|MC Toy - Peugeot 205GTI  and MC Toy - Peugeot 309 |
No matter what, MC Toy managed to produce quite nice models, The Citroën is probably not as nice as the model made by Guisval, but the 205 is clearly much better. The 309 instead, is a model that to my knowledge was never reproduced by any other brand… what makes it a very interesting piece.
|MC Toy - Citroen 2CV |
The 405 Turbo is a car that due to its participation in the Paris-Dakar rally became very popular those years. Majorette manufactured it in yellow with many tampographies, and it looked great, with that impressive spoiler, and extra high wheels. This version is not as accurate as the Majorette version, because it features a white model, but it is still a very nice collection piece. The tampographies are not among the best by MC Toys, but they are still nice examples of what they were doing by the early 90s.
Poliguri also made this car in 1:64 scale. See entry #132.
