Here's a new offering by Minichamps, a 1:43 scale 1974 Monaco that is probably the nicest and most accurate Monaco offered in any scale. The detail is shocking for the size, even has separate pedals and floor mat detail. The pics tell the rest of the story:

AZB, Where'd you find the gold one? The only colors I see anywhere are green and blue. Are there any other colors available?
I found it on ebay, it was brand new without a box, and came from Taiwan. Probably plucked from the assembly line. Dated 2012, so it will probably be more common in the coming weeks/months. The seller had just the gold one, I don't know what other colors are planned.
Here's some pics from the photoshoot with MiniChamps, this is Rainer Vossen from Mini Champs taking close-up pics. He also sent me some of his pics but they're on the computer that's broken atm. He also did shots from about 100ft away to avoid lens distortion with a huge scale stick.
Here's pics of my emblem and hubcap. As far as I remember the hub caps with the red line are police-specific.
hmm, I just noticed the items on the dash in the fire chief model... Looks very familiar... Would like to see close-ups... Map light looks just like mine as installed by Dave Arnold. That hat looks just like the one I have in my car at exactly this place... ...and... uhm, gun? In a fire chief car?
