DeAgostini have recently launched their take on the collection series via Mercedes Benz.
Like the Opel Collection, this is only available within the German speaking countries of Europe - AT, DE & CH.
And they are getting me to spend my money as well - CHF25.90 is quite expensive when you can actually get them in Germany for €12.99, but I just don't have time to go there and grab a copy and by the time you have got in the car and driven across the border, you have already spent time and effort that you didn't need to.
Like the Opel Collection, I am going to pick and choose what I want - I am more after stuff from the 1960s to date. The models are made by Altaya and not IXO - but they all look good so far.
I have got the first few models from this collection -
1954 300SL Gullwing
1963 230SL "Pagoda"
1963 600 Pullman - which is a beast of a casting!
This is the staple diet of Minichamps and AutoArt - at around £18.99 in Swiss money this is not that bad a buy - as the former hit around £40 a shot.
Photos and reviews to follow - but I am going to be skint.
