    Hi - I have two 1/8th scale Paul's Model Art F1 cars. Both Schumacher, one Ferrari and one is Benetton. I know Paul's Model Art transitioned over to the Minichamps branding on my smaller cars. Does anyone have info on these 1/8th scale models. Do you know how much they cost new? Any thoughts on what they are worth now? Thanks.

    Not sure what the B194 would go for, difficult to say with the Benetton stuff as I’ve had some absolute bargains. I know that the F310B would be a lot of money, did you apply the Marlboro decals as they were seldom offered with the cigarette advertising.

    Unfortunately these larger models from PMA haven't really aged very well.

    The detail levels are pretty basic by today's standard of 1/8th scale models.

    Still cool though.

    I’d agree for the most part but I think they’ll become a very niche collectible. Think original 70s attempts at 1/43rd - immensely collectible but by modern standards practically they are kitsch

    Minichamps announced three new releases of the B194 ; which will water down the value of yours possibly, but they are probably much more expensive that what you purchase price was, they can be seen here on the Minichamps 1/8 scale page :https://www.minichamps.de/landingpage-einszuacht/

    That looks more like 1/12 to me. Can you tell us how long it is? Thanks

    I'll take a measure for you, but trust me it's 1/8. I have several other 1/8 and 1/12... Thanks.
