Speechless. Some models, especially those towards the end, I haven't heard off.

Did you just number them? Where did the numbers come from? T.Seng told me he did not have official catalogue numbers for them.

I see one inaccuracy - the Hispano Suiza I have is #18 of 23, not 50.
I wish we knew more...

I also need a similar list for VF and MOG. Just to see the models I will not be able to find :)

Many years ago Grand Prix Models from UK used to list all models with codes, and afterwards all the additional catalogue numbers and missing models were completed in one Excel file by Mr. Seng himself in one of our email conversations (even though there is no physical catalogue where you can check the numbers). The edition numbers and release dates are added by me so possibly mistaken. He told me that some models were made even in lower numbers as they were so fragile that during shipping from the factory to their office some used to get totally cracked/smashed.

I have many photos of VF models (especially RRs and Bond cars with dioramas - all from his website), and possiby a list somewhere... I'll see what I can find. The problem is that my archive is split into 4 pieces with thousands and thousands of pics, and yesterday sadly I noticed that one part of the oldest pics is damaged (.rar file that cannot be opened), I had many old photos of Ban Sengs (Ikenga and others) there. :x I have to find one more CD somewhere at home with the oldest infos so will see what "treasures" are hidden there hahaha

I don't have any detailed info on MOG though, sorry. probably some pics of the most interesting models for me (i.e. concept/tuning/coachbuild)

EDIT: I think list thread should be moved to Model Reference section.
Besides, the Colani Corvette Utah speed record model was released with decals and without, not sure about the story of it, there may have been around 20-30 with decals and some without.

I found this pic of the Yow Ford Coin (left) on the http://www.Modelautoforum.nl site, it's the BS model I most regret not buying. There's a great collection of concepts there which were posted there about 10 years ago when many of these models would have been current. This is the only pic I'm able to upload for some reason but it's worth a visit if concepts are your thing.

I have found some more BS pics on my work computer but most are already in Paulius' Photobucket. I have only added Ikenga, Jiotta Caspita II and Nissan MID-4.
