I wonder if they do other colours etc

I will wait to see if they do a model in opal green or red with a different grill!

Not seen these before - but looks like just blue and cream in 1:18 scale. Can't think why they haven't done a red one!!

The answer to the colour question is that they only do cream or blue. Marketing needs a swift kick up the backside for that one :evil: No offence to anyone with a pale blue or cream car BUT WHAT A SH/T COLOUR :lol: :wink: IMHO of course :D

Even got the bad alignment between the bonnet and the front wings right.

Shame it doesn't look to have opening doors / bonnet / boot though.

:lol: Mine is in a higher premier league all on it,s own Al actually being poo colour :shock: :oops:

Thanks Steve I have those :D but they are 1:43 scale. You are obviously not nerdy enough, good man, to know :wink: 1:18 is much bigger and very rare for a 96. I may have to succumb and get a blue one out of respect for FlipTop. I am sure they were £44 when I posted this thread, they have gone up by a tenner.

That's very nice John :) great pic but for the triffid in the foreground :shock: who makes it?

The ones I linked to have gone back down by a tenner. They must be reading this thread. Knock them down another thirty quid I will buy one :lol: all my funds are being diverted to getting my boat in the water for the bank holiday. Toys have to wait!

The 92b is made by BoS (Best of Show) and it was my Birthday present from Sarah.

Very nice looking models.
I'd love a 99 in 1:18, especially an EMS.

I fixed it shortly afterwards (the bulb-holder contacts needed cleaning if I remember correctly) and it's still working 13 years later, despite sitting out unused in the Aberdeenshire weather for about 6 of those years.

I still say it ranks as the one I enjoyed most, perhaps jointly with hooning Nick's 99T around Goodwood, despite having blown away Ferraris and Posches on track in my 300bhp Aero (which was fun too, of course).
Power isn't everything :wink:
