I have two from them, the prototype VW Beetle & the Bentley Flying Star, both are nice models with perfect paint, detail wise they're not bad, but not excellent. Imo they're sort of a more expensive OTTO, but they're not as good as GT Spirit.

Pretty much. GTS is better than BoS, and Otto is about the same as BoS. Some a re a lot better than others, though.

Do they tend to do multiple colors for a given model? I really want an Iso Grifo but I'm not crazy about the gold, and I'm trying to decide if its worth waiting...

I have not seen them rerelease any model with new colors. You might have to get the gold if you want that car. It is really nice though. I really like mine.

Question about the Grifo:
A German review pointed out that it is inaccurate because all Grifos had chrome side sills, while the BoS has a chrome line with body-color sills beneath it. I sifted through lots of pictures of the Grifo and couldn't find any with body-color sills. Does anyone know if the model is accurate or not? If not, I think I'll try adding some chrome foil...

Here's a BoS release I took a chance on...it should be arriving at my doorstep some time next week.  I wanted to buy something different, and I think I succeeded.  Yes, it's a 1972 Cadillac Coupe de Ville:

Posted Image

I've always loved the big Cadillacs of the 1960s and 1970s.  I was excited when NEO made 1:43 models of some of them, but I never dreamed I'd see them in 1:18 scale.  I want to order their 1967 Eldorado as well, but I'm not crazy about the super-wide whitewalls on that car.  Still, it'll be great to have some Cadillacs from this era to go with the GM muscle cars in my collection.

^I saw this today on Modelissimo. After spending a decent amount of cash on 3x Spark 2002s, I don't think I'll be buying this. I do like the livery though.

Everytime new models are posted here I am afraid there is something I want. Thankfully, I want neither.

Yeah, I want one, but not liking the color. I know there won't be a second choice so I should get it. And I still want the Rolls Royce. So, later this year when I am ready to start buying again, I will get the pair.
