Automodelli Studio Newsletter February 2016

All items are 1/43rd scale unless otherwise stated. All prices are subject to change due to exchange rate

We have learnt that Spark are now doing direct distribution in France/Germany (possibly other countries) which means retailers can buy from Spark without going through an importer/wholesaler. This means those shops can sell considerably cheaper than those of us that have to use importer/wholesalers, so we will no longer stock any Spark/Bizarre model.

Any model from these guys can and will be supplied if you pre order, and any model that has already been ordered will be supplied. So basically up yours, Spark. I’m sure the few we sell will not make much difference but this will come back to bite them as I’m not the only one who feels this way.

From now until sold out, all Spark/Bizarre stock at 25% off marked price, no other discounts apply. See Ready Made Models in stock on the website.

On a happier note, I would like to announce a major new supplier The Porsche Museum Collection, these are exclusive models made for the Porsche Museum, Frankfurt Germany, most models are made by Spark but a few come from Minichamps and Schuco. Some have been released under the manufacturers own label but many are exclusive to the museum and there are special colours too, all have their own packaging. Some models are available to Porsche employers only but we can get these too, prices will vary due to exchange rate but currently they are around $100. Models include Le Mans & Daytona winners as well as road cars, below are a couple of examples for the Porsche 918 Spyder with or without roof and not available anywhere else.
