With the sad news that the museum at Donington is now closing on the 5th of November 2018, I feel I am now able to post a comprehensive number of photographs from visits in 2007 and 2011. There may never be a museum like it again and I was pleased to see it during the…

Sinsheim F1 Cars in Berlin Mall

A random encounter in a Berlin mall in 2009, these F1 cars are loaned from the Sinsheim museum.  Most are genuine, however the “FW14” is clearly a FW13 with a bit of FW12 and some extremely strange development bits like the airbox which just looks made up.

Fujimi Ferrari F92A Alesi

My F92A from Fujimi is finally complete! This is my third adult model so will not be up to spec of the brilliant work here, but I am very proud of it. It was a fantastic looking dog of a car :D, with a pretty good driver if I may say.   My main aim…
