The Bentley is quite nice, but the other two cats, since I have rhinitis, I'll pass.

Those kittens look as though they have lost their mittens and are quite upset about it.

I think I preferred it when I couldn’t see the photos! Not Ghia’s Finest work, but a cracker of a model for the ever growing Maserati Wing.

I have to agree with you there, Martin, the bumper treatment is weird. The colour doesn't help either. The Maserati Wing will struggle as there are few models to get now.

When Ghia went to America... Still, I have to admit it's not bad.

This.
Wheel centres knockoffs look very protudy and the rear wheel arch just odd.
Bumpers definatly got a smash of the ugly stick...but the rear lights do remind me of the early Mazda RX series 8-)
Not one for my shelf but if it fills a hole good on you. ;)

Good spot on those tail lamps...I kept trying to place them. The car is rather unusual in design detail, but I like unusual!

David, compared to a good current Ixo, how do you think that iScale stacks up?

Luc, probably ixo+. The cabriolet version is easily equal to MC. OLECO posted one recently.

Didn't know the Maser was out. I like the front end/grille area but not really much else. Could still be tempted if one turned up cheap though. I loved the original TT but find all subsequent versions lacking. Model looks ok though.

You'll have to hunt down the old Kenna white metal version if you want a green one. Seems odd to make a car called the Green Goddess in not green although I wouldn't be surprised if Matrix do one eventually.

Those were BIG cars! Wonder if the one this model replicates is the only one made with headlights like that? Fantastic addition!

Jerry,
This is the original Daimler Straight Eight by Hooper (a subsiduary of Daimler). The 'Green Goddess' line named by the press after the metallic green show vehicle of 1948. The range of specials were known as Docker Daimlers as they were 'improved' under her direction.
