All of this week's new arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #03/2021 PDF here!

 

A couple of the significant deliveries we were expecting this week are logistically delayed but we still have an interesting selection of items arrived.  For kit builders we have a number of new 1:43 releases for you this week. AML Miniatures continue to impress with its output and we have three more Aston Martin subjects with a pre-war four-seat tourer and a brace of V8 powered specials from the 1990s. Great news for Indy 500 fans this week with the arrival from Japan of a fine looking resin and metal kit of Takuma Sato’s Indy 500 winner, released in the Brickyard series.

There are new 1:18 diecast releases from Ixo with Mk1 Escort rally cars and for those who prefer rather more modern machinery there is also a 2019 R5 class Citroen in 1:43 along with, for collectors of team support vehicles, a new VW Motorsport van. From Avenue 43 we see a rather unusual coachbuilt 2CV coupe, just the line of the rear wheel arch hinting at the base vehicle. A change of pace on these long winter evenings and we see the release of the official DVD of the Le Mans 24 Hours, offering nearly 4 hours of viewing accompanied by the excellent Radio Le Mans commentary.

 

BBR has announced the release of some beautiful 1960s Ferrari road cars as 1:18 hand builts, with 330GT 2+2s and 275GTB NART spider to choose from. Also in 1:18 we see the arrival of a pretty Formula 1 Porsche 718 in Rob Walker Racing colours, driven by Stirling Moss at Aintree in 1960 and nicely modelled by Tecnomodel.

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

2021 competition is under way and Stephane Peterhansel added the 2021 Dakar to his impressive list of titles on the event. Juho Hanninen won the Arctic rally for Toyota (recent regular Valtteri Bottas came home 6th in a Citroen, a somewhat different tool to his regular Mercedes F1 car).  Interestingly, this event reappears at the end of February as a full round of the WRC replacing the traditional Rally Sweden. The WRC gets underway with another traditional season opener in the hills above Monte Carlo. This is the last year of the current generation of cars and whilst Ogier (yes, he decided not to retire after all) may be favourite for his eighth title but Evans, Tanak & Neuville may have other ideas and want to start the year with a win on this blue ribbon even . The IMSA season kicks off this weekend with the Roar Before 24 extended test weekend including sprint races acting as a curtain raiser to next weekend’s 24 Hour race. Can either of the two Japanese cars finally break the Cadillac stranglehold for the win? The Roar may give us an idea. If you fancy a bit of Formula 1 related fun, long time friend of GPM, Charles Cossette from Ottawa, Canada has sent us through an F1 history based crossword he has compiled.  We’ll give the answers next week!
