FSW Weekly Edition 08/2020

All of this week's new arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #08/2020 PDF here!

 

It has been a strange week. What seemed to be pretty quiet turns out a fair number of new releases arrived! We will begin with 1:18 and we see releases from several makers. TrueScale has, at long last, released the Joe Leonard version of its full detail Lotus 56 gas-turbine Indycar and in the kerbside Top Speed range there are Aston Martin road cars and a GT3 NSX. A new range for GPM is CMR. These are relatively simple kerbside diecasts at a very competitive price where the shapes look good, the paintwork is excellent and the wire wheels are finely done….

Minichamps has new 1:18 releases too with Schumacher’s F1 debut Jordan 191 which has arrived alongside several new 1:43s. Spark made a delivery of mostly back orders but also included restocks of several Le Mans winners and one new BMW E30 M3 touring car. In addition to the  1:18s mentioned above, we wee a new 1:43 Pagani from TrueScale and a re-issue of the Beta tools garage set, which coincidentally arrives alongside a Gulf branded pit equipment set from GMP. Our 1:43 reincast highlight this week comes from our ever imaginative friends at Autocult whose new releases are a couple of interesting pre-war German machines and the completely bonkers, space age, six-wheeled Ford Seattle-ite concept. A machine designed to be powered by a ‘small nuclear power unit’. Not sure whether this is a case of “Take me to your leader” or “Take me to your dealer”. 

 

We’ve deliveries from a few of our traditional European artisan makers this week too. BBR delivered pre-sold out 2018 Ferrari F1s, a very fetching blue version of the Ferrari F8 and, in the very limited edition RGM Design series, a pretty Ferrari 250GT Pininfarina. We’ve been able to fill plenty of back orders from Renaissance items with a significant kit and accessory shipment. There are a few stock items here too both in kit and hand built forms. A pleasant surprise from Touchwood Models too with plenty of back orders and an all new kit of the Mercedes 90hp with which William K Vanderbuilt set a new Land Speed Record of 92.3 mph on Daytona Beach in 1904.

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

Mentioning Daytona, last weekend’s 500 eventually ran on Monday having been rain delayed and the eventual race was marred by a huge accident in the late stages which saw leader Ryan Newman flip and get collected by following vehicles. It’s testament to the strength of the machinery that he was released after a relatively short stay in hospital. Meanwhile in Sweden, Elfin Evans took a well deserved victory in the WRC and youngster Kalle Rovanpera became the youngest in the sport’s history to take a podium at just 19.  Mich Evans took victory for Jaguar in the Mexico Formula E Prix with a dominant lights to flag victory - almost unheard of in the electric racing series. This weekend we look forward to WEC action from Austin TX and the first round of the Australian Supercars. We’ve also had our first look at the 2020 F1 cars as testing begins. There are a few bright liveries to look forward to for your collections.
