FSW Weekly Edition 16/2019

This week's FSW Weekly #16/2019 latest arrivals news PDF is here!

 

We’ve a fabulous mixed bag of new models for you this week and we’ll begin with the most popular subjects. For race fans and in resincast, Looksmart has released Kimi Raikkonen's 2018 US Grand Prix winning Ferrari. Many collectors have asked if it will include the “Mission Winnow” decals and the answer is no, this being a Philip Morris brand, but a quick search of ebay should do the trick. There are more Formula 1s from Spark among its huge number of new releases. For fans of the modern machines there is Max Verstappen’s 2018 Mexican GP winner, while among the classics are Williams, Ligier, McLaren and Lotus, with a Lola Formula 2 for good measure. The Ligier name appears among the new Le Mans subjects too and there is a wealth of Porsches with classic and modern subjects, including the one you’ve all been waiting for, the 2018 ‘Pink Pig’.

EELCO Wee Eel VI 1965 - Reference DWI43011M

 

Rather more unusual subjects come from Autocult as our first port of call and in its latest releases we see a very advanced for its time Tracta truck, a charming BMW prototype from the early 1950s and in a rare foray into motorsport, the Formula Vee raced by a young Niki Lauda in the early stages of his career. For kit builders we turn to Studio 27 and Tabu Designs, with new decals from both including Ferrari 312T3 in 1:20, Kawasaki carbon details in 1:12  and the second of Ford’s retro liveries for the GTs raced at Daytona this year in 1:24. Back to 1:43 and the more eccentric in design, for speed record fans there are beautifully made kit and hand built versions of the EELCO Wee Eel VI from Dwindle.

 

Dwarfing the speed record machine, we move from salt to sand and the latest in WSI’s excellent range of 1:50 Dakar race trucks. Both have similar Renault chassis beneath and are run by the same team, but the bodywork between the pair is wildly different. Still on a rally theme and slightly smaller, Ixo continues its series of Ford Transit support vehicles from the late 1970s/early 80s with the van of Dave Jones Rallysport. There’s more for rally fans from Trofeu too, with Escorts, a Fiat 131, Alpine and the Audi Quattro driven by Malcolm Wilson on the 1984 RAC rally and sponsored by BBC’s Top Gear when it was a serious motoring programme and great supporter of rallying.

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

With this weekend being Easter, we will be closed from the end of today until Tuesday morning. As is traditional for the long weekend, there is plenty going on around the UK’s circuits for those on our islands who are fed up of chocolate (strange but it happens apparently), with race meetings on seven different circuits! There were a fair number of high profile meetings around the world last weekend, Mercedes dominating the Chinese GP, Alex Rins joining the winners circle in MotoGP for the first time, Rossi (Alexander, not Valentino) taking victory in Indycars and plenty more besides. We’ll see you again next week for another short week as we will be closed on Friday 26th too. More on that in next week's FSW Weekly...
