Vagabund and Solido Team Up to Release a 1:18 Scale Model of the V-Lada

Solido has been crafting meticulous models of iconic automobiles dating back to 1930, but its early-century spawn doesn’t mean it sticks to keeping things old-fashioned. In collaboration with Vagabund Moto, the collectible manufacturer has unveiled a 1:18 scale take on the latter’s iconic V-Lada 4×4 build.

Serving as an authentic tribute in every which way, this metal-bodied model comes equipped with front doors that open, as well as a movable steering wheel and a quartet of tires. Measuring over 7 inches long, roughly 4 inches wide, and over 4 inches high, this two-and-a-half-pound keepsake impressively evokes every element of the Austrian moto outfit’s full-body rendition, which was based on a 2007 Russian-made Lada Niva and was Vagabund’s first-ever four-wheel build.

At the end of the day, this emblematic build is as striking in small-scale form as it was upon its initial reveal a few years back. With every detail from its F-Design roof rack system, front bumper delete, and even smiley-face embellishments garnering some appreciation, this sleek model is a surefire conversation starter — and that’s the case whether other parties involved are aware of the original V-Lada’s existence or not.

If you’re an off-road junkie or simply need a new model to adorn your shelf, then this meticulous build couldn’t have come at a better time. You can pick up Solido’s 1:18 scale model of Vagabund Moto’s monstrous V-Lada on the latter’s site for $60.

Purchase: $60
