More stock of the 1:18 scale Porsche 917L in Martini colours that sold out extremely quickly a few weeks ago when the first shipment arrived.
Unfortunately there is currently a dispute going on at the Fremantle wharves and this shipment may be affected. We hope to have these modelsavailable on the website on Monday but have not yet confirmed a delivery day. To be notified when these items become available please keep an eye on the front page news section and also keep your watchlist up to date.
We will also be releasing the 1:43 scale 2003 Team Brock VX V8 Supercars of Jason Bright and Paul Weel along with the 1:43rd Holden Commodore VY SS in Phantom (black metallic) and Red Hot.
Possum Bourne Commemorative Model.
At the moment we are planning on releasing the Possum Bourne Commemorative models next Thursday (13th of November) at 2pm Perth time but due to the wharf dispute we cannot confirm this at the moment. Once the item is in stock orders will be open for everyone (including NZ orders) as stock has already arrived in New Zealand and is on sale and will be at Pukekohe this weekend.. As with the Autoart shipment please keep an eye on the front page news section and have your watchlist up to date to be notified the second these models are made available.
All of the advanced orders are being readied so that we can begin to ship the second the container is unloaded.
With Christmas fast approaching to avoid dissapointment please be sure to have any orders you wish to place for Christmas presents in as quickly as possible to avoid any possibilities of delays in postage.
New Model Announcements.
Minichamps have announced the following new model for their program:
Valentino Rossi Honda RC211V MotoGP race bike from the Valencia round of the 2003 season. For this round of the season the team ran a competition where fans could design the livery for the bike to carry.
The winning design was a '60's style design and looks sensational. Couple the special livery with the fact that this bike claimed Valentino's 3rd championship in the premier class (500GP and MotoGP) and he has also announced that he will not be riding for Honda next year, making this his last Honda. The model will also be a limited edition.
Selections close tomorrow afternoon at 5pm Perth time for the New Zealand round of the V8 Supercar championship held at Pukekohe Park Raceway. So far this has been a dream track for local hero Greg Murphy. With the team riding high over the previous few rounds successes Kmart Racing #51 will be hard to beat.
Special Prototype Auctions.
Two auctions have begun on www.bianteauctions.com for two very special items.
1:64 scale Holden Stormrider VY SS ute. This is one of the first samples of the Stormrider stunt ute and the livery has been produced on a blue base instead of red as the model should have. There was only two of these models produced and no more will be made available.
1:64 BA Falcon V8 Supercar. Dick Johnson Racing #17. This is one of the first painted samples of the 2003 BA Falcons as driven by Steven Johnson. There has been only two model produced and this sample has several details that will show its status of a prototype when compared to the yet to be released production model such as:
Manufacturer details are not shown on the underside of the car.
FALCON on the front of the car should be black, on this model it is red.
No front and rear window heater bars are on this model.
Models such as these are very rarely offered for sale so this is a great opportunity to add something very special to your collection.
Allfunds generated by these auctions will be added to theproceeds generated by the sales of the possum Bourne Commemorative model and will be donated to the Possum Bourne Foundation. An extremely worthwhile cause.
