Oxford Diecast Pontiac Bonneville Coupe 1959

By Maz Woolley

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

Oxford Diecast has issued a re-coloured version of their 1:87 scale diecast in China for the United Kingdom 1959 Pontiac Bonneville Coupe.

The re-colour is in sunrise coral with a white roof which is a very period look.  Our review of the original issue can be found here. The model itself is excellent with a lot of very fine printing of chrome embellishments and very neatly printed wipers and window surrounds.

The wheels are excellent and the printed badges and side chrome fine.

To the rear the rear lights, badging and chrome strips are very delicately done, remember that this model is only 1:87 scale!

Inside nothing is picked out but there is a nicely moulded interior with neat door cards and dashboard.

All in all a lovely model and a well chosen colour which is enough to persuade this collector to buy another model from the same casting.

What I cannot understand is that this lovely Pontiac model which is up to the highest standards of 1:87 metal casting and finishing is made by the same company that produced the crude Isetta shown below which we recently reviewed. How can this be? Does Oxford have multiple teams responsible for models and the resultant model is good if the A-Team do it and poor if not?

After being disappointed by the model above I went back to the London Toyfair pictures and I note that the Heinkel Trojan casting on show appears to rely on the same large central shaft to hold the base on which is a very considerable disappointment. Most 1960s toymakers didn’t resort to such crude engineering.

BMW Hommage Models from Norev – Part Three

By Fabrizio Panico

All text and photographs by, and copyright of, the Author.

This is the third article in a series covering the 1:18 scale models made by Norev forming the BMW Hommage Collection. The other articles may be seen elsewhere, part one is here, and part two here.

In part two I wondered if Norev would ever produce the racing version of the CSL 3.0 Hommage, the R, presented at the Pebble Beach Elegance Contest in August 2015. And, surprise! Here it is.

The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R concept is the fourth item in the BMW “Hommage Collection” by Norev (BMW part no. 80 43 2 454 782). BMW Motorsport was founded in 1975, and 40 years later BMW was paying homage to the 3.0 CSL race car, so successful on track and winner of the constructor championship in its rookie year.

Much of the aesthetics of the car reproduced the appearance of the concept car presented at the event Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on Lake Como, in May 2015, but the designers created a new front grille and decorated the 21-inch alloy wheels with a gold and black finish, both faithfully reproduced by Norev.

The livery was a special white paint with blue and red stripes that emulated the colours of the Motorsport department referring to the original BMW 3.0 CSL of which the Hommage R also uses the iconic number “25”.

The interior includes new racing seats in carbon fibre covered with leather and equipped with safety belts with six points, and an extended roll cage in composite material. Every detail is present on the new Norev model, and comparing the two models you can check for them, but as usual you would need a strong light to see inside the dark interior. Other differences related to the driver, missing here, with a head-up display projected on the helmet visor and a racing suit specially designed by Puma for a perfect fusion between driver and car.

The model is diecast in metal as usual with only the doors opening. The only criticism we had in part two has been corrected: the box’s graphics are now much more typical of BMW (and elegant), showing the blue and red stripes and the number “25”. Well done, worthy of the Ultimate Driving Machine.

Oxford Diecast BMW Isetta

By Maz Woolley

Text and Photographs by, and copyright of the Author unless stated otherwise.

The 1:76 scale version of Oxford Diecast‘s BMW Isetta has just gone on sale. painted Signal Red this model has been diecast in China for the UK.

Isetta production in the UK started in 1957 in Brighton under licence from BMW.  The British cars had right-hand drive with the door hinged from the right hand side of the car and the steering column moved across to the right as well. UK components from Dunlop, Lucas and Girling replaced German ones.

The Isetta was not popular in the UK until the three-wheeled version was introduced exploiting the UK rules which allowed three wheelers to be treated a motorcycle and sidecar and have cheaper tax rates then a car. Isetta of Great Britain did produce four-wheeled Isettas, but these were said to be  only for export to Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. Production ceased in 1962.

The car modelled by Oxford, 60 PHN, definitely exists, and although I can find no pictures of it, the UK Vehicles website shows it to have been first registered in April 1960 with a 295cc engine. Since it is a four wheeler with left hand drive and the door opening the wrong way for the UK one wonders at its history and why Oxford chose to model this car which is hardly representative of UK made and registered Isettas. Looking at the model there are other things which are not typical for UK made cars like the side indicator which is a horizontal rather than a vertical unit.

So on to the model itself. Its small size obscures some of the rather crude features like a vertical post in the middle of the car to screw the base plate into; this is an extremely crude engineering solution. The wheels are simple plastic mouldings which are rather crude as well. The front and rear window openings are surrounded by crude black lines to represent the window surrounds, they look as poor on this model as they do on other Oxfords.

Comparing the model to the Schuco Junior BMW Isetta made by Hongwell many years ago the Oxford is fractionally smaller and has a cruder interior without the neat separately moulded steering wheel and steering column.

