TOPIC: VAZ/Lada by Minsk

VAZ/Lada by Minsk 10 years, 1 month ago #1

Platinum Boarder

About 1:64th scale. Front is missing, though I got a mold to reproduce one.

I never did restore that car, but recently received a better looking one in the collection:



As you possibly can see, it has a license plate with "2101 VAZ" which is what the model represents, a VAZ 2101.

The die cast version look as though they are put together like the 1/1 versions not very well...

For it's time it was quite reasonable with nice details that other brands did not feature. In that sense I have to disagree. Early Lada's were not too bad, actually. Only in the eighties did quality start to suffer.

I have got some Russian Diecast ones here, that I am selling for someone. I can't read all the testys on the bases, so here are a few.


Each photo represents a lot, so if you are interested JC let me know

The scale of the Minsk Lada is about 1:64 (I think it says something to that effect) and the ones you posted are 1:43.

 

I don't know the orange car in the first picture, the other two depict two different types of Moskvitch (the blue one being a Russian made Opel Kadett, after the tooling was moved after the war to Russia).

It seems the second picture has a Lada (left) Volga (middle) and Moskvitch.

We then get a ZiL

The picture after that shows Moskvitch models also known as Aleko in export markets.

An Estonian (I believe) RAF (Riga Automobile Factory) van.

The Jeep-like vehicle is a UAZ

We end with a picture of a Volga and Chaika (both made in 1:1 by GAZ).

Nice collection, but too big to fit in my collection. I do 1:64ish cars.
