I'll have to try and get this one, missed out on the 9 car but prefer this livery anyhow.

 

Hi Blue, one of our Sponsors "Melbourne Model Raceways" still show the #9 Moffat XB in stock.

Well, the wheels are more accurate for a start. But the 'pinstripes' on the nose are a bit heavier than the original. Hopefully it's a preproduction version. The grill still needs a little recess compared to the bonnet. Can't complain... :)

Was just looking at Ebay's new Scalextric listings and this car is up for sale in the US already. Hopefully we will see it downunder before too long.

Back in September the release date was around the 27th October for the UK.

 

The US seller only has scalextric promo shots so doesn't actually have the stock yet.

 

I find hotslots132 as a pretty good resource of knowing what is arriving each week in the US.

 

I'm expecting mid-November for US/Europe and perhaps end of November for Australia.

Nice Mark. I agree. Rear window does look strange. Hmmm...I'll have to find the right DVD and check it out.


Computers. They'll never catch on.

Stubbo can probably illuminate us more, but the Scaley model rear window has a kind of hump in the middle, almost like it is a 'w', and in this case not well fitted at the base. The real thing was purely concave, if slightly flat in the middle. You will find the grill is the biggest gripe, as it should be more recessed, something you can improve with a file.

 

BUT! It is a really good job, as Miveson has so well illustrated. Great colour and details.

Great looking car and the detail looks spot on

 

I'd say someones been a bit heavy handed putting the windows in .....

Maybe a warm hair dryer to rectify the rear window?

Is the rear axle / wheel still offset to one side like the #9?

Thanks for the pics Mark

Mine has been preordered with a site sponsor for months, and am happy to wait for my package.

Would the 33 Falcon have been made from the same moulds as the 9? Judging from the pics this is not the case. There are to many flawed body lines on the 33 to be the same as the 9... Maybe the camera lies?
