Not a huge amount of exciting news lately- so here's today's snippet.

Gorgeous!
Only 75 to be produced as RTR, with 150 over all.

QUOTE Not a huge amount of exciting news lately

Over what time frame?

24 hours?

5 days?

Many folk would say that the news over the last 2 weeks has been pretty incredible.

Just curious but how do the licences work on these limited run resin models?


The negotiations surely have to be at a different level to those for the mass market manufacturers?


Please don't give any commercially sensitive information away if folk do wish to post a reply.

I think two weeks is perhaps a little old for 'news' in the journalistic sense.
Got to stay fresh!

sweet car!

I've been watching its development on the maxi models site. Seems our friend Adrian Norman (of Scalextric) has some hand in this operation...

Here's the URL for those that don't know it:

http://website.lineone.net/~adrian.norman/...ls/MAXi_frm.htm

BUT @ £199 I just can't justify it. I bought a Racer Ferrari P4 @ £125 and love it, although it was swallow then order...

The Racer has slot.it mechanics and runs well which is important to me as none of my slots are shelf queens.

I would be curious for someone who owns one of these Maxi Models to post a review of how these beauts run (in case the lotto comes in!)

Cheers, Ken R

Watch this space..


In fact Mr KenR - YOU do a full review on the Racer P4 and I will swap you with a full review of a Maxi Model.

Sound fair?

Sounds fair!

In a couple of weeks, my track conversion over to the 4 lane version will be complete.

Then I will do a full and complete review along with time tests, dimensions, weight, new photos, info about the prototype etc. It will be a Slot Forum exclusive! How's that!?

Until then, here's the link to my Racer page, more of an initial fan endorsement than a true review. Those on SCI may have seen this link before.

My Racer web page

Cheers,

Ken R
