It looks like the Cavalier is the saloon model after all. I think it looks good for the price.

Seller had a couple more from that series listed here

I suspect its a Norev casting (which I have never seen in the flesh)
Its pretty ok with me , mirrors are a little odd :D

There are no magazines with these models just a small "certificate".

I got my 3rd Chevorlet Cruze and it didn't have decal problems, which I'm very happy about.

I received the 1965 Mustang BSCC winner today, as driven by Roy Pierpoint. Pretty nice too, they even got the front arches (which were cut away to the upper body line) correct. I'm hoping they will also make Frank Gardner's 1964 Falcon Sprint (available in white metal from SMTS for £135, ouch) and Camaro. Perhaps too the Jack Sears Austin from 1958 and Jeff Uren's Mk2 Zephyr from 1959. The Sears Galaxie from 1963 would be good although I do have an SMTS model of that car. I think that before the Galaxie arrived he had used a Cortina GT to bag some points so technically there would be two winning cars from 1963.

So far have received models in a very random fashion and with big gaps in between editions. Questionable finish on several but they have all re-sold well on Ebay!

Ive signed up because of one model but missed it. Spoke to Atlas and if you sign up to the series you get the first 3 in order (Mk1 Escort, M3, Cruze) then you stay in line with that months release - this months being the Mustang. For any you missed you have to wait for the series to go full circle - annoying!

I cant see why you seem excited...its a terrible model . The body in general isnt well defined, especially around the rear arches , the rear quarter windows have gaps between the glass and the bodywork , the decal on the windcreen is too big and overlaps onto the A pillars and what on earths happened to the rear suspension...it looks like its collapsed . RS500`s always had a nose down , arse in the air stance.

To see these on ebay at £49.99 and £64.99 is an absolute joke .

I think I saw one of these today, a mk.1 Escort in Alan Mann livery. Looked quite good to my inexpert eyes,
