Hi Tom,
Thanks for the heads up.
The MCG Capri looks cool and is good value. MCG have quite a few mark 1s in their catalogue, this is the first mark 2.
I don't have any 1:18 scale models in my collection, but I might make an exception for this!

Yes, 1/18 takes a lot of space. I prefer 1/43 or smaller, too.

I check MCG's RS2600 Capris and they look very good. If the Mk2 X-Pack will be same quality, it will be great model.

Apparently, the release date of the 1/18 Professionals Capri has been delayed a bit, but should be available soon.
The cheapest I've found is £70.99 from an Ebay seller.

That must be including postage. Sending a 1/18 scale model to Czechia can't be cheap, you'll probably be able to find a seller closer to you though.

Yes, the model does look good, and I'm very tempted to break my own "no 1/18" rule!

If I didn't have my 1/43 SOO 636R, I would definitely buy this 1/18. :)

The 1:18 scale Professionals X-pack should be available shortly, my local dealer is offering them at £60, which I believe to be, in legendary forum fashion, reasonable :) If anyone is interested just let me know.

Looks brilliant, can't recall any other Professionals Capri in this scale either.

MCG also did 1/18 Escort RS2000:

Looks like they do only Doyle's cars. :lol:

Yes and I believe that Escort to be the first 1:18 scale Professionals model. With the aforementioned Capri being the first Professionals Capri in that scale too I think.

Not quite, these are custom display cases but they show which 1.18 scale Professionals cars are available first.

This is all MCG 1/18?
