One of the latest new 1:18 announcements from Tecnomodel sadly has an inescapable sense of tragedy around it. It is the 1967 Ferrari 312 F1, which has never been made available in this scale before.
Truth be told, we wouldn’t normally be that excited about the announcement of a 1:18 Porsche Formula 2 car. However, add British motor racing legends Stirling Moss and Graham Hill into the mix, and suddenly our opinion varies considerably!
Tecnomodel have really pulled out all the stops this month, announcing a whole host of classic Formula One cars that have never been produced in 1:18 scale before. One of these is the 1955 Ferrari 625 F1.
Unsurprisingly, Spark were quick off the mark confirming their specials celebrating Lewis Hamilton clinching the 2019 F1 championship at the American Grand Prix, announcing them within a week of the race.
Minichamps has just re-released its 1:12 replica of T.E. Lawrence’s Brough Superior SS100. The man that Winston Churchill called ‘the greatest ever Englishman’ loved his Broughs, but he tragically lost his life on this machine just 500 yards from Clouds Hill, his Dorset cottage.

Porsche introduced its 917 in time for the 1969 world sportscar championship. This significant car has never been replicated in 1:18 before, but thanks to BBR, that will not remain the case for much longer.
The 1992 season was completely dominated by the Williams-Renaults of Nigel Mansell and Riccardo Patrese. But race day at Spa provided mixed conditions. The race started dry, then everyone had to pit for wets as the rain arrived. Then the circuit dried out again, so the key was timing the switch back to slicks.
A couple of months ago, Minichamps released its 1:18 special commemorating Lewis Hamilton securing the 2017 Formula One world championship, at the Mexican Grand Prix. As we went to press on this issue, our remaining stock levels of it dipped into single figures.
Aston Martin launched the trackday-only Vulcan in 2015, at the Geneva Motor Show. Only 24 were produced, each with a price tag of 2.3 million dollars.

We are now down to our last four or five pieces of each of CMC’s trio of 1:18 replicas of Juan Manuel Fangio’s 1956 Ferrari D50. These remain the only 1:18 replicas ever produced of the Argentinian’s world championship winner from that season.
The first two colours of Cult’s 1:18 replica of the 1968 Jaguar E-Type Series II, dark blue and dark green, have already been and gone. The third version, continuing Cult’s preference for dark colours for this model, is due to be released soon.
Produced from 1965 to 1971 the DB6 replaced, as you would expect, the DB5. It featured improved aerodynamics and specification over its predecessor. At the time, it had the longest production run of any Aston Martin model.
