Indeed it is regrettable that CMC didn't release more colours over a longer period of time for popular models like the 250 SWB, which only had 4 variants. Like you said, they could have further monetized collectors who may otherwise have bought more than one of each, given the minimal incremental R&D that would have entailed.
Yes, missed a real opportunity to release the TT Stirling Moss version - IMO one of the most iconic racing Ferraris

Yes the window seal has been greatly improved on the latest releases. I have the Midnight blue version and I have no complaints.

My advice is never buy the first models released by CMC. The race livery versions are usually built at the end when issues have been corrected.

I'm assuming the #26 NART Le Mans car will be released last?
Statement from a dealer in the Netherlands in their latest newsletter:

The last Ferrari-version, M-199 # 26 Le Mans, will probably not be released before 2023 (CMC may prioritize the release of one or more Uhlenhaut-models in December 2022).

Here are new shots from CMC of some of the details of their upcoming Alfa Romeo Tipo B (P3).

I have not been impressed with CMC for a long time. The previous photos of this model (this thread, page 36) had somewhat reconciled me to the brand and these only confirm it. I can't wait to see the final finished model. It looks like it will be a pinnacle of precision. If this is confirmed, I will be able to afford a nice CMC again.

What do you think of it?

Lovely. These older racers are ideal subjects for showing mechanical parts with some added functionality like brake, suspension... That's where CMC excels. But I wouldn't say that it is better that than a 275 GTB/C. Just very different subjects.

This is sooo nice! :love:
I didn’t plan to pull the trigger for CMC‘s P3 but when I see these pictures I am definitely hooked…

Does anybody know whether all version will come with this dark red livery? Or are there other colours too?

CMC has announced a further 10 models, all in race livery (7 sold individually and 3 others in a unique set dedicated to Tazio Nuvolari).
Of the 10 in total, 7 will be from the 1932 Grand Prix, 3 from the 1933 Grand Prix (including at least one from Scuderia Ferrari, so obviously red with the Cavalino Rampante emblem).
The only photos available are period shots, so in black and white. It is difficult to determine the colours, but it seems that they are all red.

Thanks @John Drake - that was exactly my problem:
All pictures so far published by CMC are b/w photos from the 30s and I have no idea whether there were other colours than dark red. Was just wondering how this P3 would look in dark blue or black or... :unsure:
