Thanks Paulius. Q1, 2018 could be an expensive time !

I'm mostly safe.

Only a few 1/43 Alfas! Nice to see the Bathurst 12 Hour winning 488 is there - that is a must for me.

I'm safe too. Maybe I didn't look at it with enough attention but I couldn't find the Ferrari 488 GTE LM entry from Risi Competizione from the '17 Le Mans race.

Nice one Paulius. Certainly some LM Ferrari's for contemplation. What is there to contemplate I here you ask..............Indeed, get on with pre-ordering. He who hesitates etc

I think your right Bruno,1 but remember this is only the Q1 catalogue, so perhaps the Risi car is scheduled for later in the year.

Aside from the 2017 cars, the one that jumps out for me is this unusual 1962 TR61 :

I liked that one too. Even though in such a nice (and different) livery, I can't say it's desirable enough for me to justify the price.

If you check the first pages, there are models that are listed but not pictured in the further pages.

Besides in the list you can see the estimated release dates, some are scheduled for Q2 or Q3 and other TBA... Definitely won't be released on time (as always)..

For concept car model fans there will be news, too.. (not listed).

In part it depends what you pay for your Looksmarts Luc. The guys in Europe are charging US$ 125 (although those of us outside Europe get the VAT deducted), US prices from Replicarz are $120 (less 10% or US$ 108 if your a club member) while you can get them for ~$95 from SPR. While that might be twice the price of an IXO, I think its still good value for the quality.

I have a few on Pre-Order from SPR, as they are now retailing for upwards of A$200 in retail stores over here - I have even seen a road car at A$250 which is getting out-of-hand.

One model from Look Smart that I am really looking forward to is the Alfa Romeo SE 048SP, but I didn't see it on this catalogue.

So the WRX Ford Focus that Trax had showing on their website has unsuprisingly failed to materialise!

Yep. And it looks like there no hope of the 2014 & 2015 Dakar winning Minis either. While they never were announced I kept holding out hope they would make them since they released the 2012 & 2013 winning Minis.

I don't see the Camel Trophy Land Rover on their catalogue. :x

EDIT: the car from the picture was so dirty that I didn't recognize it as I scrolled through the catalogue. :lol:

Just hoping it doesn't have any dirt effects on it. :roll:

Great to see that TSM is making the latest BMW M5. Hope they will reissue the F10 M5 that was missed out by BMW.

Cheers,
