After the warm welcome I received with my first post on that Bburago Range Rover, I decided to follow it up by the second package I received that week, this Welly 1:64 BMW 2002ti. I had planned to take care of that the week of receiving it, but you know...life...life’s a bitch, innit?
Basically, I bought this model for a number of reasons.
1. I wanted a classic BMW in my collection. Classic BMW models are not really a rarity, but it seems like ones under the 100 dollar mark are either crap or Hot Wheels, but then I found this on diecastmodelswholesale. It was perfect, everything seems nicely detailed and put together, so no real complaints on that part.
2. It’s a nearly perfect replica of a car that was once in my family. My mom is from Germany and I believe it was either her father or grandfather who owned a bright orange BMW Neue Klasse back in the early 70s while she was still over there. So that was another bonus.
But all in all, I really like this model. It has a sense of classic elegance to it, and like I said, details aren’t perfect, but there was a massive attempt. It’s given me an urge to follow it up with more classics here soon, so stay tuned for that. As always, let’s finish this with the photodump.
