Man I love BoS simply because, even if their models are resin & sealed ... AT LEAST they risk offering never seen before models!! :10:

And most probably models that we will never see again! And that is why I voted that they should be manufacturer of the year, and not GT spirit. . .

Yep, exactly my thoughts about BoS, the subject matter alone is enough put them on my radar.  Even some of the cars that they make that other companies make, they seem to be the best option for...ie their Mercedes C111, which looks much better than the old Guiloy.  La Mini Miniera has also come out with their own Aurelia PF200, it looks a little bit better but it's also more than double the price and still sealed resin, so I still plan on getting the BoS.

I really like what I have from them already, especially the Porsche Panamericana.  Not the best quality vs other resin companies but good enough, especially when they come up for well under $100.  They need to sort out their QC though, I'm exchanging two of the first 3 that I ordered as they had pretty serious issues.

Looks really good, except the [email protected] the bed on the wheels..rims off a Camaro.  I think someone didn't do their research.  it should be the original dog dish hup caps or the rally wheels.

Hope so, as the for sale pics on model car world show the the Camaro rims. But we will give the benefit of the doubt as it does look great overall.

I don't have a decent image of it, but BoS are producing the 1976 version of their Group 2 Broadspeed Jaguar XJC.
This is not just a paint job, the changes back to the earlier car have been replicated.

I missed this when you posted it, looks good!  I already have the previous release so won't be adding this, but it's nice that they made the effort to add race-specific details on a relatively inexpensive model :eusa_clap:

I couldn't resist one with the recent 19% discount, I like 1970's touring car race subjects.
A old boss of mine was a huge fan of these big cats, and an Autosport poster of the '77 car as an ass kissing exercise made life a bit easier for me!
And I do have a soft spot for Ralph Broad and his efforts to wring decent performance out of a number of BL products of the time.
He tried to persuade BL to let him use the 'lighter' XJS instead, but they wouldn't listen.
BL in a nutshell methinks.
Uncle Tom later showed that using the XJS was the better option (I also have an AutoArt version).

I'm very happy to see these! Is it me, or does it seem like BoS is slowing down with new releases? Does anyone know what else they might have coming down the pike?
