Nemos Car - League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Will I ever build this? If I do it will be out of the box stock.

It's so rare I'll have to decide. This is my holy grail of model cars.

I waited 11 years to snag this perfect and complete kit with perfect box art.

Not everyones cup of tea but it sure is mine!!!

cool! i thought i'd like to get a model of this car, but didn't know anyone had done a kit of it. i'm thinking it's expensive...

at least there's some good videos around for checking details.

Scarce as "Hen's Teeth.

I waited 11 years to find this. They only made one run in production and sold out in 2 days.

Why they never made more seems to be a mistery.

At one time collectors were paying $1100.00 - $1200.00 for these, but over the years the price has come down to something more reasonable, if you can find one.

It's a fabulous kit with vacuum metalized antiqued black chrome parts and antiqued bronze chromed parts. The kit was really thought out well before it was created.

Someone in China has replicated this kit in resin but a lot of the detailed separate pieces of scroll work aren't separate pieces in the kit.

The price I saw was $131.00 and the other suppliers cost was $138.00 shipping included. The kits looked very nice.

The car is for sure "out there".  I would love to see your take on it.  If anyone can push this design it is you.  I hope you do build it.

Best regards,

Mark
