  7. Hello all,

    the first run of 30 models of MC07, the 1968 Cortina Mk11 1600E, Series 1, sold out on pre-orders, before the model arrived and I had a chance to list it on the website.

    That initial run, featuring bullet-style wing mirrors, has now been superseded by the second run, arrival of which is imminent.

    The second run will differ from the first run, thus:

     

    No wing mirrors.

    Addition of an RAC badge to front grille.

    Addition of chrome "GB" plate to bootlid.

    Twin red rear foglights replaced by twin white rear reversing lights.

     

    The previous Velvet Blue model has now been superseded with a new colourway: Alpina Green with a saddle interior.

    The Dragoon Red model now features a black interior, which replaces the previous grey one.

     

    Arrival of the second run of models is imminent, but because of the painstaking process of handbuilding these exquisitely detailed models, only 24 will arrive:

     

    12 x Saluki Bronze

    6 x Alpina Green

    6 x Dragoon Red.

     

    As of today's date, pre-orders for 11 models have already been received, so if you wish to purchase one, contact me on T: 01244 320761 to place an order as soon as possible.

    Go to the "Majesty Classics" category on the site, to see photos of the new 1600E models.

     

    Regards,

    Frank.
