Dacia 1304 pick-up 1:43 £6.99
The Renault 12-based Dacia 1304 pick-up was a common vehicle in Romania up to the mid-1990s and enjoyed some sales in the UK, yet it’s an unlikely candidate for scale-model immortality. Much of the detail work is pleasing for a 1:43 scale model at this price, with clear-lensed tail-lights, crisp mirrors and some attractive underside features. However, this is the first Altaya casting we’ve seen that falls short, with the review sample having a clear dip in the bonnet above the base mount post, and some of the detail work poorly applied. Nevertheless, the low price point and working-vehicle nature of the model have a certain appeal.
