After what they have promised and then finally shipped I would wait and see how this turns out. Using the Martin Bower reploica as a master is a good step, but how it gets interpeted and detailed will tell.

But hold on a minute, Martin Bower didn't build any of the original 44" Eagle models did he ?

Forgive my ignorance here, and I am being sincere in my lack of knowledge, but I do hope they are not meaning 're-casting' from someone else's work?

Get the Eagle One blueprints, and get your own people to build a prototype that doesn't deviate from them, and you will have a very successful product on your hands! Apart from freely available photo reference, those plans are all you need. I cannot see why they haven't got on with this.

29390; are you suggesting that 16/12 actually do some work of their own to produce this? Shame on you.

I think this is the whole problem. They don't appear to want to build their own. If they could borrow a 44" and copy it for tooling up, it would be a much more desirable option for them and enable a copy to get into production faster.

So basically, if you've got a fully built 44" Eagle transporter lying around doing jack, give 16/12 a call! I'm sure they'll make it worthwhile for you!

Sometimes these threads have a serious lag between 'Submit Reply' and the actual Post.

Back on Current Topic- I think 16-12 should produce their own masters instead of lifting another's work. That is what a reputation is based on- creating an exact replica of a filming model and charging a bizzlion dollars for it, not interpeting another's work into simplified molds and charging a bizzlion dollars for it.

After what was done with the Thunderbirds I really do not think their method is working well. If these were smaller replicas like the earlier Diecast line and around $40 each I could see it. When they left that market and ventured out into te Uber-Collector world there is less tolerence for errors and shortcuts IMO..

Default Is Sixteen 12 Gone?

I know this thread has been idle for over five years, but I didn't want to start another thread that essentially asked the same question as this one did many years ago. Hopefully someone will still see this post.

I've noticed the last few weeks that the Sixteen 12 Collectibles web-site has been down for "maintenance". Does anyone know if Sixteen 12 is defunct?

Don't know but I stopped caring when they ditched the diecasts and toys for those resin replicas.
