All of this week's new arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #37/2021 PDF here!

 

First of all his week advanced warning that we are approaching the end of our financial year and that means the inevitable stock count, for which we will be closed from 28th-30th September. Until then it’s business as usual as we try and get as much out to you as we can! 

The latest delivery from Spark had a pleasingly brisk (in post-Brexit terms!) transition to us from France and three large cartons included a great selection of subjects with a couple of 1950s Le Mans racers, several 2021 Monte Carlo rally machines (plus a few rally classics) and a fine collection of historic Formula 1 cars with Cooper, Toleman, McLaren, Williams, Lotus and the 1973 Roger Williamson March. A talent sadly robbed of his future in Holland, the race after this version.

New releases from TrueScale are the brace of BMW Team RLL BMW M8GTEs from last year’s Daytona 24 Hours, the #24 black car the GTLM class winner. Le MansMiniatures has delivered a nice little shipment of backordered 1:24 kits and accessories for those who had been waiting and also included another of its excellent 1:43 hand painted figure sets, this new group including a photographer, chequered-flag man and vintage mechanic with pit stop lollipop.

 

If your collecting needs are for road cars, there’s lots to enjoy here this week with plenty of very specialist machines from Matrix. There’s a tiny Moretti coupe, Thatcher’s governmental Rover P5,  magnificent Isotta Fraschini and Duesenberg roadsters and the famous Bugatti T57 built by VanVooren for the Shah of Iran, one of the most dramatic cars of the Art Deco era. There are more road cars in 1:18, these being from Cult Scale Models and of rather more attainable subjects with a 1990 Range Rover and two colour choices for the pretty little Triumph Spitfire Mk2.

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

Well, after a non event in Spa and a bit of a procession at Zandvoort, the Italian Grand Prix was certainly way more interesting and it was great to see McLaren back on the top of the podium (Spark models announced this week) and who can't resist Ricciardo's infectious smile? On a busy weekend, Kalle Rovanpera took a second WRC win of the season in Greece, although Ogier looks to be in control of the title once again and there was plenty of action on two wheels with both World Superbikes and MotoGP.  Alex Palou re-took the lead of the Indycar table with his win in Portland and this weekend they’re all off to one of the best circuits on the planet, Laguna Seca.
