In the original, the spare tyre is not sitting that high!

Hi,

It's a very nice model although there might be some details not that precise as on the original car.
Apart from the spare wheel I guess that the upper profile of the engine hood is too much rounded but probably this model was copied of pictures.
I would really appreciate if they were also making a model of 57158.
I could provide all sizes and detail pictures as well. :wink:

There have been several instances where enthousiasts or owners guided a producer of models in making a scale model of an existing car.

The type 101 by MaCol jumps into my mind, where Gerrit Bus send a lot of pictures.

I suggest contacting Chromes or Macol for a similar venture.

Hi,

I tried to contact Chromes but I didn't get an answer.
I was talking to the owner of Tin Wizard about 2 years ago. He was willing to run a small production but in order to end up at a reasonable piece price a batch of about 40 models would have been needed and I understood that I would need to buy that whole batch.
I would maybe need 2 or even 3 models but I'm not a model dealer or so.

So, any suggestion is welcome if someone knows a company that is able (and willing) to produce a high quality model of 57158.
I can provide all necessary measures as well as all detail pictures, outside, inside, top and below. :wink:

Try MA Collection, or Christian Gouel.

Hi,

Thanks a lot for the hint.
I'll try to contact them however it would have been a less difficult job for Chromes as they already have the convertible ready and both cars have a lot in common.
