Mid-Week

Hey All,
Spark is on the move in the 1:18 world. These three LeMans winners just came in last week, and they are selling extremely fast. Very nice detail and the packaging is a nice touch too. If you collect LeMans winners, check out the rest of the series on the sites for the future releases coming in 2010. Spark is dominating the 1:43 market, and are looking to do the same with the 1:18 market.


Dauer Porsche 1994 Baldi/Dalmas/Haywood


1972 Matra Simca Pescarolo/Hill


1980 Rondeau M379B Rondeau/Jaussaud

We also got re-stock on two of the 1:18 Porsche street cars by Spark. These were marked as sold out and no longer available. Out of the blue we received a small re-stock shipment. If you missed them 1st time around, have at it. Not very often that you get a 2nd chance with Spark.



1967 Porsche 911R in white


2007 RUF Porsche silver

A few 1:43 of interest:
New batch of Spark included the 1980 Daytona winning Porsche 935 B2 as driven by Joest /Stommelen/Merl


Big shipment of new and re-stocks from Ebbro, click on the image to see the "new 1:43" category.


Quite a few new books this week including my personal favorite the Moto GP and WSB Annual Motocourse. Tons of stats, interviews with the riders, and of course loads of photos from the 2009 season.


That's it for now, stay tuned.....

Another mild day here in VT. We will see 60's and sunny next week. The bad news, winter is not over! There will be at least another snow storm or two before it's all said and done.
Anybody get up at 6:00am to watch F1 qualifying? Vettel on pole....I'm not surprised, the kid is fast!
Should be a great race tomorrow. OK, if you collect 1:43 Grand Prix cars, then listen up. True Scale Miniatures is shipping this week the Tyrrell P34 Six Wheeler. This is the 2nd car in their GP series. The 1st which was the Gurney Westlake Eagle sold out very quickly. We expect these to do the same. A '76 Scheckter and '77 DePallier will be in this shipment. A 2 car set will also be available soon. Click on the image to go to the 1:43 TSM category on the site. Very good quality stuff!













We kissed and made up with Tony, so we are back on board with Exoto. The first delivery was re-stock on the very popular 1:43 trucks. Big shipment of 1:18 arriving in 1-2 weeks. Stay tuned!


I have been receiving a lot of inquiries about this one. 1:18 scale GMP Ferrari 330 P4 Coupe prototype in black. Only 750 pieces will be made. Get your pre-orders in on this one!


More new 1:18 F1 arrivals. 2009 McLaren both drivers along with others. Click the image to see the entire 2009 F1 listings.


1:18 Senna Toleman TG184
We only got a partial shipment, the mother load is right behind but if you want to be among the first to add this one to your Senna Collection, don't snooze! Extremely crisp decoration!

Rossi 2008 Yamaha YZR-M1
This one is selling fast. I better snag one for my Moto GP collection before they're all gone!


Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

F1 anyone?

The 2010 F1 season starts this weekend, with much anticipation to say the least. Schumi out of retirement to  batlle with the young guns of the sport, new teams, new regulations, 4 previous World Champions in the mix. Should be a great season to say the least.
You can check out the Speed TV broadcast times for all 3 days at my friend Tom's site:

OK, if you have digested the Spark 2010 program, then you can now dive into the 2010 Minichamps program here:
http://www.replicarz.com/images/2010miniPO.pdf

We should have these all set up on the sites shortly. On both the Spark and Minichamps 2010 programs, we are strongly suggesting pre-orders to secure delivery. With EWA out of the picture we are picking up a lot of their 1:43 collectors, so this is putting additional pressure on our stock levels. It will take us a few months to adjust to this. By pre-ordering you are guaranteed to receive the models as soon as we receive our first delivery.

Be back at ya shortly with more!
