[PICS] Pontiac Farago CF428 by Avenue 43
In his post #28699 David crowe said this new Autocult (a.k.a. Avenue 43) model was on its way to him from Europe.

Well, I took a fancy to it and ordered one, and it arrived just 3 days after Carmodel dispatched it, which was pretty good going.

Very nice model, looks accurate and the metallic red paint is handsome. Finish and assembly are flawless and P/E trim neatly applied.


Some of my photos were taken in shade, making the paint look much too dark and "solid". This one shows the subtle metallic shade more accurately.

Dash and steering wheel are nicely done

and the wheels are a treat

A lot of Autocult models, however admirable, are a bit too way-out for me, but I do like this one.

I have sent an article with more details of the background to the real car and comments on the model to MAR Online but I think it will be a week or so before Maz can upload.
