All of this week's new arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #22/2020 PDF here!

 

We are starting this week with kits and hand builts as there has been a nice parcel from Tron, the first for several months due to the various restrictions. Much of it was back orders, so we’ve been able to fill a fair number of orders and have accessories set aside for many more of you pending other shipments which are on the way.  There are new items too with early Ferrari transporters in kit form in Tron’s main range, a multi-option for the 1963 Ferrari 156 Formula 1 in the M Models series and as a hand built, 1965 Ferrari 1512 driven by Surtees in the British GP under the Tron-Club banner.

Ferrari 1512 3rd UK 1965 #1 Surtees - Reference CLU035B

Audi Quattro Sport Safari 1985 #1 Mikkola/Hertz - Reference TRFRRDE22

 

A few months ago we embarked on a little project trying to rescue some older kits by getting decals redrawn and printed and we have received a few more liveries back this week. On the subject of liveries, Trofeu’s range always brings lots of colour and unusual subject matter and there’s another great selection from the Portuguese this week. These include a Capri from the Nurburgring 6 Hours and rally machines representing the Ford, Vauxhall and Audi marques.

 

The CMR range of 1:18 diecasts has proven popular since we started handling them a few months back and following the same train of thought of inexpensive diecast classic race cars in 1:18 this week we have a sample Moss Mercedes from iScale. We were disappointed. Barely a week goes by without a Spark delivery and we have half a one for you this time as once again the parcels have been split up on the way. This means partial quantities on a few subjects and more new subjects to come.  So far we have a great selection of classic and modern sports and saloon racers (with some particularly attractive BMWs) and some great classic Formula 1s including the first of the long awaited Parnellis. Several customer orders are being held pending the balance of the shipment, so please don’t bombard us with messages asking where your pre-order is - when last we checked it was in Paris!!!!

Parnelli VPJ4B USA 1976 #27 Andretti - Reference SPK1891

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 the GPM team should have had a sleepless night at Silverstone competing for the second year in the Citroen C1 Club 24hrs. This weekend we should be looking forward to the lunacy that is the Isle of Man TT, but global events have obviously taken over.  Nevertheless, there is movement to the restrictions in world sport which we very much look for to seeing crystallise into our favourite sport being once again the entertainment we so crave for.  Chins up everyone, we are almost through this...
