Some years ago SMTS made the Alan Mann and Willment Racing Mk1 Lotus Cortinas and they have remade them for us. We are adding a sheet of decals so the kit not only make the AMR John Whitmore car it will also make some of the Frank Gardner versions and the Willment car can be purchased either Lotus or GT cars as they were raced by Frank Gardner, Paul Hawkins who also drove for Willment and shared the GT with Bob Olthoff at the Brands Hatch 6hr 1964. These are a limited release of 25 of each. Price is $90 for the kits or $250 built to order.

Apologies to anyone who ordered the RMP Jack Brabham Sunbeam Alpine from Sebring 1961 – it is now sold out and we didn’t get the second batch ordered.

We have the SMTS built Ferrari 246T of Chris Amon now in stock. This is not any specific race version but as raced in Australia 1969. Price $220 the kit will build other versions from New Zealand or the Derek Bell car at $75.

Decals are being printed now in the UK for the GrA Dick Johnson Mustang and photo etch is being done for the Camaro and Mustang.

Once we have cleared the GrA Mustangs and the Camaro, we will start on the new range of international kits. These are the master patterns we bought in from Marsh Models, Shelby Super Coupe prototype, FIA Cobra 289s from the Targa Florio and the Shelby 260 Cobra instructor car and the 260/289 road car. These are all in various state of readiness as we have changed/updated many parts from the original models.

To follow we will have the IMSA Mustang GTP cars starting with the 1984 versions. There are two distinct cars #7 and #06 raced by Klaus Ludwig, Bob Wollek, Bobby Rahal, Geoff Brabham. The 1983 versions will follow soon. Also the Brabham BT8 are well under way, there will be three versions of this kit as raced by Jack Brabham or Denny Hulme.
