New Commodore Supercar breaks cover

I really am not sure how the Aussies will take to the German built Insignia which will now be called the Commodore once the Australian production finishes. The Aussie Supercars will never be the same again, but these are changing times. New Commodore Supercar breaks cover The Gen2 Commodore will make its Supercars debut powered…

2018 Holden Commodore prototype review

I have been blissfully unaware that Holden will call the new Insignia a Commordore in two years time. Haven driven a VE Series II and potentially will be driving a VF in a couple of weeks, there is a huge hat that this car has to wear. Whether Aussies will take to it remains to…

Majorette Opel Adam

Love dealer models. And this is where Mattel falls totally flat on its arse. (John Lambert will disagree of course). Majorette just seems to get this right time and time again and with this release in its own unique Opel Dealer packaging. These are staying MOC – there is no way on earth I am…

The Opel Collection is STILL carrying on!!

Seriously, fuck me. Eaglemoss Publications don’t know whether they are coming or going. They have now officially canned the Opel Collection website – and all the images that are associated with it. They are now purporting on https://www.eaglemoss.com/de-de/modelle-modellbau/opel-collection/ that the collection now goes up to issue 110, but having looked at their images, we are once again…

Back to the old skool via GM

I like this a lot – Back before we had a Vectra and one name for the entire range, Vauxhall and Opel used to have separate names per model: Ascona was a Cavalier Omega was a Carlton Kadett was a Chevette. Now it is good to hear with the new small car from Vauxhall, they…

The Opel Collection – game over……………

Well, it had to come sooner or later – and confirmation below that the partwork series The Opel Collection by Eaglemoss has finally come to an end: For those not fluent in German, it basically says that orders are no longer being taken. And I have to say that I am not surprised in the…

The Opel Collection – game over…………..

Well, I think it is now time to call it quits on the Opel Collection – The latest line up of models look like just being flogged to death and there is nothing that seems to be of worthy note or outstanding. Converting moulds to Police liveries is cheeky and taking the piss a tad.…

The Opel Collection – 1/43 Opel Kadett B Caravan

More estate cars. A decent model, with a little bit of flaw within the paintwork on the door, this is one of the remaining models that I have as part of the Opel Collection still to come. The pictures do the model justice in terms of attention to detail as with the majority of this…

The Opel Collection – 1/43 Opel Rekord E Caravan

The Opel Collection as far as I am concerned is on its last legs – Issue 89 gives us a Police version of the Opel Rekord D…………………how that is part of the model line up, I do not know, but nevertheless, I suppose that this is making the best use of the casting. So let’s…

The Opel Collection – running out of steam………………

Latest additions to the Opel Collection have been released and I have to say that this is now looking like flogging a dead horse. Here are the latest four from the collection and I am pleased to say that they are a great big pile of shite: 4. 1983 – 1984 OPEL KADETT D GTE…
