Land Rover Collection
PRICE £19.95 LIMIT NOT SPECIFIED SCALE 1/76 REF NO 76SET15
Here’s a real treat for Land Rover fans... five in one box! Included are three standard vehicles (one minus rear cover), a fire service ‘landy’ with bonnet-mounted hoses and an AA vehicle. A fine collection and great value.
CREATIVE MASTER NORTHCORD
PRICE £39.99 LIMIT 804 SCALE 1/76 REF NO UKBUS 5026
Buses don’t come much smarter than this metallic grey and green example, with platinum branding run by Arriva/UK Metro. An enviable amount of detail sits in the interior, but the best feature is its sharp printing on the bodywork and windows. An excellent option for bus fans.
PRICE £185 LIMIT 1,500 SCALE 1/18 REF NO 166075
A truly astonishing level of detail lifts this stunning Tyrrell replica above the competition. Its engine has to be seen to be believed, with seemingly every single lead and cable accounted for. It portrays Jody Schekter’s No 3 car in the 1976 Japanese Grand Prix. An F1 collector’s dream.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe
PRICE £39.99 LIMIT 1,000 SCALE 1/43 REF NO 450741400
A beautiful gold finish adorns this super-sleek sports car, but that’s not the only benefit. Well-detailed brake units and an excellent interior also make this replica one to look out for.
