Some interesting new 1/18 scale models are set for release by AutoArt this Spring:
First, we have the Alfa Romeo 33 TT 12 that dominated the World Championship for Makes in 1975, winning 7 of 8 races. Three race-winning versions are on the way. All three feature removable bodywork, opening doors and high detail, consistant with AA's goal of 'museum quality' miniatures.
The Alfa will fit nicely into any collection of 1970s Group 5 or Group 6 Prototypes.
For video game aficionados and fellow Flash Gordon fans, AutoArt will produce several versions of the futuristic Red Bull X2010, designed by Adrian Newey for Grand Turismo 5 as his vision of 'the ultimate racing car'.
The first 3 versions are due to hit the US in May.
To take a bit of the sting off AA's new pricing, we are offering a 10% Advance Order Discount on these exciting new models to Email Update subscribers on orders placed before May 1, 2013.
To receive the discount, type AASpring2013 in the Coupon box when ordering online. If you wish to order in person or by telephone, you must mention this offer to receive the discount.
