Need some help for die cast models...



Alright, so as of now i'm looking for some 1:18 die cast models made by UT models, Autoart or anything else that looks high quality, prefably pre-assembled.

I need to find the E36 M3 sedan and coupe, the Mcoupe, the E46 M3 and E30 M3 if there ever was one made for model cars.

I've tried First Hand Distributors near yorkdale shopping centre on dufferin. I know pacific mall has some, but I'm wonder if there are any other stores that carry those, if not any model cars for good deals?
In toronto plz, hee...

Hey Mike, I got some nice ones from Burago when I was in Europe. I think mine are 1:24 though, but still looks sweet. I got the M3 LWT E36, Team Schnitzer 318, M3 DTM E36, 320 Race car and a 318 race car. I'm sure they sell these in Toronto, try Pacific mall, I've seen many nice die cast models there of BMW's.

Oh yeah, and as for the E30 M3's? Forget about finding any die cast models of those, they are non existant. I don't know why, I'm sure they would sell in a jiffy..

Best thing to do is ask Randy when he gets back. He's got loads of that stuff.

Check at the following site.... Scale18.com. They are located out of Vancouver and the prices are pretty good too. I've purchased about 30 die-cast cars from them (all Corvettes) and they they are very good to deal with. They've got M3 GTR's, M3 convertables, M3 coupes and M3 sedans. All the models are 1:18 scale.

Eaton Center

There is a model car stall shop on the upper level of Eaton Centre in the middle of the mall closer to Queen st. They constantly get new cars amlost daily but can order specific cars you request. I saw a nice violet M3 last week in 1:24 scale.

Die Cast Dealer

Try Designs in Motion. His web site address is http://www.designsinm.com/ Send him an email if you don't find what you want on the site. I've had good luck with him tracking stuff down for me. Plus he is real knowledgeable about the history of most cars street or track, cool guy. Please let him know I referred you if you contact him

Good Luck,
John Hoffner

UT Models are no more.

I went to Car Buffs in Square One Mall and they said UT is no longer available. So if you can find it...BUY IT!
