Will you be selling under a brand name and will there be more releases in the future?

Lots of nice flat windows so no problem with fit or curves.
Presumably for series production and sales you have to obtain a licence for using the logos?

Na-ah. It's a very small quantity. 43 pieces, not a series.

Now, if anybody is interested - the special price for the Forum members is $150 USD plus shipping. Shipping in US and Canada is $20. For those of you who are not living in US or Canada, shipping is also $20 BUT the model will be shipped directly from Ukraine, meaning you have to wait until the next batch is ready. International shipping from Canada is extremely expensive.

Retail price will be $180.

Next one is up!

Like with the Lambo, only 43 pieces are made. The colour is actually a deeper green, more like the real thing. My fluorescent lights in the room make it a different shade in the picture.

An interesting customised variation which I (and probably many others on here of a certain age) had quite forgotten about. How many 'Rambo' Lambos have you sold so far?

Nice! I've never seen the 1:1 but the model looks good.

That's excellent. The Ferrari will probably do even better. I like the way that you have chosen unusual variants of iconic marques.

The Lambo was only going to appeal to a small demographic as most collectors would, I imagine, want a model of the regular LM and be happy with the Minichamps version. Your estate version is for the Lambo diehards and with only 43 made should all comfortably find homes. The choice of the Jankel Ferrari is surprising in that MOG made a pretty good one (as well you know!) though your version looks far superior. Good luck as ever with this venture.

Thank you!

The MOG was a very hard to find; it took me years to get one built from a kit, and then within a year I bought two factory-builds. The problem is ALL three have enough imperfections in my eyes, and I have been trying to sell them at a loss. This one is much better :)

The next model will see the light shortly!

Not a model that is in my wheelhouse but that does not take away my hope that it is a smashing success for you.

It's not a model I'm likely to acquire either, though I'm sure it will appeal to a few here.

My only observation is maybe the wheels could be deeper and have more of a 3-D effect - they seem a bit 'flat' in comparison with the wheels on the 1:1 Ferrari 400:

There are at least two types, I think the model's wheels are correct:

Tom is right. Standard 'flat' wheel is more common and shown in sales brochures of the time.

Took a bit longer than expected, and about half are sold before I even had a chance to hold one myself. Better pictures will follow.

You all know this car :)

Another great choice and a beautiful model. No, I've never seen the real thing.

Fanastic subject Albert!!! Never thought there will be a 1/43 of "regular" production (can't say mass production hehe).

I only saw the 1/1 photos, congrats of this fantastic looking model!

Very impressive all lined up like that, as always the best of luck in moving the other half.
