Peterson Marches Top TrueScale Delivery

posted in Road Cars, Resin, Formula 1 |

Today we received a baker’s dozen of replicas from TrueScale Miniatures.

Present on the delivery were the next two subjects in the company’s Ronnie Peterson Collection: Super Swede’s 1976 Italian Grand Prix winning March 761 (TSM124329), and the patriotically livered March 761 that Peterson drove in the 1976 South African Grand Prix (TSM124328).

Also present were no less than five 1:43 Brabham F1 cars. Most unusual was the 1978 Brabham BT48 press car (TSM144305). The bodywork of the car was covered in white rectangles called heat exchangers, which were used instead of a radiator. Unfortunately this experiment didn’t work, and Brabham had to use the humble radiator.

Along with that we received the BT46s that Niki Lauda (TSM144301) and John Watson (TSM144304) drove in the 1978 South African Grand Prix, as well as the Brabhams that Lauda (TSM144302) and Watson (TSM144303) raced in the 1978 Monaco Grand Prix.

Away from F1, the highlight was the 1:43 1965 Land Rover Series I Recovery Truck (TSM124380).

TrueScale also announced a new model today, which takes the form of the 1:43 2014 Christmas Edition replica of the 1935 Duesenberg SJ Roadster (TSM144369).

This festive miniature features Santa behind the wheel of the Duesenberg, which is loaded with presents and decorated with a wreath. It is a limited edition of just 300 pieces worldwide.
