    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.

    Richard--Any idea on when the next batch of 2019 1:43 ZB's will be arriving? Also are there any other 2019 Enduro liveries that will be offered?

    Also any idea of when the 2018 1:43 Kelly Racing Nissans will arrive if still being made...Cheers

    Thanks for the update Richard. Thatís awesome news and will be a fantastic looking model. Also with your interest in 1:18 lemans winners any chance you guys might look at bringing in the CMR brand? I have got the 1958 jag and 1959 Aston Martin and they are very good metal die cast for around $150 dollar mark.

I know they are currently listed as in transit but there hasnít been many updates for a while.... also when might we see the hsv vs clubsport and senator become available? And last when will there be some new monthly announcements as itís been a few months? Thanks

    Thatís really too bad! As much as I love 1/64 Iíll maybe then have to pick up some 1/43ís of the ones I really want!
    Also, I do really appreciate the effort put into trying to get 1/64ís made, even if the vast majority donít make it to production. May I ask what options are being considered to make them viable? Lower production numbers? Changes in materials/decorating methods?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your quick response Richard.
    It's good news to hear that the problem has been addressed for future releases. Awesome.

    Richard, I have noticed on the recent ZB releases that there is an issue with the sticker that runs along the top of the rear window. The decal is flaking off at the point where a groove runs under the decal.
    Have you seen or heard of this issue and can it be fixed before more ZB's are released?

    Cheers.
    Yes, well aware of those issues. We actually moved the tooling for our Supercars from that tooling across to another that we work with once the parts were completed for the last batch of 2018 cars. This has contributed to some delays on our 2019 cars but the samples we've received are very good so we don't expect that to happen on the next batch. The other reason to move the tooling was to have a specialised Supercars factory so we aren't trying to produce too much from the one supplier. This factory can concentrate on our Supercars only so we can bring them to market much faster.
