NEW OLD MODELS FOUND
The tag says it all. It's all about older models which I have discovered only recently.
Here is yet another colour combination that I recently found.
This time it concerns a Volvo P1800 made by Lone Star Impy.
The white P1800 in 1:58 scale has an orange interior and comes packed in a window-box.
The Volvo P1800 by Lone Star Impy has been produced with three kinds of wheel : regular-knobby, regular-fine and flyers-mag.
Various packaging versions do exist. One example is a plain white box which was sold on the US market. And Masaduya ( a Japanese wholesaler ) designed their own very attractive packaging for models sold in Japan which was a big market for the Lone Star Flyers ranges.
And there are of course several colour combinations. Here you can read those that I'm aware off :
I found this Volvo 264 by Norev in a colour that I have never seen before.
The 1:43 scale model is painted a nice yellow with a cream white interior. This is also only the second time I have seen a cream white interior in a Volvo 264 by Norev. They have most of the time a black one.
The model car is packed in the blister with the plastic base.
I have been able to find two new versions of the Volvo 264 GL Taxi by Norev in 1:43 scale.
The first is painted in a nice turquoise metallic and the second is a red one. Both have black interiors and are packed in the same type of blister. Other characteristics of these Taxi models are the white Taxi sign and the white antenna on the roof and the black sticker on both front side doors which reads : 'Taxi-Radio 830-86-86'
