A few interesting models on there - could be the first decent XJ220 in 1/18? I know some will be offended as it'll be sealed resin, but the engine will mostly be visible through the glass so as long as they get the detail right that shouldn't be a show-stopper. Some unspecified racing Huracans too, perhaps we'll see the GT3 version.

Ah cool!

That RUF RGT 4.2 is purdy! I hope it comes with those wheels on it & not the flat ones!

That is what I thought to Wes, but if the Resin looks good, I would be happy to add it, but price needs to be better than what Autoart would charge. Likely an Autoart XJ220 would be priced around the level of EB110 or MC12. SO the resin would need to be like less than $150.

Good to hear, have you seen any of their models in person Wes?
Nope but they look alright in pics. Most resins look alike to me. I can't tell the difference between bbr/mr/tecnomodel/top marques

TM stuff is fine, nice fit & finish, on par with GT Spirit, but a little better. I have a few Alfa Romeo & Maserati models from them. I scored all of mine for about £80 each, so they weren't a bad price.

Cool! that works out to about 90 bucks, that would be just fine with me. And much cheaper than Autoart if they even do it.

If you can get them for $90 or so that is a good price, the one's I got I got lucky on, they were supposed to be over £100 at the time (which I wouldn't pay)
Some of the cars don't have have been on really good buy it now listings at £65 + shipping.

Some Top Marques updates:

Here are two deco samples of two Imprezas they're working on. It would seem they're looking for fan feedback since they know the cars better than they do.















And lastly, here's the 131 taking shape:
