Kess is an Italian model company that makes 1:43 resin replicas. The main advantage of using resin is that it allows a company to make smaller production runs of models, enabling Kess to create more specialist replicas and fill several small gaps in the market. Kess's models are of a very good quality. Kess mainly offers replicas of classic cars from the main European brands, including Alfa Romeo, Audi, Lancia, Mercedes, Maserati, Lamborghini, Porsche and Fiat. The company also replicates the less well known car makers, however, such as Iso, Monteverdi, Innocenti and Puma. And while Kess concentrates on European subjects, it does not ignore stateside replicas from the likes of Ford and Chrysler.
