FSW Weekly Edition #33/2020

Subscribe To 4SW Weekly Newsletter

All of this week's new arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #33/2020 PDF here!

First of all, please note that we are taking a rare holiday and will be closed from Saturday 15th, returning on Tuesday September 1st. We will clear the decks here before we leave tomorrow and catch up as quickly as possible when we return. The website will still be live throughout and you can place orders. With the number of rarities that we have listed over the last week including some very desirable items from the likes of Bosica and Superior, ordering through the web is strongly advised. If you email your interest the items will more than likely be gone by the time we see the messages!

So, apart from rarities, what has arrived? Many of the pre-owned kits are Formula 1 which ties in nicely to our first news. After various production delays and real life getting in the way, Cigale 43 has sent through a batch of new March 761B/2-4-0 decals and a number of back orders. These are for the less commonly seen privateer cars and can be used with diecasts or, ideally, Tameo/Silverline kits.

Bugatti T57C Faux Cabriolet Charmaine James Young 1939 - Reference EVR226

Still with F1 fans in mind, a number of books have arrived this week with a hefty tome on the 1.5 litre formula of the early 1960s, two biographies of Jochen Rindt, an updated and enlarged edition of "Ferrari: The Golden Years" and for American racing fans, "Cars Of Trans-Am Racing: 1966-1972". Back to models and in 1:43 kits and hand builts this week, from GCAM we have some interesting and  obscure (less successful!) entries from the Le Mans 24 Hours over the years., while for road car fans there are some beauties from Evrat of Delahaye and Bugatti machines from the golden years for coachbuilding of the 1930s

 

Diecast and resincast releases this week come from several sources, with Neo offering Jaguar and Chevrolet road cars, Ixo also has new road cars with a classic Mustang and modern Jag and Astons as well as a couple of additions to its modern rally car range while Trofeu offer a great selection of nationally themed classic race and rally machines. Finally this week we switch up to 1:18 and BBR who released Le Mans and Mille Miglia Ferraris from the 1950s.

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

A very different race at Silverstone last week as the tyre compounds were changed and in the warmer temperatures Max Verstappen put in an impressive performance showing just how well he and his Red Bull can look after the rubber while others around them struggled. Barcelona this weekend, we can’t wait!  Also during our shutdown there will be some GPM Racing activity as André gets back behind the wheel of ‘Brie’ at Donington Park for the Citroen C1 3 Hour race on Saturday 22nd. Mark will also be there, removing used drivers and plugging fresh ones in. We’ll let you know how we got on in September, when there should also be a nice big pile of deliveries for us to tell you about. Until then, stay safe and well and to quote Boris, "Wash your hands, cover your face & make space".
