Yet another beautifully presented report - we are having a first class photographic feast this week!
But I wonder about AutoArt . . .
They make what are possibly the most detailed slot cars there are outside of the high-priced, top-end resins from the specialist manufacturers, but I am not sure who exactly is the intended market for them. I honestly don't see the slot racing market growing much bigger and, even if it grows a little, I don't see Auto-Art as the driving force behind that growth. So they have to grab customers from the other manufacturers.
It looks as though Fly could be their intended primary victim
As for a new track system, with a footprint that may slightly exceed that of Carrrera (!), it's going to have to be even more incredibly special than their cars to stand the slightest chance of breaking into the existing track sales pool. Although there are definitely some obvious track improvements that could be made with regard to existing sytems, will AutoArt make them? Even if they do, can such a relative newcomer to slots grab the track market from the current big hitters, especially with that big footprint?
Are they wise to even contemplate it?
Ah, the Miura, the first Ferrari rival (roadgoing GT)! I remember another model of the Miura, a Policar 1/24 in the '70 with a vacformed body and a plastic chassis, but this is a real beauty, a must-have for classic car lovers.
