Ford Sierra Cosworth
PRICE £27.95 LIMIT NOT SPECIFIED SCALE 1/43 REF NO CLC312
Luxembourg may be small but it’s been serious about policing, and its Gendarmerie Grand-Ducale car is a perfect example. High-visibility orange and white paint is split by well-printed striping and police lettering, and the two-tone grey interior stands out through the open driver’s window.
London Country AEC RF
PRICE £5.75 LIMIT NOT SPECIFIED SCALE 1/148 REF NO NRF005
The deep grass green and yellow livery on this number 705 bus is richly-applied, and the printing is as good as that found on larger scale models.
Mercedes-Benz C-Class DTM
PRICE £49.99 LIMIT 1,008 SCALE 1/43 REF NO 103817
David Coulthard drove this aggressive looking car in the DTM 2010 Championship. The Deutsche Post livery is highly attractive, with terrific printing and glossy paint. A wealth of interior detail is included, and the wheels and mirrors are also worthy of mention.
Nissan GT R
PRICE £12.99 LIMIT NOT SPECIFIED SCALE 1/24 REF NO 511204
Mondo’s rendition of the Japanese muscle car is respectable for the bargain price. The dash, console and bucket seats look convincing, while the front wheels are steerable and the bonnet opens to reveal a decent engine. The printing is pretty good, too.
