MARCH 26, 2014

Lots of model news for you today.

Word from Europe this week is that Spark will model nearly the entire  2014 Formula One grid (the exceptions being Ferrari and Force India) in 1/43 scale. Most of the versions will be modeled from the season opening Australian Grand Prix. We especially look forward to seeing the Martini liveried Williams. We'll post ordering information soon.

Spark has just released their 1/18 scale version of the Nissan DeltaWing that ran at LeMans in 2012. We expect delivery early next week. There is still time to reserve one for immediate delivery at the original issue price of $199.00. Click HERE.

2012 LeMans DeltaWing - 1/43 Spark

The photos below feature the new 1/43 scale models from Spark (click HERE for the full list) that are due to arrive here early next week along with a restock of TSM's 1/43 scale Chaparral Set #1 and the 1/18 scale Mario Andretti Lotus 78 'Launch' version. Response to last week's Email Update for these two new TSM offerings was enthusiastic, to say the least. We still have a few of each available. Reserve by clicking the links above.

We also have a few pieces remaining from last week's big shipment from Spark, including the first of their 1/43 scale Indianapolis 500 winners, David Hobbs' Steed Lola T-310, Joe Buzzetta's Nurburgring winning Porsche 910 and a very sweet 1960 Corvette convertible, in red, of course. Check the whole list HERE.




A few weeks ago, we passed along a Replicarz announcement that a second, 'Original Orange' version of the 1911 Indianapolis 500 winning Marmon Wasp would be produced. 


That project has now been canceled. 


On the bright side, Replicarz has announced their intention to produce Limited Edition 1/18 scale resin replicas of the six historic Indianapolis 500 winners seen below. No release dates have been announced, but you can reserve any or all of them by clicking HERE.



The Gurney Eagle Formula One Car by Dave Friedman

Here's the deal of the month, if not the year: In 2004, GMP published an 84 page photo history of the All American Racers Eagle Formula One project as a companion piece to their 1/8 scale Real Art Replicas model of the 1967 Belgian Grand Prix winning Eagle Weslake V12. 


This hardcover, landscape format (8.75" x 5.87") book book is filled with original black and white Dave Friedman photos (79 in all) that follow the Eagle F1 car from early construction stages in 1965 through its brief but glorious Grand Prix career from 1966-1968. The book also contains a complete list of F1 race results for AAR-entered Eagles. 


Now for the deal: We recently acquired a case of mint condition copies of 'The Gurney Eagle Formula One Car' and can offer them to you for just $15.00 each plus shipping.

1/18 GMP Lola T-70s 
This morning, we acquired a small collection of mint-in-box 1/18 scale GMP Lola T-70s. None look like they were ever removed for display. We're also offering a 1/18 scale Jack Baldwin Hot Wheels Camaro from GMP in excellent condition. Check them all out HERE.

A fresh shipment of DVDs is expected to arrive from Duke Video any day now. There's still time to reserve a copy of 'Nine Days in Summer' or any of the other new Duke titles. 


And last, but not least, our first shipment of George Follmer's biography 'American Wheelman' are also expected to arrive any day now.


It's going to be a busy Spring!


Talk to you soon.
