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.
Resin, high quality, very limited numbers, Australian releases. I have the Sidchrome Mustang in my collection. The VW Sports Sedan is one of their older models but absolutely fabulous in the level of detail.

If you look on the In production page you will see a ford transporter in grey primer. This has advanced much further according to their fb page and will probably be out in the next 6 months or so I suspect.

in the case of the capella, changes are

chrome wheels
chrome mirrors
snow type knobly tyres :?
thinest possible cardboard outer
no orange painted front indicators
no 'capella' tampo badging on rear flanks

in orange(like the sole norev one) also same spec as above and wished they deleted the front bumper mount spotlights

the black roadpacer looks just the same I will get one as have the green already.

I understand the need to fill an entire season's grid of Formula 1. I don't understand why you would pay top dollar for a cars that failed to qualify for the races being depicted. There must be a Starter resin kit out there for those models and it probably costs less than $10.

Is a yellow LJ Torana XU1 as well but not grabbing me like this one...and im a primary holden man!!

The deleted bootlid spoiler does make this XY look like the previous model XW I think I would have left it on personally..colour coded perhaps.

The only thing that saves me from spending a fortune on Japanese makes is that they often are just different enough that they don't look like the cars sold in the USA. I think this one is close to the American counterpart but the price will probably keep me from taking the hook.

This was the Sapporo in Europe. There is already a nice Neo from that one. Which you can find for under 40 euros. But I must say: this one looks very nice :)

Great choice. But I'd rather have a 1:43... (Still waiting for a 1:43 SP12 EC too...)

Yup it looks fantastic, but as per their new big scale policy I suspect we will never get it in our scale. Hopefully some other maker will eventually jump out (like La Miniminiera in 2027?)...

Cool!

I'd really like one in 1:43. I've always loved the Pinin! :)

What is it with 1:18? We've already lost Fronti-Art and now BBR and LS are dabbling. Still there are the old ABC and AMR Pinins. The ABC is one of their better efforts and the AMR still looks pretty good but both are expensive and what we could really do with is a nice state of the art version.

BTW have any of you supercar fans noticed that Jada are to make the Lykan Hypersport in 3 scales? Don't know what scales they are but guess which one I'm hoping for. :|

You think there would at least be a red one. Maybe since they're sedans they were only produced in these boring colors. :lol:

White, silver and black over grey was the most popular colours in Japan for the sedans from what I've seen, you got it in red and blue as well but they are quite scarce.
