Greetings!

In recent months, 1/18 scale models have become hot items once again. 

- Collectors are excited that Replicarz has resurrected and upgraded the old Carousel 1 die cast tooling and announced some great new models for this year and beyond. They also presented us with all new resin models of the Brawner Hawk and the soon to be released Marmon Wasp

- Spark Model's beautiful 1/18 scale resin models continue to sell out almost before they arrive.

- Minichamps occasionally delivers gems like the Jaguar XKR GT3 that arrived here last month. Their 2011 Formula One releases are stunning.

- The new Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari 458 Italia is impressive (3 versions in stock).

- AutoArt's Jaguar E-Type Roadsters and beautiful new Alfa Romeos - the 1967 33 Stradae Prototype (one left at the pre-release price) and the TZ2 - have been well received.

And we're just getting started.
 
Late September saw the arrival of the first of two long-awaited 1/18 Martini Porsche 936/77 diecasts from TSM, the #3 Ickx / Pescarolo machine, along with a pair of LeMans winners in resin from Spark - the 1968 #9 Gulf Ford GT40 and 1986 #1 Rothman's Porsche 962C
 
The Ford GTs disappeared in a heartbeat, as did nearly all of the Porsche 962Cs and 936/77s.
 
In the next 4-6 weeks, we expect the arrival of these new 1/18 models. You can order by clicking on the links:
