FSW Weekly Edition 14/2020

Subscribe To 4SW Weekly Newsletter

All of this week's new arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #14/2020 PDF here!

 

We are still here beavering away for you!  There are plenty of orders on the way out of the GPM door and on the way around the world. We follow last week’s kit sale with a great selection of sale bargains for you on in stock diecast and resincast models, perfect to refresh those display cabinets that you’re sat at home staring at and have already rearranged three times! Along with these we have also had a chance to go through a collection of pre-owned hand builts and older diecast rarities, something out of the ordinary for us, and this includes some absolute gems.

Cunningham C5R #31 - Reference SALE1833

Panoz Esperante GTR1 Q9 Hybrid Le Mans Test 1998 #46 - Reference SPK4867

 

On to the new and we have a huge delivery from Spark with a great selection of 1:43 new releases. There is a whole host of classic F1 subjects - Ganley & Westbury BRMs, Gachot Coloni, McRae Iso, Laffite Ligier, Beltoise Matra and Surtees & Stommelen Surtees. All the 2019 DTM Audi RS5s, Gr5 Lotus Europa, Le Mans 2019 Corvettes plus GT3 Daytona Lexus, Audi and Mercedes subjects. The consignment also includes road going diecast 2019 Porsches Speedsters, some welcome re-issues of 1933 Alfa Romeo & 2014 Audi Le Mans winners and this fabulous looking Panoz hybrid which took part in the Le Mans test weekend in 1999. 

 

There are several new diecast releases from Norev in both 1:43 and 1:18, with subjects ranging from Fiat 500s and 2CVs to a very smart looking C3 Corvette (those all in the larger scale). Also in 1:18, for fans of modern supercars there is the McLaren Senna and the current version of the Bentley Continental GT both available from Top Speed. With many folks having extra time on their hands, how abut some new reading material? Long time friend of GPM, David Blumlein, has had his history of the pre-war Brooklands endurance races published and there are also lavish volumes on the histories of Bentley, the Ferrari 250GTO and of the Kremer Porsche outfit.

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

In addition to the week’s arrivals from Spark, they tell us another shipment is dispatched today.  Details will be available on Monday of another delivery due to be on its way next week too. They are not alone so we should have plenty for you over the next few weeks. Now, we were originally scheduled to be opening the showroom this Saturday. That will obviously not be happening so please all stay home and safe. The May opening is also looking unlikely at the moment, but we will await guidance on that one. When we do eventually re-open the showroom, there will be biscuits! (Yes it’s OK Andre, I’ll buy them! Ed Mark). 

Following on from last weeks mention of a couple of virtual racing series that have sprung up to fill our lives with a little something, the IndyCar Series did a super job running its first race of the 2020 season around Watkins Glen.  All the current drivers took part plus a couple of well known handy sim racing additions (Scott Speed & Jimie Johnson for example) for 45 laps around Watkins Glen.  Well worth a watch - the Dallaras even sporting the new for 2020 safety screen.  For guys more into historic stuff, there was also a 'one make' Brabham BT44 race taking place for fun with many famous 'Masters' from F1 and IndyCar.  None of it is the same as the real thing but may relieve a couple of hours during lockdown.  By the way, Spark are listing all bar three F1 2020 teams for pre-order from the Barcelona tests. They may be as close as we get...
