This week's FSW Weekly #50/2019 latest arrivals news PDF is here!

 

With just over a full week of work left before the Christmas break, during that time there are a few deliveries which we are expecting ensuring we will be busy until the very end! If you’re looking for a late bargain, we have a sale on of all in stock hand built Ferraris and there’s plenty to choose from, but we quick, sale ends midnight on Monday 16th. On to the new releases and we’ll look to a marque created after a famous falling out with Ferrari, that of Ferruccio Lamborghini and the car which saw his young company come of age, the 400GT of 1966, offered as a traditional 1:18 kerbside diecast in two colours by KK Scale.

In addition to our little sale, there are some very unusual new hand builts for you this week. We start with a Le Mans subject from GCAM who, along with a number of back orders, has sent through its first finished models of the 1100cc Kieft which ran at Le Mans in 1954. There is more for Le Mans collectors with a brace of Adlers from CCC and, sticking with the less commonly seen subjects, JarMark can always be relied upon to provide unusual bespoke Formula 1 machines.  While we may have seen many McLaren M23s over the years, using the excellent Tameo kits as donor parts, the less often modelled privateer cars are possible, such as Tony Trimmer’s last F1 entry.

Marsh Models has made a second delivery of its recently issued Maserati T151/3 resin & metal kit and there is also a new kit here, the third in a series looking at the various variants of the Ferrari 512S. This time John & Pam have created the 1970 Scuderia Filipinetti cars.  Continuing with its theme of the unusual, our new resincast arrivals are from Autocult, a maker specialising in the obscure, as usual they don’t disappoint with a  works Porsche prototype, another intended as a Mexican built GT and an MG M Mini which we can only find as a set of factory sketches!

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

As the weather closes in and gets ever more wintry here in Europe, there is plenty of racing activity this weekend in warmer climes with two big endurance races in Bahrain (WEC) and the UAE (Gulf) 12 Hours, plus tin-top action with the WTCC in Malaysia and local series in Brazil and Argentina. TV coverage and live streams are available from the WEC and WTCC races. For those who haven’t seen it, along with Christian Bale being nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in Le Mans 1966/Ford v Ferrari, there is a magnificent short animated film based around the events in 1955 which is up for awards in various short film categories.
