I've heard the release of this has been delayed due to the Bahrain GP being canceled, my guess is it will launch around the Australian GP. I've had a few issues with DeAgostini but I've always managed to sort it out in the end. And they are running a very impressive build diary, see the link -

I'll have to do the McLaren as I'm a huge F1 fan and go to the British GP every year.

Shame i might have to give it a miss i am doing the db5 which is a expensive thats £6.99 per week if i did both that would nearly be £100 per month .. :shock: :shock: :shock:

What is stopping me at the moment is deagostini .. I have a 1/2 build sptfire it was deagostini's fault they would send parts and they arrived damaged then you had to argue with customer services to get replacements i did serveral times and then i had a letter saying they where cancellimg my sub to me because i was abuseing there system asking for too many reissues.. By this time i has around 8 - 10 issues short and still was waiting for 3 to be replaced.. i lost my faith and gave up.. and said never again to part works

The build site is taking me about to the main page.. :roll:

Would it be perverse to try and build this up as Heikki's car, just to be different?
