New Solido 1/18 and 1/43 scale models promise a spectacular year
The end of the year is approaching fast and Solido has unveiled the first models for 2024.
Whether in 1/18 or 1/43 scale, the company based in Morbihan, France, promises a spectacular year. At the same time, 2024 will be a year of re-order, as Clément Rouvière, Product Manager at Solido, explains: "This year Solido is going to stabilise, and we're going to give pride of place to our new 1/24 and 1/43 ranges in order to build loyalty among our customers, while remaining attentive to their expectations. We're looking to the world with a broader range to satisfy as many people as possible."
While the company celebrated its 90th anniversary back in 2022, the Solido name itself will celebrate its 90th anniversary in 2024. So, it's natural that a large number of new models, in both 1/18 and 1/43 scale, will soon be arriving. Stability will definitely be the order of the day, with more regular releases set at 16 models per month (8 for 1/18 and 8 for 1/43).
In 1/18 scale, we can expect a wide variety of models including a Dacia Duster 2023, Honda Civic EG6, BMW 635 CSI, 993 RWB and the Mazda RX-7 FD and Renault 5 GT Turbo.
The JDM (Japan Domestic Market) is in the spotlight too with two iconic 1/18 scale models: the Honda Civic and the Mazda RX7. For Clément Rouvière, the arrival of the famous Mazda in the range is a pleasure, but above all "a sign that the world of collecting is getting younger!” Since its comeback in 2015, the French brand has been keen to surprise its fans and collectors around the world. The brand goes where it's not necessarily expected, to offer a subtle blend of originality and coup de coeur. Clément Rouvière reiterates the brand's credo: "We have to continue to surprise, while always remaining connected to our collectors." He also adds that surprises are part of Solido's DNA: "It's a bit like our trademark, and for 2024 we've got a model that will leave you speechless!"
