I am trying to locate a Spark Jaguar E Type 2+2 in blue. They are on eBay but are outside of the EU and will cost around £25 extra in duty and PO handling costs. I have tried Miniboutik & Grand Prix models. Any other suggestions?


Do you mean this one from the Netherlands ? It's £6.50 more than the cheapest from the US, but that's a small price to pay if you're saving £25 :

Here's another option. The Motorsport Collector in the US has it on sale reduced to USD 56 (£ 44). Because your saving £16 on the purchase price, that should reduce the duty so maybe the net price will be less ?

Price looks good but postage is the same value! The total for model + import/handling would be above £100.I am hatching " a cunning plan"...............................

Its surprising how quickly this one has disappeared, both from eBay and online stores. It seems there is still one here in the UK :

Anybody know where to procure some racing RedLine Ferrari's from the 1960's and 1970's? (other than ebay, I mean).

Of the 1960's models I have the following:

1962 Le Mans 24 hours Ferrari LM TRI #6
1962 Le Mans 24 hours Ferrari 250 GTO #19
1962 Le Mans 24 hours Ferrari 250 GTO #22

1963 Le Mans 24 hours Ferrari 330 TRI #10
1963 Le Mans 24 hours Ferrari 250 GTO #24



This one is very highly available on ebay:
1962 Le Mans 24 hours Ferrari 250 GTO #58 as well as one from the Targa Florio
Lots of seventies models available as well (the 365s)

Anybody else know smth tha tmight be available?

The Redline Ferrari's from the 1960's are becoming hard to find.

This is one of my favourites :

Also, don't forget the Looksmart 1965 Ferrari 250 LM's which are really Redlines by another name.

True. I bought the breadvan and am expecting it to arrive any day now. :) I'm gonna have the three podium Ferraris, the breadvan and one more Volpi Ferrari then. I'd love to have more, though.

Thanks for the hint, Alfaholic. Just got it from ebay as it was 50% discounted and therefore came realtively cheap.

I want to thank Chris (aka The Maltings) for organizing me the ESM Ferrari. He ordered and sent it to me. I'm glad we have such nice forum members who help each other out. :)
