Various updates from various places…
The car transporter truck and trailer (limited edition of 300 pieces -does not include the cars) is set for an early 2015 release. The organisation says the Landau Coupes and “some other surprises” are very close.
Apex Replicas will produce Marcos Ambrose’s Sydney 500 DJR/Penske merger V8 Supercar in 1:18 and 1:43 scale. The model can now be pre-orderd on the Apex website, however I’m waiting to see what it actually looks like before I place an order. The livery is set to be unveiled this Friday, but unless it’s significantly different to the DJR season cars (and I’d expect it will be) I’ll give it a miss. The car will carry #66 and delivery of the model is late in the first quarter of next year.
Below is the Audi Formula One car that Fernando Alonso will drive in 201… Err, actually, it’s just one of a bunch of F1 livery concepts by Tim Holmes. Homes has done various ‘alternative’ colour schemes for the current teams, many of which look better than what are currently on the cars! They can be viewed HERE.
Below is the first decorated sample of the Erebus Motorsport V8 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG from the 2014 V8 Supercars Championship Season, driven by Lee Holdsworth. This is the 1/18 verison – I’m looking forward to seeing the 1/43 version.
