Besides their cool museum, Italeri had lots of great new kits on display, as well as some very cool dioramas. Here's a sampling...
These guys really do do some great trucks:
I had a great time chatting with the guys who run Tecnomodel. They've been involved in the Italian modelmaking world for a long time, and their models are a variety of wonderful resin cars in 1/43 and 1/24. Just check out these pics. All the models are high-end and very limited in quantities, usually around 10-20 of each colour at 1/43.

We may have started a trend! We were far from being the only ones with vintage toys on display at Nuremberg this year. Solido had some, La Mini Minera had some, and renowned model kit makers Italeri had a mini-museum of their past products on display to mark their 50th anniversary. It was great to see these kits alongside all their great new items. We'll be covering their new stuff in a separate blog post, but in the meantime, check out the contents of their museum!
Phew, I think that's the longest title I've ever had on a blog post. There was so much Neo goodness that I almost didn't know where to start! Here's the pics!
So much Neo to cover! We already looked at the 1/43 American cars, now here's a few shots of some of the 1/18 scale models. These are resin like the smaller ones, and incredibly detailed.
Brumm have been active in the diecast world for quite some time now, being one of the first companies to make models of vintage cars, back in the 70's. This year, however, they had some great models of classic Fiats and were another of the companies to join (successfully) the racing transporter bandwagon.
Remember the Fiat 127?
