Hi BVR.

All I can say is that I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time. Jobs in this industry are very rare. Good luck with your search.

Sorry Malik, none available at the moment.

Reason why 1:43 scale cars aren't that popular because most people including me(sorry it I offend) consider them toys and not Collectable model cars. .

Should you collect 1:43?

In my opinion, no if you can afford 1:18 models. First of all, most people will think of them as toys, while 1:18 models can look as something classy if you have a few.

Richard, and what about the possibility of having a distribuitor here in Brazil? It's agonizing to see all Biante's cool models and not be able to find them here.

It's very doubful LUW. It's very difficult to set up and then there are also complicated licensing issues to overcome with each manufacturer. Sorry.

If you have the drool then I'll keep supplying the pics!!! :lol  :cheers

(Seriously though, I get most of mine through Gateway models in Australia who don't charge shipping on orders over $300AUS which means that even though the models car be pricey at times, you at least don't have to add shipping)

Here is the link to them:

thats for over 300 bucks mate.. you could always buy them one at a time and pay the postage...

Email the guys at gateway as they will let you know postage on what you want before ordering it.. maybe it works out better that way for you LUW?

Excellent interview. Thanks DX and Richard. About the Holden Monaro: Can the new Pontiac GTO be made from the Monaro casting easily? (with just a new front end change based on an interchangeable plastic mold like Misto does). Did you think about the possibility of making the GTO along with the Monaro? Are there any big licensing issues involved?

Again, thanks for the nice read.

We never looked at it as we concentrate on australian road and race cars. The GTO may be built here but it's not sold or raced in Aus so we didn't investigate. As all of the licensing for Pontiac would be done in the states we did not get involved.

1. VY SS Series 2 in Cosmo Mica is due very soon.

2. They are progressing well. Hand sample has been checked and approved to proceed.

3. Yep, wait and see.
