Subscribe To 4SW Weekly Newsletter

All of this week's new arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #28/2020 PDF here!

 

A couple of our traditional French artisan makers kick off this week's news as we see a selection of charming hand builts of pre-war Le Mans machinery from CCC and a significant delivery of back orders and restocked kits and accessories from Renaissance, the first delivery from the latter since lockdown began. If more obscure Le Mans subjects are your thing, there are a couple of GPM Studio builds freshly into stock which arrived with a great selection of customer commission builds and we also have a new hand built from Marsh Models, with the fabulous looking Wolf Dallara Can-AM 2 machine.

There’s a new 1:43 hand built from Looksmart too, with a fresh colour option on its Ferrari F8 Tributo and from  the same maker there are several new 1:18 Ferrari F1 machines having arrived with Prost’s 1990 French GP winner marking Ferrari’s 100th GP race win and several versions of the 2019 SF90 with race winners for both Leclerc and Vettel. On Friday afternoon we received a veritable mountain of cartons from Spark containing a great selection of 18ths. These include 1965 Lotus and 1966 Brabham Grand Prix winners, the Spa 1000kms winning Gulf Mirage and from 2019 a great selection of Le Mans, Spa and DTM subjects, plus a few more road cars and classic Le Mans entries! Then on Monday there was another Spark delivery, this time mostly 43rds with another great selection of subjects both modern and historic.

 

And plenty more besides in 1:43 resincast and diecast from other makers. From Matrix we have very special Ferraris, Jensen and Cadillac subjects, each offered a choice of colours. Schuco released a charming limited edition set of early VW Beetle and T1 ‘Samba’ bus and also a versatile car transporter trailer! The kind of trailer ideal for moving a classic rally car and there are plenty of these from Trofeu with Escorts, a Chevette, BMW and also Lotus Cortina raced in America. Our final maker of the week is one that we’ve not seen for a number of years. DiP Model is Russian based and specialises in subjects from the mother country and now with new distribution, we see Zil speed record cars and spectacular Kamaz rally raid trucks.

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

Formual 1 returned last weekend and the script writers did a pretty good job! It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen attrition rates as high, we had plenty of wheel to wheel action, a little controversy and an adjustment to the pecking order. Both Looksmart and BBR have already announce the Ferraris and we expect to hear about the rest of the grid very soon. In this unusual year, there’s effectively a re-run this weekend but the weather forecast is looking rather different with much lower temperatures and the threat of rain on Saturday. Fancy something a bit silly to watch in the meantime? Drifting is one of those sports which clearly takes a lot of skill but it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. We’re not generally keen but then when looking for info on the Kamaz trucks delivered by DiP this week, Andre found one of them being made to go very sideways! This we heartily approve of.
