FM models are much more detailed than Minichamps but AA is as good in detailing as FM since they do 1:18 against FM's 1:24.

But where FM is different from AA is the build.Both my FM models are very heavy and very very rugged in its built compared to other manufacturers ( I only own Minichamps, AA, Yatming ...).

My 1:24 FM is as heavy as 1:18 AA MB600 Pullman LWB. But if you look at the VFM factor versus the build & detailing , my choice would be Minichamps.

P.S: I would love to own the Red VW Porsche van by Schuco but the price is ~ 8000 -12000 INR

Is the Discovery made of plastic or diecast? How much do these cost?
