I thought that I would blog about some of the diecast models that I have accumulated over the years. I have quite a few and will have many more posts to come on the subject. All of these models are 1:43 scale.
To the left are three models that are all racing cars, as are most of my models. The first one, to the left is a Toyota TS010 that competed at the 1993 Le Mans 24 hour race and was driven by David Brabham. The model is from IXO models. The centre model is a Mazda 727 from the 1983 Le Mans race and was made by Bizarre Models, whilst the model on the right is the 1967 Ford XT GT that won at Bathurst and was made by Classic Carlectibles.
Above are some Nissans sports racing cars from over the years. The extreme left model is Quartzo’s Nissan R391 from the 1999 Le Mans race. Next to it are a Nissan R89C from the 1989 Le Mans and a Nissan R91CK from the 1991 Daytona 24 Hours, a race which it took victory. Both of these models are by Japan’s Q-Model, while the car on the extreme right is a Nissan R390 by Quartzo, which took third place at the 1998 Le Mans 24 Hours.
The final two models that I will showcase in this post are both Martini Lancia’s. I do think that the red white and blue Martini livery is the best. At the left is a Madyero white metal model of a Lancia LC2 from the Monza 1000kms of 1983, whilst at the right is a Lancia LC2 of 1982 by Le Mans 43.
