This is my first IXO Diecast and I can tell it will not be my last. The detail is magnificent and, aside from a few obvious production flaws, build quality is pretty awesome for the price.
I’ve wanted one of these for a long time. But, since it is uncommon to find these in the United States, I really didn’t want to spend the average $15+international shipping charges to get one. Imagine my delight when I spotted an sinBay US seller less than a few hundred miles from my home. With a buy-it-now of only $5, I knew this elusive Volga would finally be mine.
But wait! The seller had multiple IXO Gaz ‘casts available for $5 ea. A quick message pleading for combined shipping led me to purchase several. Great transaction overall.
This Gaz is the one I wanted the most. Such a unique Russian vehicle with terrific styling lines and amazing colors. This 1:43 scale car does not disappoint. Amazing details like the hood ornament, mirrors, wipers, interior mirror, plates, emblems, etc etc. I am sooo in love.
My only gripes are that the interior is completely black which makes it hard to see the great detail they put into the design interior-wise. The signal lamps were put on the car by a drunk ape with mittens on and the hood ornament isn’t 100% straight.
All in all, I am definitely going to pick up more IXO diecasts. This one has me totally sold on their quality. If I can find more good deals on these, my collection will definitely grow.
What are your favorite IXO ‘casts that have been produced?
