Happy Holidays!












I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers
for your continued support of Replicarz. We appreciate your business! 
We couldn't ever do this without you our loyal customers. 
 
After today, Replicarz is closed for our annual holiday shut down
period until Wednesday January 2. We do this each year to rest 
up the crew and allow them some much needed time with friends
and family.
 
So with that all said, Happy Holidays and a safe and healthy New Year to all.
 
Oh and one more thing: While we are closed our annual customer 
appreciation sale is now underway. 10% off all in stock models, sorry
no back orders or pre-orders apply. Use promo code HNY
The sale will end Monday night Dec. 31 at 12:00 midnight EST
 
Thanks again and all the best,

Mark & The Replicarz Crew

Battle of the titans?














Spark lashes out at article posted on Autoart website.
Read them both. 


It sounds like somebody's nose is a little bent out of shape.
I say let the mfg speak with their model quality. Easy.
Just my 2 cents.

How big do you like 'em?

















Your models that is?
How about this 1:8 Amalgam Lotus 38 Jim Clark Indy winner.
So beautiful, so big, and the epitome of what a true museum
quality replica is. All that come at a price. And where are you
going to put it?
You'll find room.......

M-B Patentwagon 1886





















OK the ebay seller listed this as a 1:8 Franklin Mint.
I know FM did produce this model back in the day.























But look at the tag, Made by CMC?
Anybody have any knowledge of CMC ever producing
this one? Maybe an exclusive for Franklin Mint?





















I have been dealing with CMC since day 1 and have
never seen or heard of them doing this model.
Love to hear from anyone that has more info.





















Thanks to long time customer Jim S. for bringing this to my
attention. And Jim is the proud owner of this sweet find too.
I can smell the weekend........

Some great old photos

I just stumbled onto this site and found some incredible
shots from the early days of Indy. We are constantly on
the hunt for images and information like this. So if any of
you want to contribute to our ongoing research of this era
drop me a line or just send me links.

Yet another gem to add to your CMC collection.

Vettel 3 in a row

















I know the majority of you including myself were pulling for
Fernando/Ferrari, they did everything they could and Vettel
was fortunate to say the least. Very lucky that he didn't get
tagged when he was sitting in the middle of the track facing
the wrong way. Vettel becomes only the 3rd man to ever win
3 Championships in a row. Two incredible races to close out
the 2012 season. March can't come quick enough. Oh yeah,
Minichamps is already showing the 1:18 as sold out. Get those
pre-orders in now if you collect World Champs.












1:18 is here

1:43 is here

1:18 Marmon Wasp update



Here's a few photos we just received from the factory.
Not the best images but you can clearly see the progress
that we have made since the last sample. This sample will
arrive to us on Tuesday. If all looks good we give them the
green light to start production.
















Yes we are guilty of many delays with this model.
Brian and I consider this to be "thee" most significant Indy
500 winner of all time. We want to produce the most
accurate and well detailed model we can while still
keeping the price affordable for the average collector.





















As most of the you know, originally this was going to be a
sealed body design. Well as you can see we decided to
change that plan and the model has a fully wired and
plumbed engine. This was one of the delays that we feel was
well worth the effort. It looks great and we hope you guys
feel the same way.





















We are still accepting pre-orders. Realistically this is
now a 1st qtr 2013 arrival. By the time we deliver it
we may be sold out. We have pre-sold approx. 75%
of the production run. Don't get caught snoozing on this
one!

TGIF and new releases.












Rossi 2010 Laguna Seca special edition.
Very cool paint job, we have some great pix
on the site.















1:18 Di Matteo Brothers Fuel Altered by Acme.
If drags are in your theme, then this one is a no-brainer.
A lot of model for the modest price tag.















As most of you know, I'm not a fan of the new "sealed body"
releases by BBR. And only because I think they should have
lowered the price a bit. Regardless, they are still some of the best
when it comes to accuracy and attention to the small details.
And they beat the competition to the punch being the first
mfg to release the awe inspiring Pagani Huayra in 1:18 scale.
Red coming soon.
















Another big week for you 1:43 guys, over 25 new releases.
IXO, Minichamps, and Mattel. Check out all the new 1:43 here.
Street/Racing, Old/New, it's all there this week.















OK a good weekend to all.
Although winter arrived this past week with some low temps,
50's and 60's this weekend and maybe even 70 on Monday.
Near by Killington and Okemo ski areas are open. Good time for
a trip to VT. C'mon up and do your Christmas model shopping too.

Slowly but surely we are getting closer to production of
The Marmon Wasp. Looking like December delivery if
all goes well. To those of you that have pre-ordered:
Our apologies for the long delay, but we can assure you
that the wait will be well worth it. This is a very significant,
if not thee most significant Indy car of all time. We want to
make sure we produce the most accurate and well detailed
model that we possibly can. Your patience is appreciated!
If you haven't pre-ordered, what are you waiting for?

Any basement racers out there?





















I am a long time racing gamer from way back. I've been out of the racing scene for a few years but I recently came out of retirement and purchased a brand new seat set up and I also upgraded to a full on gaming computer.
With much anticipation I received my F1 2012 last Friday. Needless to say that I spent some QT in the basement over the weekend doing some hot laps at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX. How cool is that? You get to drive the new track before they actually run the race.












The graphics are phenomenal and very realistic racing action. And the sound of 18,000 RPM's.........pure music.
I'm all for a Replicarz sponsored online race series.
Who's in?
