I remember having some myself back when I was a kid and have been looking to source some in the UK. Does anyone know of anywhere other than eBay, that sells them?
Yep, not the best, like Maisto, but a decent start for someone who wants to see what's like to collect diecasts before going into the big ones like AutoArt or Norev.
If you have the money, go for AutoArt, but if you're like me, not having the money for them, just go for Norev. Normally they're much cheaper than AutoArt, but still look very good.
BTW, i went to Montreal Auto Show this weekend, and i bought a Maisto Jaguar XJ220(like pic). I know it's not the best thing and it's old as fuck, but as far as i know, they're the only company that made a 1/18 Jaguar XJ220(besides Tamiya, which is a 1/24 that you need to build.)
And it's also my dream car, so i had to buy it.
>I know that they are still being sold with the bburago name
The kits? They seem almost impossible to find. I'm assuming they're OOP now as I cannot find a retailer that has a selection in stock and eBay is mostly the pre-assembled ones.
