    Wazza----That would work for me. I am just happy that Biante are going to start making 1:64's again. I am slowly running out of room to display the 1:43's....Hopefully Biante can go back and make some of the 1:64's from 2011 - 2015 also.

    • Hi Julian/William, I had a thought while I was cringing over the way you guys manhandle the models. What do you do with the samples and prototype models? Have you thought about auctioning some of them off for charity, like Trax do?

        Haha when you are dealing with samples day in day out, they lose a bit of their special aura unfortunately so sometimes we're perhaps a little rougher with them than we should be!

        Once we have finished with the development of the model though, the prototype samples go into our archive together with a production sample (plus any other little bits we used along the way). We do this as we often have to go back to them while developing new versions of the model. We sometimes give the occasional one away but generally we only have the one prototype so we need that for our archive and future reference. We would love to able give more away or auction for charity but generally they're needed at a later date.

          • I am going to imagine that there is a room full of prototypes and production samples ala Ironmans Hall of Armour (to make a nerd reference) and it is glorious
            PS please don't anyone dispel my prototype room fantasy by telling me they are in a box in a warhouse

                        • [QUOTE=Julian Fogarty;570133]Thanks for the feedback everyone. There's definitely a few things to fix for next time but as a whole we were pretty pleased how it went first time out.



                          Thanks! Jones EB should see a release in either March or April.

                          Thanks Julian for the update on the Jones EB 1/18 which month will be most likely out of March and April please? Also I know that you guys just recently announced these but is there a ETA release date on the Jones EB 1/43 resin and the EL GT 1/18 Navy Blue please? Im looking forward to the 2nd EL GT as was very happy with the Heritage green great job by you guys on it looks so accurate thanks again.

                          • With Erebus moving to Holdens, what are the chances of Biante making some more of their Mercedes'? (Liveries that I was thinking of were the Davison Solar livery from the first half of last year and the livery Slade ran in the US back in 2013.)

                              No worries at all. Looking like this month for the 1:18 Jones EB. 43rd version will probably land around mid year, and the blue EL GT probably around Q3.

                              We would like to make more but the order numbers have been pretty low on the Mercs. Hopefully we can make some more work though.
