A 1/18 scale diecast model of an iconic Ferrari prototype race car from the early 1970s will be in the hands of collectors perhaps as soon as early 2018. Acme Trading Company has announced the revival of GMP's Masterpiece Collection and it's first release; the
#11 Sunoco Ferrari 512M as raced at Le Mans in 1971. Scroll down for additional information.
Acme Trading Company is re-introducing GMP's Masterpiece Collection with a 1/18 scale diecast replica of the Kirk F. White Sunoco Ferrari 512M, campaigned by Penske Racing and driven by Mark Donohue and David Hobbs at Le Mans and other venues in 1971. Perhaps one of the most iconic prototype racing cars of that era, and one of the last to be modeled in 1/18 scale. Features include:
Opening Fuel Fillers
Plumbed and Wired Engine
Real Rubber Tires
Fabric Seats and Seatbelts
Over 800 Individual Parts
Diecast Metal Body
Removeable Front and Read Covers
Fully Detailed V-12 Engine Poseable Steering
The #11 Sunoco Ferrari 512M, as raced at Le Mans in 1971, is being developed at this time and an ETA of January 2017 has announced by the company. That may be a bit optimistic, as most arrival dates are in this hobby, but this one is going to be special.
