Does anyone know if there is a diecast of plastic model JH running around somewhere? I would like one for my collection of cars that I've owned and also thought to make some cool little 3D crystals with one.  As some of you know I run the http://www.gt40s.com forum and I made some 3D GT40 crystals that you can see here:

http://www.gt40s.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/80396/an/0/page/0#80396

I made 100 GT40 crystals but would probably make far fewer JH crystals since volume wouldn't be high. However, a model is needed for the model company that does the 3D mapping, plus, I'd like to own a model anyhow. Any sources for JH models?

Thanks,

Ron

The JOC in the UK is selling a small pewter version that's nice and I think they also sell the Thouroughbred white medal JH. This 1:43 scale is beautiful, but is very expensive by the time it gets to the U.S., at last look was about $160!

Thanks Greg, I had not seen that.  Unfortunately, 1:43 is too small, I need something like a 1:18 or so.  That little fellow isn't much bigger than a Matchbox car, maybe twice as big, but doesn't look like it has engine detail etc. that makes the 3D crystal stuff cool.  Definitely a neat little thing but wouldn't work for the crystal.  I still might have to buy one and use for my car colletion though.  I could paint it with red stripe and add a cage too!
