Scale model: 240 GL





This beauty was released a couple of weeks ago and just arrived today! It is a 240 GL model, in 1:18 scale, made by Minichamps and limited to 702 pieces.

Minichamps used to be one of my favourite scale model companies, but paint defects have made me being reluctant in buying more models. This model is indeed very nicely painted, although it seems as a couple of particles have been trapped under the paint on the trunk lid.

The model you can see on top is the PV4 (RE 31C), Volvo's first sedan model, yet again by Rob Eddie.
