The new Replicarz 1/43 Domino’s Indy winner is a winner of a model. The 23rd release in the series of 1/43 scale Indy cars sets a new high in presentation.
First impressions can often be wrong. Or not. That was the case when I opened the box containing the MA Scale Target Dallara DW12 kit.
Until recently, Indy car models in 1/43 were slim. Replicarz keeps expanding the built-up selection and MA Scale seeks to create kits of every Indy winner.
The Replicarz Fittipaldi Penske PC18 that won the Indy 500 in 1989 is terrific. Replicarz continues the revival of Indy car models with this latest release.
More Indycar models are here or coming from Replicarz, Brickyard Models, MA Scale and Brumm. Whether it’s a built model or kit, you’re in for a treat.
American racing subjects have generally been ignored by the modeling industry. Model retailer Replicarz has taken it upon themselves to remedy the situation with their line of Replicarz Exclusives.
I’ve been to the Watkins Glen race circuit many times, in all kinds of weather. Searing hot to serious cold and drenching rain. I survived the Bog. I love the place. Here then some notes and a few photos from the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen:
Spare a thought for a car that had it all, and still has never been properly modeled EVER in any scale. Outside of an obsolete transkit in 1/25 scale, nothing. It also is the only car/driver/team to ever win the impossible-to-win USAC Triple Crown, consisting of the Indy 500, Pocono 500 and Ontario 500. The Jim Hall, Al Unser, Indy 500 winner Lola T500.
The last time anyone produced 1/43rd scale Indy car models in any number was in the 90s, CART models by Onyx (not so good) and Minichamps/Action (pretty good). Part One.
In our last installment, we offered hope for Indy-car model car collectors. The selection is better than ever and we’re spoiled for choice. But how about that model of driver X from 19xx?
