All of this week's news of arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #29/2024 PDF available here!

 

The week started calmly with GP Replicas and a healthy release of classic Formula 1 models offering 1:43 Ferrari 312B2 & Ferrari 412T2, 1:18 Brabham BT49C, Ferrari 312B, Ferrari 640, Ferrari 801, Lotus 49B & Tyrrell P34. It has finished manically with two shipments from Spark. The first was a great delivery particularly if you enjoy GT3 racing and the Spa/Nurburgring 24hrs plus current Aston Martin, Red Bull & classic Brabham, Lotus, Hesketh Formula 1, Super GT Honda & Subaru, 2023 F1 helmets & 1:64 2021/22 works Porsches. The second is an enormous collection of new 1:43 & 1:18 models. Matra figuring heavily as both sportscars & Formula 2 joined by Formula 1, Sebring, Monte Carlo, SCCA, Spa 24hrs, Le Mans & IMSA subjects for many other car manufacturers.

Jaguar Mk2 Country Estate 1963 Green - Reference MTX41001-112

 

In the world of road car miniatures, Cult Scale Models latest new 1:18 resincast models out of its Chinese factory are the 1970s Jensen Interceptor III & 1990s Volvo 850 GLT each available in a choice of three colours. Staying in 18th scale, Model Car Group's recently issued  diecast Ford Capri Mk2 X-Pack is now available in red with BBS style wheels. Hand built in 43rd scale, Looksmart has delivered its models of the Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo, a wicked looking gaming concept while from Matrix, the new resincast releases are 1990s Jaguar XJR-S & 1949 Cadillac Coupe DeVille Prototype both available in three colours, 1962 Alfa Romeo 2000S Coupe Vignale and 1963 Jaguar Mk2 Country Estate that caught our eye.

 

Lastly we are featuring the 1:43 metal kits and hand built models of Scale Racing Cars and SMTS.  These are some of the last stocks available as SMTS consolidates the catalogues of both brands.  We have a substantial selection in stock of what remains and there is a chance for those items shown as currently out of stock to place an order but we are unable to guarantee obtaining further supplies. Be quick to grab these great models and kits at end of line bargain prices.

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

In the sport, Toyota produced a dominant win in the Brazilian round of the WEC with Manthey taking the GT3 class once again for Porsche. Continuing the sportscar racing theme, the spoils in the Mosport IMSA race went to the Inter Europol Oreca and Corvette in GTD, this an event where the GTP field was not present. The double header Iowa IndyCar event went the way of Scott McLaughlin (his first oval win) and Will Power making for a strong antipodean flavour. 

This weekend Formula 1, 2, and three are once again active this time in Hungary. Here's hoping that McLaren and Mercedes can continue to take the fight to Max. It is the final round of the Formula E championship in London with seven potential champions! May the best man win. There's no let up for the IndyCar teams as they head off to Toronto, NASCAR visits Indianapolis and it's the Sydney night races for the Australian Supercars.
