VW Mk1 Golf GLS by Minichamps

Even though I already have quite a few VW Golf Mk1s by Minichamps, I managed to get this 1980 VW Golf GLS today to add to my collection. 

The detail is awesome as usual, as is to be expected from Minichamps. They are a limited run of only 1008 pieces. Finished in a "Diamantsilber metallic silver" the car looks stunning against the packaging black backdrop. Get one! You wont regret it.

Make: Minichamps
Model: 1980 VW Mk1 Golf GLS
Scale: 1:43
Detail: Diamantsilber metallic Silver
Limited: 1 of 1008

VW Mk1 Golf by Solido

So as promised, here are two new additions to my collection that I have recently purchased at a local swop meet. Even though I have seen quite a few of these models at the swop meets, trade fairs and on line, they are becomeing relitevely hard to come by now. 

These two particular models are both in original boxes, although are showing signs of age with some creases and tears but in fair condition. The cars themselves are in very good condition with very minor wear. Overall a great addition to my collection.

Welcome to diecast GT

Hi and welcome to diecast GT. This blog is dedicated to my passion for collecting diecast model cars. Having started collecting in 1990 I have tried to limit my "addiction" to the hobby by collecting only VW Golfs as I have always had a passion for this vehicle. That said though, when I do see something else that draws my interest, I normally end up buying it as well.

Currently my collection is in South Africa in storage unfortunately due to recently relocating to the UK. However it has not been very long and I have already started a new collection here so watch this space!

Please take a look at some pics I took just before I left and let me know what you think. For all collectors in the UK I have also got a handy calendar page dedicated to diecast model and toy fairs in the UK which I regularly update as and when info becomes available.
