Minichamps Senna Collection

Post by Jager » Tue Aug 18, 2015 12:47 pm

I received news of several "new" 1:43 Senna F1 models from Minichamps.
We're pleased to announce that Minichamps have confirmed they have renewed their license with the Senna Foundation and will shortly begin delivering Senna items in both 1:18 and 1:43 scales as part of the long running Minichamps Ayrton Senna collection.

In addition to the previously announced 1:18 F1 models below, they have now added six 1:43 models to the mix. The first models from this group should begin to appear around the end of this year. The 1:43 models are :

540854312 : 1985 Lotus Renault 97T
540864312 : 1986 Lotus Renault 98T
540874312 : 1987 Lotus Honda 99T
540884312 : 1988 McLaren Honda MP4/4
540914301 : 1991 McLaren Honda MP4/6
540944302 : 1994 Williams Renault FW16
As far as I remember, all of the above formed part of the original Senna collection, so this appears to just be Minichamps milking the Senna name for more profits :( .

But Minichamps will never make the same model twice and that's what makes them different from other manufacturers ;) :lol:

I'll most likely pick up the 1985 Lotus. I know for awhile there they were commanding some fairly big bucks.
