We'll be back up to full speed in April after a couple weeks sheet time in March. Already, several shipments are inbound for early April delivery:
- We expect delivery of three 1/18 scale and one 1/43 scale Ayrton Senna Collection Lotus releases in early to mid-April. You can reserve
- Three Limited Edition Minichamps releases: two 1/18 scale Porsche 918 Spyders and a 1/43 scale John Watson Brabham Alfa BT45C are scheduled to arrive on Monday. Small quantities of each are available
One other bit of 'news' from the modeling world: It's being reported on one of the major diecast sites that TSM has cancelled their 1/18 scale McLaren MP4/4 and McLaren MP4/5 releases due to problems producing resin models with removable parts. If and when TSM decides to confirm this with their dealer network, we will bring you the full story.
Automobile Year - English Version Canceled:
As some of you are already aware, the English edition of Automobile Year #63 has been canceled and the annual will only be available in French. As a result, our usual US suppliers are not carrying this year's book. We will be bringing a shipment in from Europe next month. We will probably order a few extra copies, but if you intend to continue your collection, we strongly recommend that you reserve a copy in advance. You can do so
. Pricing should be pretty close to previous editions.
Below are some photos of the remaining models from this week's 1/18 scale Spark shipment and some odds and ends that arrived while I was away:
