        I have an old 1/32 brass chassis and I am trying to find who the builder was. 
It has a matchstick running man and the number 044 engraved. It is powered by a Mura motor.

  Hi

Hello from Italy.
I'm Maurizio Ferrari, one of the two founders of Galileo Engineering, the company behind Slot.it and Policar.
Well made site.

I found this really old static kit from 1965 made by Aurora. Not too many Corvair slot cars. That's a good enough reason for me to start the process.

Commissioned by their UK distributor, Fly's new UK limited edition (150 units each) podium trio are thoroughly Goodwood-themed. Racing just up the road from Gaugemaster's West Sussex HQ, these Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinettas finished first, second and third in a thrilling 100-lap RAC Tourist Trophy race - the eleventh round of the 1962 World Sportscar Championship.

Here's the Pathé News report of the day (from 0:42 - after a radio controlled aeroplane feature)...



And here are the three Fly cars...

   
Fly E2011 Ferrari 250 GTO #15 Innes Ireland - Winner Goodwood RAC Tourist Trophy 1962. Limited Edition of 150 units. RRP £59.95

   
Fly E2012 Ferrari 250 GTO #10 Graham Hill - Runner-up Goodwood RAC Tourist Trophy 1962. Limited Edition of 150 units. RRP £59.95

   
Fly E2013 Ferrari 250 GTO #5 Mike Parkes - Third place Goodwood RAC Tourist Trophy 1962. Limited Edition of 150 units. RRP £59.95

It has been great to see more Ferrari GTOs being produced by Fly this year - including rally and Le Mans versions. All seem nicely spruced up with photo-etched parts and added cockpit detail to breathe new life into one of the company's most popular models. The three Goodwood cars have been turned out in right-hand-drive versions, as they were back in 1962...

   

The Fly 1962 Goodwood TT GTOs are with retailers now. I don't expect them to hang around too long!

News has broken over the past few days of a new 1:24 scale car in the popular TTS / BRM Group-2 Mini-Saloon range. It has been confirmed that a front-wheel drive model of the Autobianchi A112 Abarth will be released by TTS next year, with an official announcement around Christmas time. Here's the video that spilled the beans...



The car will appear in the Total-sponsored Scuderia Vesuvio colours (above) and the Alitalia scheme from the Rally Storico Campagnolo of 2010...

   

There will also be a white body +chassis kit and a white body kit available with the first two liveried cars.

The A112 Abarth was an important car in European rallying in the 1970s, including the single-make Campionato A112 Abarth - which ran from 1977 to 1984 and featured the likes of Attilio Bettega, Fabrizio Tabaton and Gianfranco Cunico. The A112 Abarth was also extremely popular with continental boy racers. The cars are now a common sight on historic rallying events...

       

Certainly a lovely addition to the range, I am intrigued to see more in December - especially under the body at that rumoured front-wheel drive. I'm sure the UK distributor - Pendle Slot Racing - will send us pictures when they have them.

We received this news today from The Hobby Company Limited - the UK distributor for Carrera...


Quote:The Hobby Company wish to advise that from 31/12/20 we will cease to distribute the Carrera slot & Carrera RC ranges in the UK.

Carrera’s owner Stadlbauer was purchased in May 2019 by Quantum. Quantum is also the Parent Company for Revell Gmbh, who own Revell in the UK.

In January 2020 the new Management made the decision to combine various elements of the Stadlbauer & Revell businesses. One such synergy is to be the UK market, where they consider it is more appropriate to have Revell, selling and investing in marketing of all Group brands, rather than continuing to work with The Hobby Company as a Distributor for just the Carrera brand.

Carrera items will continue to be available from The Hobby Company until the end of December – with any out of stock items still obtainable via special order by us on a 10-14 day lead time from Carrera in Austria.

After 1st January Carrera will be available from Revell UK.

Although this news is not a surprise, it's sad to say goodbye to the Hobby Company, who have been fine custodians for Carrera in the UK and supporters of SlotRacer Online. We wish everyone at the Hobby Company all the best with their many other model kit and toy brands.
