from Classics – “I am pleased to advise the Holden Torana A9X 1978 Bathurst Winner is almost here! We will begin shipping this highly anticipated model to our dealers on the 20th April. The production of the 3,400 pcs is totally sold out.
We have provided an up-date on the Ford Mustang GT 1986 Bathurst. The images shown are of the Hand-made model sample we review prior to the model going into tooling. There are some modifications to be carried out, but overall this has been a very pleasing Hand Sample.
We will provide further progress updates in the coming newsletters, and we are aiming to release this model in December this year.
With the 2018 Supercar Season well underway the new tooling of the models cars in all three scales is in full swing, In the next newsletter we will provide you with images of these models.
We have a number of new releases in this newsletter, of particular interest is the 1999 Holden VS Commodore Reverse Livery driven by Craig Lowndes. This is a model we have had requests to produce in the past and will be a sought after model.
We are also releasing a Custom Ute base on the Aussie beach culture. We think the model looks pretty cool and will include two surfboards.”