The Oxford also leaves the door handle in body colour though there is a slight lump to represent it. And where the Schuco has a neat printed line directly under the side windows on a raised part of the casting the Oxford has somewhat uneven tampo print leaving a strip of body colour between it and the glazing which looks unrealistic. Finally the closed canvas roof opening is painted in a shiny black rather than a matt finish where Schuco/Hongwell managed a separate matt plastic item in a semi-open position which looks rather more real.

I had been rather looking forward to this release but am thoroughly disappointed with it. Oxford has not chosen a typical UK specification Isetta with three wheels and on top of that has produced a very average casting flawed by the intrusive interior column to fix the base to. It has been detailed in an average manner and to my eye fails to reach the same engineering standard and does not capture the charm of the original in the way that the many years old Hongwell/Schuco model did.

Autocult and Avenue 43 Models March 2018

By Maz Woolley

All photographs supplied by Autocult.

Autocult have announced a Porsche Teram Puntero in the “Past Brands” series, a Fiat 750MM Panoramica Zagato in the “Small Cars” series, the Walter Regent Sodomka in the “Streamliners” series and the Maybach SW42 from the “Prototypes” series.

A new car appears in the Avenue43 range distributed by Autocult: BMW 700 Martini type 4.

All models shown are 1:43 scale resin cast in China for Germany.

Porsche Teram Puntero

This Argentinian made car has an interesting history. In the early 1950s the Argentinian Dictator Juan Perón created a state run engineering conglomerate to produce vehicles and aircraft.   A car called the Justicialista was made but only  167 sold and it was an expensive flop and production was entirely abandoned by the mid 1950s when Perón was overthrown.

A small company Teram bought the factory, tools and parts and chassis for 144 cars. They produced an entirely different set of panels to cover the chassis and sourced engines from Porsche, the same engines used in the 356.

Sales began in 1958 and it took till 1963 to sell all 144 cars.

Fiat 750MM Panoramica Zagato

Panoramica” was a concept pioneered by Ugo Zagato and the designers at Carrozzeria Ugo Zagato & Co. This involved larger side windows reaching up higher into the roof than had been previous practice and the front screen similarly extending higher into the roof.

Zagato produced eight “Panoramica-concept”  cars on the chassis of the Fiat Topolino. To prove its toughness the Fiat had to master harsh conditions and was registered for the famous rally Mille-Miglia in 1949. The tiny Fiat Zagato came fourth place in its class.

With this success Zagato added the letters “MM”, which was the acronym for Mille Miglia, to the type designation. Sadly this car never went into series production and of the eight cars built only one survives.

Walter Regent Sodomka

Walter was a Czech car maker famous for large limousines from the late 1920s onwards. The Regent  succeeded the Super 6 and used its 6 cylinder overhead valve engine. The Regent had a body made for it by Carrosserie Sodomka.

This body was  streamlined with covered rear wheels, a front end designed to split the airflow and curved to smooth its flow. The closed limousine version  has no B pillar and this gives the impression of one long glassed side which is captured well in the model. The bare chassis with drive train was offered for drivers who didn’t like the Sodomka styling.

The Regent was sold for five years  and only a few dozen were made.

 

Maybach SW42

Maybach had been a maker of luxury cars in the 1930s favoured by the rich and famous. Production of passenger cars was ceased in 1941 and not restarted at the end of the Second World War.

In 1956 Karl Maybach,  son of the company’s founder, had an urge to drive a specially bodied Maybach. A Type 42 SW model from 1937 was chosen as the chassis and a modern body built to clothe it by the coachbuilder Spohn.

BMW 700 Martini type 4

The BMW 700 was a considerable success and kept BMW alive at a time when its large limousines no longer sold enough to keep the company afloat. Willi Martini prepared racing cars based on the BMW 700 with a glass fibre body creating an attractive coupé.

This was successful in its class in touring car racing and was also sold to private buyers. Styling was then updated and magazines road tested it but it did not go into series production and in 1965 BMW ceased production of the 700 and Willi Martini moved on to tuning other vehicles.

1:18 Scale Promotional Models from Minichamps and Norev

By Fabrizio Panico

All photographs are by, and copyright of, the Author.

Here are two more promotional models made for car manufacturers to 1:18 scale.

BMW M4 GTS

 

To celebrate 30 years of the iconic M3, BMW presented an extreme interpretation of the M4, the GTS, at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.  It was launched as a limited edition of only 700 cars to go on sale from spring 2016. It immediately sold out. It was devastatingly quick with times on the Nordschleife of the Nurburgring of 11 seconds less than the Alfa Giulia Quadrifoglio.

This performance was the result of an innovative 6-cylinder 3.0 litre engine with water injection which was capable of delivering 500 horsepower and a torque of 600 Nm, and by a 20% reduction in weight over the base M3 to 1,510 kilograms, which gave a power to weight ratio of a CV per 3.0 kg.

Clearly the weight reduction affected both the interiors and the external structure, with a large use of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastics. Rear wheel drive was combined with a seven-speed double-clutch gearbox, whilst the alloy wheels were shod with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, the front ones measuring 265/35 R19 and the rear ones 285/30 R20. Lightweight carbon-ceramic brakes guaranteed precise and effective deceleration even when subjected to repeated use on the track.

