Modelo : Whip Creamer
The Whip Creamer is a Wave 1 release using the US version of the casting, dated 1969. Other than the paint colors, the differences between the CIPSA version and
the US version are subtle. The glass on the CIPSA version is slightly darker but the diagnostic features are associated with the trim paint on the front and rear
of the casting. These difference are explained in the comments section below.
- Metallic Blue
- Metallic Green
- Metallic Pink
- Medium Caps in front and Large Caps in rear
The Whip Creamer is one of the first four castings produced by CIPSA. The body paint colors are typical of the Wave 1 releases and are certainly unique when
compared to the US versions. The front and rear detail paint are the most definitive characteristics of the CIPSA Whip Creamer.

The paint color is markedly different from a US production pink car and the glass cover is darker. Otherwise, there are no noticeable differences in the casting or plastic parts.
Whip Creamer Base Comparison, CIPSA Blue at the top, UA Pink below
There are no noticeable casting differences on the base. However, the spins are different than than US Whip Creamers and show some of the sloppiness found on
many CIPSA cars.
Front Detail of the Whip Creamer, US (L) vs. CIPSA (R)
The black detail paint on the front is definitely different in texture and gloss. It looks as though it may be hand painted.
Rear Detail of the Whip Creamer, US (L) vs. CIPSA (R)
The black detail paint on the rear is also different in texture and gloss. It also looks as thought it may be hand painted.
Also note the wheel condition as compared to the paint condition.
