Very tempting, but 4x Looksmarts isn't very wallet friendly.

Still nothing about these Ferraris in Nuremberg?

I want the LM '67 2nd placed P4 #21, as I already have the #25 and #24 from MG Model.

Another two interesting models coming out this year. The yellow 512s Ecurie Francorchamps Ferrari will make me very happy.

The question is whether it will come with the Camel logos attached, or will we have apply the decals ourselves.

I am not sure if there was a thread for Looksmart new models, if not maybe we could leave this like a general one (without yearly release threads).

Just found this

The pic is very big, check it out. Selling for a mere 349€.

349€ is pricey, even for a Looksmart and although I'm sure the model will be excellent it must be said this is not one of Ital design's finest. Still, it is a super/hypercar which means that it automatically finds a place in my heart. Whether it finds a place in my collection depends on LS making more (it's currently a promo tool for Ital and not generally available) and in another colour; this white doesn't suit it, the far more dramatic red/black version is much nicer.

In news that will probably only be exciting to me :D , I was talking to a representative from Apex Replicas on the weekend who showed me photos of a 1:43 version of the 2017 Bathurst 12 Hour winning Ferrari 488 GT3. They are working with Look Smart and using their 488 GT3 as a base. The model is currently with Ferrari awaiting approval, and will hopefully be available in early 2018.

Seeing the Zero Uno 'in the metal/carbon fibre at the Geneva Motor Show was a huge let down for me and imo lacks the flair and imagination that this design house (now part of VW) was capable of at it's independent best. So a 1:43 will not be joining my Italian collection...

I did receive John’s email and have been sitting in the corner quivering with excitement and fear ever since.
