FSW Weekly Edition 16/2018

Subscribe To 4SW Weekly Newsletter

This week's FSW Weekly #16/2018 latest arrivals news is here!

 

Some things old, some things new, a few re-issues and some glue! Where the old is concerned, we have taken delivery of a fairly significant collection of un-built 1:43 resin and metal kits. These cover a variety of themes and can be found in the rarities section on our website. Keep checking the list as we are uploading in batches and are being snapped up pretty quickly too. We’ll get onto the new in a moment but along with the new deliveries and classic kits we have a few restocks including glues from Bison and Zap. The re-issues are plastic kits from two of the leading makers, Fujimi and Hasegawa who have a number of interesting subjects between them, original parts with new decal prints and in a couple of cases new variants. These include F1, Le Mans, rally, road and touring car subjects, so something for pretty much everyone! We have re-stocks and back orders from Tamiya too and for F1 fans the new 1:12 release from Italeri of the Alfa Romeo 179. Also in plastic is an all-new kit from Beemax for touring car fans of the Toyota Corona raced in Japan in 1994, this machine also appearing in Europe as the Carina E so we will hopefully see some alternative liveries soon.

Arriving just after we finished last week’s Weekly News, Midlantic has made the first delivery of their re-mastered Ferrari 612 Can-Am models. There are several variants to choose from, available as well thought out and cleanly cast resin & metal kits or as excellent hand builts. There are more kits and hand builts from ABC Brianza with a brace of similarly styled Alfa Romeo 6Cs, one a six-window saloon the other a ‘Presidential’ cabriolet/parade car. From Jade Miniatures, we have received a delivery containing a number of back orders and also several new hand built Grand Prix machines from the 1950s (and one from the 40s) with chassis from Gordini, HWM, Ferrari, BRM and Talbot Lago. 

 

We’ve quite a few new arrivals from Spark, with classic road, F1 and Le Mans machines along with more modern LM and F1 subjects including Hamilton’s 2017 Belgian GP mount, a race  which marked his 200th F1 start. Collectors of 1:18 road cars have new releases from Top Speed to enjoy and in the parent TrueScale range there are several new 1:43 models with Honda and Porsche sport-racing subjects, Honda & McLaren road cars, Walter Wolf’s spectacular Kremer 935 road car and, in the ‘Collection d’Elegance’ series, the dramatic ‘Devil’s Breath’ Alfa Romeo from Le Mans 1938.

If you missed it, here is the last edition of FSW Weekly.

The Chinese Grand Prix saw a surprise winner in the form of Daniel Ricciardo, he looked as surprised as anyone when his two stop strategy helped him take the lead with twelve laps to go, his fresher tyres seeing him take five places.  The Long Beach street circuit saw plenty of action over the weekend with Indycar and IMSA races providing the entertainment. Headline sport this weekend is on two wheels, with MotoGP from Austin. Let’s hope it’s as exciting as the last race! There’s plenty going on on four wheels too with the IndyCars out again, V8 Supercars and Blancpain in Monza.
