Just got back from local supplier and it's not yet in stock

Did put an order in for one though

Hopefully it will be arriving very soon.
like some of you i am not a fan of BMW (yes i have had one) but this car is such a drool fest i have to have one and of course the Daytona to go with it.
It may not be historically correct but i reckon the BMW and the Daytonna will look great with my Fly Capris RS(s) and Lancia Betas.

PS The 2 Fly Marcos that i got for Christmas are a bit noisy what should i do?

The Gr. 5 versions (two bodies with different front spoiler, side extensions and rear wing) of the BMW 3,5 CSL coupe raced in 1975 and 1976.

The were other versions though that raced in 1973 and 1974. These had side extensions of a different shape and some didn't have any rear wing. Some of the liveries of these were very close to the one that won Daytona.

Another coupe (a Gr. 2 with very small side extensions) raced in 1977 and was engaged in the IMSA category which they won in the end.

G'day Inte,

A cold shiver always runs down my spine when Fly is mentioned! Yes, price is my main beef with the brand, BUT then you look at some of the models ''escaping'' the QC process (em, perhaps that's an optimistic thought that they ACTUALLY worry about such trivial things.....) at the factory, it's like playing Russian Roulette.

HOPEFULLY, the one I get (yes, I've commited to it, I love this car, I also am a fan of BMW's), will be a good one........

FINGERS CROSSED.

Best Wishes,

Rob Wessling.

always liked the csl, always seemed a bit lairy, so if it's resonably priced I think I may do the same.

Problem is though with my dad having had BM's for over a decade, it's sort of a mope situation with scalex.
although I will have a fast ford over a BM anyday, unless were talking the E30 shape

My Beemer arrived this morning from SP Hobbies in Spain (thumbs up!), what a car! Yes there are a few flaws in the tampo printing, particularly around the blue/red stripes - but this car has soooo much more!

Firstly the motor is mounted in the front, the underside of the chassis includes such detailing as the exhaust outlets and hoses which go towards the rear wheels.

The interior demands closer inspection with instruments, gear stick and I guess indicator stork extending from the steering column. The Driver is being held in place by a full racing harness, that extends into the rear of the car, nice!

The car sits really low, and with its wider wheel arches and shark-nose bonnet gives it an aggressive stance, it could almost scare other racers off the track.

Can't wait to put it through its paces tonight, a bit shaky detailing but all in all nice on Fly for bringing out something different!


This car is for anyone who already owns a FLY/GB Track Lancia Montecarlo, Capri or even the Carrera 40th Porsches, in actual fact every slot jockey should own one of these - what a car!

Hello Rob,

I hope I'm not over stepping the mark here or embarrassing myself but I would be happy to help you with Fly cars if you like to keep the cost down. I know how it feels, want this car, want that car, damn it too much $$$$$$$!
I can supply these car for quite a bit less than 'normal' retail.
