This week's FSW Weekly #37/2019 latest arrivals news PDF is here!

 

After a couple of weeks absence due to holidays, our weekly news returns and we’ve a fair selection of subjects for you. Beginning with new books we see several new titles with a fine history of the Autodelta Alfa Romeo team covering their successful years through the 60 and 70s into the early 80s. For Formula 1 fans there’s a look at some of the more innovative engineers and designers to have been involved with the sport and the latest in the Haynes ‘Workshop Manual’ series covers one of our favourite big-banger sports-racers, the Lola T70. While we’re on the subject of brutal horsepower, hand built arrivals last week from Looksmart include two absolute stunners, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster and Ferrari’s Monza SP1 concept.

Singer’s re-imagined Porsches offer modern performance in classic styling and Cult Scale Models has released some fine 1:18 resincasts of these rare machines. Also in 1:18, Ixo released some superb value diecasts of modern Skoda R5 rally cars from the 2018 ERC series.  Minichamps too has a bunch of new 1:18 releases with a well finished Williams FW16 and there are a raft of new releases in 1:43 from them as well with classic and modern F1 subjects. For visual appeal, little beats the Japanese SuperGT machines and we have three new subjects arrive from Ebbro (one of which was sold out on pre-orders). Honda’s NSX GT3 is one car which comes close visually (at least we think so), especially when we view some of the liveries racing and TrueScale has replicated one of the prettiest among its latest releases. 

 

We received a significant delivery from Spark last week with over twenty new models. These continue several classic Forluma 1 themes, there are road going Mercedes, Audis, Alpinas and Bentleys, Porsche race cars and several additions to the Formula E grid. Spark also announced plenty of future production with 1:18 Le Mans subjects now confirmed and much more. Matrix has an interesting new selection of subjects with open and closed versions of per-war Mercedes and Graber-bodied Aston Martins and a unique Rolls Royce Shooting Brake. Bizarre is a brand that we don’t often see new releases from so it was great to see four new models in one go with some very interesting pieces of early Porsche history and two speed record cars.

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

Since we closed for holidays, Charles Leclerc’s had a good couple of weeks hasn't he?  With two victories and his performance at Monza in particular showed great resilience to hold off a charging Hamilton and ultimately force the latter to use his tyres up. The last few races of the season could get very interesting. There’s plenty of international sport this weekend with WRC from Turkey, V8 Supercars and MotoGP particularly catching our eye. It’s also one of he highest profile historic meetings on the calendar with the Goodwood Revival offering lots of juicy action and to get the juices flowing, how about some classic TT action from previous years?
