This week's FSW Weekly #01/2019 latest arrivals news PDF is here!

 

Here we are, back to our regular Thursday slot after a couple of weeks of travelling to shows and... here is the news!

Over the past few months there has been a huge upturn in demand for the Denizen range of figures and the deliveries from our old friend Chub Pearson are getting more and more frequent with another this week. Staying with items for those who prefer to get their hands dirty, we’ve a new kit delivery from JPS which saw restocks of its pre-painted kits of the Porsche GTE ‘Retro’ liveries along with a new Cougar C20B release from the 1990 Le Mans race and also two kits which Grand Prix Models has  created together with JPS using a third party decal supplier. These use unpainted castings rather than their usual painted offerings and depict the two BMWs from the 2010 race, one in regular works colours and the other a spectacular ‘Art Car’ livery.

Last week marked the Chinese New Year and so many of the factories will be closed for the next couple of weeks, but Spark has made sure that there was a bumper delivery before they went on their break.  This included restocks of a number of Le Mans winners and new models of Porsche road cars, classic F1 chassis from BRM, Cooper, Gordini, Iso and Ligier, three more from the 2018 Le Mans grid and some interesting historic LM entries such as the striking Camaro which failed to qualify for the 1980 race.

 

Back to traditional European production for a moment and we have a straggler from last week’s CCC delivery with a hand built of a pretty DB Panhard coupe which raced at Le Mans in 1952. If Porsches are more your thing but you fancy something other than Le Mans cars, TrueScale has a couple of items of interest. The European mountain championship was very important in the late 1960s and we have the 910 Bergspider as raced in 1967. Alongside this is a far more visually dramatic machine in the form of a 914-6 raced at Laguna Seca in 1976.

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

The Gen2 Formula E series moves to Mexico this weekend and it is timely that Minichamps has announced the grid in both 1:18 and 1:43.  The first of the 2019 Formula 1 machines have begun to break cover and we’ll know what they all look like next week as testing begins on Monday. This weekend sees one of the biggest dates on the US calendar, with the Daytona 500 on Sunday. Meanwhile, over in Sweden the WRC protagonists will be doing battle in the snowy forests of Sweden - thrilling viewing!
