News Archive - 2013


Vacation over. Time to get back to work. As first step I just have launched Saab 96SS kit in my store.
Later this month Saab 900 Sedan and Saab 900 Notchback finally will be available as resin kits via my Saab 900 Configurator.
I continue my work with Novanta, Phoenix, 9-3 Turbo-X Sedan and Combi... and last week I decided to start one more project. My second non-Saab model, but I will keep it in secret yet.


Griffin Models Novanta

Finally I'm ready with the final shape of Novanta. It took too much time, but don't judge too quickly - this car's shape is way too complicated, and the lack of information makes the project even harder...
I expect this model to be available as kit right before Christmas.


Griffin Models Saab 96SS

First finished 96SS is ready. This project took less than 2 months. I received the order from NEO BROTHERS at the SaabFestival in Trollhattan. And the kits were ready for the IntSaab 2013.

Later this year 96SS will be available as ready-made model.

My plans for the rest 2 weeks of AUGUST 2013? Deserved vacation!
I will proceed all orders, placed during this 2 weeks starting September 2nd 2013.

I'm finishing the Friction tester this week. 7 models will be buit to finalize the 12 ready-made models. And only 3 are available of these 7. Others were reserved long time ago...

Continue my work with Novanta, EV-1 and 9-5 Sport Combi. Too many projects, all important :D
Sorry, I was too busy these days - had to send all orders that I received before, during and after the SaabFestival... that's why the ready-made DreamTrip Toppola model isn't available yet via my site. 5 models were already sold. I will let the model for sale next few days - only 7 left.
One more Enduro will be released next week - the Blue Enduro as resin kit.
