#609 GUISVAL FURIA - BMW 325i and FORD SIERRA (1986), FERRARI F40 and PORSCHE 959 (1986 and 1988)


Guisval series in 1:43 scale ("Furia" series) was already commented in entry #223. A lot of information can be found there. This entry shows a few more models which were released a few years later than those first ones.


The casts are less detailed than those older models, as well as the overall quality, which is slightly worse. This is most remarkable in the tampographies: the older models had great tampographies, but these are decorated with stickers or bad quality tampographies, probably the first (or among the first) used by Guisval, and thus, not yet quite mastered.



This series had two different types of cars, first row of more usual berlinas, then a row of sports cars.

1: Available in two decorations: "plain" and with rally decorations.
  • BMW 325i
  • Ford Sierra
  • Seat Ronda
  • Mercedes 500 SEC
  • Nissan Patrol (not exactly 1:43)
  • Renault Espace (not exactly 1:43)


2:
  • Ferrari F40
  • Ferrari Testarossa
  • Porsche 959


UPDATE 1 (May/2017) Added Ford Sierra NASA. Curious stickers from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Some Sierra models came with a black plastic spoiler, other did not.
