Altaya Collection

Post  Marty B on Mon Jan 17, 2011 8:43 am

Hi folks, you may not have heard of these, but they are a manufacturer of 1/43 scale cars & vans, that were sold overseas as part of magazine partworks. i have a few from this manufacturer, and all were picked up for under £10, and are often re boxed IXO models. I have such delights as a Talbot Samba cabrio, Mk1 Renault 5, Talbot Horizon, & Seat 124 police car (Lada 1200 lookalike). Photos to follow when I get round to unpacking them. Images of the Seat 124 and Talbot Horizon can be found in the new Emergency Services Models topic

Renault 5 mk1

Post  Marty B on Mon Jan 17, 2011 10:49 am



I picked this Altaya Renault 5 up for the bargain price of £2, yes 2 QUID!!. Got to be a bargain. Detail on it is fantastic for the money, with a fully printed interior and dashboard, and detailed chassis. Only downside I would say is the rear lights are tampo print, but for the money, well I certainly aren't going to quibble the price.

Altaya Renault 9 saloon

Post  Marty B on Mon Jan 24, 2011 8:30 am

Not sure which Altaya range this comes from, but I like it anyway. When launched , the Renault 9 was European Car Of The Year.Must have been a quiet year for new cars LOLOL. Anyhow, its a pretty decent effort by Altaya to represent the 9, complete with period French numberplates.

Hi Marty,

I love the Altaya range as you get so much model for your money. I bought these two 1:43 trucks from a dealer in France.

Volvo

Berliet


I don't think they were imported into the UK but they are great models and 1:43 which is very nice.

Cheers,

Kris.

Altaya Peugeot J5 van

Post  Marty B on Sun Feb 06, 2011 7:53 am

Something a little different from Altaya. Seen one of these on ebay recently, and it really caught my eye. Saw one on a stall today I thought 'I'm having it'. I think it is a Tour De France support van from the 1980s. You may recognise the van shape as the Talbot Express/Citroen C25/Fiat Ducato mk1. Was the reasonable price of £7.95.

I've been looking on e-bay, and the price of Altayas is creeping upwards, plus there seems to be less and less. This stall didn't have that many to choose from to be honest, but at a fiver a pop, well.. Sadly the Toyfair its self only had about 20 stalls. Was much smaller than last time, and I was in and out in less than half an hour.

A couple of photos of the Peugeot 504 I picked up. I'm sure the badge on the back says injection.

One of my purchases from last year, from the Altaya collection, a Seat Ibiza GLX, which is from the same era as the Malaga, and was one of the cars that was used to launch the brand here in the UK.

Love the 144. We had one in the late 70s early 80s so I must get hold of that.

I got the Volvo from Digbys. and it was the last they had. I've already seen it on ebay for well over £8 more than what I paid.

Thanks for the site address.
Nice idea while it lasted... However, I think I have most of the ones I would want already, which is nice.

If they'd publicised it, well maybe more of us would have heard about it, and more copies sold!

Another Altaya arrived in the post this morning, this time a Talbot Alpine 1600 SX, which is RIGHT HAND DRIVE Laughing

It has one or 2 little paint faults, like over painting the roof on the d pillar on the nearside, but with a bit of care & nail varnish remover...





And with it's saloon brother, with all the blurb in French. Note it says the Alpine is a 3 speed auto.
