Hey there!

Wow! Some nice cars in there. So is this to be a subcription type affair with the cars coming in four or so parts?

Can anybody help me to get one of the Vipers? I like Vipers you see
and the one featured here is very nice indeed.

PM me if you can help out please.

Ta,

Julian.

This is a series of magazines, with each magazine having parts of one of these fabulous Fly models. It will take four issues of the magazine to collect the complete parts for each car, so 48 issues in all. However, please note that these are genuine Fly models and will not be available to purchase in the standard RTR format.

On closer inspection of these models I notice that a couple of them have been previously released:

Ferrari 512S Coda Lunga 24 h. Le Mans 1970 - Originally released as part of Team 02 set.

Lola T70 Thruxton 1969 - Originally released as C32, although not weathered.

Also some of the cars have appeared in previous Fly catalogues:-

Porsche 917K 1000 - Buenos Aires 1971 - Fittipaldi / Reuteman - Listed as one of the Campeones series with a figure of Emerson Fittipaldi.

Lancia Beta DRM 1980 "Fruit of the loom" (White) - Listed in the 2003 catalogue I think.

From what Aaron's saying these cars will not be released as individual models and therefore will become difficult to obtain in the UK, and expensive!!!!

Do you know if you can subscribe to this magazine in the UK ?

With the Miticos SCX cars it was not possible because they use the Scalextric branding, but should be no such issue with Fly.

Hey there!

Lets hope we can subscribe in the UK, I quite like the idea of a new car parts dropping through my letter box every week for almost a year.

I'm assuming that the partwork would be once a week and not once a month which would mean not completing the collection for four years!


I would hazzard a guess that the subscription will pivot on price for a lot us though, if indeed it is available here.

What would be your top price?

Cheers,

Julian

P.S. Fly's website is back up.

Heh Julian,

Thought you was working today ?


Anyway , I think I would go upto £25 a car - so £6.25 a week , it looks like it is 4 euros a issue in spain - equating to about £3 a issue - if a spanish friend on this forum could confirm the price it would be great.


Would be even better if someone like Getslotted/Slotcity could sort
out a bulk subscription for us UK guys
(hint !)

Each issue costs 6.95€ (its just the first one that is 3.95€) giving a total cost of 27.80€ per car - if you live in Spain.

I knew about this (and the new SCX) collection a few weeks ago and have been looking in to whether we can stock them. I'm hoping to have something confirmed shortly (but only hoping).

Will people be interested though?

The whole collection or just certain cars?

How much will you pay?

Jon,

I am definitely interested in those Fly and SCX collections. Not all cars though. So the price I am willing to pay will depend if I have to buy the whole bunch or simply the ones I'm interested in (7 or 8 in the case of the Fly collection, 5 or 6 regarding the SCX series).

There's at least 8 of the Fly cars that I would like, but I would be prepared to get all 12.

Looking at how much they are in Spain I would say up to around £25 would be reasonable, but that would depend on demand and import costs.
