Some of you might already have some scale model Saabs. Personally speaking, I’v e got a dozen models at my office in 1:43 scale, most of which come from the Saab Expressions catalogue. They range from UrSaab right through to the Aero-X and there’s even a 9-7x amongst them!
Last week I heard about a site featuring Saab model cars that absolutely knocked my socks off!
It’s called Dimini.ch and is run by a couple of Saab nuts who are avid collectors of Saabs, both full size and scale models.
Here’s a sample. Click to enlarge.
And one of my personal favourites – a two-door Saab 99 Turbo:
Dimini.ch is a partnership between a couple of guys from Switzerland – Dmitri and Frederic. Between them they own a collection of 13 classic Saabs as well as a few other distinct Europeans.
Here’s a quick message about Dimini.ch from Dmitri:
Since forever, I’ve been a car and a model car collector, fascinated by the automobile and especially Swedish cars. I was frustrated not to be able to combine my passions because Swedish cars and more particularly Saabs are not easy to find as model cars.
In my professional career, I have been working more than 10 years in the world of model cars. Because of this, I now have all the necessary connections to begin the sale of these model cars in order to fill this void for collectors.
The online shop at www.dimini.ch is now open and it offers to all the collectors and model cars fans, especially Saab, Volvo, Valmet, Scania and other Scandinavian brands, a wide choice of models that were previously difficult to find.
Do not hesitate to visit our site and ask for the models you are looking for, and please send us your comments so that we can continue to improve our offering.
Those of you who like to collect scale model Saabs ought to bookmark that site as I have a feeling it’s going to be a great resource for Saab collectors.
