  • 20 Years ago

    Hi folks, I have not posted for a little while but I guess that a special milestone has arrived;

    It is hard to believe that the first Biante 1:18 produced has just passed 20 years old , prior to these models coming out all I purchased was 1/43 scale cars. These models changed the way I collected and have been very influential.

    I thought that after 20 years I can review the stats that I have;



    July 1998 :
    #22721 - 1:18 Ford XY Falcon GTHO - Track Red - 5,000 pcs in window box.
    All of these models have external mirrors on both front doors.
    This is the first ever 1:18 scale diecast model of an Australian car.



    Current value last 10 average is $327


    2017 = $330
    2016 = $286
    2015 = $354
    2014 = $366
    2013 = $379

    Hard to believe that it's 20 years since it all started. Whilst my first 1/18 was the March 17th green LJ, they were preceded by some cc v8 supercars in 1/43