The diecast metal scale model (no. 80 43 2 411 555) by Minichamps wears a matt grey livery, with acid orange accents to the front spoiler, the alloy wheels and the interiors. The two doors and the bonnet can be opened, showing a nice reproduction of the engine. At the rear a large wing interrupts the flowing line of the body. Inside a roll over protective structure doesn’t interfere with the luxury interior, complete with an extinguisher. Very well reproduced alloy wheels and chassis, which displays a massive exhaust system. An interesting and valuable model of a real car few of us will be ever able to see.

 

 

Mercedes Benz S-class V222 MOPF 2017

 

First of all let’s clarify the meaning of MOPF. it stands for “Modell Pflege” (model maintenance), which means that this is a “restyling” of the 2013 V222 model.

When introduced in 2013 the W222 (and its long wheelbase version V222) was a car aimed at being the best “executive” saloon in the world with a high level of high tech and luxury and was intended to replace the previous W221, and the Maybach 57 and 62. The external style of the car body remained that of a saloon car or limousine but with some distinctive features. The side view is characterised by a high belt line and a parabolic pattern that descends towards the tail: a third volume designed to promote the aerodynamic penetration.

There was a long list of electronic devices for the comfort and safety of the occupants. It was also the first car in the world completely free of incandescent bulbs, both externally and internally: only LED lights were fitted. In April 2017 restyled W222 and V222 were presented . A different grille was fitted for models with 6 and 8 cylinders, a new bumper for the whole range and the new headlights now had a new design that optimised the beam of light in the dark. The real news was the new range of engines, almost completely revolutionised by the arrival of the new family of modular engines, both petrol and diesel, with 6 or 8 cylinders. The previous 3 litre V6 was replaced by a new engine, but now with 6-cylinders inline, while the 4.7-litre V8 was replaced by the 4-litre bi-turbo V8. The only V12 engine remaining was the carried over 6-litre bi-turbo. As for diesel engines, there was the debut of the new 6-cylinder  inline 2.9-litre available with two power outputs. It is also worth noting that hybrid versions were not included. Mercedes preferred to replace them with traditional engines with increased efficiency and equipped with alternative technologies such as the mild-hybrid system integrated in the petrol engines.

A large number of devices to aid comfort and safety took the vehicles another step closer to autonomous driving.

The metal scale model (no. B6 696 1273) by Norev has obsidian black metallic paintwork, and looks very formal. It is also available as no. B6 696 1272 in “Designo Allanite Grey Magno” (a light grey, almost a silver). As usual the model’s body is diecast metal with plastic components. It is a high quality model hand assembled in China. All four doors can be opened, as can the hood and the trunk.

The engine and chassis are faithfully reproduced, with rich interiors, enhanced by the transparent roof. Comparing the 2017 MOPF to the 2013 version (also by Norev, no. B6 696 0158) the difference in front and rear bumpers and the front grille is clear.

Alas, the devices for the autonomous driving spoil the beauty of the grille itself. The same is true on the real car: why not a better (and more aesthetic) solution? Please, Daimler Benz …..

Anyway, this is another beautiful model to add to your Mercedes collection.

Avenue 43

By Maz Woolley

All pictures supplied by, and copyright of, the Manufacturer

Auto Cult are distributing  a new series of resin models – Avenue 43 –  made in China for Germany to 1:43 scale. The owners of the new range have appointed Auto Cult as distributors as their models are made to similar standards and the subjects are complementary to the Auto Cult range.

Here are the first three releases are shown below.

Sauter Porsche Bergspyder

Kurt Sauter built this car for Heini Walter. Powered by a 1500cc engine it was built with a fibreglass body and took part in a slalom race at Dübendorf in May 1956 , followed by other races including the Avus. Crashed later and rebuilt the car still exists.

Volkswagen 1500 Type 3 Cabriolet

12 prototypes of this cabriolet were said to have been made and some copies of Volkswagen advertising material for the car are also to be seen on the Internet. But pretty as it was this car was it was never put into production. Perhaps Volkswagen feared that this car would limit sales of the Karmann Ghia based on the same platform?

 

BMW 2800 Spicup Bertone

This concept car was shown in 1969 and was based upon design work by Marcello Gandini of Bertone. It was never developed into a BMW car but many of the styling features, particularly the cowled front end, were to be used again by Bertone for the Alfa Romeo Montreal. The roof style was also to re-appear later in a  re-worked form on the Fiat X-19. The show car was based upon a shortened BMW E3 floorpan fitted with a 2.8 litre engine which required the bonnet to have a specially raised areas fitted to clear the straight six engine.

This is another strange model from Schuco. It is a split-window Beetle yet it is fitted incorrectly with small ventilator windows in the doors. The original vehicle appeared in 1952 and was also without the “rheumatism flaps” by the A-pillars. Faults on Schuco VWs are repeated again and again in spite of information being supplied to the product manager. Schuco clearly let the Chinese manufacturers do what they want.
