GreetingsThe Funlines are out and as ugly as I expected, a complete Caricature.
A Wholesaler in the US has ordered 24(?) of the 1956 1:43 Hardtop Model in a nice Black White combination, presumably these were as samples to see what the Retailers reaction was. One appeared on ebay and I snapped it up. Picture
Limited quantities are available through Warren Hoppe mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
I have since found the same model offered at http://www.pdbmodels.com/rioenglish/catalogue/bymanufacturer/ford/ford.htm
which may well be the wholesaler that Warren means!
Check pricing and S&H charges from both if I was you, I make no promises or guarantees about the production number, Warren has changed his mind already !!!
A new version of the 1:64 1956 Hardtop is out in a twin pack with a Model T (shades of the Lone Star twin packs ?) - Usual Red body, but different Wheels with a DD5 style. Info at www.tbirduk.com/html/maisto.asp

My reminder system failed me and I forgot to place a bid on this Brooklin Click
I see MJ placed a banker Bid, he was probably very surprised I didn't cross bid, not half as surprised as I was when I realised I'd forgotten.
In case you are wondering it is actually the Cream (Ivory) 1st Edition (1987) of the EWA car with the Green licence plate and all red Interior, as opposed to the description stating the colour is White which would be the more common 1988 car!
If of course you have a spare you can offer me ......
