""The Britten Company have produced a superbly detailed die-cast kit which reflects the glory of the original, of which only ten were produced." I'm assuming this is the kit site says original price was 174,90€ which is like 230$

On the bench, under dust.........1/8 scale model T hot rod (fabrication), 1/16 scale shelby cobra 427 (final paint/detail work[body paint soon]assembly), 1/25 scale 1955 corvette ZR-1 (fabrication).

Update - After the severe earthquakes in Christchurch all the remaining stock as well as the moulds for the kit were destroyed. If you have one unbuilt it could be worth really big money!

Nice job on a super rare kit. I've always loved the look of this bike being from just across the Tasman from the Kiwi's! Pretty ahead of it's time for a bike that was handmade in the guy's shed! He cast the engine cases in his wife's pottery kiln!

I have a new unbuilt example of this wonderful kit. I may consider parting with it if the right offer came along. I don't get on forums very often so best to email me

I'm located Sydney Australia but I ship kits internationally all the time.
