Spark’s 2015 Classic F1 Announcements Are Online Now

Today we put 135 new 1:43 classic F1 announcements from Spark onto the Diecast Legends website.

Doing these announcements still remains one of the highlights of the year for us and, as ever, there’s loads of great subjects to choose from, which have never been modelled before.

A few of the highlights, in our opinion, included Michael Schumacher’s 1994 Monaco Grand Prix winning Benetton B194 (SPK4481), Martin Brundle’s ‘Art Car’ liveried Ligier JS39 from the 1993 Australian Grand Prix (SPK3979), the Lola T370 that Graham Hill took to his last ever points finish in the 1974 Swedish Grand Prix (SPK4352), the McLaren M23 that James Hunt took to victory in the 1976 French Grand Prix (SPK4362), John Watson’s 1982 Detroit Grand Prix winning McLaren MP4-1B (SPK4302), the Lotus 80 that Mario Andretti guided to third in Spain in 1979 (SPK4240), and Thierry Boutsen’s 1989 Canadian Grand Prix winning Williams FW12C (SPK4322).

We could carry on, but half the fun is having a good peruse through all these new subjects. Click here to see them all.

Meanwhile AUTOart sent us a new delivery. We received the first of the brand’s diecast/plastic composite releases: the 1:18 2013 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 in green (AA81306). If we’re being honest, although they don’t have as many opening parts as an AUTOart 1:18 diecast replica, we think that they look just as good.

We also received the 1:18 2013 Lamborghini Veneno in white (AA74507) and green (AA74509), as well as the 1:18 2005 Gumpert Apollo S in orange (AA71302), the 1:18 1991 Bugatti EB110 GT in white (AA70978) and the 1:18 2010 Hennessey Venom GT in carbon black (AA75401).
