Not a manufacturer I was familiar with. I have seen diecasts made in the USSR before, and to be honest weren’t the best quality.
However, the models by Agat in this particular consignment appeared to be really well made. With lots of models of Ladas – no surprise there – plus the odd Moskvitch, the consignment has and is proving popular with collectors and dealers at the auction.
With limited information available, I’ve managed to learn that Agat went bankrupt in 2007. A pity!
Leave a reply in the box at the bottom of the page and tell us what would be your dream car in diecast. We’d love to hear from you!
