I believe some of the earlier Kyoshos were like that. IMO the sidewall is a bit too thick as well - something I've also noticed in their W211 E Class.

I think the reason why the X5 stands out is because the (huge)H1 seems to be the same size as the X5... when in fact it should be quite a bit bigger. The H1 is a Maisto I presume, and since Maisto scales there models more to fit their boxes, it tends to be a wee bit inaccurate for the large vehicles. The H1 from Maisto does measure up a little smaller when compared to the H1 from Exoto & HMMWV from MotorMax. I think the Maisto H1 is probably a 1:17 or 1:16.

Ya, the H1 is 1:18 Maisto and it is more or less similar to size to the 1:18 X5. Will click both of them side by side when time permeits!

You guys mean 1:20. 1:17 or 1:16 would make the car bigger, not smaller. The Hummer from Maisto is usually 1:26 scaled as compared to the usual 1:24 scale. That I know for sure. And as for the 1:18, I think it is a 1:20.

You are right... my bad. It must be 1:19 or 1:20... the 1:24 series becomes 1:26 and 1:27. I even have a Ford Police Interceptor which is 1:27
