Does anyone know who manufactures a good scale model (die cast or kit) of the MCS, aside from the models you can get from the dealer?

Not sure where you are from, but a company by the name of autoart make some fantastic models. In australia a big one is around $50 cheaper than the dealer models and is just as detailed. I have a smaller model on my desk at work that i got from the dealer and the same size autoart was around $30 cheaper.... sorry , but i am not sure of the exact sizes.

The mother of all model companies for 1:18 scale is Exoticar.

I just got a 1:18 CR/W MCS JCW from the MINIUSA site. It looks just like Sad Arthur except the tail pipes are rounded like a regular S.

Auto Art by far has the best Cooper S models. The quality is excellent and the detail is second to none.. This one comes in Electric Blue or Dark Silver

Expensive but worth it.
