Replicarz Chaparrals

Post by RaceOddity » Sun Jul 28, 2019 1:08 pm

I just noticed that Replicarz is expecting some 1:18 scale Chaparrals. :o :shock: :shock:
How cool is that. Being a Jim Hall fan, I have many Chappies.
It appears like Mark intends to fill the void in the Market.
Here's hoping he has 1:43 plans. I miss my Mark II.

I emailed the redoubtable Mr Fothergill regarding the 1:18 scale Chaparrals in his catalogue.
His response was that they had a great relationship with Mr. Hall and could model most cars.
I inquired about the possibility od 1:43 making an appearance. He was unconvinced that
there would be sufficient demand. wow.

I would give someone's left nut get a new workup of the Chaparral IIc
that won Sebring. :mrgreen: :lol:

Plenty of Chappies needing to be made in 1:43 including the first front engined one.

I agree. I too would like to see the Sebring 2D. I am going to be in Vermont at the end of the month and plan to visit Mark and Replicars. I will do some lobbying!

I agree Jeff. Jim Hall's fertile imagination gave us a lot of amazing cars.

Glad I can count on you Jerry. I think that we can likely get
what we want but it will take a full court press. 8-)
Mark would likely see reason. If not, Jerry makes another trip to Vermont....... :shock:
You do still have your violin case don't you?? :lol:
