-boo lights and front wheels that steer?

A look around in November 2018

By Maz Woolley

All text by, and copyright of, the Author. Photographs provided by manufacturers and wholesalers.

There is a huge range of models being released in the final quarter of this year. This article looks at models from a wide range of manufacturers that we do not often review.

Bburago and Maisto

Both brands from the same maker. Well known for budget models and often selling in toy shops and stores which offer few other model vehicles. The models are often in larger scales but 1:43 models also feature.

B18-11040 1:18 Bugatti Chiron


Bburago Triumph Bobber 1:18


M31409 1:10 Honda Repsol 2017 Marc Marquez #93

Ready painted assembly kits 1:24 ferarri FXX-X


M39124 1:24 Build your own Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4

B18-31456 Mercedes Benz car transporter with 1 x 1:43 die cast car

B18-30393 1:43 Suburu WRX STI 2017 sold from trade pack

 

CMC

 

CMC models are famed for being both expensive and beautifully modelled. Here we see a group of Ferrari racing cars built to their usual very high standards. All the models date back to the classic 1950s racing scene.

CMC M183 Ferrari D50, 1956, GP Italy (Monza) #26 Collins/Fangio


CMC M184 Ferrari D50 yellow GP Belgium #20 Pilette and Lancia D50 #6 Ascari


CMC M185 Ferrari D50,1956 long nose, GP Germany #2 Collins

Ixo

Many of the Atlas Jaguar models have yet to be seen under the Ixo brand. Here we have the Mark Ten which appeared in the Atlas series with a rather ‘tip-toes’ appearance in maroon. Here we see it in a pale blue with slightly more detailed wheels. It still has Jaguar on the number plates rather than realistic ones.

 

IXO CLC291 Jaguar MK 10, metallic-light blue, 1961

Almost Real

They are makers of detailed 1:18 scale resin models, many sold in as promotionals by the manufacturers. This is a model of one of the last Defenders made.

ALM 810307 Land Rover Defender 110 Heritage Collection Green

Road Kings

Following the Scania recently looked at in MAR Online  there is now a new model. Again this is a classic tractor unit, this time from Mercedes-Benz. Again it looks a large and impressive diecast model.

Mercedes LPS 1632 1969 blue/red/black 1:18

Tecnomodel

These resin kits are very detailed resin models mostly to 1:18 scale and are made in Italy.

TEC 18111C Lotus Evora 410 met green 2017

These models are made in small batches. Batches are also to be made in yellow, silver and black


TEC 1897A Bizzarrini P538 Le Mans 1966 #10

Driven by Edgar Berney and Andre Wicky. The same mould has been used to produce two press versions in red and blue. There is also to be a blue Can-Am version.

CMR (Classic Model Replicars)

CMR make diecast models in China. They make a wide range of classic racing models. Most models are in 1:18 scale.

CMR 045 Porsche 917 LH #18 24h LeMans 1971 Rodriguez, Oliver


CMR 070 Ferrari 340 Berlinetta Mexico #20

3rd placed in the Carrera Panamericana  in 1952 driven by Chinetti and Lucas


CMR 111 Shelby Cobra Daytona coupe #12 24h LeMans 1965

Driven by Schlesser and Grant


CMR 112 Shelby Cobra Daytona #59 24h LeMans 1965

Driven by Harper and Sutcliffe


CMR 113 Aston Martin DBR1 #5 Winner 24h LeMans 1959

Driven by Shelby and Salvadori

CMR 12006 Ferrari 330 P4 #21 2nd 24h LeMans 1967 1:12 Scale

Driven by Scarfiotti, Parkes

BoS (Best of Show)

Best of Show is a brand produced for ModelCarGroup in Germany. The models are made in resin in China. Initially BoS models were made in 1:43 and 1:18 scale at a lower standard than the premium brands MCG own like Neo. After they stopped making 1:87 scale Neo models they introduced a slightly less detailed range of resin 1:87 scale models under the BoS brand. Here we see two of the Renault cars available which feature good wheels and detailing.

Renault 18, rot, 1978


Renault Fuego, metallic-dunkelbeige, 1980

CMF

Another MCG brand made in China from resin to 1:18 scale. These are detailed models and considerably dearer than their MCG diecast 1:18 scale range.   Following the fashion to model the immediately pre-war German streamliners that is popular with many ranges this year.

Maybach DS8 Stromlinien-Cabriolet Spohn, light grey and black  1934


Maybach SW35 Stromlinie Spohn, black and beige 1935

Minichamps for 2018

By Maz Woolley

It is the time of year for long lists of models from all the major producers. Minichamps are no exception to this. Although there are 1:43 scale releases the emphasis seems to be on the larger scales like 1:12 and 1:18 and the re-introduced 1:87 scale range and these are the ranges covered in this post. Keeping up with the times Minichamps feature a lot of new electric and hybrid vehicles and as ever a lot of sporting vehicles in multiple liveries.

