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…

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…

The Opel Collection continues on

So via the likes of Farcebook, there are some further additions to the Opel Collection from Eaglemoss publications: 78. 1973 – 1980 OPEL BEDFORD BLITZ 79. 1937 – 1938 OPEL SUPER 6 80. 1993 – 2000 OPEL CORSA B 81. 1984 – 1988 OPEL MANTA B GSi 82. 1960 – 1963 OPEL REKORD P II…

The Opel Collection – Opel Commodore C

For ages when I was a wee one, I used to love looking at a book of cars in Infant school. There was this car which really looked like a Vauxhall Carlton/Viceroy…….but it was not a Vauxhall – it was from Australia and called Holden………..no bloody idea. Forward a few years and the Opel Commodore…

The Opel Collection – Opel Diplomat A Coupe

So I have got the saloon version of this one when it was released almost 2 years ago now. The Diplomat is one of the huge bruisers that is wider than the grin on fat person who has been given a year’s worth of junk food to eat. In a time when size did not…

The Opel Collection – Opel Olympia A

Cutesy is one word that can summarise this model. The predecessor to the Kadett, this is a well detailed edition to the Opel Collection. Wheels are re-created superbly and I love the fact that there are some whitewalls added to them. That vinyl roof works really well (ok, it is not vinyl, but the paint…
