I was thinking about getting a couple of 1/43 F1 cars from the 2003 season. I wanted McLaren, Williams and of course Ferrari. I came across the Minichamps for $35 ea (about 30 EUR). They look pretty good, are they? Is that a decent price?

Minichamps doesn't have the 1/43 2003 Ferrari but Mattel does with their Hot Wheels brand. Is this model of the same quality as the Minichamps? From the photos it looks like the Minichamps is better. Will it be noticeable having the Mattel one sitting next to the Minichamps?

If the Mattel one is just a toy or of poor quality then I probably won't get any of them. I am not going to display a McLaren and a Williams without a Ferrari!

I'll have to check BBR.
I did look at EBay today and wow there is quite a difference in price between the Mattel and the Minichamps. It was funny because I noticed some people bidding higher for the Minichamps models then the models sell for in the online store. Go figure.

Anyway, I bid on a Mattel 2002 Ferrari for $8 (plus $6 S&H), brand new, in the box. I figure for $14 I can check out the Mattel and if it is not "display quality", I can let my niece and my buddy's kids play with it when they come over.