The Scooter in Miniature – Other Makes

By Dave Turner

Photographs and illustrations of some of the models discussed in this article taken by the Author may be found at the end of the article. 

Ducati

Ducati began producing radio parts in 1922 followed by cameras and electric razors. After the Second World War Ducati acquired Siata to produce clip-on motors for cycles and in 1952 launched the Cruiser scooter. Years before its time it featured a 175cc ohv four stroke motor with a 12 volt electric starter, automatic transmission and styling by Ghia. Far too sophisticated for the period it died after just two years but another attempt came with the totally basic Brio 48 in 1964 with a 94cc 2 stroke motor followed by the Brio 50 and 100/25 between 1968/9.

A very nice model of the Cruiser is available sold as Altaya but made by Ixo no doubt in conjunction with a part-work. Of mainly diecast construction it features plastic side panels and working steering.

Heinkel

Makers of German aircraft since 1922 Heinkel were limited to three and two wheeled vehicle production after the Second World War. Their 150cc Tourist 101 was made from 1953-54 and featured a four stroke engine. This model was replaced by the 175cc 102 in 1954 while a Mk11 version with more streamlined rear bodywork was made from 1962-67. A smaller two stroke machine, the 112 featured a 125cc engine in 1960 but was enlarged to 150 in 1961 for continued production until 1967.

Schuco produced some superb 1:10 scale diecast models of the Mk11 Tourist in a variety of versions as well as smaller versions in their Piccolo range.

Jawa

The Czech firm of Janacek made the German Wanderer motor cycle under licence and when they merged with the Czech Arms Works who had made motor cycles since 1932, the name Jawa was created. Their distinctive 501 scooter made from 1957-64 featured a pointed nose that accommodated the fuel tank and the headlamp. A subsequent model the 502 had more power with a 175 engine and the headlight was later moved onto the apron being replaced in the nose by the horn. In 2017 an electric powered scooter, the 507, featured the same styling and is to be built in limited numbers in China.

A smaller engined and less eye-catching scooter, the Manet appeared in 1958 and featured a 98cc motor and became the Tatran with 125 motor in 1965.

A flywheel powered plastic toy Cezeta captured the recognisable styling very well and carries the CH logo as its only means of identification.

MBK

The French Motobecane company made motor cycles from 1923, the post war Mobylette being among their most popular products. In 1984 the Japanese Yamaha company became its parent company and the name became MBK. Among the contemporary Japanese parent companies products was the Zuma scooter and MBK gave it the name Booster and the French factory have produced these in large numbers in 50 and 125cc versions.

Appropriately Majorette, possibly in conjunction with Hatchette, have produced a model of the French version of this machine, said to be a 1995 50cc example.

Malaguti

This Italian company began in 1930 producing pedal cycles but like many moved into mopeds and scooters in the post war period. A myriad of different scooters were produced but the Phantom F12 appeared in 1997. The F12 Phantom had a 50cc motor and was water cooled, production lasting until 2003.

Maisto produced a 1:18 scale diecast model of the F12 Phantom and it comes complete with “liquid cooled” stickers that are barely legible.

Mitsubishi

Mitsubishi began as a shipping company in 1870 and from 1881 developed into a huge conglomerate embracing first coal mining, then steel producing, shipbuilding, insurance and eventually producing anything and everything imaginable. From 1921 aircraft were produced and in common with some other Japanese operations they enforced slave labour during the Second World War. Motor scooter production began in 1946 with the 112cc C10 Silver Pigeon while at least seventeen further developments of the Silver Pigeon scooter were made up to the early 1960s, taking 45% of the Japanese scooter market.

The C110 Silver Pigeon was a 175cc 4 stroke machine with automatic transmission made between 1960/61 and some tinplate toys of which were made by both Marusan and Bandai.

Simson

The German Simson brothers got into the gun and gun barrel producing business in 1856 and by 1896 were making bicycles. Although firearms continued to be their principle products cars were made from 1907 to 1934 – with the inevitable wartime gap. As the Simson family were Jewish, the German Third Reich seized their factory in 1936 renaming the operation BSW. Following the Second World War the factory ended up in the German Democratic Republic and began producing 4 stroke motor cycles in 1949. In 1955 the Simson name was restored and the production of two stroke mopeds began developing into the KR51 Simson Schwalbe (Swallow) scooter in 1964. This featured a 50cc motor and large 16” wheels and with an increase in power output became the KR51/1 in 1968. The subsequent KR 51/2 remained in production until 1986 and the Schwalbe has become quite collectable in Germany.

