FSW Weekly Edition 38/2019

This week's FSW Weekly #38/2019 latest arrivals news PDF is here!

 

Where to start this week? Perhaps with another collection of 1:43 pre-owned models and unusually this time there are hand builts, with a mix of factory built and other professional builds, all similarly displayed in BBR cases.  Added to those is a small collection of kits from Starter, Provence, Arena and Western.  We have some hand builts from BBR themselves too with a pair of AF Corse Ferrari 488s from the 2018 Le Mans 24 Hours and the beautiful Bertone Ferrari 250GT as it appeared at Geneva in 1962. Following on from last week when we brought you the first colour options of the Ferrari Monza SP1 and Lamborghini Huracan Evo Spider from Looksmart, this week sees another delivery with the striking red version of the Ferrari and several new colour options on the Lambo. Also hand built, this time from Carbone, we have new Bugatti and Mercedes releases, all very limited in numbers and beautifully finished as usual.

Studebaker Champ Pickup 1963 Metallic Blue - Reference NEO47275

 

From Matrix we have more 1930s exotica with striking Mercedes and Duesenberg subjects and winding the clock forward a few decades there is also a coachbuilt Aston Martin and, in their competition range, the brutal Group 44 Jaguar XJS. Following the Aston theme there are also resincasts from Kess with two very different 1993 four door machines. Also among the latest Kess releases are a couple of pieces of classic Americana and a similar theme leads us into Neo who has all manner of body styles modelled this week including a Cadillac hearse and a Studebaker pickup.

 

We’ve had a couple of interesting publications arrive for fans of sports-racing cars, with an updated reprint of the excellent 'Sports Car Racing in Camera 1960-69' and a very impressive two-volume study of the Porsche 956. Back to models and in diecast WSI Collectibles has added to its range of 1:50 Dakar Rally trucks with a monstrous Renault machine. Trofeu’s national series are expending rapidly and among the new subjects here we see sports and saloon racers from Belgium, Italy and Germany. Finally, from Ixo we have a pretty classic Jaguar and something of a rarity, a rally Ford Capri wearing the distinctive orange of Jagermeister.

If you missed it, here is the last edition of FSW Weekly, the current Future Production listings, Sale Department and our Rarities Department too.

Important admin announcement - we will be closed for our annual stocktake at the end of next week and into Monday of the following (26th, 27th & 30th).  We apologise in advance for this annual internal event but keep your orders coming and we will have them on the way to you the moment we are done counting.

As expected, there were some absolutely cracking races at Goodwood last weekend and if you’re in the UK there are highlights on ITV4 tonight and tomorrow at 8pm (and presumably on the ITV player online afterwards). In the WRC Ogier returned to winning ways in Turkey and with Tanak finishing way down the order but winning the power stage, the championship table has been shaken up somewhat. Rene Rast became DTM champion for the second time in three years and the British GT title fell in Aston Martin’s favour after a controversial stewards decision. There’s plenty more to play for elsewhere on two and four wheels. This weekend we’re back to F1 headlining, with the Singapore GP.
