Alexander Aristides Cronvall Do you know what has happened to their 1:20/24 series ? They're only releasing 1:43 and 1:12 kits from what i can see ?

Steve Wilson Yes Alex...
They didn't renew their license with Ferrari to produce 1:20 and 1:24 kits...
The notice on their website says:

Kars Jans Yes Alexander, i already miss MFH for their Ferrari kits. Hope they will start producing them again later.

Steve Wilson I'm still wearing a black armband...
I've been emailing MFH announcing my displeasure on a regular basis, hoping they'll get fed up with me and start producing them again...
I NEED MY FIX...
Jake Kilshaw Yes it is, Steve. It's just VERY expensive, VERY hard to find (at a good price), and probably quite difficult to build...

Steve Wilson If you want it Jake...
Clean your Dads Car every week for 2 years, coz! the price is going to get worse.
The kit's going to get harder to find... As are all MFH Ferrari 1:20 & 1:24 kits
6. March 2014, 19:36
Kars Jans Not that hard to find, was it really? I have had 2 of them for sale for 116 GBP each.

Steve Wilson Hi Kars...
Great price!!! But...
For a 14 yearold, even 116 GBP is expensive
7. March 2014, 08:02
Kars Jans Yes, i know. But they are not hard to find, yet.
7. March 2014, 08:41
Steve Wilson Not yet... No!!!
But you watch, they will be, that's why I told him to buy one now...
All these MFH Ferrari 1:20 & 1:24 are only going to get harder and harder to find and the price will get higher and higher!!!
Alexander Aristides Cronvall The flat 12 engine is a beauty both to hear and look at. but the sound from the Aston s straight six isn't bad neither but the Ferrari engines are much more beautiful to look at.

Steve Wilson Oh! Alex some years apart, but our tastes are very similar. In my time I was lucky enough to own a Triumph Vitesse 2 litre. Now I know its not an Aston, but it did have a "Standard Straight Six". Arguably one of the best engines ever produced, if not for its durability. But yes I agree the Aston S6 was a songbird of the Motoring world. I have a CD of some of the greatest Engines ever made complied by Nick Mason (Pink Floyd) and someone else, I listen to it sometimes when building my models sad I know, but I like it...

Alexander Aristides Cronvall The Vitesse 2L is a cool car. i like the front of it, something about the headlight thats gets me i bought and restored a porsche 911e 72 that was rebuild in the late 80s by DP motorsports owner josef zirkelbach after his company went broke. the only existing 911 with that specific carbon fiber body kit. it didn't have the soul of a british or a Italian sports car. but there's something with the older cars that the new cars just can't deliver, the sound of the fuel pump when you turn on the ignition, the mechanics talk to you in a way that's wonderful. and yes ! passion for speed and Pink Floyd - A foot In the door are probably the 2 best albums ever made for driving,building,sleeping,eating,working...
IMPORTANT 1/20 Ferrari 312T4[1979 Belgian GP] infomation for customers.

Please accept our apologies for such things happened.
A replacement photo etch sheet will be sent.
Please kindly register in the form for the replacement.
The replacement sheet will be sent in early April.
Steve Wilson Hi Alex.
Yep!!! Kyoko Hiro has redeemed himself fantastically. A guy on F1M was building it and posted a thread about a fit problem he was having with the part. News spread like wildfire, I emailed MFH immediately to let them know, they then responded equally as quick thanking me... Within two weeks most of the purchasers of the kit had been notified, if they had contacted MFH. Two weeks later everyone who reported the problem was sent the correct part, I received two, others did too. I have to say Mr Kyoko Hiro didn't even quibble, he just got on with putting the wrong right, extremely quickly... If anyone here who has the kit and has not contacted MFH about this, do it now.
