Motorart Volvo DR 631

Post #1 by niner » Sun Nov 29, 2015 3:02 pm

I was on the fence about buying this, mainly because I was skeptical about Motorarts recent track record of quality and detail. The price was also a factor, it was listed in the UK to but at over £130 but then I found it on VOLVOs merchandise site for around £70.

I'm glad i did get it in the end, it's a nice little model with opening engine covers and some crisp detail. The dump body tips nice but the articulatio point is very limited. I'm not bothered about that because it will just sit on display.

Some photos.

I paid £78 direct from Volvo compared to the £130 price tag at John Ayrey's. I wouldn't have paid the £130, and to be fair £78 was the limit for me. You pay for the nice wooden box it comes in I think.
