Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Given how competitive the diecast segment of the market is, Minichamps may be slightly cheaper than Spark and have a fairly loyal following, but looking at the difference in quality of the models for the sake of a few quid, they need to up their game. The main body finish and decoration is no problem at all, but the smaller parts such as the wings are very chunky by comparison and they’re not even on straight on one of our samples.
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.
