Not likely to arrive any time soon, but one I am sure many Ford fans will be looking forward to.

Love the tube car, would look great next to the Wienermobile. However, $115 looks to be about 2 years worth of collecting budget.

Good news is they seem to be very affordable as earlier releases (form previous page) are around $20-$25 on a lot of Japanese sites. Bad news is you need to get it shipped from Japan!

I did see this Laurel announced at a Japanese site. Looks very nice, will be nice to put next to the Neo European version.

I would like to buy one of those Mazdas. Does anyone know a site that sells them? Japan is OK as long as Google Translate can make it searchable. I already have the Ebbro Toyota Crown.

I'm nearly 100% positive the Mazdas have not been released yet. Super Road has the Crown in Black but none of the other 3 (http://www.super-road.jp/SHOP/list.php?Search=f43-00). I've ordered from this site before. Just send an email to zoffy@redking.aj.shopserve.jp with what you want and he'll get back to you with a PayPal invoice.

P4 (http://www.p-4.ne.jp) has the first releases so I expect they would get these as well. Ordering process is pretty much the same: email info@p-4.ne.jp with what you want and you'll get a PayPal invoice.

My advice on these would be to wait for pics of the final product to make sure they're what you want. Granted they're not expensive so they may not have the finest details but if they fill a gap in your collection that's good enough.

As for eBay, I only see the following for ~$70.00 :shock: :
http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-First43-1-4 ... 1733848081

You should definitely be able to get them cheaper from either of the above sellers in Japan, even with shipping factored in.

Since there are a few Ford collectors here, I though they might be interested in this Australian Ford Landau with black vinyl roof from Armco models. Its limited to just 100 pieces :

Wow, I would love to add a Ford Landau to my collection, but at only 100 pieces, I'm sure that this model must be very expensive. Also, I'm not so sure about this color. Golds and Browns are more the color I pictures these. I've never heard of Armco before. Thanks for posting.

Thank you for that information. Although the Mazdas have not shown up on those sites yet, I took the opportunity to familiarize myself with the process by enquiring about some other models. I did try to negotiate the process through Google Translate, but it produced unreliable text and could not go through the checkout process because the pages were no longer secure. Emails have been sent out.

I used to have many sources for Japanese models but they all seem to have gone out of business.

Not 1:43 (1:18) but it is definitely odd.

Don't recall seeing it in your 2015 thread. How is it?
