Minichamps 1-18 2020 Formula One safety cars diecast model car review

Originally published on: 06/03/2022 12:26

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.

IXO 1-18 1979 Acropolis Ford Escort MK.II RS 1800 diecast model car review

Originally published on: 06/03/2022 11:31

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 1-18 1961/62 Lotus 21 diecast model car review

Originally published on: 06/03/2022 10:55

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.

Bell 1-2 Hamilton 2021 Mercedes helmet review

Originally published on: 06/03/2022 10:14

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.

IXO 1-18 1965 RAC Rally Mini Cooper S diecast model car review

Originally published on: 16/10/2021 14:29

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.
