      I'm not Julian or William but in case you missed the last ETAs the 1:12 2016BW and the VC HDT (Palais White) were both initially slated for a 4th quarter release. Biante site says "In Production" for the 888 car so hopefully only a month or two away . With the usual attention to detail and accuracy these guys concentrate on, I wouldn't be surprised if the VC is early 2017. Personally, I'd rather wait a bit longer and have something I'm happy with. We've already been waiting a long time for this one.

      I'm sure the official word will come soon, we'll see how far off I am

      With the 95 and 97 BWs, I cant see it being made any time soon, even though it would be a far superior example compared to CC's very ordinary attempt (even with the old Biante VR/VS mould). I've had them and they just don't look right.

      I'd also love to see a 1:18 and 1:43 Brock/Moffat 1986 Bathurst VK, 90% of the licencing and tooling must already be sorted, and lets face it, once again CC dropped the ball and botched the 86 car too.

        Funny you say that I'm doing a review on the biante and Classiccarlectables 1995 VR Commodores this week. They both have there faults but as you said the biante version is a bit better. 100% right about the classic VK's they look horrible.

          Still a work in progress but I think we're closer to getting them approved at least.

          I'll second that. I cant wait for them either.

          And have we had an estimated ETA yet? (I haven't had a look back through this thread to check)

          Cheers

          Next update should hopefully see a decorated prototype and a formal announcement within the next month or 2 (fingers crossed!). ETA for release will probably be Q1 2017 at this stage.

          Townsville 1:12's should be released sometime next month with the Bathurst Winner a month or 2 behind. Number are around 200/250 for the Townsville cars and unsure on the 888 car at this stage.

          can you please make the gibson motorsports vn and vp cars,

          getting sick of classic canceling them
          Yep, we will get around to them. We should be able to make the Gibson cars at sub 1000 numbers as we have a bit more flexibility with the current VN/VP factory.

          95 and 97 Bathurst Winners will get done, and hopefully not too far away. Our VR/VS mold is still available and with a bit of TLC, should be up and running again.
          We're trying to find a new turntable at the moment actually so hopefully they won't be too far away either.

          See above on the VC.
          Can't recall all the molds that were lost but the XD/XE was the main one in the end. The rest we either got back or they weren't really worth getting back.

          Pretty much spot on there with everything. Brock's Bathurst VK from 86 is on the radar for sure as we would like to get this one right.

          • Is it possible that the VC HDT Commodore mould will eventually yield a correct 1:18 scale 1980 Bathurst winner?

            The CC version is laughable at best. I still can't believe that they thought that a VH front end would suffice - actually I can!

            • Great news about the Gibson VPs! Also looking forward to some correct Brock Commodores!

                Yes, we still want to do the early 80's group C Commodores at some point.

                • Hey Biante,
                  Do you guys plan on doing Tim Slade's Alliance Truck Parts car from Townsville? Would look very nice next to Andrew Jones Dunlop Series Car.
                  Thanks Alex

                            On a negative, the wheels on the Brock Sierra just look wrong : (

                              I don't think there's any plans at this stage but hopefully we can do them later.
