1/18 - I think this car looks so wrong! I know one exists in real life, but I am glad it didn't go into production.

If you really like some particular car then you should give it a shot. BoSes are surely cheap made (definitely not a Neo) but they do look much better in real life than one could expect. I was resisting my temptations for several months but finally get '85 Fleetwood and it's absolutely nice, no problem displaying it alongside another models.

I have 2 BoS models (BMW GT and E3), but majority of the models they make are just bad. . . Flat floors, messed up proportions. . . And for 100 euros, they should be waaaaay better.

I have this which is 'exclusive' to Model car world online store. I am very happy with it, even with the typical basic underside. It's accurate as far as I can see, and as a circuit racer the interior is stripped - so no complaints about that!
Pic grabbed from the 'net. I doubt there will be any manufacturer who will bother with an alternative effort.

Quite a list and it's nice to see some American manufacturers being represented in 1/18 that are not muscle cars or from the 50's. Jeep Honcho has me interested. Would also like to see more American trucks! International Scout, Van's, K5 Blazer, etc.

I have been very satisfied with my BoS models. I think they are on par with GT Spirit and Otto.

If it looks accurate, I will also be chasing down a Broadspeed XJ12C - even though they were less than successful.....

I'm not convinced by the 'A' pillars, they look far too thick - causing the windscreen to be squeezed. A shame, I would also like one of these models. Perhaps Spark will do one (I have their wild Group 5 2002 turbo, and it's excellent).

Unfortunately their models aren't the greatest, but they make some of the most obscure subject matter around. If Spark do this one, sadly it's likely to cost about €50 more.

I keep looking at this as I'm tempted.The livery looks fun and I reckon it'd have great shelf presence. I've not got any BoS models but they look as though they lack outright detail when compared to the (admittedly more expensive) equivalents from Spark (see Warsteiner 2002 below). Drop the price by another 20 Euros and I'd probably buy it..

My Dad had a 3.0 Vauxhall senator in that colour when I was about 18.  Salmon pink I think they called it!!!  Nice car with automatic overdrive button!

For years I have been hoping somebody would do the Saoutchik-bodied Pegaso, but this is still a very welcome surprise that I'll be buying!

Some of those models in the photo's above (most of them!) are so large they're going to have to charge 1/12th scale prices for them. Resin isn't that cheap.......  :>)
Plus - we're now 6 months into 2016 and few - if any - of the long list of subjects listed earlier have hit the shelves. :mad2:

Jeep looks interesting but I'd rather have a wagon version like the one that was driven by Terry-Thomas in 'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World'. It's nice to see BoS continues to make american cars from 50s-60s-70s. It's sad but if you are interested in that era and already have all the Ertl/HW61/GMP models you wanted it's almost no other choice for now. I also like their Rover P5, it would be nice if they finally make some more rare British cars like Austin A30 or MG Magnette ZB
