Hi, anybody know of a model? I'm having a nostalgia moment
Well, there was talk of a Mach 5 model a few months back when I introduced Claudio Dias, the designer of the old batmobile model found at this site: http://www.paperian.com/webdude/guest.htm , to Russ Martin, a Dallas, Texas Radio DJ and Owner of not one but two of the fullsize Batmobiles and.......... a full size replica of the Mach 5.
However, I havent heard from either lately and dont know if the Mach 5 has or will be designed. But if Claudio Dias does design it, you can rest assured it will be a fantastic looking model.
I will try to get in touch with either or both of them and see what I can find out.
Have a good day,
Greg aka GW
Claudios a bit busy with his new daughter Maria Luíza who arrived Dec 12 2005. (The poor guy probably hasn't been to sleep yet...)
His current project is the Ghostbusters Ecto1:
thanks for the update on Claudio. well if he has a new daughter then yeah, I can see where he may not have been to sleep in a while lol.
If you talk to him, please congratulate him on behalf of all of us here in the forum.

this reminds me of the helicopter pilot flying in Seattle in the fog, and he asks directions from a Microsoft employee.
Essentially all correct answers to Dean's initial question, but nothing he can do anything with.
it is a simple Mach5, but for the time being, it just might help you out
Thanks for the info and links all. It's surprising considering the popularity and longevity of the show that no quality models exist of Speed's car when I can easily find more obscure subjects, but then again that was the same for the Batmobile until recently. A licensing issue possibly. Off topic I find that Ertl makes a fantastic diecast 1/18 scale Mach 5 with all the nifty gadgets that apparently function like the "real" thing. It's a little pricey at about $30-$40 shopping around but it looks bang on.
Check out www.entertainmentearth.com for the $25 playset....comes with Speed Spridle and Chim-chim.
You know, this BBS does have a search facility. You might then have found this:
Hi I'am new. But let me tell you something. I'm a paper model geek. This is great to find a tribe like us. Earl
Good news GEEDUBBYA!
sweeeeeet!!!! Too bad he didn't convert it into a paper model.....
that is his next model after Ecto 1
Just a quick update:
Claudio has posted photos of his initial build of the Mach 5.
