#446934 I can't see how that fits..........

If you can get license to produce a model in 1:12 scale why not in 1:18?

It would seem to me that somebody - maybe Shelby - is sitting on the license.

I remember years ago talking to the folks a Shelby Collectibles when they came out with their version of the 427 S/C and they said they had an FIA spec roadster in the works - that was like ten years ago.

There are no shortage of Ford models being produced - you can't turn around without tripping over a Mustang model and a bunch of different manufacturers are doing Ford GT's from MKI's to the newest incarnations.

The 1964 & 1965 FIA spec racers are the notable exception. If I was a betting man I'd bet that Exoto will not build them - they have enough law suits against them as it is.

Shelby Collectibles is the most likely to build an actual diecast as they already have the tooling for their Daytona Coupe in hand so they are already covered on most of the small parts and the engine, drive train & wheels.
