  4. RIALTO MODELS IMMINENT ARRIVAL!!!

     

    I have had a large order of the rare and beautiful Rialto models on order for many months.

    I have now been told by Janet Miedema, proprietor of Rialto, that the order is almost ready and will be on the way to me very soon!!!

    Here is a breakdown of the order:

       

        4 x Aston Martin DB3/3 Vignale coupe.

       
    1 x Rover Zagato, white

       
    2 x Jag Mk2 Coupe, metallic grey

       
    2 x Jag Mk2 Vicarage open Drophead, blue

       
    2 x Jag XK140 Zagato, white

       
    1 x Jag XK150 estate car 

       
    2 x Bentley Mk6 Pininfarina open Drophead, silver

       
    3 x Bentley Mk6 Pininfarina hard top Coupe, blue

       
    1 x Bristol 406 Zagato Short Wheelbase, red

       
    1 x Bristol 406 Zagato 2+2, red

       
    2 x AC-Bristol Zagato, red

     

    Rialto models are very hard to come by, and not very often seen, as they are all built to order. Rialto always think "outside the box" with their models and concentrate on models that were produced by the great styling houses of the likes of Zagato, Pininfarina, etc.

    Many of the cars that these models are based on were motor show one-offs or were produced in very small quantities.

    Rialto models are like those original cars = very rare and very beautiful

     

    Regards & a very Merry Christmas to all.

    Frank.
