Thanks Gary. You going to list your 1:18 sales here or not bother due to it being predominantly a 1:43 site?

Fantastic car. I drove the 540i of the same generation once, it was great. Otto's model is wonderful.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

This is the first Cult Models 1:18 I have and really pleased with it......looking forward to them releasing the Aston Martin Lagonda (wedge version).

Not quite in the same league as the Range Rover, but not a bad effort from KK with this 7-Series at the price that it was.

RR is fantastic and I love the 7 too. In the 1890s, I'd almost bought a used 745i.

Simon, so many incredible cars in the last few months! Without a doubt my favorite is the Range Rover as it's nearly identical to the one my parents had in the early 1990s other than theirs was LHD and a non-metallic grey but yours is close enough for me! I will most definetly add this along with the Lagonda if I can find a good price on both. Between Otto, GT Spirit, Cult, Premium X etc etc I am seriously getting the 1:18 resin bug! BB

Following the success of the Cult Models Range Rover, and having wanted a model of the Aston Martin Lagonda for ages, I jumped on this as soon as it became available. Don't think it's quite as good as the RR, but a great model none the less.....my photos don't do it justice.

Cool car, sharp edges, straight lines, popup headlights, digital dashboard, what's not to like :)

Another home run with the AML Simon....looks like a stunner and the metallic grey colour makes it look very classy . I bet it looks impressive in hand . Congrats.

Incredible Lagonda Simon! I want one of these sooooo bad! Many sources have sold out and others want a premium. Perhaps another colour will be released and yet to me this is the perfect colour for the design.

Can you elaborate on it's shortcomings vs. the also magnificent Range Rover? BB

Tom - you'd probably need to pay similar money for a 1:43 nowadays.....remember looking for one a year or so back and they seemed to fetch around the £100 mark.

A very unique car indeed.....would hate to think how much it would cost to keep one of these on the road these days!

BB - I think I might have been a bit critical when I posted the pics.....I had a massive fight with the model to get it unscrewed from the base, which finally resorted in a hack-saw! It's grown on me since, and think it's on a par with the RR. Would definitely recommend one if you can get it for the right price.
