... specialising in 1:43 scale model cars



Back to Main Page




These are some links to websites that I've found useful and I hope you find them helpful as well. I haven't listed any model manufacturer's homepage as these can be easily found using any search engine. The links below are sites that I've stumbled on when trying to do some research on models in my inventory and in my own collection.



The Racing Sports Car website is all about sports car racing history and present. It has a huge database of photos but I find it immensely useful when researching the results of races held long, long ago. For example, if you need to know the full entry list for the 1957 Mille Miglia race, then this website will give you this information (it even list cars that were entered but did not turn up). It's not the easiest website to navigate but once you get use to it, it's extremely useful.



Yuui's F1 scale model site contains a huge database of photos of F1 car models. If you need to know what a particular model looks like, then this site is very helpful. Most of the major brands are listed; Minichamps, Spark, Brumm, Quartzo etc. The major scale is 1:43 (sorry, 1:18 is not available). The site also has an Indy car section but it is not very extensive.



The Old Racing Cars website is another great research resource for F1, F2, F3, F5000,  Indy, Can-Am, Tasman, Atlantic and Formula B. Useful information is given about the cars, races and the champions for each series. The information is very extensive but covers only certain time periods. There is also a drivers database but it's more of a drivers listing than anything else.



This is a simple, no-frills and easy to use site that has a ton of information. Some of the topics listed include "The A-Z of Racing Cars", "The Land Speed Records", "The History of Le Mans 24 Hours", "World Track Database" and "F1 - the Complete Results". Sure beats searching Wikipedia all day.
