As has become the norm each year, Ultima’s presence at Stoneleigh last weekend was particularly impressive with fine examples of GTR and Can-Am plus bodyshells and everything Ultima-related, in a nutshell.

The Hinckley-based manufacturer even had a customer turn-up in his helicopter, landing in the grounds of Stoneleigh Park – as you do!

In more Ultima news, you can now buy an Ultima GTR or Can-Am kit for just £166.80 inc VAT. Before you choke on your Twix, let me clarify. The company has superbly detailed 1/12-scale radio controlled versions of their cars available now.

These cracking little cars are ideal for existing owners and/or enthusiasts, big or small and are particularly suitable for an office desk! Dimensions are 320mm long x 160mm wide.

The package doesn’t include the motor or running electrics as these are available to a specification and power output of your choice directly from along with tuning upgrade options.

Modelling skills, accessories and paint will be required to complete.

Ultima’s Richard Marlow told me that there is an indoor 1/12-scale race series for these models.
