Schuco has announced a second version of their beautiful 1/18 scale Cooper T-51:

Stirling Moss drove his Rob Walker liveried #14 Cooper T-51 to victory in the 1959 Italian Grand Prix. Due to the efforts of Moss and Sir Jack Brabham, Cooper won the 1959 Formula One Constructor's Championship - the first rear / mid - engined car to do so. Moss led the most laps in 1959 but would finish 3rd in the 1959 F1 Driver's Championship behind Brabham and Tony Brooks.


Schuco will produce the Stirling Moss Cooper T-51 in a Limited Edition of 1500 pieces. A tentative release date has been set for the '2nd Quarter', so there's a better than even chance we will see this model in 2015. 

The strong Dollar provides a bit of good news, Schuco has set the price at $240.00, significantly lower than their previously released 1/18 Coopers.

Advance orders are being accepted HERE

Schuco's previously released Cooper T-51, Sir Jack Brabham's 1959 World Championship winning mount, is now sold out but we do have a small quantity of Sir Jack's 1960 World Championship winning Cooper T-53 in stock. Order one by the end of February or while supplies last and we'll match the $240.00 price of the new release. That's $40.00 off the original price. 

You can grab one HERE.

A fresh shipment of models from Spark and TSM is due to arrive in about a week. One of the highlights is the model pictured above: This Martini Lancia LC2 won the Spa 1000km in 1985 in the hands of Mauro Baldi and Bob Wollek. It has been produced by Spark in a Limited Edition of 500 as part of their Belgian National Series. The model is featured on the cover of Spark's 2015 Catalog and is already becoming quite hard to find in Europe. We have 3 pieces available, priced at $199.00 plus shipping.
