Wow, never figured I'd see this one come to life!  After reading an article on the car in one of my Motor Trend Classic magazines, I thought it would be an interesting basis for a model.  Seeing that MFH makes a bunch of Cobras, I thought I'd give it a shot and sent them an email in December, 2011.  I forgot all about it, but today saw this little teaser shot on their website:

A second shot confirmed that it's indeed the AC A98 Coupe!  It does say something about a "Lightweight Series," not sure if that means it'll all be resin, or curbside, or what.  If it's the latter, I wonder if it could mate with an AMT 289 Cobra for the innards.

The Lightweight is usually a curbside.

Hiros' new Lightweight Series are curbside with reduced parts. They are still multi media kits.

 

This is their description of the recently released Lightweight Series Abarth

The AMT 289 Cobra is 1/25 scale.  MFH kits are 1/24 and 1/20 scale.
