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.
The mavens at Replicarz continue the modeling history of the Indy 500 with their two latest 1:43 scale releases. Both the Replicarz Lor Schell Special from 1940 and the 1941 Elgin Pin Special cars are again Maserati 8CTFs.
Artist Yuriy Shevchuk captures the beauty of the cars, the essence of a moment in a great race and the atmosphere of the event surrounding it.
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:
The CMC Bugatti T35 is widely recognized as a fantastic piece of 1/18th scale modeling. Exquisite materials and finish make this a must-have for your collection. Some years back, I spent an entire weekend at Lime Rock’s Vintage Festival staring at a full-size Bugatti T35 just feet away.
1/43rd Replicarz Boyle Special, both 1939 and 1940 Indy 500 winners, are incredibly nice. These are leap years better than an old Brumm model.
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.
