The Lada Niva is a legend, always in production since 1977, after over forty years of service! This small Russian 4x4 made the history of off-road motoring and managed to maintain its leadership in international sales at least until the nineties. It was also one of the favorite cars of the Paris-Dakar drivers. As for the mechanical evolutions, a 5-speed gearbox came in 1985, a new 1700cc engine was introduced in 1993, injection in 1995 and power steering in 2006. A restyling was introduced in 1994.

SOLIDO

The Solido brand is one of the most important in the history of car modeling. Ferdinand de Vazelles of Nanterre (France) began producing die-cast models under the Solido brand in the early 1930s. The first creation was a Gergovia candle on wheels. Until the 1950s, Solido models were equipped with wind-up motors. In 1957 Solido introduced the 100 series with detailed 1:43 scale models, featuring several new gimmicks such as suspension and opening parts. In addition to contemporary vehicles, classic cars from the "L'age d'or" series were also reproduced from 1964. In addition to French production, Solido models were also made in Spain (Dalia), Brazil (Brosol) and Argentina (Buby) in the 1960s and 1970s. In 1980 Solido was taken over by Majorette and numerous other changes of ownership followed. From the 1980s onwards, reissues of old Solido models were released under the Verem brand. After the closure of the Oulins factory in 2006, all Solido models were produced in China. After Solido was taken over by Ottomobile in 2015, the company focused primarily on 1:18 scale die-cast models and moved production to the factory in Bangladesh. Since 2023, Solido has started to seriously invest in 1:43 again with a range of low-cost but excellent quality models.
