Yesterday I visited the Retro Málaga classic car show and there were some modelcars sellers. Mainly, in a 98%, their stock was modelcars from the different partwork collection sold in Spain and Europe, specially Salvat or Altaya. I returned to Cádiz, my home town, with this bunch...

JUNIO2021 RETROMALAGA

GMC 950 COE 'Pontiac Fleet Carrier Corp Michigan' by Altaya

Barreiros Saeta Furgón 'Spar' by Salvat

Both models are Ixo based but sold in their editorial labels.

Cheers

That's a great truck and a great series. Wish it were available in the US!

That COE GMC auto transporter is to die for.  Sure wish these start to show up available to US buyers.  I could see it loaded with my selection of 1952 Chevrolets.

@keko-romero If it's similar to this partwork, the entire trailer is plastic and the model was made in Bangladesh!

Keko,  I've found one of these transporters on a foreign site.  Just want to confirm before I take the plunge, is it truly 43 scale.   Thanks

 @mg-harv I also have this Unic truck and the GMC is different. Cabin and trailer are diecast. The parts where you put the cars are plastic. But all the coachwork is metal.

@john-quilter Yes it's 1/43, all models of that partwork are 1/43 and I only collect 1/43 scale. You have to know that the van is based in fact in a medium truck.
