Sometimes I find myself finding hidden gems among my undisplayed items. This is a common problem for collectors like myself who are perennially running out of display space. This is further compounded by the propensity to acquire some models, sight unseen, usually by way of trade or even outright sale.
This is why lately, I have had several pleasant surprises upon opening some boxes and being able to check the model in closer detail and in daylight so to speak.
One prime example is the 1957 Lincoln Premiere by Sunstar Platinum. This is a 1/18 model by the well known company Sunstar. The difference from the regular lineup is that the Platinum series is exceptionally well detailed and it seems that the paint as well is a notch higher than the regular series. The paint has a deep shine to it and its almost like the show quality paint job that is normally seen in Auto shows.
As mentioned, I had several surprises recently and I will be posting the others in this blog over the next couple of days.
In the meantime here is the 57 Lincoln Premiere. A hidden gem.
