It is only about 18 months since Sergio Goldvarg’s Goldvarg Collection was re-launched. Aimed at a relatively modest price point for high quality models made in resin with fine etched parts, the models have found a ready market with collectors . Many who have watched Brooklin and others becoming increasingly expensive over the same time period have welcomed a more affordable collection. Goldvarg models have not just had price on their side but also quality. The releases to date have provided an interesting range of models which in many cases are the first modern models of the subjects. Up to now the focus has been on US produced vehicles for which there is a strong demand.

Sergio is very happy about the sales he has made since introducing the range, with retailers regularly ordering the latest releases. The first six models GC-001 to GC-006 have all completely sold out and others are selling fast.

One interesting feature of the Goldvarg Collection development process is how Sergio has used the Internet to allow keen and knowledgeable collectors to comment on his choice of subjects, colours, and the accuracy of his pre-production samples. This appears to have been a very creative process with issues being identified and ironed out well before models are launched, and accurate and attractive colours being chosen. For collectors it offers a unique degree of participation in the development of a model range.

Looking forward to the next set of releases due in March/April 2019 models from the 1960s are to the fore. We also see one of the classic car based vans with US Airline related livery. Please note that the models shown below are mostly samples, some even early pre-production tests and the final releases may differ slightly from what you see below.
