Hi,

I was looking at the ninco Megan trophy as I love the look of the car and believe the only two companies currently making this are Ninco and SCX, not being a fan of the guide on the SCX I started looking at the ninco.

It's been a few years since I brought a ninco as their price hikes put me off when the started charging the same for a ninco1 as I could buy a detailed car from Scalextric.

Anyway, back the the Megan trophy.

As far as I can see the is the ninco1 versions and the lightened versions, both of these are fair enough for what they are aimed at and honestly I love the wheels on the lightened version but I was looking for a high detail with interior.

Looking further at ninco's range I can't seem to find many cars that are not either often two types mentioned above.

Am I missing something here?

Thanks

Colin

I was lead to believe that the Lightning version do have interiors. But the windows are dark tinted rather than the solid black of the Ninco1 range.

Embed,

I was looks at a few at the last big swap meet, they are VERY dark, I certainly could not see inside. The interior is also a lean (found this out after writing the question) so still not the detailed interior I was after. The lightened ones are also race speced and priced accordingly, if I was buying just one then I would think about it but none of my trends want to buy one so if I want to race tem as a class I need to buy at least three.

Don't you just love auto correct?


I just had a look at all my usual domestic sources and there's no standard Ninco Meganes left here either. Seems like there were heaps of them not long ago. Now there are none.

You didn't miss it, most of the releases from Ninco are either Ninco1 or lightened cars. From time to time, they still make a detailed one though. The classics are also always detailed.

No detailed livery of the latest Megane was ever done.

I am like you, I prefer detailed interior ones and I am really deeply unhappy by Ninco's policy.

Well I stopped looking at ninco due to the price of their version of the Scalextric super ressitant, £21 i can except but they are just being reduculous.

Ah well, I will cross ninco off my list again, does anyone have a way of improving the guide on the SCX cars so it doesn't spin and jam othe two sprung bits of metal.

Message to Scalextric or carrera.

Please make a version of this car.
