This week's FSW Weekly #46/2019 latest arrivals news PDF is here!

 

Looking through this week’s new arrivals lists, it is only rally fans who don’t appear to be catered for, we’ve something for pretty much everyone else. Sorry rally fans! So, we will start with the kit builders and useful restocks for loading up the spares box come from Virage with its excellent range of high quality decals. There are all new resin/metal kits too, with JPS offering several excellent painted Le Mans subjects including a couple we didn’t expect to ever see, a very distinctive pink Jaguar E-Type which we remember seeing on our first visit to the Le Mans Classic back in 2004 and the Krohn Aviation sponsored Dempsey Porsche from this year’s race, which failed to take the start after a heavy practice crash.

Staying with competition cars for a bit, Ebbro has released several very colourful new diecast & resincast models of GT3 machinery raced in the Japanese Super GT series with Lamborghini Huracans and the magnificent looking Honda NSX. If single-seaters are more your thing, Minichamps is now fully on stream with the second generation Formula E cars and also has some classic McLaren F1s from the 1975 season. Moving from diecast to hand built, BBR bring us up to date with the Ferrari SF90 driven by Charles Leclerc to 5th place at the Australian Grand Prix. 

 

Also from BBR there are new road car releases with a Ferrari 250 Lusso in 1:43 and the spectacular SP Monza concept in 1:18. Winding the clock back a few decades, the latest road cars from Matrix include Pininfarina-bodied Jaguar XJ12s, some interesting coachworks on pre-war Mercedes chassis, a brace of Citroen hearses and a pretty little Veritas sports racer. How’s that for variety! Another German sports racer comes from Avenue 43 in the shape the BMW used by Hans Stuck to win the German hillclimb championship at the age of 60, a high he retired on. Finally this week we have new releases from Autocult and for the most part these are unusual vehicles, none more so that the streamlined saloon made in very limited production in the 1920s to the specifications of airship designer Dennis Burney.

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 Toyota having dominated for the past couple of years, the WEC’s balance of performance seems to have worked in China last weekend, Rebellion taking the top step of the podium. Looking to the future in sports cars, Brabham’s BT62 made its race debut at Brand Hatch last weekend. A wet club meeting with the throttle apparently restricted isn’t the best place to show the car’s potential but it looked and sounded fabulous! This weekend we look forward to one of the more eclectic race meetings on the calendar, the Macau GP weekend and to get us in the mood, here’s some classic footage from the Groups A days.  Brazil is host to the Formula 1 boys & girls and the MotoGP get to put on a show in Valencia...
