  1. Meng are active on Facebook and are always posting updates on their coming releases but their GT40 has dropped off the radar with no news since last year.
  2. Steve has answered a post to his Facebook page asking for any word on the models by responding that because of the virus everything will be delayed !!!!
  3. I missed that Ford on the stripe. Looking at the instructions it looks like the Ford decal is made up of four seperate decals and the builder gets to spell it out.
  4. Magnifier is a spin off name of Trumpeter/ Hobby Boss. Maybe it's all due to licensing as no where does this Magnifier kit have the the word Ford mentioned where the original Trumpeter Kit had Ford on the box. https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10696114
  5. One of the locals built that as a tribute car. It does have some deviations from the original like front disc brakes and is an outstanding show car. Meanwhile we are still waiting for the promised new kit set that Steve Scott had promised and took deposits for years ago. .
  6. I love the art work on the box but the shape of the model looks a bit awkward to my eyes, particularly the height of that windscreen.
  7. Thats excellent work Calvin and your version looks far better than the caricature that masquerades as a Mustang on our tracks down under.
  8. Here is another Cobra kit that is being listed at HobbySearch made by a new manufacturer called GTM Models out of Hong Kong. https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10696673
  9. I have seen on another forum that the 1/12 Martini Porsche 935 and 1/20 Fiat 131 Abarth are being reissued as well.
  10. I've just came across this MPC kit on a Japanese hobby shop website. I'm guessing that its the long awaited Vega that was originally announced a couple of years ago in a different livery but never eventuated. It's saying June release in Japan. I can't find any information about it it on American websites yet. https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10698514
  11. That looks like the old Trumpeter box thats been reprinted. It's now called a US Sports Car instead of a Ford and the manufacturer is stated as Magnifire https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10696114 Meanwhile Meng have gone quiet on their 1/12 version they said they have coming to market
  12. Hobby Search are now showing it on their site for pre order. From what I've been reading it is a reissue of the Tamiya kit with a basic p/e sheet included https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10690672
  13. I'll second that. My orders from Gravity Colors Spain have always arrived all the way down here within a week and I can't notice any difference in the paint between the two companies.
  14. I've checked my one and I've got the Benz in the box. I'll be following along as you build your one.
