Post by: RazorbackNOR on November 03, 2011, 08:35:32 am
I was at a car-convention close to Oslo this weekend, loads of car, equipment and everything one could ever want, HUGE lack of Matras thou....

What I managed to find, among the modelcar stands were these two:

Visit Le Mans in June and you'll be able to get all the Matra models you'd ever want :)

Kind of a long trip for some models thou...

Have you seen Murenas in some of the larger scales like 1:24 or 1:18?

I know Simon sells a plastic modell set, unsure about the size of that one

The only Murena models out there are 1:43, like the Baghera on top in your photo.
I thought of buyin one, but think 1:43 is too small. I would want at least 1:24.

A 1:43 modell car is small but looks good on the shelf. :)
I bought a platine Murena modell on ebay, I like it. And I could not stop so I had to buy a 1:1...  ;D

The racing transporter is cool!

I bought mine from this seller. He was correct.
Check the prices because they can be varied on ebay. But if I remember well, this seller was the cheapest.

My Matra collection some are resin kits that I built, some are finished models.

I've also got some Matra 1:43 kits that I've not built yet.

When I started collecting, the only Murena model was this (and variations of it):
(http://inlinethumb30.webshots.com/41245/2482853590103429640S600x600Q85.jpg)

I bought some to modify.

Got as far as this with my conversion (which was already a lot of work):
(http://inlinethumb59.webshots.com/46202/2791266220103429640S600x600Q85.jpg)

I was very pleased that, finally, a good scale model was available.  But it is such a pity that the Ixo 1:43 model's rims even though they are very nicely reproduced look like 17"

I would LOVE a 1:18 Murena keep hoping that it will appear one day.

As mentioned elsewhere, there is now a 1:18 Murena  ;D ;D ;D
thought it should be mentioned here to keep this thread useful for people who search for Matra models.
