Does anyone have any information on what Spark intend to release this year and any news on new models? I've noticed this month they've put out a number of 997 models, 2 Le Man cars  and 3 Nurburgring 24 hour cars. I'd just be interested in what else they are going to release in 1:18 this year :)

cheers

Me too, I just took a look on their site, but they only show the models they've just released. The 'coming soon' section for 1/18 is blank :(

F**k you Photobucket.

I know only Audi R18 E-Tron LM 2012 Winner is coming for sure.
I guess they will also make other Porsche Rally Safari versions and 997 racers (cause I saw them on pre-order LOL). Probably Lancia LC2.
Technically they make 1:18 of what was popular in their 1:43 line.

I saw that, can't remember where though. I'll be getting it. I'd quite like a 1/18 Delta Wing too.

I will get the R18 E-tron, but I just can't imagine how much $$$ they will charge for that model.... Shame maisto don't make any more those 1:18 GT series of them, the GT1s, R8 were really nice cars for that price!

I came across the Spark 2013 catalogue online.  Certainly some interesting releases coming from them over the coming year. Next buy for me is going to be the 1:18 MOMO 935

I see Spark have released the 1:18 2007 Le Mans Porsche GT3 RSR Flying Lizard this week.

I bought that Flying Lizard car & another Porsche  - The cars are lovely, but what I'm not keen on is the new style packaging, when I opened the box for the first one I though the seller had repacked it themselves. I opened the second one & was the same.
It's nice that the base has the details on it, but the foam is a bit dodgy.

I've seen that the Le Mans 1987 winner is out now too.

F**k you Photobucket.

Have you done a model review of the Flying Lizard Porsche art car, Craig? I'm such a fan of that art car, but I've seen the Toyota TS030 hybrid and the Audi R18 E-Tron up for pre-order as well.

That's 3 very expensive models I really want in my collection.

I don't do reviews really - I can say that I like it a lot (spark are one of my favourite makers) if you check ebay, there are some for about £80 + shipping, where as they're usually £120 + shipping.

If you like the car etc you should get one. They did a really good job on it. I've got three new spark cars now, the Flying Lizard, Kremer and the Haribo car.

F**k you Photobucket.

Aye, I have the Porsche WSC-95 by them and I thought they did a fantastic job on the livery and all the small details. Which is why I'd figure they would not dissappoint with the complex Flying Lizard livery.

I bought that model the other day & the 'Moby Dick' Porsche from them, just waiting for then to get delivered. I must have about twenty Spark models now.

If you're after the Flying Lizard you should do it.

F**k you Photobucket.
