Minichamps Reveals Schedule #9

Today Minichamps revealed its ninth release schedule of the year, which takes us up to the beginning of September.

The good news is that, compared to the last few months, this schedule represents something of an improvement for the diecast giants.

On the first week, beginning 12th August, we will take delivery of the 1:18 2011 McLaren MP4-12C in metallic red (PG133022), and Pastor Maldonado’s 2012 Spanish Grand Prix winning Williams FW34 (DC212418B) in 1:43.

In the week after that, beginning 19th August, Minichamps will be releasing the 1:8 Marco Simoncelli 2011 helmet (PO110858). Other interesting replicas coming that week will include the 1:43 1970 Alfa Romeo Giulia in red (P120906), and the 1:18 #21 Rowe Racing Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 that Michael Zehe, Marko Hartung, Roland Rehfeld and Mark Bullitt drove in the 2012 Nurburgring 24 Hours (PG123121).

On the penultimate week of the schedule, beginning 26th August, Minichamps will be sending us the 1:18 #2 Prospeed Competition Porsche 911 GT3 R that Jan Heylen and Petri Lappalainen drove during the 2011 European GT3 season (PG118902), as well as the 1:43 #21 Mercedes 300 SLR that Andre Simon and Karl Kling raced in the 1955 Le Mans 24 Hours (P553021).

The final week of the schedule is easily the most exciting. On the week beginning 2nd September we will receive the 1:12 Valentino Rossi 2010 Laguna Seca figure (PO100146) and the 1:12 Marco Simoncelli 2011 ‘Wheelie’ figure (PO110058). They will also release the 1:43 1986 Rover Vitesse 3.5 V8 in silver (P138500B)

In other news, our exclusive 1:43 Michael Schumacher 7 World Championships Presentation (DCL007) is now available. Only 77 examples of this extremely limited piece have been created. It consists of Michael’s 1994 and 1995 Benettons, and his five Ferraris from 2000 to 2004. In the centre of the weighted carbon fibre effect base sits a plinth detailing Michael’s career statistics. A perspex cover is also provided. It’s finally here!
