This weekend, Automodello owner James Cowan announced cancellation of two 2012 issues.
The two resin cast models cancelled...
Hispano-Suiza H-6C Dubonnet Xenia (1:24)
1935 Duesenberg SJ Speedster Mormon Meteor (1:8) - Note that the 1:24 will be made according to schedule
About the Hispano-Suiza, Jim explained: "Last week at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, Minichamps announced production of this same model in 1/43 and 1/18 resin cast. Based on this new information, we have decided to shelve this model indefinitely as we donít believe the market is large enough to support an offering in 3 scales."
Legacy Motors customers who made deposits in the Hispano-Suiza project will be given their choice of refund or switch to the just announced Minichamps 1:18 version of the Hispano-Suiza Dubonnet Xenia, comparably priced and based on the same car from the Mullin Museum.
The gigantic 1:8 version of the Duesenberg was cancelled due to lack of early commitments.
