Price Vs Quality

It’s the big issue when collecting models – the good stuff costs more… has published a decent comparison pitching three popular 1/43 scale manufactures against each other – Spark, Minichamps and Bburago. The article uses each company’s rendition of the 2022 McLaren MCL36 for the comparison.

As the article concludes, the quality and detail that Spark and Minichamps now offer was not available 30 years ago, unless you went for something like an expensive hand built Tameo kit.

Bburago keep improving, but are still well behind the other two. Spark and Minichamps each have their pros and cons, but with a slightly better price point, it’s usually Spark that wins me over.

What do you think?
