  • Hi, Can I ask 2 question's >>

    I recently was fortunate to get a 1:18 Dick Johnson 1989 RS500 Sierra Bathurst winner - I had always wanted this particular diecast & got it in excellent [mint] condition & price.

    Were these produced in a different factory to the recently released Dick Johnson Sierra ? The '89 one sits slightly lower than the newer one & the wheels are similar - but different.

    Also :: IS there even a slight chance you may produce a Brock - Richards 05 BMW ?? I know you have produced the 05 Brock BMW ( with white Grill etc ) & the 56 Brock Richards BMW ( with Black Grill )

    The one I would like is the 05 Brock Richards BMW ( Black Grill & 05 on roof etc ) that raced at Oran Park for the Pepsi 250 > It was Peter Brock's sole victory in a BMW >> I was a freelance photographer back in those days& Could supply you with a great photo to use on the Box.

    It was a Great 250km Race between the Fury / Skaife Nissan & The Brock / Richards BMW - It came down to a better pitstop for the BMW team over the Nissan Team.

    • You could always convert one of the other Brock BMW's into the one you are after.

      • Julian--When will the next batch of 1:43 V8 Supercars be arriving?

        • The 1989 Bathurst Winner is a Minichamps mold while the newer Sierra releases from Biante use the Autoart mold. Hence the differences.

            I know they might have to be done in resin; but Celica’s and Escorts of Peter Williamson, Steve Masterson, Don Smith and Barry Seton fame could be big sellers,… we are running out of Bathurst Winners that are to be made after all!

            Regarding the Trophies, are those who brought the car direct from the Biante site required to do anything thing? I noted there was a code that had to be submitted...
            Don't have any of those planned just yet, but the sky's the limit with resin. We could actually get around to doing some of those one day. Certainly not in diecast though.

            Re: Trophies for website customers. Did you email in your code? If not, make sure you get onto it asap

            As some of the others have pointed out, the most recent Sierras are Autoart molds whilst the older ones are the Minichamps mold.

            Will definitely make a note of that BMW though and have a chat with the guys. Might be a possibility for the future and thanks for the image offer

                Hi, I thought about that - I do know someone who does Code 3's ::

                I'd use the "56" Car IF I could - The one I want has the "05" in the same style ( ie: Black outline Box with the 05 in it ) But the 56 has the number on the roof - which would mean painting the roof to put the 05 on it.

                Both BMW's produced have things I could utilize - But neither are a quick fix.

                I Just thought because the Pepsi 250 was Brock's only win in the BMW - It would make it a collectable for all Brock fans.

                I did contact one of the sellers on ebay that supply the Marlboro's for all the Commodores IF they could make some 05's to replace the 56's - But they weren't interested.

                • Hi, Is there any sign of the following :: Product Code: A73459 Product Code: A73464 I am Very keen to see the Grey one - IT looks Amazing :: Also, I've mentioned this one before - But the 1:12 Pye Shell Falcon ?? Pity your not doing his Mobil 2017 car in 1:12 - I think it looks great.

                      The 2 Torana's should arrive in late Q3/Q4.
                      Pye 1:12 still could be a month or 2 away unfortunately.

                                Last I heard was that it was almost here but with the warehouse in Sydney now I can't walk out the back and check. Will have to get back to you on this one.

                                Same as last time sorry. Waiting on the last sample to arrive before we can lock in a production slot.
