All of this week's news of arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #40/2022 PDF here!

 

Stock taking out of the way for another year and we’re back to normal. This week has seen a number of interesting deliveries and we have a significant number of new releases for you. We’ll begin with traditional 1:43 kits and hand builts and from Tron offering the unique Ferrari Dino Berlinetta show car displayed at Paris in 1965 and an Osella-BMW sports-racer driven by Marzario in 1974. Also from Italy comes Arena’s latest collection of kits and hand builts. Arena tends to release just two groups per annum meaning that there’s a long list with some very colourful De Tomaso, Ferrari, Fiat, Lancia and Porsche subjects with rally and sport racers to the forefront.

Ferrari 365 GTB4 19th Sebring 12hrs 1972 #18 Reynolds/Ingle - Reference ARE1211M

Ducati Superleggera V4 1:12 - Reference TAM14140

 

Also in 1:43 hand built, Carbone has released a very elegant Castagna-bodied Mercedes from the late 1920s. Moving up the scales, from BBR in 1:18 we have a very striking new hand built of the Ferrari 360 Modena finished in traditional red and also for 1:18 Ferrari fans but on a rather smaller budget, the latest release from the excellent value KK Scale diecast range is the F50 Spider. Back to kits but moving up in size again, from Tamiya this week we see a welcome reissue (now with etched parts) of Stewart’s 1971 Monaco winning Tyrrell 003 and a new kit for bike fans with Ducati’s Superleggera V4/ Both of these kits in 1:12.

 

On to 1:43 resincasts and again we have a great choice for you. Schuco has released three variants of one of our favourite British classics (it’s not often internally we agree on matters of taste!), the Triumph TR6 offered is a choice of colours and roof arrangements. Good news for Le Mans collectors, Looksmart's completed its 1:43 Ferrari grid from the 2021 race with the last six 488GTEs arriving along with a similar GT3 machine from the Spa 24hrs and for Formula 1 fans also released is Art Marzario’s 1973 Brazilian Grand Prix Ferrari 312B3. Another large selection this week comes from Spark and here we see moderns and classics following a number of themes with rally & Dakar, Le Mans , Targa Florio, Formula 1, national series GTs and even the Tasman challenge.

Lotus 32B 1st Levin 1965 #1 Clark - Reference SPK7304

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

Max Verstappen had hoped to seal his second World Championship in Singapore but things didn’t go quite his way with a few errors. Teammate Perez took a welcome win and heading to Suzuka it is still mathematically a three horse race with both Red Bull drivers and Leclerc for Ferrari in with a shout, but realistically it’s looking vey much in Max’s favour. A record which was set in the race was Fernando Alonso starting his 350th race, overtaking Raikkonen for the most Grands Prix. Another record fell in New Zealand, Kalle Rovanpera becoming the youngest ever WRC champion at 22 years and 1 day! The Meyer Shank Acura team become IMSA champions as the Cadillacs fell over each other late at Petit Le Mans. This weekend, as well as the Japanese GP with have "The Great Race" - the Bathurst 1000 to look forward to. Can’t wait but we’ll have to settle for last year’s highlights to get the excitement levels up.
