  • Hi Julian, would it be fair to say that this years Bathurst winner will be delayed for some time?

    I know that David Reynolds has a personal contract with another diecast manufacturer... It wouldn't be unfair to assume that this has lead to delays with the 2016 Bathurst fastest lap car.

    erebus has had a steady contract with Biante in the past and this delay appears to be inordinate - it has rained Merchs recently.

    Hopefully Biante are the ones to make them, I shutter at the idea of water slide decals on a matte black, it looks to be a complicated tampo job.. one that no other company can pull off!

    • Can tampo printing be done on a matt finish? I was under the impression it was only possible on gloss and that waterslides was the only option. I recall some discussion about it when Biante made the Dick Johnson 1983 Morning after car.

      • The recent HRT cars and the morning after car I believe are tampo on matte, the Starwars Tander/Luff car in particular being a good example.

        Water slide decals will just silver and fall off, the back wing on the 1998 winner has this problem.

        CC nor Apex are able to do this, the new 888 Red Bulls cars are gloss!

        • Yeah the new Red Bull cars are a joke in gloss. Their most defining feature this year and CC didn't even attempt to do it.

          You might be right about Tampo/matt finishes and I am getting it mixed up!

            Thanks
            Reynolds/Baird 2016 car should early next month. It's already in a container.


            Regarding all the Bathurst related questions, rest assured we're doing what we can to get the requested models the go ahead. There's a few moving parts in play though so the announcements might be a few weeks away sorry guys.

                      Well it will have Premat's name as well as Mclaughlin's, as well as the Bathurst 1000 logo on it.

                      • It would also have the orange numbers on the windows for being the Championship leader

                        • biante already announced that they will be making both bathurst cars and a twin set i think,at the start of the year

                          • That was for the 2016 Bathurst cars from memory

                            • THANKS Biante :-) I picked up my 1:12 Scott Pye Penske Falcon on Saturday...........VERY Nice.

                              Do you know yet when you might be receiving B18F16K ? The Retro Livery from 2016.



                              Just thought I'd add this question >> Do you expect any other 1:12's before Christmas ? ( ie: Lowndes Or The 2017 Penske's ? )
