Can anyone out there verify that the lastest Fly 908LH livery is genuine? I've not been able to find any 1:1 pics of the car. I thought it might have been a '69 Le Mans test car, but I'm not convinced.

I would imagine it to be a genuine livery of some kind. It looks too good to be fictitional.

I have to admit, I have searched various reference points and cannot find it listed. I have sent a message to Fly to let me know where they found the information for this car and I will let the forum know as soon as I get an answer.

Now you come to mention it I dont have any record of this one either. In fact the more I look at it the more it seems to be a fake one. Fly always state the drivers names and the race on the previous test cars but not this one. I love the Fly Classiscs
and have every one but I do not buy the pointless Limited editions/made up liveries, so does anyone out there know?

Which number is it, and do you have a picture? It is easy enough to find out.

I have all kinds of connections with seriously competent Porsche historians. All I have to do is to show them the picture and thay can tell me if real or not.

I don't know if this would be the one you're refering to? The #00, 908 Flunder LH. Fly A 412:



So, bring on the truth! I have faith in you Mr.TSRF

The version on the flyer is NOT the A412 they finally released!

I'm betting it's a fake (so I don't have to get one!
) Still one of my favorites, just rips on my track!

On the subject of questionable liveries, what on earth is the Fly C73 Ferrari Coda Lunga Silver Edition all about

It looks like some amateur with an aerosol can of Halfords Silver wheel has painted them. Is this another ficticious livery from Fly? Or perhaps because we are in Olympic year there may be a Bronze & Golden Edition to follow.

Almost forgot the RRP is £41.95 for a model with unpainted wheels and non printed tyres.

Everybody should punisch Fly by not buying all these fantasy decorations at much too high prices.
They make plenty wonderfull cars with historical correct decorations and this includes road versions.

I would welcome the addition of lower spec models from Fly such as the silver Ferrari 512S Coda Lunga if the price was reflected in the level of spec.
We have an obsurd situation here where the retail price of this car is much higher than all previous releases of this model (ltd Editions excepted). I am sure that if Fly want to carry on producing new models from old tools then a range of lower spec/lower price cars would find a gap in the market place to be used by racers & modellers who want to produce their own liveries or use the cars as donors for kit building etc.

Thats a good idea. If they provide a solid or fake livery it should cost less. im not going to pay more for a fake. Nor less.

And then they (FLY) make the highly desirable, historically relevant BMW CSL Art Car and its 2 times plus a fiver more than the silver Coda Lunga (never mind the "Standard" Bimmers)!

It's not as though its a fancy 25 year old single malt they are making!

Imagine if Johnnie Walker added a splash or two of fancy paint to its Red Label and doubled the price...the head of Diageo would be held for treason and face execution in the Kings Court (or at least be sent to the penal colonies...)

oh wait that's where they send the Scaley cars with the darkened windows and no drivers (Aussie ONLY V8s for those that don't know what the heck I'm on about).

Weird, then the slot enthsiasts around the world buy them and import them back to the homeland at twice the price!!!

Weird, maybe Fly is just feeding the monster after all.

Oh well, I'm out of fire for now.
