Smile 1:18 SVX scale model in production

.
A few teaser pics from the manufacturer in Switzerland that I have been working with for the past months.
I have provided them with a lot of photos , research materials and subtle details that they would need.

All this was done without ever seeing a real SVX, although they were offered one as reference
to take photos, notes and measurements and scans.

Limited production. It won't be cheap, but it won't be wrong. Available early next year. Approximately 10.15" long

Will most likely be a Pearlie.. With the Claret a close second.

I will keep you informed




He knows the wheels are on backwards

This wasn’t my idea at all. By the time I got involved, the majority of the work was done. They had trouble with the cowl area below the windshield, wipers, the complex curves of the spoiler, tc. Alsp provided them with paint codes for the 1992s, interior colors, wheel colors, wheel direction, automatic seat belt operation, what could you see looking through the lower grille under the front bumper.

Countless photos of the spoiler, both on and off the exhaust tips, equipment that was and was not on the IS-spec 1992 cars, Even the center part of the trunk lid, that is painted 2 different colors on the Pearlie.





As changes are implemented, they forward updates for my approval. They had to delete the third seat belt buckle in the rear seat. The rear belts are missing and need to be added, as they can be seen through th e rear window. But the front seat belt by the floor will never be seen.

They love this level of detail and svxcess is more than happy to oblige. There will be full instrumentation inside and probably the SUBARU on the center caps.

Roughly made up of 100 separate pieces. There probably will be a limited production run of 350, individually numbered chassis.

Preliminary estimate on price are between $175-200 USD each, plus shipping from Switzerland. There will also be clear display cases to order. I will let everyone know when it is possible to pre-order. Paying ahead assureos you will get one and a 10% discount.

I will keep every one informed. I am keeping this off of Facebook and SVXNATION. Otherwise they. could sell out quickly to gust anyone. Please do not post over there.

Here is an example of their work.

This is a 2000 Subaru Impreza GT Turbo.

Correct down to the finest detail, including instrumentation and fabric seat belts with metal ends.
Correct Factory rally Blue paint.

Re: 1:18 SVX scale model in production

John, thank you again for your immeasurable contribution to all these types of projects.

I will definitely be on the list to buy. I would also agree to the glass display case and preferably multiple color options to match my own SVX

Re: 1:18 SVX scale model in production

I was in contact with the company this morning. I told them earlier that the rear spoiler was a little tall tall and thick in the center.

They said that one of the areas of difficulties to work on was the thickness of the rear spoiler. After discussions with the engineers at the factory, they feared that the resin would break easily during casting, assembly or even transport. So they needed to make more tests.

Also, as it will be painted, we would see the final effect after polishing and the paint layers. Waiting to see the final result and would discuss further together afterwards.


I replied to them saying:

“You always have the option of deleting the spoiler. As I said, the car was originally designed by Giugiaro without one and we’re all produced that way. All cars left the factory

The spoiler was added at the dealer and was not even designed by Giugiaro. SUBARU had it designed independently, which infuriated Giugiaro.

This is the original website for ItalDesign, the 50-year-old company owned by Giorgetto Giugiaro, designer of the SVX”
