There’s a new brand on the horizon: Stirling Scale! Their mission is to offer collectors unparalleled value with the most detailed, fully functional models featuring complete metal exteriors.

Stirling Scale is filling a gap in the market by providing fully-opening models with refined detailing inside and out. Each piece will feature intricate elements such as functioning wheels and suspension, textured surfaces, full carpeting on the interior, and high-quality 3D decals and emblems.

Their first project is a true British classic: the 1:18 Aston Martin V8 Vantage 1985. This model will be available in Red, Silver, and Green. Future releases include the 1:18 Porsche Carrera GT in Red and Silver and the iconic Ferrari Enzo in Red.

The plan is to have a working prototype of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage by the second half of 2024, with the full production model expected to be released in Q4 2024 or early Q1 2025. Despite today’s ever-escalating prices, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage will be priced at approximately $285 CAD or about $208 USD. Considering the promised detailed craftsmanship, this price is more than appropriate.

You can pre-order the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. No down payment is required; you pay when the model is ready to ship!

We are eagerly anticipating a review sample from Stirling Scale. We will share our thoughts and photos with you as soon as we receive it. This is exciting news, folks! We’re absolutely looking forward to their first release. Well done, Stirling Scale!

Don’t forget to suggest future models; the Gordon Murray T50 is already on the list. Cast your vote now!

    Sounds good! I’d be curious to know how they relate to the AutoArt Aston Martin Vantage, since they already made a fully opening one. Then I’ll wait for the Porsche Carrera GT.

    Their website includes a poll, where you can vote for two models that they may select. I voted for the Jaguar XJ220 and Ford Capri Mk3. Other suggestions are welcome as well. The XJ220 fully opening could be a hit!

    So glad to see more brands doing the opposite of resin and sealed. Also how are they making a Ferrari Enzo? Do they have a Ferrari license?

    Weird to launch with 3 models that have already been done in diecast. Is there really much demand for that Aston Martin? The AA version ended up in the bargain bin so surely anyone that wanted one already has it? Nothing I’ll be buying in those first three so at least it’ll let me see whether they’re any good. A good XJ220 would be a must-have.

    Welcome to the party, Stirling Scale! I agree that the Aston Martin V8 Vantage is not exciting the long-standing collector, but will showcase what quality Stirling Scale models will be. The Autoart is anything than in the „bargain bin“, so younger collectors will welcome similar quality at more affordable prices.
    I applaud the opportunity for collectors to vote on future projects. The Jaguar XJ220 and the Gordon Murray T50 fully deserve to get top votes. I would want both in addition to a Bentley Turbo R. With the T50 they will have to be quick, though, as other manufacturers will foreseeably tackle this. The XJ220 and Bentley Turbo R might be on Almost Real´s list too, given their history with both brands. It is high time, these two were made in high-end diecast metal.
    As a collector of British Motors Stirling Scale is right on my theme!

      I’m pretty sure I got my V8 Vantage for about €100 in CK’s sale, and they had all colours available. That’s bargain bin, it ended up half price like many other AutoArt models that don’t sell well. They may be harder to find now but if retailers couldn’t sell those from new it suggests there’s not much market demand. And I don’t think it’s iconic enough as a car for “younger collectors” to consider it desirable. If you wanted it, you would’ve picked it up in those sales.

      I’ll definitely wait until I see the quality of the models before celebrating too hard. I’d be far more excited if Almost Real announced the XJ220, despite the price.
