Thanks Lee

A little disappointing for me (I can't remember the last time I bought a new IXO), but hopefully those with other themes will find something of interest.

Not much news for roadcars. Mainly reissues from PW series. For what I've seen, ixo/prx prices went up with about 20%...

The '2016 Spark Catalogue' only includes their main ranges. During the year they always announce their additional 'specialist' ranges such as WRC, F1, National Themes, etc.

The 2016 Spark Catalogue available on their website is very low-resolution, and a lot of our Customers have commented that it's difficult to read the small, blurred text. We passed on this feedback to Spark, and they have how added a hi-resolution PDF version (nice to see a manufacturer respond so quickly to customer feedback). It's a big download - 45.6MB - but at least it's very easy to read.

There are now two links at the bottom of the Spark homepage...
1. Click on Browse our catalogue to view the original low-res online catalogue.
2. Click on Download our catalogue to download the hi-res PDF.

It is nice to see a manufacturer respond to customer feedback! I've updated the first post in the thread to include the direct link to the pdf.

How many differences can you spot between the online catalog and this pdf version? Good to see Spark seems to have provided us with the latest and greatest.

I see many images of the real car have been updated with a photo of the model.

Some have changed:
page 6: 18S161 is now the #5 car instead of the #4 car
page 42: S4468 is now blue instead of white

Some have been added:
page 30: 43DA16
page 36: S4953
page 38: S4954, S4955
page 45: S2304

Well spotted Douglas. Yes, Spark has updated their online Catalogue since it was originally uploaded. Hopefully these updates have also been applied to the hardcopy of the Catalogue which is due soon.

Some of our Customers have mentioned that the 45.6MB online 2016 Spark Catalogue is simply too large, so we have uploaded a smaller (only 9.5MB) version to the SPR Models website. It is just as easy to read, but faster to download. Simply click on the ‘Catalogue’ button on our website, and from the dropdown menu select the Catalogue you would like to view.

You'll notice that we have also added a PDF copy of the 2016 TSM Catalogue.

You may also notice that we don't have a PDF version of the 2105 Spark Catalogue on our site. We did display a link to this Catalogue on the Spark site, but when they deleted the copy the link of course no longer worked. Does anyone have a PDF of the 2015 Catalogue that we can upload to our site? It would be very much appreciated.

ugh guys?


I'm getting really excited seeing s4410, 300sl le mans. Does this mean we could in the future see 300sl road cars? Nobody does a nice midrange 1/43 of them, they all have crappy trim and are bubbly looking. HELP SPARK, MAKE DEM STREET CARSSSS, Oh yeah and a convertible please.


Also excited for db4 convertible and db4 grey.

Spark is great.
Please check out my collection of mostly vintage but also modern race cars and street cars.

Better late than never I suppose. PDF versions of some online Flash-based catalogs:
