Any ideas when we might be able to place orders for a convertible kit ?

Interesting to note that the inside profile of the bumpers didn't follow the profile of the bodywork. Maybe we are working to hard to make ours fit.

I guess when people look at replicas they look at faults and differences, when they look at originals they character and differences

I think you are right and unless you had pointed it out I wouldn't have noticed.

There are other details which could be replicated to make your car stand out from the average such as the Frenched in indicators and bonnet badge. Quite an easy mod before paint but adds a lot to the final product.

Default Sighting

Friday 17th June at 11.04am I saw THREE 275GTBs driving along the B4009 west from Streatley.

They were in a small group of 6 Ferarris; one in Azzuro / silver blue; one in Rosso red and one yellow . . .

Never seen more than one at a time before, so makes my week.

Tribute and Nubodi have gone very quiet on here. They were keeping us updated at least once a week. Some of the other regulars seemed to have gone too which is a shame.
When I sign onto this thread there are often 50+ visitors but maybe only 4 or 5 forum members on at any one time. This site still attracts lots of people so it should be worth the while of anyone posting.

I was down there a few weeks ago
The 275 still had some revisions to be made - all in the details.

Chris and Dan were busy making kits. They have numerous builds and developments on the go.

You have to remember, Tribute is a small company.
Development of new models costs money.
Selling kits generates money.
They have to balance the two.

You are unlikely to hear anything from Nubodi since the pram/toy ejection episode.

Excellent news, it looked pretty much ready for moulding ages ago. I do hope you haven't been wasting time on the rust bucket Escort!!!

Are you going to offer GRP bumpers as an option . The "real" ones look fab but cost more than the donor Z3 !

This is laser cut from 4mm thick stainless, about 8" long. The cut is a bit rough and will need tidying & polishing, but looks good.
