Hi everyone,

I´m considering to buy a few cars for the streets of Pulp City. Now I´m not sure which ones to choose.

1:55
1:50
1:48
1:43

I think 1:55 should fit the PC models the best, but I´m not sure at all. Thanks for your help.

I am thinking 1:43 but its hard here in New Zealand to find cheap vehicles...
No one stocks them so I have to try overseas but the freight makes it near impossible to do. I sort of baulk at the concept of paying more if not double the value of the items for postage. (Eg $10 car costs $20 to post ewwww)

I will keep on looking see what I can find.

Let us know where you get your cars from...

1:43 seems to be pretty big. Do you have any pics?

I use 1:43 as well and while it isn't perfect, it's good enough, especially since there's a surprisingly huge and affordable range of cars at that scale.

I have a sample picture although the car wasn't the focus on the shot. That said, it may be better than nothing.

I ordered two 1:43 cars and they arrived today. They fit really nicely to the PC Minis. Thanks for the help.

For players who want to order in Germany, I found a shop which has lots and lots of cars. Not cheap, but beautiful. :wink:

Model Car World has a really good selection of cars. He also sells some of them via Amazon Germany.
