Mclarenman50, you are asking the same question many of us want an answer to. I was hoping TSM's release of the 1/43rd Chaparrals (including the 2G!) was such an omen, but no word either way since. And, frankly, they would probably be resin, which wouldn't come close in appeal to what Exoto was offering.

The Replicarz 2K, on the other hand, is not far from realization. The website says "second quarter 2016", which we're already in, but still gives them until the end of August to release. It's on my list with the 1967 STP Paxton Turbine (which looks fantastic and has plenty of opening/removable panels and details despite being resin).
I just want someone whose baggage goes with mine [from "Rent"]...

The CMC Ferrari 312P from 1969. In my eyes, the best looking (and probably sounding) Racecar of all time.

Have you guys seen that limited-200 Midnight Blue 250 GTO by CMC?

I can't find it for under $1,200

Too much $$$, but I would probably consider it my 'holy grail' right now.

Started this hobby in late 2015. All grails have been acquired.

At this point there probably will not be any more grails or anything I'd personally label as such.

Right now, it's still this one, AUTOart Tommi Makinen 'Night Race' Subaru Impreza, there's one on ebay at £500 - which is nuts! Hence why it's still there!
