Very nice. Shame that I didn't buy one when they were still common.

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

See how utterly and exceptionally fantastic that car is?!? The most awesome big cat not from Africa or India.

It's a nice model but I can't get on with that colour. I know it's BRG and this is a British car but I think it would have been nicer in a brighter shade; yellow or baby blue perhaps?

K&R Replicas AC 3000ME - always fancied one of these as a kid, and for about £10k they are at the reasonable end of the viable classic car scene

Nice subject though, hopefully, somone will release an upto date model.

Likely a victim of close-up photography. It will look fine in the display.

Harsh but somewhat fair. The K&R kits are well past their prime but until someone releases an up to date version i’m happy with this. Tom’s comments are closer to the mark- it looks better in real scale than zoomed in.

Sorry, I didn't mean to cause offence. My drab grey one is on par. We realy need an updated model.

Paint looks loads better on yours David but black surrounds are still a bit shaky. I still remember seeing the Bohanna and Stables Diablo original at Olympia the Racing Car Show in the early 1960s then via various Earls Court shows waiting a further 9 years for it to reach production as an AC, become an Ecosse and then disappear for good... Shame.

Must look smashing at 100 paces ;)
I agree, we really need a modern model of this great little car.

Count me in a fan as well of this once 'modern' AC! I'm a bit surprised that Spark has not done this yet? I mean, they did the Lister Storm already :P BB
