Leo models Maserati 200 SI

Just won this little gem, it's cool because it's a 4 cylinder, 1991 cc's, very pretty, only $12.27

First thought was it looked too short for a V-12.
So I figure 6cyl. But it would've hadda been a V-6 to fit the hood.
V-6s back then??? Not sure.
Yadda yadda, never knew about 4cyl Maseratis. Now I do!
Nice one ~

No Atlas, it's from Leo Models, though all these companies seem interchangable sometimes. I like Leo's because they do some obscure Maserati racers that I'm fond of and, those cool details like around the windscreen and side curtains.

I have seen Leo Models online in 1:24 - their Alfas look nice. But 1:43 though - a good find! They seem to be a small outfit - no website or anything? Is there an address on the box?

Yes! Beautiful little jewels.
Their degree of V-ness is very slight, not like a US V-8.
Very unique.

Hi karl, most of the Leo's I've bought have just come with the plastic display case and base, most with the nice photo of the 1:1 in the back, some without the photo. This 200 SI has the stats on the back of the photo. No address info. All are made in China.

I have some from awhile back that were on a plastic base with a blister over that and the car, no box, no info.

I did a search and found this lovely 450S with a plain box over the display case, it's from a seller I've bought from before, I asked for more info on Leo's, they always respond quickly and are a bit hard to understand with the language barrier



I have one almost exactly like this from another company, I'm curious to see what they say, my guess is Leo is a sub company making lower cost models of the higher priced better known, and some nice obscure ones of their own. Just my guess.

I saw what you mean about the larger 1/24 Alfa's Very nice!! I might have to grab a few!!

Hey MFR, think about a sub forum in the buying online forum for recommending overseas sellers with a good track record?

We are still negotiating the change over with VS_Adm, but there will still be a sticky for good sales in the final forum set up. It is currently in the swap & sell one. It is not specific to overseas sellers, but they can certainly be added (noted) there.

If they are a commercial vendor they can also sign up with VS_Adm to sponsor one of the diecast sections that is open.

That is most awesome news MFR! As a community we need something like this, I'll contact my favorite sellers and see if they can get interested in this for new sales and hopefully pony up to sponsor

karl S, still waiting to hear from my friends in China, I did find this info on Leo Models, not much really, www.Leomodels.it - Leomodels | Website, maybe some of our members in Italy can chime in?

I have a couple more Leo Maserati models I won to post up soon, and a couple Altaya's too
