    • Question for Julian,
      will there be any possibility of releasing a first podium car for Anton or Andre from the last event? Would be good to see two Penrites released.

      • Hey Julian, I have noticed that 1/18 Bathurst 1986 Perkins VK and the Bathurst 1987 Grice VL have disappeared from the future release section, have they been canceled?
        Thanks in advance

          Nissan orders are extremely low in general so we're not sure just yet on whether we'll be announcing more.
          Can't comment on the Penrite cars as we don't have an arrangement with them at this stage. Nice suggestion though.

          They haven't been officially cancelled yet. They just aren't coming anytime soon and with some important parts missing from the tooling it will be a while (if at all) until they're back in development.

          • Hi Julian, is the Kelly/Jacobson Bathurst car still looking good for minimum orders?

            I would expect it to be the one that would do quite well, it been a retro livery and the last "offical" factory Nissan entry at Bathurst... Probbaly ever...

            (May I suggest they be done in resin? the real ones were a bit top heavy...)

            • Hi Julian, just wanted to say the GTS-R models with opening parts look fantastic and if you make one in Slipstream blue then I'll be your first preorder!

                We're trying to find a way to get the Nissans made at the moment however the orders are very low. I don't think one of them has over 150 orders.
                I'm hopeful at the moment but I don't want to promise anything until the models are actually here!
                If they're made then they'll still be in closed diecast.

                Glad you like them. We've been working on these for well over a year so it's nice to see the first decorated prototypes. Still a lot of work to do though.
                We would love to add other colours in the future but we'll be concentrating on getting these 2 correct first.

                  • Reckons I'll have to get my favourite Meltonite to supply me with an 18 scale Sandman tribute if he doesn't mind.

                      • So with the 1/43 sandman would that mean there is a 1/43 VF ute mold ?

                        Comment


                        • Just a suggestion for the Apex FPV GT Mold, how about making the 2011 GT Black Edition.

                            The Sandman is a completely unique model and if we were to do a VF ute, there's not much we could use from it.

                            Great suggestion. There will be other GT's to come from that tooling so we'll pop that on the list.

                            • The latest Biante newsletter said that the blue VF Clubsport and green VF Maloo would be the last VF's produced. Does that mean there is no chance of a Heron White VF Clubsport in the future?

                                They're just the last of this batch. We'll eventually do some more however they will be at least a year or 2 away.
