This one was part of the batch that I got at the Geneva Motor Show this year.
For me, there will only be one ever Porsche casting that will stand out – K-70 Porsche Turbo via the Lesney Matchbox SuperKings. But the Garage needs smaller cars and of 1/64. So this fits the brief.
One thing that Minichamps does very well over rivals such as TLV and Oversteer is the interior detailing. On this example it is superb – you even get the centre console and the buttons. Especially as it is rag top as well – thus the inside needs to be displayed. It is re-created in minute detail so very little to be negative about, if anything at all.
Lush detail includes seeing the brake disc inset behind the wheel; the deep gleam of the paintwork and the overall finish of the model. It really is a fine casting. And at just over £3.50 for a normally £10 priced model, this is great.
I have a few more to muse about, but you can see why I snapped these up.
