You read my mind, Steve... :D

Still waiting on pictures for blue and orange...

If those sport black wheels, then it would make the decision more stressful... :)

I know it's 1/18 but the yellow one looks great with the black rims...

That's a bit odd as yellow is usually a pretty good seller.

I haven't seen these Panteras yet but I want one of them.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

But what is it about Make Up and their 45 degree windshield wipers on the Panteras? I looked at dozens of pics on line and not one 1/1 was like that? Someone should write them a letter.

One thing the MakeUp and LookSmart do have in common is their high price tags, which sadly is whats stopping me from adding one of these to my Lambo/Exotic car collection :cry:

Might have to wait and see if someone Aa, MC or Spark will try to make any of these at a slightly cheaper price as even they are getting pretty pricey these days too :roll:

So, Zimbo, not going to slum it in the ixo/Altaya camp then ?

That's some fancy resin, around $300 apiece I recon. The baby blue or pink for me... maybe but they sure look gorgeous.

Hi Alistair....I sent message to makeup regarding these 458's...

If/When I get reply, will update...:)

Also, very curious myself who produce these Fine Italia's...:D

Im also attracted to that Pink...

Blue one....I like exterior color, but not so much for those blue wheels....

Surprised to see no orange...That would look quite nice...:D

I wonder why Makeup would release the Mazda 787 when its been done by IXO, Minichamps, Spark and HPI.

As nice as the Makeup is, I don't see it replacing my HPI :

I'm sure they're well aware of this, and it doesn't bother them....

It's no secret they announce and go forth releasing models that have been produced by others of years past....
Yet, they still sell....

Makeup and others are not aiming to compete directly against the likes of what you mentioned...

As long as the level of build quality is maintained and standards held high, there will be a steady
stream of dedicated, repeat customers willing to pay more for something extra... :)

Weird, that's a strange shade of orange to put on the Huracan. It wouldn't be my #1 (or 2, or 3) choice of color.
