I am wondering what happened or is happenning with the pettion to the die cast manufacturers to produce a 1/18 scale model of our cars. Any updated info would be great.
Thanks.

The issue is dead in the water. The manufacturers we've contacted either have declined to involve themselves or neglected our request.



It is a sad day in Bullittdom.

I don't know why we've been ignored. I think that there is a likelihood that as many as 10,000 of these would sell. Maybe it's a licensing issue, but the $bucks$ seem to be there to support it.

You do have an option. I saw a 99 cobra relesed by revell today. The ambitios(SP?) could modify it to resemble the bullitt. You could kitbash with the already availiable 98 salleen for the 2V. the front end would be the major challenge. If I can stay home for more than a month, I might try to make a conversion kit to be produced in resin. I'll go by the kits this weekend and see what I'm up against.

Yea, I've been thinking of how to accomplish a model as well.

I'm not sure how the wheels would work out.

The basic body seems pretty easy to compile from parts of other die-casts.

Good luck, and thanks for giving it a whirl.

model for now.

Thanks for that Cleartastic!

I guess I'll have to settle for the 1/1
scale now. Hey, at least I can actually
drive it!

That is great info, where did you get that?
