    Hi Lee in Texas,I think the 1/43 P4/5 kit is limited to under 100.They are offered built and unbuilt but price may vary due to how hard it is to get the model.It is so limited it would be considered art.Grand Prix Models in England does try to carry them.

    Here are 2 more Model Factory releases from last year:

    Here is a site for modelers that some of you may not know about.It has many detail
    shots of racing cars(mainly F1 and sports prototypes).
    Go to www.gurneyflap.com

    They have many Ferrari detailed photos listed.

    It is a non profit site.He is always looking for high quality detail photos to put on the site.

    By the way,we will be having a model racecar contest for the 3rd year running
    at the Ferrari Expo/Art/Model show on April 12th,2008(Saturday).It will be located
    at continental Ferrari/Maserati in Hinsdale Illinois(Chicago area).
    Go to www.kaz43.fotki.com
    for photos from the last 2 years events under Ferrari Expo contest 2006 and 2007.

    This is not to take the NEW MODEL KIT THREAD off topic.I thought some of you might
    enjoy these sites.

    Fujimi has entered the 1/20 arena long dominated by Tamiya with two plastic kits of the 1982 126 C2, one in San Marino trim, and one with the crazy rear wing raced at Long Beach.

    Although not all that new, having been released (in Japan) last fall, I have seen no commentary on these kits, and haven't seen them yet in stores in the U.S. Does anyone have any experience with these kits?

    And HobbyLink Japan shows that Model Factory Hiro and Studio 27 have both released upgrade sets for these kits.

    Here is a photo of the Fujimi 126 with the Hiro "trans kit".The transkit has almost all the
    parts for the kit and costs as much as most resin kits.It will help you build a museum quality model!!They give you a new metal tub and resin body along with many machined and metal cast parts along with alot of photoetch.The clear resin brake scoops help alot.Superb stuff.


    For those of you who are affraid of this type of kit just look at it as several smaller kits that you
    join together at the end to form a super model.Wheels,engine,tub,wings can all be made into
    sub assemblies(mini kits) that you join to make the model.

    Will these be full-detail kits with engines?

    Engine or no engine, I'll be in line for the TDF.

    It would be nice to see some 50's and 60's road legends previously overlooked by model manufacturers, including 2+2's, in detailed 1/24 kit form.

    The TDF and 330LMB will be full detail engine kits.

    They still have alot of the important race cars to do.
    Maybe someday.What car were you thinking of?Remeber they have to
    sell alot of kits,not just 15 or 20.
