These two unusual 1/18 resin models (I've not seen either model replicated in 1/18 before) are made for Model Car World in Germany. There are no opening parts but the proportion and fit/finish exude quality. Model Car World's retail outlet in the US is American Excellence and their price for each of these models (approx.$117) is about half of the typical Ebay price that I've seen, and the US shipping from AE is only $12. The models (German '55 Borgward and Czechoslovakian '69 Tatra) are heavy and well detailed and one of the things about resin models that appeals to me is that they'll never suffer from the dreaded paint rash that often afflicts diecast models over time. I sent off for these two models the moment that I saw them available and photographed them as soon as I received them.

Those are two subjects that I'd love to have in 1/24 plastic kits.

Very cool models and I'd have no problem with a $117 price if those are handbuilt resin models. The quality looks outstanding.

I think I remember Revell of Germany doing a Borgward and a few other odd ball Euro cars in 1/18 diecast a while back.

I'm not in to this type of car but the trim work and paint is incredible.

They do produce some really outstanding model cars. And o yes, they are different as your heading says :) Nice pieces for your collection. Enjoy :)

Very fine replicas both - and refreshingly different. I have the 1:18 Borgward coupe from Revell and I like it a lot but its finish doesn't compete with these two.
