Very much so Tom - every look finds something else on this model.

That is rather in-your-face, in a very good way. Fantastic model, I want the 1:43.

Lime Porsche not really my cup of tea, but the Singer and Honda really are. Fantastic looking in their own ways. Played a lot of Gran Prix Legends in the late 90's (the 1967 F1 scene) and have always had a weakness for this era of F1 cars.

Same here... :lol: Very nice add Andy, so far I've resisted temptation to add another to go alongside my Orange version BUT if I ever cave in it would only be for the White (with black wheels) or the Purple or Black versions (despite the fact that Black was never ever released as a 1:1 over here :cry: think it was an option over the pond though.

Think a visit to the museum is very long overdue and will hopefully see this beauty first hand 8-)

There is something about the mid sixties onwards F1 cars though i'm more of a 70s man

Thanks Alistair
Well these in any colour are getting like hens teeth. I know the purple is long sold out, but Spark released the white as a shop edition so that could the one available. Not sure if they have released black

As always you will be welcome and if you are coming I'll make purple and green are available for one's delectation

Fascinating car, must be a huge model. Looks great, but I think a 1:43 will pose enough display problems for me...

It's a very large model Tom. I may have to get a 1/12th case for it!

Cheers Simon. Maybe a bubble car

Very impressive Andy. I guess if you sell off 20 more 1:43's you'll be able to make room for it.

I guess it's probably around the size of a Smart Car - maybe you could put a small engine in the tray and ride it to the shops!

Cheers Ian. More than 20 i'm thinking but i suspect i will let an 18 or two go to make the space

The BMW M5 E34 was introduced in 1989 with a straight six 3.6 litre engine producing 315hp and 266 lb ft and was incidentally the last M5 to have an engine linked to a BMW Motorsport engine. Each car was hand built. In 1991 the engine displacement was increased to 3.8 litres giving 340hp and 295 lb ft and in 1992 in LHD only a Touring was introduced which was the M Divisions first Touring and also the last car they hand built. 891 were made before production ceased in 1996
