    Wow, that looks great, Tom!
    I don´t want the entire collection. I can´t find an order option.
    Do you know, how and where to order single models?

    Ebay after they are released. I think it's an Italian only subscription. Maybe take a holiday in Italy to pick them up at the newsstands if you live in Europe. I only want the older models myself since the new F1 cars after they went to the turbo formula look and sound terrible. The FIA is making Lemans cars look better so F1 should be better looking soon hopefully.

    They plan 60 cars total with the series going until 2023!! If you go to the second page on the LE GRANDI FORMULA 1 website page you see these 4 also.

    I hope they will consider the gaps at Ferrari F1 at 1/24. Nobody needs a F2002, which was already released by Revell, Hot Wheels and Tameo. But SF70H and SF90 are very welcome.
    And 312T2 ´76 is amazing -it fills an important gap between Marui 312T and Wave 312T2 ´77!

    I´m hoping for models like 126C3, 126C4, 312T5, F1´86,... that would be wonderful.
    4 out of the first 16 models are Ferrari, that means 25%. If they continue this range, we might expect 15 Ferrari?!

    I have the 1/24th Monza and it is nice and the shape looks very accurate. Will need some details added like brakes, but overall I would say it is more accurate than most 1/24th Fujimi kits. Hate the colors, and mine will be black and I might also do a red one. Here is the black Monza I saw earlier this year at Continental Ferrari below the model, but mine will have the single cockpit fairing headrest.

    Sounds good. Looks like the Monza isn´t available in Europe yet, only from US-Dealers.

    I found a problem on the Burago Monza. They made the wheels all the same on both sides. They are directional on the real car.

    Burago did the wrong directional wheels on the 1/18th model also. The 1/24th model was supposed to have opening engine and rear cover but they decided to make it closed with just an door opening. Half the detail is still on the model but you cant see it because they put a rivet to stop it from opening up on both the front and back. It is a very nice model but the wheels are not excusable by any means. The BBR models in 1/43rd and 1/18th are correct, so spend the extra money if you like those scales. For 1/24th this is it.

    Centauria doesn't sell them outside Italy. I asked them when they were releasing Le Grandi Ferrari series.
    You have to wait, untill they appear on eBay... (hint: use ebay.it instead of ebay.com - for some reason it is the only way to find some offers from Italy)

    Here is my latest achievement in the Hachette 1/24 WRC - the newest release:

    The 1994 Monte Carlo winning Ford Escort Cosworth RS – a 4WD race car with a Sierra running gear in an Escort greenhouse (longitudinal mounted engine with a Garrett turbocharger), introduced for the 1993 season where it won 5 world championship events (2nd in the championship of makes - French champion Francois Delecour was also runner-up in the drivers championship) and 2 more wins followed in 1994: Francois Delecour on his top of the game took his most prestigeous win in the 1994 Rally Monte Carlo – this car has been chosen for Hachettes WRC series: fine details, perfect proportions and livery – a truly very good representation of the Original (9 out of 10 points !)

    The dials have been deleted again, but overall this is an excellent replacement for the 1/24 Tamiya kit which is asking for sky-high prices on ebay at present - catch it if you can ! On to the pics:

    Looks like they are continuing the Opel series. The Opel GT seems to be a revised tool with no opening parts and more accurate detail. Hachette does amazing models!!! This is by far the best 1/24th or 1/25th scale Opel GT model, much better than that 1/25th plastic kit or the Tin Wizard 1/24th kit.

    Yesterday arrived issue # 26, the Lancia Stratos HF, 1978 San Remo rally winner with Markku Alén. In 1978, Fiat decided to favour the 131 Abarth (derived from a family sedan) in the world championship to raise their sporty image and to push sales and at the same time pulled the plug out of the highly sophisticated, Ferrari-driven Lancia Stratos; so Alitalia sponsorship went from Lancia (Fiat’s daughter company since 1969) to Fiat and the Stratos was dressed up in the red-white-black Pirelli livery for 1978, its last season as a works rally car (where it was entered only in 4 events).

    In October 1978, Fiat driver Markku Alén took his chance to try a works Stratos – and won the San Remo rally outright! He would have been the very first world champion, had the world driver’s championship been introduced a year earlier…

    A spectacular model, with ultra-wide tires used on the tarmac stages; in an Italian forum the comments were very positive apart from a small issue: sharply bent rear license plate (see pics!) – which caused some kind of tiny ****storm.

    A great model in a seldom seen livery (1974 Marlboro, 1975-77 Alitalia and 1978 Pirelli – all other sponsor versions are for different private entries).

    On to the pics...
