Corvair Dicast

 It appears to me that "American Excellence" does not manufacture models.

They purchase from other manufacturers and mark them up and re-sell

The Greenbrier and Rampside are made by Neo and can be found on ebay for


Next coming from Neo is a Corvan

Subject: <VV> O Scale Corvair Models I Had Not Seen


In my other life, I collect old toy trains.  I'm building a 24 x 32' 

layout on the 3rd floor of our house this winter.  Someday I'll post 

links to a website showing it finished.  I'll likely meet up with the 

Grim Reaper later that same day, but that's another story.

There's a thread on an O Scale toy train list right now concerning good 

sources of O Scale cars (approx 1/48).  People were recommending 

"American Excellence".  I had never heard of them so I browsed their 

site and was astonished to see 7,000 different models available.

MANY OF THESE ARE EXPENSIVE, particular for a skin-flint Corvair owner, 

but look at these:

Corsa Coupe:



Monza Convertible:

On the last one, it looks to me like someone named "Lucky Die Cast" 

bought the old Yat Ming dies.

The first 3 are too rich for my blood, but perhaps the prices will drop 

over time.  I wasn't aware they were even out there.

Some of their other non-Corvair offerings are amazing.  Enjoy.
