Hard to believe, but the European segment of the 2013 Formula One season is nearly over. The September 8 Italian Grand Prix at Monza will be the final race on the Continent before the Circus decamps for the Far East, Middle East, Texas and Brazil for the final 7 rounds of the season.
Time for us to list the 2013 Minichamps Formula One Collection
in 1/18 and 1/43 scale on our Online Shopping
website. Minichamps will be producing 1/18 scale diecast replicas of the Red Bull, McLaren, Lotus and Mercedes entries, adding Sauber, Force India and Toro Rosso to those teams in 1/43 scale. We expect to see deliveries beginning in the '4th quarter' of 2013. Check out the listings HERE
. Remember, World Champions sell out quickly. Reserve early.
Mattel again will be doing the Ferraris. We'll have those for you shortly.
One other advance order for you to consider today. Classic Carlectables will follow up their excellent 1/18 scale Vern Schuppan Formula 5000 Lola T332
