How many issues? they are always loath to tell upfront.

Twelve monthly packs at £99.99 per pack. There’s also an option to have it delivered over 24 months.
Click the pre-order button and it gives the payment options.

Hello everybody and happy new year,

It's clearly not a new tool, but the same as the GT500 De Agostini made by ELIGOR for the those issues.

I hope that the plastic suspensions will be modified.

And for a Super Snake I guess the engine will be the one of the Ford GT 40 that just started in France

As far as I know, the GT40 has a different engine. The Super Snake has a modified version of the V8 427 engine that was fitted to the GT40 MkII. I’m expecting the engine to be a new product as I’m not aware of an existing 1/8 partwork using it.

im afarid after seeing some of the first parts of this model that it is the same as the Deag one. But if they get the parts out on time (i especially like the 1 year option),with good/quick responses to any problems, and improved the problem areas i hope/wish them every sucsess.Due to already having the deag mustang i wont be building this one, but hopefully they will have an offering that i want soon!

I'm glad I'm not the only one that saw deep similarities between the two kits...

I don't know what you mean. It's clearly a completely redone form.

Ok guys, I think you've made your point. The kit is produced by the same company as manufactured the DeAg Mustang. As far as I know, there is only one manufacturer who does all the 1/8 partwork cars. The Super Snake has the same body shell, so there are inevitably going to be some identical components. After all, it would be a complete waste of money to manufacture new moulds when ones already exist.

Hello Everybody :

In fact there is at least 4 or more manufacturers for 1/8 parwork cars

The Mustang is from ELIGOR like the VW beetle (it's also the Legrand kit), the Combi, the R5 Turbo, The E-Type, the GT40 and may be more (Alfa Duetto, lancia Delta) and then the Agora Model is from Eligor. At Nuremberg, ELIOR has shown a Cobra which is probably (but not confirmed) the second model for AGORA

IXO is the manufacturer for : the 2CV, the DS21, the Citroën H-Type, the 300 SL, the Traction, the Jeep, the Camping Car Pilote C25D, but also the M20 Pobieda and the FSO Warsawa, the Percheron (and probably all tractors), the R8 Gordini and the Berlinette, the 911, but also a 917K Gulf (complete kit) and a 205 GTI for 2020. IXO has also worked for Pocher but I don't know which models (I guess the Ducati but not the Lamborghini's)

Kyosho is the manaufacturer for the Countach and may be but it's not certain the GT-R (R35)

SPARK is the manufacturer of the 917K tested in Germany but it's not the same as the IXO one

There is a fourth company for the Celica, the FSO Polonez and the Harley from Easy Rider but I don't remember the name.

I don't know who is the manufacturer for the Ferrari's (LaFerrari, F40LM and 250 GTO) but it seems to be only one for those 3.
I also don't know for the Aston Martin, the 240Z, the Cosmo or the Nissan GT-R Hakosuka

Hope it help

Thanks for that 27flight. So two companies share the majority. I’m not surprised by the Pocher IXO link as the SL300 was originally slated to be a Pocher kit. I suspect it was simplified for the partwork version.

Is the 4th company Lemke by any chance? I think they are the face behind the LeGrand kits...
