Trying to make a 5 year old happy

Post

=P~ Hi all,

Sorry for the ridiculous not really F1 related post. My best friend, suddenly past at 34, with no health issues. He promised his son, 5, an Alpine car. More blue then pink. He's 5, so instead of a model, it's definitely going to be played with. He very recently bought him two bburago models of the red bulls (literally a week before he passed, it was his son's birthday present). I am finding it really difficult to find reasonably priced, metal die cast cars in Ireland for Alpine (ocon or Alonso) that are going to fit in with his current collection (1/43 scale). Is there anyone out in the F1 world that can help me out. (Admin, really sorry if this is in the wrong place, or totally against guidelines, but I know forums can be an amazing place to reach out to the wider community)

I know some might not be diecast - but did come across those on a quick search and thought they might fit the description.
