Ok, I have been in contact with 1 Series M Coupe (Max) over on the 1erforum.de He works for Minichamps and is making the models(in his free time). He proposed to me that take the 1Addicts orders and collect the money via paypal. Then I will place the order with Max. He will ship the models to my German haus address and then I can mail them out to the US via my APO. I am not looking to make any money here. Just to provide you guys with the models.

The models cost about 47 euros(plus shipping to my haus in Germany) plus a few euros extra for each option you wish to have. I will have to find out how much it will cost me to mail each model out as well. It should not be more than $35, I would think(to US/Canada). But I have to check.

The mods he can do are:

rim colors: silver, black or gunmetal
window frames: chrome or shadow line
side turn signals: chrome or shadow (on fender)
BMW front air intake grills: chrome trim or shadow trim
Individual license plates, but I would need a photo (I am checking IF he can do US style plates. ???)
mirror: either body color or carbon fiber(CF)
rear spoiler: either carbon fiber or just black or in body color,

So... what do you guys think? I also have to find out the time frame. But I think deliveries will be in a few months. I am waiting to hear back. I believe Max is doing this in his free time - so it will take some time. The 1erforum guys are going nuts placing their orders.

re: 1M model 1:43...

Another UPDATE...

I have been talking with 1 Series M Coupe about how this is gonna work for us 1Addicts. Once you guys decide on your model, with options and you send me the money - I will forward your order to him.

The finished model will be shipped out my German house around August of this year. So far he has 50 model orders as of today.

1 Series M Coupe can also do non standard colors too. But that costs an extra 135 EUR + the model cost and options. Here is what he wrote to me...

..."I can do any color you want, but I would need to know the name of the paint, e.g. Valencia Orange, then I can check the color code. Repainting the body of one model costs € 135, since we need to disassemble the whole model!"

So... who wants a 1:43 scale 1M model and with which options. ?

He thinks he can make US style lic plates, but he will need a picture of your tag.

An European Delivery (German tourist plate) license plate was already requested, so if you want your ED plates, just refer to my username for picture reference.

How to order a 1M custom model in 1:43 scale...

Name:  Minichamps 1er M Cpupe model.jpg
Views: 3286
Size:  28.0 KB

Basic 1M Coupe model in 1:43rd scale : $68
(PLUS car model options bellow plus shipping to USA!)

rim color silver or black: $6
rim color that is neither black nor silver $7
side window frame shadow or chrome: $6
License plate $3 (standard German license plate that is already on the model, which is AC TN 1 on AW models the tag is: LDK-LT 340)
carbon fiber trunk spoiler: $6 (standard is matt black spoiler, no body color spoiler is available nor is a spoiler delete, you have to choose either matt black or CF)
carbon fiber mirrors : $4
side turn signal chrome or gloss black: $4
front air intake shadow line black or chrome finish: $6
carbon fiber roof look or flat matt roof $21


Other special requests such as special exterior colors are also possible. But please PM me so I can find out the cost.


IF you WANT a model… please send me a PM, with which color and options you would like. IF you want a custom license plate – you will need to send me a picture of your tag. He can also make ED tags just send me your info or a photo.


When you place your order with me – I will give you my paypal address. You pay me in USd and I will send the money onto Max. He will ship the model to me and I will ship them to you. I think a charge of $35 for shipping should cover shipping both ways.


I am not looking to make any money off of this. But I do not want to lose any money either with the euro conversion or with the shipping costs (to and from me) and bank wiring fees. Therefore I erred on a slightly high USd to Euro rate. Hopefully I don’t get burned by the exchange rates fluctuations.


1M 1:43rd scale model delivers are looking like sometime in August of this year - at the soonest! You pay now and wait(patiently). Send me a PM for any questions or for your order.

Dackel


PS: IF you want me to send you an invoice via paypal I will have to add +3%. It would beter/easier just to send me the money via paypal as a gift. IF yopu have a problem with that... I can send you an invoice just add 3% to the price.

