Biante is one of the new names in diecast Down Under. Their d’etre is to produce the many cars exclusive to Australia Holden and Ford. Thanks to an Christmas present from Rob I now have a Biante model in my (David, I’m saving cars for January).

The ‘Car of the is a Holden Monaro HT GTS 350 and looks an Aussie Chevy Nova The is excellent. including red-line The quality of Biante’s models is like that of Racing

At a recent toy show, I found a of interesting models at budget A Yat Ming Camaro filled a hole in the collection. These are solid, all-metal and under-rated. A Tomica Mazda Cosmo a pull-back motor seems by collectors.

The Honda Accord is far better-known and I was very happy to find much-wanted model.

The Hot Wheels is clearly intended to be a Paris-Dakar and while generic, it is the first in Two older Matchbox models found. The Dune Buggy is so 1970’s and the price was right.

The is refreshingly clean of Tampos. Two new models actually represent cars! The Mini Cooper is at best and by my count the 13th new in small-scale.

I like the flag on the roof. The Vibe may be the regular-line best of the year and yet it is a pale shadow of Matchbox represented before smothered by Mattel.

Who can resist a little Tootsietoy Ford for just $2? Not me. The VW Beetle by Universal is but for a quarter, who cares?

Welly’s 206 Sedan is ample evidence the spirit of Matchbox has passed to a new of toy car makers.

Three more cars from Johnny are as good as ever. JL seem to offer every muscle car between 1964 and 1973. I resist them but prefer the new themes.

The Ford Mustang from Fast 111’s was such a casting that it became a after Universal’s buyout of MB. The A310 is far from common so a crude example is worth The price was fair.

Peugeot 206

Any missing is welcome and David Cook these two F1 cars my way in trade. The is rather sober in color and the car sports Viceroy graphics but no to the car represented.

Mega Speed Polyfect is the current king of cheap toy cars. Every store seems to have Recent finds seem to be of Matchbox and others.

The ’70 Ford Mustang and Camaro could look with better paint. The Grand National, Toyota and Pontiac Firebird are also castings.

Four more from Norev arrived and it keeps getting better. lost count of the number of new castings in 2003 but it is impressive! How the Citroen Xsara WRC rally car just won the Manufacturer’s Championship. The 206 WRC car from 2003 makes a pair. Easily the most and unique model from is the Peugeot H20 fire vehicle

This is not a fantasy vehicle. The top on the 206CC is removable and 20 years now will be a hard-to-find piece.

The French revival in diecast with Majorette. It appears Norev is causing Majorette to what the market wants. The 206 WRC comes in both 2002 and colors.

The tampos are accurate but cars lack interiors. The Micra has an interior and is a reminder of the of old. More models this will bring and collectors running. The Peugeot is clearly not at the level of the Norev but it is half the price and with colors deserves respect.

was the last time we had this new French car castings in a single This month alone I 8 new Peugeot models (thanks

A trip to Canada brought two of the new Toy models and now I want to find the Real Toy is the real thing and is Welly for heir to the Matchbox The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is as good as any toy car for less than $1.

The paint and put many collector models to The BMW M3 is just as good and only the are keeping these models 1st class. If Real Toy were to use like shown on the Welly they could claim to be the of their class.

It would be to see some more creative in models represented.
