Magnus Walker

Magnus Walker
There is no doubt that Magnus Walker is a truly peculiar person. We met him a while ago at a car event, we took some selfies and chatted briefly. And what is the misfortune of poor Magnus Walker? Well, he likes cars, especially Porsches, like many of us. He owns quite a nice collection of them BUT...

...poor Magnus found out that the collection of cars we have is SO much bigger than his, and that made him very envious, he can't sleep well at night and he does not even feel like shaving XD. Of course we didn't tell him that our car collection is in 1/12, 1/20 and 1/43 scale... shhhhhhh :)

Joking aside, if you feel sympathy for this quirky motor collector, you can purchase a new 1/43 scale Magnus Walker figure from DAB Models (hey, it comes unpainted) that you can pre-order now at SpotModel.

So you can have fun yourself painting Magnus while the poor guy have to spend many hours cleaning his 1:1 scale cars :)