Hi Dackel,

If I don't choose the carbon spoiler, would it come with the standard LIP spoiler like the real 1M? Seems like everthing is options, this feel like buying the 1M all over again LOL.

I didnt see it mentioned so I wanted to add...

These customizations are coming from units in the general allocation so your personal car will still be numbered out of xxx of total production.

Total units of 1008 for VO and 528 each for BSM, AW, and Green.

Arrow Ordering UPDATE: 1M models... 1:43 scale

UPDATE: As promised here is the new info I mentioned earlier. I have been exchanging emails (back and forth) with the 1M model maker. Here is the new info I have…

MINCHAMPS will be selling FOUR color 1M’s in the following limited edition numbered model run. Each model will say “1 of ___pcs” (not numbered sequentially!)


Orange (VO): 1008 total
Black (BSM) 528 total
White (AW) 528 total
Green (Momba): 528 total


standard model specs: (for $68)

orange: silver rims, chromline, carbon fiber mirrors, carbon fiber spoiler, silver grill, silver side turn signals

black: silver rims, chromline, body color mirrors, no spoiler, silver grill, silver side turn signals

white: black rims, shadowline, body color mirrors, carbon fiber spoiler, silver grill, silver side turn signals

green: black rims, shadowline, body color mirrors, no spoiler, black grill, black side turn signals




I got this email from Max the model maker....

If your 1Addicts friends/ contacts order the models as they are described above, the cost is only $68 without shipping, but any change has the separate costs that I mentioned before in the option list..

As of yesterday Minichamps can also do black grills and black side marker turn signals.

The side turn signals cost $6 and the black grills $8 (since I need to take of the chassis from the body in order to switch the BMW grill and that takes some work),
Yes, we can do a matt roof and the price will be $21

IF you want your 1M model to be of a special different color than those four production colors, they can also paint the model to a custom color. They only will need a BMW paint code. BUT it is not cheap. The special painting option will costs $190 PLUS the model PLUS any options. The reason why it is so much is bc of the labor involved in dissembling the entire model and painting it. Lots of detailed work is needed for this paint job.


Again, there are already some fifty plus ordered already on the books. So any models order thru me with be delivered to my house sometime in mid August. As soon as I get the finished model, I will ship them out – in the order they come in to me.

I do not have any trouble shipping to other countries(besides the US and Canada) – as some have asked me. But I will most likely need to go thru the German Post(mail) over here… and tthat will not be cheap. I have to see what that will cost.

The shipping costs is the biggest unknown to me. For orders to the US and Canada… I do not think the shipping costs will be that much. I think the $35 I stated before should cover both the shipping from Minichamps to me and from me to the end buyer in the states. But for other international orders… I really have no idea on the end cost. SO as long as you are flexible on that… we can proceed.

I think you guys all know me by now. I am not looking to make a buck here. Just to cover my expenses and not end up paying for someone else’s model(s).

So… if you want to place an order… send me a PM and I will send you my paypal info.

I think $35 USd should cover the postage all around. IF it will cost more, I will notify you before your model ships.


Basic 1M Coupe model in 1:43rd scale : $68
(PLUS car model options bellow plus shipping to USA!)

rim color silver or black: $6
rim color that is neither black nor silver $7
side window frame shadow or chrome: $6
License plate $3
carbon fibre spoiler: $6
carbon fiber mirrors : $4
side turn signal chrome or gloss black: $4
front air intake shadow line black or chrome finish: $6
carbon fiber roof look $21

Further to my Matchbox post (http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showp...&postcount=144), forum fellow elitt113 got us these fresh 1M Matchbox pictures. It seem that Mattel decided to take the 1M design to the next level of sturdiness - with this tire size (310?), it will regularly need new fender liners due to some serious rubbing.

And the Matchbox product code is MB111 ...just a couple of "1" figures, what else did you expect ?

I'm pretty sure Matchbox modelled that on my car given the chronic rubbing problems I have!!!
