Why is "phonetically" spelt with a "ph"?

... It's better to be silent and thought a fool, then to speak up and remove all doubt

The complex of Newgrange was originally built between c. 3100 and 2900 BC,[2] meaning that it's aproximately 5,000 years old. According to Carbon-14 dates,[3] it is more than 500 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, and predates Stonehenge by about 1,000 years.

Yeah the website says December for both RIGA's and the Chi Sun version, and Febuary 2012 for the Breuer and Long Hook versions... So add about 3 years onto that!! Whistle

Both RIGA versions and the Breuer are 1299 euro, and the rarer Chi Sun and Long Hook versions are 1339 euro. So their quite pricey, I think after the toy fair in february they were originally expected to be in the region of 1100 to 1150 euro.

They do look great and I have to say I am looking forward to delivery! I've always wanted a model of the AMK1000-103 and it seems it will not be long until reality hits Teeth Just in time for a Christmas present hopefully.

That is the best little part of the bunch! I want a couple of those, as for the Gottwalds.......IDK, I don't like the production quantities for these now. Heck, I might not live a long enough natural life to get one anyway, if anyone has a 1 or 2 year old kid that wants one, they might live long enough to get one.

Mark I think your right about the production quantities, I just cant see them selling that many of them at those prices, especially when there are so many versions being released around the same time.

The Chi Sun version will probably sell quickly as there are only 30 units being made, but 350 seems a bit high.

I agree, good that I don't want a Chi Sun version. As for the regular ones, 350 is too many. The one draw to higher priced collectibles is a low production quantity, not only do I want to pay for details, but some exclusivity, as well. What was the first Sarens LTM1800, 120 pieces?? It took 3 years +/- to sell out, so good luck with these.

I will be buying one, assuming I live long enough. Unless you want the Chi sun version at 30 copies, you don't need to commit.

Alright, I'm not looking for the chi sun version but other...definitely the first version like the real deal.
Never heard of the Riga modern version livery?? Any real picture for reference? I flip through all gottwald books, didn't remember seen any so call modern version! Fiction? No, no fiction model for me...
And yes, is those axles steerable? Very important!!
Next version into my consideration is either breur or long hook.
