Cool! How authentic does it look? :huh:
OK, I've found the company who's distributing these, and I talked directly to their manager of sales. The problem for those of us that have an RF car is that they can't get you your own number because it would involve opening the packaging, which "devalues" model cars for some collectors.
So, I've bought one anyway (which I suppose has a one-in-399 chance of being my number) with the intention of trying to trade it online for my number, which is 300. Worst case scenario is that I have one with the "wrong" number.
I'd suggest that others do the same and post to this thread for the purpose of trading.
Since the distributor is not a forum sponsor, I'm not posting their website. PM me if you want it. Here is their description of the model:
Only 399 of the 2007 Arctic White Ron Fellows Z06 Special Edition Corvette will be made available to Corvette enthusiasts. We have produced only 399 of the 2007 Ron Fellows Z06 Corvette in the 1/24th scale with a metal chassis. Each piece is consecutively numbered on the Ron Fellows Z06 Corvette chassis. This striking Arctic White Z06 features all of the same great style as the original Corvette. It also features opening hood, trunk, and doors to show off the two toned Ebony and Red interior. The engine compartment is also nicely detailed.
Here is RF #258 in 1:18 scale. It started life as the Velocity Yellow Hotwheels Z06 and was transformed for a good friend and fellow DC crew member who owns the real thing. I really like the "427" emblems on the hood and the "JAKE" C6R decal on the rear glass. :cheers:Speaking of the RF edition, I wonder if the next C6R from Autoart will be the white Ron Fellows edition. That would be sweet. Based on this initial thread, I wonder if AA will release the stock RF Z06 edition in 1:18th scale.
The pics of the Ron Fellows Z06 is of my car..... Jon did an excellent job doing my model for me.......... I would recommend anyone who is thinking fo having a model done of their car look at the detail work Jon did on my car.
I plan on having him do two more models for me soon. Again Jon Thanks for the wonderful job you did on my car - it's on my desk at work and I LOVE IT........ BTW I'm going to the NCM tomorrow to pick up a C6 rear fascia in Artic White to hang in my shop :cheers:
