Look Smart will be making historic Ferrari F1s and Le Mans winners. I’m guessing these will be made by Spark as they are in the $150/160 price range rather than the $200 plus for the usual Look Smart models

Here is a new release from Mysterious Models, a Ferrari 612 Can-Am 1969 driven by Chris Amon. Built only $275.00

The first batch of Alfa Rome GTA kits has arrived from Arena Models these are very nice kits, main parts in resin with some white metal for the smaller items and lots of photo etching for the more experienced builders. So work has begun on the decals, these are for the 1967 Bathurst cars #60E Doug Chivas/Max Stewart (3rd overall and 1st in class) #61E Kevin Bartlett/Laurie Stewart #62E Syd Fisher/Paul Hawkins #63E Arthur David/ Paul Mander. Multi version kit should be available April price $115 for this very comprehensive kit. Built to order any version $295

In recent years we have bought in kits from SMTS, Jemmpy, Marsh Models and more recently Arena because I didn’t see the point in recreating kits that were already out there but now the latest in house produced kit is ready. The John Goss/Brian Muir Jaguar XJS from Bathurst 1986 finished a lowly 24th but Goss had won the year before in TWR car so we thought this was worth making. Kit price $85 or built to order $250

They have been a long time coming but we finally have the Norm Beechey 1966 Chevy Nova from ACE Model Cars. Apparently their Chinese manufacturers stuffed up the first batch and sent them out with a satin finish. You can polish these up and they look ok, probably more authentic than the high gloss finished models. These are price at $80 for the non gloss finish and the gloss finish ones are $100 these models are limited to 200 of each colour. There is a road version too, in red with red interior.
