Back to the 190 and 190D modelcars
Brekina 190

Founded in 1979, Brekina started production of their detailed 1/87 oldtimer models in 1980. According to Brekina, the 'Brekina' name comes from BREisgau (place where the company is seated), KInzigtal (place where the models were made) and NAturgetreu (accurate), but it can hardly be coincidental that the companyname can als be made from the first letters of the founders names, BReitenbach, KIessling and NAnn.

The 190 types and 200 types are easily found, they were made in large numbers in different editions, colours, prints etc. etc. Personally I think it must be almost impossible to collect all of the Brekina models but that's part of the fun of collecting isn't it?

Below you can see the attention of detail displayed in two, on first glance, similar models. On the left you can clearly see the '190D' on the car while on the right the car is a '190'. Another difference is that both models have got different number plates as well, and all this in scale 1:87 !

Below here another colour variation of the Brekina model, this time in its original, garage like, box.
