Hi Andrew.
The Ferrari F40 is out in Japan and Italy as full run, I already subscribed and I received 2 packs: the first 5 issues.
Maybe you mean it is a test in UK?

They tel me the F40 is on hold , anyone know anything. I ordered via Supercarbuildup but they now are called Modelsupercarcollection , based at same address in Ringwood, Hampshire .

Re: 1:8 Ferrari F40 fiasco

Despite numerous attempts I cannot get a refund on the 1/43 cars substituted for my 1/8 F40 subscription. I am having no success in getting anything other than quotes about their terms and conditions concerning refunds. Totally unfair as they did not supply the F40 that I ordered. Does anyone ha e a direct email address for a senior manager within the UK Panini organisation. I am nearly £400 out of pocket.
The boxes started arriving in April and I did it open them until November as I was building the Mustang and VW. Combi
To my horror they sent a 1/43 series of cars but will not refund as I was outside the return period. Obviously as I had assumed the deliveries were F40 parts as I have never been informed that the F40 was cancelled.
My treatment has been nothing short of disgusting. I have asked twice for proof that I ever ordered the 1/43 cars but so far al I keep getting is a rehashed return and refund policy.
The name and email of any senior person in Panini of their distributor in the UK would be helpful

That's a real bummer MODENAMAN. I'm sorry to hear you're being treated so poorly. This makes me even more hesitant than I already am to attempt to subscribe to this build and have a mail forwarding service forward all the issues to the US. I think I will hold off for know, and just keep my fingers crossed that it eventually comes to the US market or gets posted for sale on Mavzol. Please keep us updated if anything changes.

Bfam46: The F40 competizione is being offered in the US sometime in 2020 by Eaglemoss--- I was told, you can preorder here:
https://en-us.eaglemoss.com/diecastclub/F40competizione

When I preordered over a month ago, the confirmation email said it would be shipping in 2-3 weeks, however when I called them for shipping status that has changed to 'sometime in 2020' -this may mean it will ship, or maybe it won't;-one never knows with Eaglemoss in the US-- I had placed a preorder for the Batmobile last year, that never appeared and now it is gone form the website.

No way! I've spent the last week looking for a way to get this, and obviously never found the link you just provided. How did you find it? Are you on an early access list?

All I see when I visit the normal US English version of the Eagle Moss website is a coming soon list containing the Ghost Busters car, Eleanor Mustang, and Star Trek Enterprise. No mention of the F-40.

Thank you very much for letting me know! And I have to ask, now that I realize how bad I am at finding these...do you by chance have any information about the new Centauria Ferrari 250 GTO being released in the US? That's another must have for me.

Sweet! Do you actually receive them weekly? Or did you get issues 1 & 2 together?

Anybody in the US start getting theirs yet? I called customer service last week and they told me it would be shipping “soon,” whatever that means :? :shock:
