Just received and flipped the Giovanardi Vectra. Thought that is the last in the series but see they are planning on sending me another instalment on the 19th. Now didn't get the Integra, Rouse SD1 and Menu Mondeo this time around so maybe its one of those.

Do any of those have enough resale value on ebay to cover your costs Chris? Im in the same boat and debating whether to cancel the subscription now.

All of them have made a profit even after fees! Several of the issues like the Avenger have gone for double the purchase price which has been a pleasant surprise. Obviously the models that have now been remaindered I had sold before however I suspect if you were to sell you would not be out of pocket over the entire run.

With the possible exception of the Integra, I think the ones i missed out on are all available now for about £12.99 or less plus postage, so i'm going to cancel.

Thought the Gio Vectra was going to be the last release but just found out a Cortina is on its way!

The Cortina will probably be the 1964 Jim Clark Team Lotus version as I think that was the only time a Cortina was the winner. Jack Sears used a Mk1 GT in 1963 before the Galaxie arrived and Frank Gardner a Mk2 in 1968 before the famous Escort was homologated. I'm hoping that they will do the 1964 Falcon used by Gardner to win in 1967 and the Camaro in 1973. The Sears Austin A90 in 1958 and Jeff Uren's 1959 winning Mk2 Zephyr would also be nice additions.

Not received mine yet which is a little worrying however there's already one on Ebay and it is the Clark car.

My Cortina arrived on Monday and it's quite nice apart from a glaring error. For some reason the model which represents the earlier version of the Mk1 Cortina has the Aeroflow rear pillar vents from the post 1964 version. Why? A tad irritating.

I've just discovered this series, only to find out that it has been canceled. Racing cars are a side collection for me, but for the price, I could not resist these.

Only from this thread... maybe I mis-read it. I hope so.

Ah OK! Just flipped my Cortina for a healthy profit which will subsidise the Rover which is due next and has already been remaindered..
