  4. Many thanks for your suggestions. Applied Silvo and gently buffed it off a number of times until the Mark's became almost imperceptible. Great tip, thanks again!

  5. Both my front and rear screen have a few fine marks and blemishes that you can see if you hold it up to the light, they wasn't noticeable once fitted to my model so I just went with it. I have also read a lot of people having similar issues with the de agostini mustang build amd a presume most of the parts here are from the same factory? You could try polishing it with a fine compound such a jewelers rouge or silver polish or something and see if it improves at all? I totally agree that these marks are caused before the part is packed in the plant as they are securely packaged in sea

  8. Surprise, surprise I did receive my Pack 4 today. No extra costs and just a slight delay compared with before the brexit. Think luck is a factor to be taken into account as of now. But more communication would indeed be welcomed, even just a slight little message there will be a delay for x or y reason is enough for me to adapt my expectations. I don't ask and expect miracles in current situations.

  9. Hopefully they're working on opening a distribution centre somewhere in the EU. That would be the ideal situation. Its not fair for people to have to start paying am extra tax on something that was unknown at the beginning. Fingers crossed you guys hear something soon

  10. At least they could give us some form of communication around the whole Brexit situation as it looks to me there will be VAT, customs fees and duties, added to every box we receive. This would be 21% of the content value plus 22 or 30€. Plus we will have to wait almost 3 extra weeks on our delivery. Think I will reevaluate my purchase anyway in case Agora doesn't come up with a solution (they shouldn't be surprised by it as they were well aware Brexit was coming).

  12. Stage 100! The last stage!! The gives us the rear bumper and number plates. Fit the rear number plate to the rear valance Now fit the rear valance to the model. I left it upside down for this. Now add the rear bumper. This just pushes on. Moving to the front of the car, fit the front number plate. This completes the model! I think it looks stunning!! It is a big and heavy model!! I now proudly claim my AgoraElite badge 😀

  13. I believe modelmodz have a new improved set coming to the website very soon and I think they said they were made from proper dental resin this time. So keep an eye out. They recently posted about them on their Facebook groups. Other than that I don't know anyone else who makes replacements. Might be worth having a look at scaled modz and Mike Lane mods see if they have anything

  14. Just asked that question to Agora, Sam said pack 4 and 5 would be sent out this month, but I wouldn’t hold your breath. I just received pack 3 last week.

  16. Hi Felix, I lightly sanded down the bar of the bracket, added some Vaseline. Seems to have done the trick. Thank you for your suggestion

  17. I think most of us are still waiting for pack four to arrive. Looks to me they will not be able to deliver the promised packs on time for the limited edition either. We were supposed to have started the build in September but that became October so we were already 1 month behind the original plan and with the current situation we are already 2 packs behind seen we are already January. I hoped to see clear communication about this but silence is killing the positive feeling I had when joining the Agora family. Communication is key here, especially in those harsh times we currently facing.

  18. Hello it is certain that an expedition from France would decrease the costs of postage. but if because of the brexit we had an additional cost: I would interrupt my subscription and Agora would undoubtedly lose a lot of subscribers in Europe

  19. Heard rumours that the want to ship from France. Dont know if its true. In my case (Germany) taxes would raise the priz at least minimum 20%. That would be the dead sentence for Agora in Germany. So the have to find a solution.

  21. I build Concours E types for last 45 yrs and presently building a 61, Nice model although needs a few changes , Start with the seats Too flat on bottom bolster should be a little higher in front. chrome the door lock and paint the inside of the door frames body color, Door panel on inside top of door way too thick orig half that thick. , also the inside door handles are not correct shape no hook on bottom, . Rear deck panel Licence plate should be body color Not black . Windscreen posts way too thick and needs top finisher for roof. also No paint should be seen . Need more shots of Engine

  22. Good questions. Our plan is to keep the models available permanently, though there maybe future licensing issues that prevent this of course. If we know that any are going to be discontinued then we will give you all plenty of advanced noticed. Currently none of the models on sale so far have an 'end-date'.

  23. thanks Matt, this is why we have the prototype to see what can be improved. I have passed your comments on the the development team 👍

  24. Nice! A few initial thoughts from me on this prototype. like: wheels, seats, steering wheel, paint finish. Room for improvement: windscreen itself and inside of screen surround, inside of doors (where lock striker is) should be body colour not interior colour and ideally lock metallic colour. And it needs carpets. Hate to say it but looks like a large bburago model in these areas, whilst there’s nothing wrong with that as such at this price point it should be and can be better. Let’s hope some of these issues get addressed for production. If they do I may just be tempted.

  25. You are absolutely correct! Well spotted 👍. We will update the download instructions. Luckily it is an easy fix, just loosen the gear box and swap it round:

  31. Stage 4 is the inside detail to the left door. I put the first piece of silver colored trim on to the lower part of the door and screwed it n place on the other side with two MP01 screws: The door handle rests in the handle bracket. Carefully manoeuvre the door handle through the left hole on the door. The handle may fall off so take your time. Then I secured the door hinge bracket before the door handle to hold everything in place with two MP02 screws And then I screwedin the door handle with a MP03 screw tightly so the han
