New Ginetta G15 model

Looks nice - Autocult stuff is generally very good. Its a limited release (genuine limited release - unlike some other brands) so I'd move fast...

Just tried to buy one (they look nice) but it's not quite available yet - I think it's May before you can buy? - no idea of price at this point.

Looked for a Clan equivalent - no chance of course :lol: Clan004

Me too - they seem to be about £90 for similar models.

The main UK Autocult distributor has just sent a mail saying that the RRP is £90.99 and there should be stock shortly. :-)

Very nice looking model, that. However, the £91price tag for a 1:43 scale is beyond my means. I'd find it for a 1:18 perhaps :lol:

I have one here (at work) and it is very nice - I may end up buying it for my own collection, as I believe they are all sold out now and this one has to go back to the distributor once the magazine has finished with it.

I get what you are saying about the cost. Sad fact is that away from Vanguards and Oxford Diecast, quality models cost money. These have a *lot* of handwork in them - and as we all know that costs money.
