    Biante News, Announcements and Updates

    Hey everyone, I'm starting this new thread to try kick off a more interactive relationship with all our forum members.
    It will contain everything below;


    - New model announcements.
    - The new newsletters
    - The weekly releases.
    - News.
    - Updates on any of our new projects like the VN etc.
    - News about any collectors nights or events we're going to.
    - A sneak peak of a model in development here and there.

    Plus I'll try answer any questions where I can. I won't be able to keep an eye on it every second of the day but I will be on here regularly
    The thread will be open to everyone so feel free to contribute.

    Looking forward to getting the 2018 WAU Bathurst ZB. Hopefully Biante do a better job of the chrome the CC did with the Lowndes farewell car.

    Julian---Thanks for the update. Hopefully they don't all come in at one time (9 ZB's, 4 Nissan's) and are spread out a little.

    Julian, any chance you guys get the contract to do the 2018 Penrite ZB's? I know AC did the 2017 cars.

    Awesome thanks Julian for the update on the ELs, please can you send me a PM in a couple of weeks when you know more on when in September they will be out so I have an idea as I have those plus the FGXS from you guys and Authentic Collectables coming also within September so I can further budget for them all.

    Also good news on the EFs that they are at a new factory, hopefully fingers crossed the samples are too your standard so they can go into production soon and there's no further delays again as they are long overdue as I've mentioned before especially the Seton EF been waiting an eternity for it.

    Finally do you have any update on the Nicky Hayden tribute bike from Minichamps, I have it on preorder on the Apex Replicas website for a co worker who is a Motorcycle and MotoGP fan so I can give him another update thanks.
    EL's will be later this month at this stage.

    Unsure on the Hayden bike but if you see it in other markets around the world then it shouldn't be too far away from hitting Aus.

    Hi Julian,

    not sure if it has been asked, but now that the first & last Commodore set is done, are there plans to do a first & last Falcon set?
    Not at this stage but we'll see. The Holden set was obviously much easier to produce as we already had access to the tooling of both cars.

    Also for Richard---Any word on if or when the 1:43 Nissans will be made....

    I'll start on the Sept announcements. Very happy about the Vixen red FPV GT R spec. I have both the black & the white version. I always thought they should have made the red one when the black one came out. The Highway patrol car also looks pretty good & the Moffat sandown winner isn't the most exciting looking race car but it is a Moffat sandown winner so that makes it a thumbs up from me.

    No 43rd Bathurst Winners in the pipeline right at this second but there's a few on our radar.

    EF's are at a new factory now and work on them is progressing. Hoping to have new samples soon and then we can start production. It's more likely that they will slip into Q1 next year.

    This weeks releases are in the news section now. Then the next 2 weeks after that should be the 1:18 Holden twin set and the Tickford FGX's in both scales.
    I'm not sure on the August announcements just yet but they are being worked on as we speak.
    Thanks Julian for the update, looking forward to the Tickford FGXs soon, how about the Bowe Cat Expo EL and Johnson EL where do they fit in are they now an early September release or will the CAT Expo EL be out by the end of August also?

    At this stage all the TIckford cars will be released at the same time. Just depends on container ETA's.
