2014 Catalogue:

http://www.mixdiffus...75394732396.pdf

Plenty of new 1/18 f1 releases, including a 1/18 Leyton House and Williams FW07! Personally of their 1/18 f1 range I own their Lotus 25, '68 Mclaren and 2013 Lotus and I have to say I'm impressed with the quality of the overall paint finish and finer details. Looking forward to picking up plenty more 1/18 releases in the future.

I am really tempted with the 960 porsche lemans & the GT3 RSR lemans cars also. They have good details, and a fair price. Comparing to other resin manufacturers.

Also I am waiting for the 996 porsche GT1 lemans winner! :drool5:

Me too! I love it!

I like the Renault Magnum F1 team trucks a lot, I might look into one of those.

F**k you Photobucket.

1/18 Leyton House, Matra MS80, Williams FW07 and possibly an Alfa 33tt2 for me. Why autoart chose to model the variant of the 33tt they did is beyond me, it's as ugly as hell.

Some great Le Mans and F1 releases to look forward to. I was hoping they'd do the chrome Deltawing in 1/18 this year since they just released the black one a couple of months ago. Maybe next year?

Great list! The 1/18 Piquet 87 Williams is going to be very tempting... Also interesting they're making a few 1/64's, I might have to get the Deltawing.

Thanks Silverstar :rock:  for posting the catalog, really helpful in planning the year :yahoo:
It's good and bad that Spark don't make more 1/18 F1 models. Good because I would go (even more) bankrupt buying them all, and bad because I would REALLY love to get the Lotus 43 BRM Jim Clark in 1/18.

I believe the white mrx-01 nr:6 s the first to come out this year.
I think also that this model will go fast just like the XJ-R14.
My hopes to see the LC2 this year are little but maybe spark wil give us a suprise.

You think that the mazdas are selling out quickly?
I will buy it immediately then when they are released.
Is AutoArt making the LC2?

No i ment Spark sorry sometimes my typing goes faster than toughts :P
About the mazda yes i think that i can sell quickly especially the renown version not that the car had a great history under mazda's name but as a predecessor copy from the xjr14 it can.
I dont know if it is limited like the old xjr14 if so you better can get one.

I'll be going for one of the Mazdas, but it will be the #5 Renown car as the #6 was a DNF due to an accident.

The #5 car came in 4th overall at LM, with Brit Johnny Herbert as one of the drivers :). The car also came in 2nd earlier in the season at Silverstone,  the car sported the more traditional white and blue Mazda livery (similar to the #18 787B)

1/18 Porsche 911 GT1.

My body is ready. It will sit so incredibly well together with my TS020 and the V12 LMR. If only I could find an AUTOart CLK-LM for sale, those are getting ridiculously rare.

Now just a 1/18 Toyota TS010, and my life is complete.

Already ordered the MXR-01 Mazda,despite the fact it was DNF at 1992 Le Mans i think it looks fantastic.

I'll take the Renown version(5th place)as well when it comes out.

The GT1 911 looks interesting.

As for the 935 Moby Dick,i'll hold for the Valvoline car.

I must admit the more i look at the Mazda the more i can see myself giving in and picking this version up as well as the Renown car lol

Checking out some better photos on Raceland's site, i noticed the tyres have vertical ribs that run around the sides of the tyres. I don't suppose anyone knows what these are as i can't see them on photos i have of the car.

That's a good point there,don't know either what these vertical ribs are...

Spark used the same wheels as the XJR-14 had...

IMHO i think you should get both Mazdas mate.. :twocents:
