All of this week's new arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #43/2020 PDF here!

 

The past week has been one of new model announcements (see daily headlines at bottom) more than arrivals, with plenty of interesting stuff to come but there have also been a few deliveries! We’ll begin with resincast competition cars and from Trofeu we see several new releases in the now familiar national themed series which include the first in the Kenya line of Safari rally cars and plenty more colourful race and rally machinery ranging from early 60s Saab and Cortina to a zebra striped Impreza from 2001. Ebbro is a brand we’ve not heard from for a while and from whom there has been a very welcome delivery of its diecast Super GT machinery from the 2018 and 2019 seasons.

Aston Martin Lagonda Shooting Brake 1987 Blue - Reference KES43047000

 

For Formula 1 kit builders we have some more pre-owned Tameo & SilverLine kits and a restock from Virage of its excellent decal sets.  On to road cars and if you like a bit of classic Americana there are a couple of very stylish 1950s and 60s Cadillacs among the latest releases from GLM. Kess also has a subject following a similar theme with a 1960 De Soto and this appears alongside (again long awaited by many) the Iso Rivolta Fidia saloon and angular Aston Martin Lagonda Shooting Brake.

 

Hand builts this week include a couple of very limited production rarities in the GPM Studio with a pair of special builds of 1970s Le Mans Porsches which haven’t been made for a very, very long time. Our other hand builts this week take us back to road machinery and from Looksmart we have received a number of back orders along with two new colour options for the Ferrari 812GTS - Rosso Scuderia & classic Rosso Corsa. We have several new books too with profiles of the Audi Quattro’s competition history, the Ferrari 250GTE, a history of the Land Speed Record and a chassis history of Alfa Romeo’s magnificent Tipo 33 series.

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

Last weekend saw a significant event in Australian motorsport as the factory Holdens took to Bathurst for the final time, bowing out with a win but only just, the podium covered by under two seconds after over 6 hours of racing! Goodwood hosted a slightly unusual race meeting with none of the usual surrounding atmosphere but there was still plenty of excellent on track action including the closing ‘shootout’ one lap sprint. This weekend we see an F1 Grand Prix return to Portugal, with the underused Portimao facility playing host. Should be an interesting one! We’re back in action this weekend too, as the C1 Challenge visits Thruxton, GPM Racing onboard Exit 13s car #555 for those watching live timing. We mentioned at the start of the news that there had been a lot of new announcements (check out Future Production) and among these is the spectacular Buick speed record car "Bombshell Betty" coming from Autocult and we have found a great on board clip of it running.
