Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Mercedes F1 W06 1st USA 2015 Hamilton 1:18 Alternative version MIN110150044 1st Australia & MIN110150344 1st Japan Lewis Hamiltonís elation at winning his third World Championship was clear to see at the end of the 2015 US Grand Prix and this well finished model by Minichamps includes a figurine of him crouched on the front of the car, fists clenched, just before he leapt into the air. The figure is located using a peg in one foot, so there is a fairly obvious hole in the bodywork if you were to display the model without him. The main model has an excellent paint finish and neatly placed decals, with carbon texturing where necessary but as usual we are frustrated by the lack of open vents on the rear wing endplates, which is very obvious in this scale.
One of the market leaders in die-cast models. Good shapes, excellent paint and decoration. 1:43rds are kerbside while 1:18ths usually have plenty of opening parts and detail. Also an increasing number of 1:43 resincast models. Made in China.