A 1:10 diecast Simson KR 51/1 Schwalbe was produced by Schuco in 2006 while a much smaller 1:87 model of the same subject has been made by Herpa.

Suzuki

This Japanese company began by producing loom machines in 1909 but was trying to expand its product base by experimenting with a prototype light car prior to the Second World War. Following the hostilities production of 36cc powered cycles began in 1952, motor cycles in 1954 and cars a year later. In the early 1980s their first scooters appeared with the CS50, 80 and 125, called Gemma in Asia, Roadie in the UK and Puch Lido in Europe.

A 1:28 scale diecast Gemma 50 was made by Tomy, a slightly larger 1:24 scale diecast of the same subject from Tamiya and kits in 1:12 scale from Aoshima/Imai.

Yamaha

Yamaha began producing pianos and reed organs in 1887 and ultimately became the largest manufacturers of musical instruments in the world. They first produced motor cycles is 1954 with their 125cc two stroke Dragonfly, that was based on the German DKW RT 125, as was the BSA Bantam. Their first of many scooters came in 1981 with the 50cc Salient and 80cc Beluga, Riva in the US and Hercules in Europe. In 1985 a 125cc version was added. The Zuma scooter came in 1989 and this was also made in France by MBK. In an effort to modernise their range of scooters Yamaha produced the YJ 50 Vino in 2001 which continued until updated into the XC50 in 2006. Production of this continues today while the 125cc version lasted from 2004-10. The Yamaha Majesty was a large machine appearing in 2001 and was produced in 125, 250 and 400cc sizes.

In model form Yamaha scooters have been produced in various sizes and materials. Plastic kits for the Beluga came from Aoshima/Imai in 1:12 scale and Otaki in 1:16 scale, while a diecast 1:24 scale version came from Tomica. A diecast/plastic 1:18 scale Vino YJ50R came from Welly, a diecast 1:6 scale version of the same was done by New Ray while the big Majesty DX 400 also came in 1:18 scale from Welly.

Zundapp

This German company began by producing detonators in 1917 but as the demand for weapons parts declined after the war motor cycle manufacture began in 1921. Following the Second World War microcar, moped and scooter production was undertaken and inspired by the Parilia Greyhound, the Zundapp Bella scooter appeared in 1953. These became generally regarded as among the best scooters in the world at the time and through various updates continued in both 150 and 200 versions until 1964. An attempt to get into the small scooter market was launched in 1964 with the Roller 50 that was based on the contemporary Lambretta Slimline. The company closed in 1985 and the factory and stock were moved to China.

At least three very different miniature Bellas have been made. Tinplate toys came from Technofix while a variety of 1:10 scale diecast models of the 1957-59 R204 came from Schuco in 2004. The latter included solo examples, some with “Deutsche Bundespost” boxes mounted on the rear as well as machines with sidecars. There has also been some 1:43 scale models of the same R204 Bella from Premium Classix, in this case those with a rear box are marked “Ginos Pizza”

Unknown

As a final section there has been a few toys of scooters that so far have not been identified, in fact they are probably not meant to depict any particular example.

A quite imaginatively styled plastic battery driven toy called Chalmy Rider came from WS in Hong Kong and carries the number 6623 under its base. The seat tips revealing space that accommodates a couple of AA batteries, the fitting of which drives the twin rear wheels and illuminated an orange headlight.

An extremely slim plastic toy scooter that vaguely resembles something like the Triumph Tina carries no markings at all and probably came as an accessory to a Barbie type toy.

An all wood crafted toy has a suggestion of machine made parts that have been glued together but carries a barcode under its base.

Minichamps – Announcements January 2017

By Maz Woolley

 

Here are Minichamps latest announcements. All are made in China for Germany in a variety of scales and materials. These are expected to be released over the first two months of 2017 and I am sure more new models will be revealed at the start of February when Minichamps will have a stand at the Nuremberg Toyfair.

The releases cover 1:12 for motorbikes and 1:18 and 1:43 scales for other vehicles. Both diecast and resin bodies are used. The racing vehicles are finished with very detailed liveries and where made in metal may have opening parts.

A single release in the Maxichamps range is shown. The BMW 700, which was produced in the standard Minichamps road cars range many years ago, and which is now produced as a budget model.

Minichamps continue to focus on producing models of Formula 1 old and new, Moto GP, and Touring car racing.  The  cars  are often produced in both 1:18 and 1:43 scales. Road cars are still released but now form a smaller proportion of their output. Road cars made to 1:18 scale seem to be released as frequently as 1:43 scale in the MInichamps range. .

Where pictures of hand made samples were provided by MInichamps these have been shown.
