A great article by Autoart that explains the differences between
die cast metal and resin models.
A good read for any collector.

More eye candy............

More eye candy from our friend Tjeu. This guy does amazing things with a camera and not just with model cars. Big thank you and a shout out to Tjeu for his incredible shots of our upcoming 1:18 Indy Roadsters.

And the answer is:

YES the 1986 LeMans winner in 1:18 by Spark does come with the Rothmans decal set to convert to full livery. If you didn't pre-order, now is the time to get one in. This one will sell out quick.

Minichamps to do 1:43 F1 in resin?

This comes as no shock to me, but this just in from Minichamps moments ago. 2012 McLaren F1 1:43 to be produced in resin. Yes I said resin. Along with the resin comes a 30% price hike. In my opinion this will only push more F1 collectors to Spark. Just my .02 cents........

Resin is the new wave in 1:43 production and that will not change anytime soon if ever.

1:18 BMW Exclusive

2010 Jeff Koons Art Car as ran at LeMans.
Spark still maintains that they will produce this in 1:43.
I have my doubts as many of you do.
This 1:18 gem was a BMW dealership exclusive, produced by Minichamps.
If you pre-ordered with Replicarz, you got one.
Getting scarce, check ebay is my only suggestion.

This guy is incredible

We can all learn a lot from him.

Lime Rock Historics

It's no Monterey, but saw some incredible cars from the past.
No rhyme or reason, just sharing some iphone pix with you guys.
Hope you enjoy. They put on a great show on the race track too!

My lovely wife Val thinking about buying me this GT40 kit car.

You can have the GT40 if you buy me this Panoz.......
