Would love to have this one! Would go great with my other rare resins, the 1/24 '63 Skoda Octavia, 1/24 Fuji Cabin 3 wheel car, and 1/12 Subaru 360. This is what I hope to see more of, Vintage UK and European 1/24 cars of the 40's through the 70's that are what the average family rode in, not the Ferraris, Porsches, VW's, racing subjects, etc that are so overabundant today. Would also like to see the well done Record 1/24 Floride Caravelle reissued (too afraid to build my original) and other Record kits (if they made any others)that were made in France in the 60's.
I totally agree here... WAY to much emphasis going to cars that while beautiful, were small in terms of sales and overall market impact. For example, I'd much rather see a good kit of a Fiat 124/128/131/132, etc. then another Ferrari F-whatever.. Mind you I am not anti-Ferrari but just want to see more common vehicles kitted.
Here are a few examples of such that are sadly unavailable in 1:24/25 kit form to my knowledge:
* BMW 02 series - 2002, 1802, 1602, 1502, etc.
* Ford Escort Mk 1
* Fiat 124 Coupe
* Ford Capri Mk 1 - a real kit, not those toylike RS kits of the early 70's..
* Opel Kadett B or C and Manta/Ascona A or B, etc. Opel models in general in these scales..
I'm sure there are many, many others but my mind is drawing a blank right now..
Anyway, great kit of the P6.. Hopefully more of them will be available in the future?
