Resin Roundup – Matrix

By Maz Woolley with contributions from Hans-Georg Schmitt

 

The marketplace for 1:43 scale resin models seems to be growing all the time. Once the preserve of small specialists making small batches of highly detailed models it now dominates the middle grounds of the collectors market and white metal models are much less common in this scale than they were. This article takes a look at some of the latest resin releases in this scale, and future releases, using pictures supplied by Matrix.

As ever Matrix mix a few standard vehicles like the Riley RM with a selection of other vehicles with rare or in some cases unique bodies. The models also cover a wide period from the 1930s through to the 1980s. The models are made in resin to 1:43 scale in China for Matrix.
