Hi All,

I've deleted the previous topic of this name to give you this.

To close out 2019, here is the news I was teasing:

Many of you probably do not know that Altaya of France is a "division" of DeAgostini D.R.O. BUT, MOSTof you know about the GT40 that Altaya is selling...

With this in mind, you can start planning your outgoing expenses for 2020. Sometime in the (presumably)first Quarter of 2020, DeAgostini will be releasing the Ford GT in both the UK and US markets, with the rest of the world to presumably follow.

There were some unanticipated delays, but this is a "fer shure" thing!

On that note, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Mark Adams

Fantastic news! I've been hoping this one would make it to the US market. After all, that's where the GT came from BigGrin

That’s a great color scheme Roy.

Are there any other pictures of this kit floating around beyond the ones on the French site? I am curious to get a better look at the engine
