    It has been proposed that a joint venture between Silas Models of France and British Heritage Models of England should produce a 1/18 scale version of the Mk 2 Cortina, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the original car, in 2016.

     

    Initial suggestions are that the model would be based on the 4-door saloon. To achieve economies of scale, the proposed 200 (?) units of the LIMITED EDITION would cover three models in that range: the 1600E, the 1600GT and the 1600 Super.

     

    No prices are available yet but the model would be up to the usual standards of Silas excellence and value for money. There will be no opening doors etc.

     

    This announcement is a 'toe in the water' exercise to judge demand for such a model. If you are keen to register your interest, please contact me for further details: T 01244 320761 or email [email protected]

    Just arrived is 6 models of an extremely rare car - the Allard K1 Woody, from Pete Kenna.

     

    A stunning model, available in blue, yellow, cream or white.

     

    Not cheap, but these models take a lot longer to build that other Kenna models because of the intricate patterning and detailing of the authentic-looking "wood" panelling and framework.Hence the price, but it is a very rare model that is not often seen. Only 6 available.

     

    Regards to all,

    Frank.
