I saw it yesterday on e-bay. It looks impressive but price tag is impressive too, circa $300. For a moment I started to think to add it to my collection but I might not do it, $300 is $300 and it is too much. . .

That is more acceptable. We'll see. I'm thinking about it, seems to be very impressive model (and I already have some positive experiences with AR), so I might pull the trigger.

Just been to the shop, it is 280. . .

That is a lot for no leather seats, etc. I do understand it needs to stick put, but still it is a lot of money, and not so much details as in CMC. . .

There is a video on FB showing the production of the Zonda F.
Not sure if this link will work.

But similar money to most recent AUTOart releases (in Europe at least). And frankly, it absolutely kills them for detail.

They posted a video 4 days ago of a worker putting on the carbon fiber decal on the Zonda F hood! 2 good signs: 1. They're finally in production! 2. It will have an opening front hood!

I am getting really hyped up about the Tricolore and Cinque! We have waited too long for a proper fully opening Zonda

Does anyone know why the GLS Brabus ans S63 and other models where canceled? I am sick of those Land Rovers and Maybachs... I hope the Huayra BC and Zonda Revolucion will go into production soon (but I doubt it).
I hope they will make a Bentley Continental GT

Absolutely, I'd rather have that than any of the German stuff that all looks the same.  Everyone's making BMWs and Mercedes, we really don't need any more of those.  Cars from the Blower's era really lend themselves to opening diecast, far more than modern cars that just have a big plastic cover over the engine.

Hi all,

As there was some discussion about models that you'd like Almost Real to produce, I have set up a thread. Please keep this one for AR news only.

Thanks

F**k you Photobucket.

For the record Craig, the Blower was not a suggestion, they announced it in a catalog years ago.

Still waiting for this one, the Minichamps is quite bad and will cost you €200-300...
