Minichamps’ 1:18 replicas of the two different Mercedes AMG GTR Safety Cars from the 2020 Formula One season have just been released. These are the ‘standard’ silver version that was used for the majority of the year, and the example in the celebratory red livery that commemorated Ferrari’s 1,000th world championship start in the Tuscan Grand Prix at Mugello. Of course, both feature the new-for-2020 'WeRaceAsOne' and 'F170' graphics.
In the run up to Christmas, Minichamps provided us with its 1:18 and 1:43 replicas of George Russell’s Mercedes F1 W11 from the 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix. They are limited editions of 1,002 and 1,416 pieces respectively.
We recently received AUTOart’s 1:18 replica of the awesome McLaren Senna, in no less than four different colours. Officially these are Trophy Mira Orange, Vision Victory Grey, Stealth Cosmos Black and Vision Pure White.
Now in stock is AUTOart’s 1:18 replica of the Bugatti Chiron Sport, in French Racing Blue, Italian Red and Rafale Grey.
The drivers’ World Rally Championship was held for the first time in 1979, with a manufacturers’ contest having been run since 1973. It would be a closely fought affair, as Bjorn Waldegard defeated Ford team-mate Hannu Mikkola by just a single point. IXO has recently released 1:18 replicas of both drivers’ Ford Escort Mk.II RS 1800s from that season, along with one for their occasional team-mate Roger Clark.
Tecnomodel’s latest new 1:18 announcement is of a pre-war subject. It is the 1932 Alfa Romeo P3 Tipo B, and there will be versions available for two of the greatest pre-war racing drivers; Rudolf Caracciola and Tazio Nuvolari.
IXO has just released its 1:18 replicas of the 2019 Toyota Yaris WRCs. These are the cars that were driven by that year’s World Rally Champion Ott Tanak and British favourite Kris Meeke.
We’ve always loved Tecnomodel’s commitment to replicating, in 1:18 scale, every racing Ferrari that has ever graced the earth, and we couldn’t be more thrilled that they have extended that dedication to the British Lotus team as well. The Italian’s latest announcement is the Lotus 21, which has never been produced in this scale before.
MCG has just announced that it will be replicating the iconic Ford Escort Mk.II RS 2000 in 1:18 scale.
Collectors of Lewis Hamilton replicas were absolutely spoiled for choice as 2021 came to a close, with a whole host of subjects released for the seven-time Formula One world champion. One of these was Bell’s half-scale offering of his 2021 Mercedes helmet, which was an instant sell-out with the model manufacturer. At the time of going to press, we only had a dozen examples left on the shelf.
Now in stock is one of the most hotly anticipated models of the year, which is Minichamps’ 1:18 replica of Lewis Hamilton’s winning Mercedes F1 W11 from last year’s Eifel Grand Prix at the Nurburgring.
The Mini Cooper S took no less than 32 documented international rally victories, with the bulk of these occurring across the mid-1960s. Paddy Hopkirk’s 1964 Monte Carlo Rally winner was undoubtedly the most famous of these, but in truth that subject has rather been done to death in the diecast world, and so it is refreshing that IXO has produced a 1965 RAC Rally version instead. It has just released its first two 1:18 Mini replicas from the event, with another two to follow shortly.
Cult recently gave us the news that the next iconic classic British car in its 1:18 line-up will be the 1973 MGB GT V8. It will be produced in the quintessentially English-named colours of Harvest Gold (CUL107) and Bracken Orange (CUL107B)! They each have a RRP of £207.99.
Spark recently confirmed that it will be producing the special that all you Lewis Hamilton fans have been waiting for (the Max Verstappen supporters maybe less so!), which of course is Lewis’s 2021 British Grand Prix winning Mercedes in both 1:18 and 1:43 scale.
Look Smart has just provided us with its 1:18 replica of the 1989 Ferrari F1 640 that Nigel Mansell took to victory in the 1989 Hungarian Grand Prix.
AUTOart’s 1:18 replica of the 2019 Aston Martin Vantage has now arrived with us in four different liveries. Officially these are Lime Essence, Skyfall Silver, Hyper Red and Jet Black.
Included in Spark’s recent bumper 1:18 shipment were its replicas of the two Aston Martin Vantage AMRs that won their respective GT classes in last year’s running of the Le Mans 24 Hours. (They have also just been released in 1:43, by the way).
Bell’s latest half-scale helmet release is Charles Leclerc’s 2021 Ferrari lid (which had previously been listed as a BBR model).
