i was jsut checking out the driver gear site and i noticed that they have a scale model section. now i realize that the golf and GTI get no respect in the toy/model world. they are virtually unrepresented in the entire "import tuner toy" market. but even VW doenst' have a model of a golf or gti.
i mean, they have touregs, phaeton, a billion betles, even a jeeta WE. but not one GTI. surely they realize that Golf owners are usually fanatical about their cars. so come on, get with it. someody make some toys or models.

Re: What's with Driver Gear!!! No Golf or GTI scale models! (gravitymachine)

I thought I've seen die cast of Golfs and GTIs in driver's gear before (but yes, I noticed they didn't have any GTI or Golf scale model in their current Driver Gear magazine). In any case, there are tons of Golf and GTI models out there ranging from 1:87 -1:18 scale (from plastic moldings to diecast, from MKI to MKV).
Here's one of my favorite 1:18 diecast owned and modified by TrBOGTi http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif :
1.8T swap

FMIC, modiefied bumper, joey modded headlights

Black Wheels, with porsche cross drilled brakes.


1:18 Revell GTI owned by YellowDieselGolf http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif (I also own one of these diecast in black):


Here are some of the sites where you can get these or other VWs diecast

i am currently working on a Tamiya Golf v5 1:24 scale model, it will have a few mods with the likes of OZ rims from a subaru WRC (painted silver) and maybe the brakes.
I would love a diecast golf, may have to get dad to get one next time he goes to Germany for busines

Re: (keewee)

Sweet project http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Gravity machine: I agree the smaller/Matchbox scale ( ie. 1:87 scale, etc.) are a bit harder to find. The last GTI matchbox I've seen and have was that of the MKII, when Mathbox produced them in the late 80s to early 90s (give or take). I'll let you know though, if I come across any GTI matchbox, I always check the local hobby stores. Also keep an eye on the die cast forum section, lots of helpful infor there too http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
