999 of each colour and LHD, RHD being made only. Limited edition which is cool.

Available in Grellow, black, ivory and green only.
NO BLUE .... ARRRRGGGHHHHH!!

Ive pre ordered mine in grellow which im still happy about. Blue would of been ideal, but oh well.

Not cheap, but ive been following there progression for a while now, and they are well made and very detailed.

A lot of stores have now sold out undortunately, but still a few left i think.

£200. Steep, but Suzuki want £80 for the small one. :ohmy:

I might well have bought a blue right hand drive one, but I'm old enough now to know that I wont ever get round to painting the wrong colour blue.

Looks like they have made some matchbox sized ones for £20 too.

That Tomy one I have was ok for £6 IIRC, but it is the kei version, without arches.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

I like it cus it replicates the real one i have nicely. Its not shown in this video, but it has a metal ladder frame chassis underneath, and the wheels, bumpers and grille come off, ready to accept the mod grille i have on the real one etc.

I like anything limited edition too.

TWO HUNDRED QUID!? That's like an entire sheep, for an 18th scale model. I'm doing something wrong.

You certainly are, £200 is only 2 hours of a builder's time. :)


£1000 a day the last building work I had done worked out at. Wish I earned £1000 a week, never mind a day...

I still find £200 a bargain for a sheep. Thats a lot of lamb kebabs right there!!

Whats the best part of a sheep then? A fillet?

Plus the steering wheel is on the wrong side. I have never seen a sheep with the steering wheel on the wrong side so sheep are better value :)

£80 for the Suzuki one? I bought 2 on ebay for 16 quid each and I've just checked and there are plenty in stock and also available from other sellers. I also bought a BM creations small one for 12 quid from Japan which is brilliant with a spare set of tyres!

Glad to see it not just me who's a big kid! Got them lined up under my telly in the man cave.
