Alpine 1:43 models.

Ebay can be dangerous….especially ebay.fr!

I’ve had trouble finding 1:43 die cast models of Alpines that actually satisfies me in terms of proportions and accuracy….but these french made models are really great; and very affordable as well!  I bought 4 of them which came today.  On the lookout for more!

three A110s!

And this rare and super cool A210!

    Greetings! Stipistop suggested your site to me. It’s awesome.

    I collect 1/43s also. What French diecast companies do you like? Norev seems to have the largest selection. Are there others worth looking into? Thanks.

      hello and welcome! Thanks for the nice words. I must admit that most of my 1:43 models are made by Minichamps….but these Alpines are made by Eligor. It seems that Eligor, Trofeu, and Norev have the most variety of Alpines……i also love the 1:18 models by Ottomobile (french, i believe?)…but they are larger models and are more expensive, so i have not bought any. Do you have many 1:43 models? what kind of cars do you collect?

        I see that you’re friends with Motoring Con Brio. Shame on him for not letting me know about your site sooner.

        Most of my cars are Minichamps. As a matter of fact, my handle on Jalopnik and Hooniverse is Maxichamp. I have a few IXOs and Sparks as well. I never ventured into Norevs, although I am obsessed with Citroens. Since I buy most of my cars on eBay, I really don’t get to see them beforehand in person and don’t want to waste money with an unknown product.

        It’s all 1/43s for me. I don’t have the space or the budget for 1/18s.
