Schuco BMW 507
Seeing as this BMW is one of the most beautiful cars ever made, it seems to have been badly neglected in 1/43. Just noticed Schuco did one so snapped it up recently. Overall I really like this model, the 'on its haunches' stance seems just right at the front. Something is not quite right at the back; I thought it looked too stubby but I think the culprit is the hardtop, it comes back too far and overlaps the trunk's edge. Shame as the hardtop is prettier in my eyes than the convertible.

I've stuck some German plates on and swapped the slightly tall and narrow tyres (they were a bit bicycle-like) with some black ones from, would you believe, a Starline Alfa 2000 Berlina.

Infinitely better than the Minichamps very poor effort

Beautiful BMW, Carl. Very nice paint finish. Schuco has done some very nice models over the years. (EOM) by David Knight #27170.2
