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.

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

Rover arrived or rather the packaging did and no model as the thin sellophane was ripped and no model so have asked for a replacement. Next release appears to be a Volvo S40...

At last the Zephyr which will be Jeff Uren's car from 1959. I have a soft spot for them as I have owned two 1:1 scale Zodiacs and driven a fair few Zephyrs. As for the S40, meh. I really should get motivated to sell the ones that I don't want but I'm such a lazy sod. 8-)

Series goes on and on and has already exceeded the original release list. Will be interesting to see what other cars materialize.

The Zephyr is nice but it has the stock bench seat in it and I'm kind of sure that it had a lightweight bucket seat as the bench would have you sliding about during hard cornering! I have to hang on when I'm ahem having fun in my 1959 Impala otherwise I'd end up on the passenger side of the car.

I'm hoping they do the Alan Mann run 1964 Falcon that won in 1967 with Frank Gardner at the helm, likewise Mr Gardner's Camaro that won in 1973 I think. Plus the 1963 Willment run Galaxie that Jack Sears drove to victory in 1963.

I tried to get an answer out of Atlas Editions, All they told me was there will be 31 models in the set, I've heard from a good source that the next model is Andy Rouses's 1985 Sierra, After that one who knows

I've been trying to get a full list and keep getting told they don't have it :roll: I then asked how do the makers know what models to make if no one has a list??? They then passed me over to someone else that just hung up the phone.

Interesting that date of next item for me has been put back from today until the 1st of March so guess they are still deciding what the next release should be!

More likely linked to Chinese New Year and the closure of factories over the coming weeks.
