Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - Mur­ray Scul­lion

This de­light­fully off-beat model from the Ox­ford Au­to­mo­bile Com­pany is part of its Ar­rive in Style range, which fea­tures the rarer mar­ques. This lovely light blue Messer­schmitt is priced at £28.95, which makes it one of the most ex­pen­sive items in Ox­ford Diecast’s range. The model’s crown­ing achieve­ment how­ever, is the fact that its top opens to re­veal a sim­ple in­te­rior. The seats can be taken out, just like the real thing. The cy­cle­like steer­ing wheel moves but isn’t con­nected to the wheels.

The in­te­rior isn’t hugely de­tailed, but the ex­te­rior makes up for it. The chrome plat­ing de­tail looks good against the paint­work, and the num­ber­plates are a nice touch. With full-size Messer­schmitt KR200s start­ing from £20,000, they’re now out of the reach of many. This model might just keep you sat­is­fied if the real thing is be­yond your means.
