As those of us who collect 1/43 scale models are painfully aware, prices have reached a rather high level in recent years and prevented us from adding some great models to our collections. We've passed along these concerns to the US distributors of the most popular lines, which (perhaps) had something to do with the lack of the 'annual' spring price increase this year but today we're doing something more:

We are rolling back prices 20% on more than 130 1/43 scale models (134 to be exact) from our inventory, adding them to the 1/43 scale Clearance Sale section of our Online Shopping website.

I n addition, order 3 or more models from that list by August 22, 2015 and we'll throw in free UPS Ground shipping for the Continental US. Just type sale0815 in the Discount Coupon Redemption Code box on page 2 of the online order form. 

To review the 134 new additions to the 1/43 scale Clearance Sale, type sale0815 in the search box at  Online Shopping or click HERE

Happy hunting!

Another impressive 1/18 scale diecast arrived from Minichamps this week. It's the Canon Porsche 956L, as driven to an 8th place finish at LeMans by Jan Lammers, Dr Jonathan Palmer and Richard Lloyd in 1983. The model features a removable tail section, opening doors and a nicely detailed engine and cockpit. We have a few more photos on our Facebook page. 

Price is $179.95 plus shipping. Order HERE.

Word from Replicarz is that they have made significant progress in their highly anticipated 1/18 scale STP Paxton Turbine as driven in the 1967 Indianapolis 500 by Parnelli Jones. Only a few changes were required on the last 'sample' delivered by the factory and according to 'Mark's Blog', Replicarz expects to authorize final production soon and promises a '4th Quarter, 2015' release.

The resin model will feature a removable engine cover and detailed engine. As expected, the price has been adjusted to $249.99 but all of that increase (and more) is going into producing this important model to the finest standards possible. 

Your can reserve one of the 1/18 STP Paxton Turbines with us HERE.

If you wish to confirm an existing order, or update your information, please drop me an email HERE.

We expect a quick sell - out.

It was good seeing so many of you at Road America last week. Lots of big news coming out of Wisconsin over the weekend, including the long awaited return of Indy Cars in 2016. 

A word to the wise for those of you thinking about attending the big June 24-26 weekend in the Kettle Morraine. Within hours of the official announcement, local hotels in the Sheboygan area started filling up (we made our reservations before leaving for the track Saturday morning!). Prime camping will probably fill up early as well. If you don't want to drive in from Milwaukee every day or sleep in your car, book now.  We haven't seen this much excitement since the old Can Am days!

That latest shipment from Spark Model is due to arrive on Monday. Several items are pre-sold out, and l imited quantities are available on the rest. Check the complete list HERE

We'll be posting a new set of Online Auctions next week. 

If you're in Monterey, I'm sure you'll have a great weekend. As for the rest of us, we'll do the best we can!
