I do think you're right about the pinion gear, Mr Freak! Though its performance with that much weight behind the rear axle will be interesting to say the least. Wheelie-car, anyone?

Still no mention of the Pegaso, though!
I have a catalogue with it in and I want one
, Or several!

All of those in all liveries please. I'd almost given up hope of Fly doing the 917LH and bought a resin one. And more Lancia Ralye 037s...

When?

I do REALLY hope that the 917LH pictured is a pre-pre-pre-prototype and FLY will not take (again) the easy way, i.e. using the existing 917K front moulding as seen in the pic... the 917LH nose is quite different from the 917K.

Regarding the 917LH: Come on, Fly, you can do better than that!

I suppose they tried to make a copy of a 1970-body, but they got it all wrong

Especially the front-light covers are just WRONG. They´ve taken the 917K front and new front plate with new louvres and just added the new tail! I hope they make a new front and put things right

On this site you can see the REAL Porsche 917LH and how its supposed to look!!! http://www.porsche917.com.ar/xhistoria1970_3.htm , scroll down to Le Mans.
The BMW M1 looks good, though

Great, I am looking forward to the BMW M1, the Porsche 934 and the Lancia 037


But I really hope that these cars are not as ugly and misdesigned as the BMW CSL and the Ferrari 365.

i like the fact that FLY have put the motor in the right place on the 911 - should have some 'interesting' handling characteristics, just like the real thing !

lancia 037 & renault turbo 5 - mmm'm lovely - now we can recreate those early group B days

BMW M1 - wow this should be fab, looks like they talk about liveries including BASF, map of france + others (hope they do a 'procar' works livery with the motorsport stripes)

2005 could be a bit expensive in slot terms

I am tempted by the 911 due to interest in the engine position! Main thing I am looking forwards to is the Carrera 6 / 906 - although just found an MRRC bodyshell off ebay - so if that turns out great, might pass on the latter!

Just remember it took Fly about 4 years to realise their GT-40 from the first release of catalogue pics and early "spy" shots of resin prototypes.

Love the ambition. Porsche 917LH, 906, BMW M1 all will make their way into my home at some point provided they don't gork the final model.

Fly have been curiously "off" in some of their models of late, the 365GTB being the most obvious... so we'll see.

I am fickle enough to have passed on the above mentioned Ferrari, even though I was most looking forward to this release.

Go Fly!

There's enough good news today on the 2005 front to begin planning the new storage cabinet!!!!

Cheers, Ken R

A motor behind the rear axle? That should be interesting. What's with the Porsche Carrera at the end of this link's pages. Is that A Fly prototype as well? Looks cool.

Second the opinion that 2005 will be expensive.

Not that i'm complaining, an absolutely superb choice of cars.

1 of each please.


Relieved to see the 911 doesn't have the squashed appearance of the Daytona/GT40. The Porsche 911 looks great to my eyes, superb wheels, pretty shape and the unique motor arrangement should be fun.

A BASF M1 hoorah!

I love the "squashed" look of the FLY GT-40 and Ferrari Daytona. The FLY GT-40 looks more "real" to me than the scalectric version although I'm not intereted in measuring with a micrometer. I think the daytona is one of their most beautiful cars.

When you shrink something to 1/32nd of its real size you need to take some creative liscence to trick the eye. Taller cars end up looking like toys even if they are more "scale accurate". Being at the top of this game, FLY has endured some heat but I appreciate what they are doing with their designs.

M1 - drool
911 with rear mounted motor looks like something to own, I think it will work and wont wheelie.
R5 GTT - worth having
037 - Damn I so NEED that car!

That rear-engined 911 should prove interesting. I'm curious to see how it will handle around my track. Fly cars, however, are getting quite expensive. With the ever improving quality of Scalex, Slot-It, and Rev-O-Gram cars at much more reasonable prices, not to mention some interesting releases from Ninco and others this coming year, fewer Fly cars will make their way to my paddock this season.

That 911 is nice but I think Fly could have touched it up a little better, but I guess it is the prototype, the 917 is a gotta HAVE!
