actually the entire kit is available in resin, including (but actually purchased separately) the stand, trophy and girl. regularly sold on ebay out of Australia and the casting is not the greatest especially on the small delicate pieces like the trophy figurines.


guess what, for 25$ each even on speculation, I am in, for 2 of them. evidently judging from the email I just got back from them I am order number 40 so someone is buying them, that would seem to be since yesterday. even if it does flake out this promises to be an interesting gamble. certainly better than some dog catcher thingamabob.


but a dog catcher thingamabob in the hand is worth at least a couple of these in the bushes.



If the kit comes out as it is now being talked about, $25 might cover the shipping cost, not the kit cost. One thread on another site has the kit being produced via 3D printing, which would cost a lot more than some people realize, probably more than an original kit on Ebay  :huh: Don't hold your breath waiting for a new kit. I doubt it will happen. As for the resin copies from Australia, I know someone who bought one and was very displeased  :( This whole subject is getting rather redundant  :(

The girl is available in resin  :rolleyes:


All this talk about a car that may not even exist, may not have existed since 1969, the last time it was shown. Hmmm... :D  Maybe the real car was never built by Steve...maybe it was built by aliens who used Steve as a front  :lol:


FYI...I still have my Uncertain T from 1966 and the trophy and recently sold my spare built-up.

It almost has scam written on it :) However, as P.T.Barnum once said, 'there's a sucker born every minute', so somewhere someone will buy the first registration and think it is really something special. I think it's a load of manure :) 


Now, everyone go to their computer and make your own plates for all your models. Make your own design and your own set of numbers and a proper registration list so you know all your models are yours. Don't forget to charge yourself and pay your bill promptly :)

I have box art of the 1966 and 1990 kit. Were there any other years the kit was issued? Thanks...

There are a few of us staying at the Red Roof Inn on South Reynolds Road, so feel free to drop by Friday evening for a chat. I have booked a ground floor room and will have an open door for visitors. No smoking nor drinking please :)
