Very cool! I'm in New England myself, and have thought about trying to acquire this one. I just can't quite justify the overseas shipping, as it alone is almost enough for a whole subscription. That, and with the release of the Ford v Ferrari movie, I think it would be a huge mistake to not bring the GT40 to the US market. I'm hoping its announced as a US release soon.

FYI, you could probably email the Iphone images to yourself, and it should ask you what filesize you would like to send, Small, Medium, or Large. You can use that to downsize the image size, and then just upload the downsized image from your email.

This info was posted on the deagostini model space forum earlier

"Hi All,

Many of you probably do not know that Altaya of France is a "division" of DeAgostini D.R.O. BUT, MOSTof you know about the GT40 that Altaya is selling...

With this in mind, you can start planning your outgoing expenses for 2020. Sometime in the (presumably)first Quarter of 2020, DeAgostini will be releasing the Ford GT40 in both the UK and US markets, with the rest of the world to presumably follow.

There were some unanticipated delays, but this is a "fer shure" thing!"

TonyB: I hope you are right on this, I will wait and see however--DeAg USA never offers all the additional Bonus items or display cases.

Awesome, this is the news I've been waiting for. I'm also curious to see what Agora Models will announce next, as they've already shown hints in one of their pictures of a mold, and I can guess as to what else they may have taken the time to measure while already at the Shelby museum for the Super Snake. My guess is they killed two birds with one stone.
