Hi, my son wants to get me a 1:18 scale model for Xmas but can't seem to find a vx220 one, they all seem to be the opel speedster. Any ideas on where one can be sourced, or if there is one available.
Thanks

Yeh, he was asking about 1:18 Ken, presumably the Maisto one.

Yeah I know that Lee. I was just pointing out that the only VX specific model of any size I've ever come across is the 1:32 scale FastLane one

The 1:18 model was only made as a 2.2 atmo Speedster, not as a VX220 or even a Turbo Speedster.

Cheers guys, done quite a bit of researching and can't find any .
A speedster it will have to be,
Maybe with a bit of alteration it could become a vx though. 🤔

See if you can find a vauxhall model that you can whip the V and back logo from, and try to get that on a speedster model.

The steering wheel will be a bit of a hack job.
