I got my call yesterday morning that the new 1:18 is waiting for me.

Rabbits what area are you in?, as many QLD and Vic shops received their supply yesterday. Id assume NSW would be getting theirs the same time. Anyone who missed out on this model should give Kristy @ Coffey Ford a try.

NSW. I went in only 2 days ago and she said to me, before I'd even said hello, 'probably 1st week of April I've been told' and this shop is a big dealer in 1:18's so they'd get looked after.

It's OK - I'm on the list so there's no danger I'll miss out - I'm happy with that. Not completely desperate to put the 5th Betta car in the line, put it that way!!

Rabbits, i think you will find she will have them in stock by tomorrow. I was under the impression i would be getting my stock next week, but it ended up being this week, lol. With approximately 16 new Classic 1:18 scale releases due this year not including the V8 Supercars, they'd be keen to get them out as their shipment arrives....

cheers for that - I might duck in tomorrow night after work, being late night shopping and all - I'll let you know how i go!


***EDIT - just checked ebay - doesn't take long does it? I count 7 x 1:18's of the Bathurst Winner on there already

***EDIT AGAIN!! - Got an sms from the shop ( they do that for me ) to let me know the car is in as of yesterday, so I won't just be making an inquiry tonight - I'll be picking it up - happy days!!!

****EDIT ONE MORE TIME!! - Got It!!! The car looks magnificent, the replica trophy looks magnificent, even got a little lump in the throat again looking at the photos on the box and reading the write up about the event. Who'll ever forget that race....
They've done a great job presenting it with the silver box and the fancy COA - I got number 74 too by the way - the lowest they'd had in the shop so far!!

I asked about the runner up car - the LNOWDES car - and she said the rep would be out this week to give her the full list of what was being released this year - so I'll let you all know!

Pays to shop around though - I was checking out one shop online yesterday and there was a Skaife HRT 1:18 - the number 50 VS (?) online $345, at the shop I buy from? $175.

Also helps to buy from someone who doesn't know what they're selling!!! I got the Lowndes/McConville Bathurst HRT VT (only 1008 made)- I've seen it in one shop for $500, saw it online yesterday for $450+postage - I paid $125 at Oran Park last year because the young girl was a bit flustered.
There was no price on it so she just looked at the price of one of the other models on display - I think it was a Forbes AU!!! and just said $125 - I had to try my best to not giggle like a little girl.....

Rabbits, glad you like the Lowndes model, i've had a few people complain about the size of the trophy though, lol. Anyone who is getting the Geoghegan Super Falcon, expect it in July now.

I don't have room to store my models so i don't get many 1:18's. I did get the 2006 Bathurst winner in 1:43 though. Looks good even in that size.
