As usual, the flood of information from Spark Model has kept us pretty busy lately.

Last week, we posted an advance order list of 40+ items that Spark intends to produce over the next few months. A few days later, we received 15 new 1/43 scale models covering a wide range of subjects. No sooner did we get this shipment unpacked when we were notified of 42 new models that just landed in the US that should reach us by mid-November.

To try to keep all this information straight and to take advantage of the improved photo reference we now have access to, we've added two 'old fashioned' Pagemill 3.0 pages to that we will update as needed:

 - The 'Spark Announcement' page will list items that are in production along with the pre-order deadlines given to us by the US Distributor. 

 - The 'Spark Recent Arrival' page will list the models from each incoming shipment along with the date expected or date received. Each item will be linked to our Online Shopping website. 

As before, you will also be able to access a list of the items in each shipment directly at the Online Shopping website.

If all else fails, pick up the phone and dial. I'm here 6 days a week.

With the sheer volume of new Spark releases, it's more important than ever to us to have the proper quantities of each new piece reserved. Your pre-orders are more important than ever.

Entries will be added to the contest with each purchase. We will also add entries with each advance order that is filled during this period. One name will be drawn on Monday, December 1, the other on Christmas Eve. 

Enter early and often!

Stance & Speed is set to release the 5th book in their series profiling classic racing cars. The subject of this Monograph is the iconic Gurney Eagle-Weslake F1 car. It features the photography by Peter Harholdt, a text by Bob Varsha and a Foreword by the All American Eagle himself.

A limited number of copies will be flown in for Holiday delivery. 

Priced at just $17.95 plus shipping, it could be the bargain book of the season. Reserve HERE.
