Who do we need to talk to get a 1/43 model off the ground. ZS261 would be nice.

Edit: Spark & IXO prices make sense.

The Captain MUST have contacts in this area. WHERE IS THE CAPTAIN ???? :shout:

I know he has had dealings with IXO, they used some of our photos for certain Metro models. I suppose its all down to numbers ,how many they think they'll sell.

Re: Help - WSR ZS Racer Model?

Wont sell any, if they dont make them!!

When you go to BTCC meets all thay want to sell is F1 merchadise, that really pi55es me off! All it takes is one brave manufacturer and they will clean up at BTCC events!!

I tried to get in on selling framed photos of BTCC cars, the vendors were not interested, told me F1 stuff was what they wanted to sell.

Well if they are priced similarly to the spark models I'd be after a few; 2001, 2002 (SnR and AK), 2003 and 2004. I make that 5 I'm after :D

Good point Nobby, and here's me thinking of limited display space when more cabinets could be bought (or Elaines Beanie babies got rid of ;))

Re: Help - WSR ZS Racer Model?

Hmm, think I'd need to take out a loan for all 12 of the models as well as the real car when I get one! :eek:


Has anyone spotted what the guy that owns www.btcc-racing.com did to a Honda Civic ? Basically he got the road car model off eBay, stripped it and sprayed it in Team Dynamics colours and stickered it up! Well impressive looking if there were models of a 45/ZS road car I'd commision this guy myself!

Onyx went bankrupt with the rest of the vitesse brand in 2001 unfortunately. Ixo as far as I remember need 1000 models to be ordered and payed for for them to build a custom model. Spark or Sunstar may be worth a try though.

It's something to do with Nissan meaning 23 in the Japanese language or something like that. Can't remember exactly. The Skylines in Australia and the ETCC used to have it as well.

I'd love for there to be a ZS model available. I'd certainly buy some to add to my model collection. I've got lots of Super Touring models, but i'd like some modern day examples, especially the MGs.

Re: Help - WSR ZS Racer Model?

I'm not sure how true this is about Spark producing MG roadcars, but i read it on the BTCCPages forum.

Hi all a quick follow up to my post about the Carl Breeze Alfa 156 BTCC. I have found out today that Spark will only be producing 750 cars. I have also found out that Spark produce MG road cars and there is a possibility that MG BTCC cars could be produced as well. If you are to buy a Carl Breeze car, whoever you buy it from tell them you want to see more of these cars.

Re: Help - WSR ZS Racer Model?

Had a reply from Spark.

They would consider a run of 1500 pieces.

Would you all buy a ZS at near cost price of £22 each!
