For those that are interested, the first tooling proofing samples have been reviewed and the tooling has been signed off by Murphy Models. Bachmann have been asked to bring one of the bodies to the Bangor show at the weekend . Hi-res photos are available here!
Just to be very clear - they are just tooling proofs and not pre-production models so not all of the detail parts have been added (e.g. horns, grills etc), nor are they painted, but they are still excellent. Released still scheduled for late 2007
