You're right about the Mohs - one of my all time grails - I'd pretty much given up on anyone ever making this oddball.
I also want all the other new announcements except the Merc. Better get saving!

This company is I-N-S-A-N-E in the best possible way :shock:

Finances willing, I can see myself buying the Aston Bulldog first and then maybe the MOHS.

Just received their Monteverdi Palm Beach and I'm very pleased - but do NOT like paying this price level for anything this small :roll: BB

BB I guess the Monteverdi is from AutoCult and not Matrix isn't it?
I'm with you, it's my favorite model maker (along with Spark and AutoCult nowadays).

Luc, the Citroen was used to film car racing (as well as horse racing) back in the day, so could be a nice diorama piece.

I'm surprised Spark is still in your favourites list - they don't really make much for us concept/supercar collectors these days. With you on AC and Matrix though and I would add Looksmart to the list.

Nah, even back then it would have to be a truck (preferably a Toyota) to be more realistic.

I remember seeing the Bulldog on the cover of my Road & Track when I was a kid. What an outrageous concept! Bulldog indeed. Crazy wheelbase.

The yellow Pegaso Cupola is out… I checked pictures of 3 different online sellers and all show from minor to noticeable waving on the rear window frame:

Anybody got theirs already and can confirm the finish on this part?

That looks mean.
But if the rear window (with all that surface) is bad, it kind of ruins the car, specially because I'm positive this one ain't cheap.

I hope you can find a good one Paulius because that’s a great looking car that looks like nothing else.

It’s times like these you really want an old fashioned bricks and mortar store where you can hold it in your hands before you buy it.

I hope so too… I still remember a couple of years ago I had to return same model twice and finally cancelled the order (because of the infamous Looksmart waving windows..), and still haven't got the model of that car due to this reason - all the samples I've seen had the same problem.

I do close my eyes for small problems/defects, but this is just too visible and it's one of the most important areas of this particular car...

I saw the real car on tv in Chasing Classic Cars and later in the Louwman Museum and I love it. Out of this world.

No problems with my one and the one posted recently by Madalinutzu also looks fine. One of the most extraordinary cars of all time. A must have - just go ahead and buy! ;)
