Audi TT Coupe (Welly 1:24)
A friend needed this Audi to be built quickly so it could be given as a gift. It turned into a very quick New Years Day build!
She’d purchased the kit from an Aldi supermarket about a year ago where it carried a RRP of under $10. It’s made by the Hong Kong based Welly Diecast Company in 1:24 scale.
The metal body is already painted, as is the detail on many of the plastic parts. The kit only required assembly.
This is a basic budget model that offers outstanding value. It’s certainly no Exoto-like scale replica, but man, it was under ten bucks!
The only additional cost is glue – no paints required (unless you wanted to pick out further detail, or do some type of custom job).
I can’t give this a Wixy500 rating because I’ve no idea about production numbers to rate it’s collectibility (plus, I’m not in the habit of rating kits).
But if I was to rate it, it would go something like this:
wixy500 rating (out of 5):
- Collectability – no idea
- Finish – 4.0
- Accuracy – 3.3
- Value – 4.8 (a solid 1/24 scale diecast with opening parts for under $10)
- Overall – n/a
Quick Build: Dale Earnhardt NASCAR by Revell
Scott McLaughlin punting around the Gold Coast track giving a demo of Joey Logano’s NASCAR this weekend reminded me I have a handful of NASCAR kits in the stash, including this “Pro Finish” Snap Tite example of Dale Earnhardt’s Goodwrench #3 Chevy from 2000.
