Today we're happy to announce the Sir Jack Brabham T53 Cooper has gone on pre-order.
B18702D - Cooper T53 - #1 Jack Brabham (1960)
Since we put the T51 on pre-order last week we have completely sold out. The T53 will be arriving into stores before the T51 so pre-order this fantastic model today to make sure you own a piece of motorsport history. For some high-res pics check out our Facebook page.
We are also very pleased to be able to announce some exciting new projects this month.
In 1:12th scale, we have another few Norton Motorcycles to announce. With the first one recently being sent to stores, we hope you have been blown away by the detail we have been able to incorporate into these stunning Nortons. These three that we are putting to order today will be released in 2012, however from a production planning point of view, we are announcing them to collectors today.
In 1:18th we have two exciting announcements that have been on the drawing board for sometime. The first is the HJ Sandman Van in beautiful Deauville Blue. We have had this sample for a while and everyone who has seen it, including those of you who attended the Diecast Model Expo, have had nothing but good words to say about it.

Next we have a bit of a special item – Dick Johnson and John Bowe’s #41 Ford Sierra RS500 that they raced in England – at the 1988 RAC Tourist Trophy at Silverstone. This was Round 10 of the European Touring Car Championship and the little Redkote Sierra took pole with a 1:35.490, over a second faster than the Texaco Sierras that won (until they were excluded) the 1987 James Hardie 1000. A water pump failed however and the Australians came home empty handed, although, they did show the Brits that they didn’t have the fastest Sierra’s in the world – we did. This car forms part of the Dick Johnson Collection, and the certificate will be signed by both Dick Johnson and John Bowe. This Sierra will also be the first off our Brand New Tooling, not Autoart, not Minichamps, but our own, brand new tool.

Entitled “Anarchy” by our in house Graphic Designer, this is a Matte Black XD Falcon with our own fantastic Livery. Only 500 pieces of “Anarchy” will be produced and will be snapped up quickly.
