The GT40 by Meng
Hardly any details are known about the 1/12 scale model that Meng is preparing of the Ford GT40 Mk.II. A few months ago they showed the box design, a few weeks ago they uploaded images of the 3D designs, a few days ago they showed images of an assembled model and yesterday they provided us with an estimated sale price and possible supply date in Europe, scheduled for the end of the year. And on the record, this is all we can tell you at this moment... :)

But off the record, we can tell you that we are looking forward to the moment we have the model on the table!!! The boss has already started clearing the assembly table to make room for the new kid. Although we will have to make use of that patience of which we scale modelers boast so much: we are seeing and suffering many delays and changes the product release date so it is very possible that we will have to wait a little longer.

We are overwhelmed by emotion and a lot of questions pop up in our minds: will there be decals to make other versions? will there be different versions of the model? is it going to be as awesome as it looks? Can't wait for it! : D

In the meantime, don't panic: you can pre-order your scale model at SpotModel right away, while you can also take home some fresh novelties to make the wait more bearable. :)
