The Negrão Racing Dynasty

By Sergio Luis dos Santos

All text and photographs copyright of the Author.

Throughout all  sports it’s fairly common to find family dynasties where generations from the same family play the same sport. In motorsports it’s the same.  We may remember some well known racing dynasties, from short-lived ones like Hill, Villeneuve and Senna, to the longest ones like the Andretti, Piquet or Fittipaldi, just to name a few.

Here are some models from the Brazilian family Negrão: Alexandre Furnari Negrão (Xandi Negrão), Alexandre Sarnes Negrão (Xandinho Negrão or Alexandre Negrão Jr.) , Antônio Augusto Furnari Negrão (Guto Negrão) and André Negrão.

All models are in 1:43 scale.  [Click photo for larger image.]

  1. Audi TT-R – Mil Milhas de Interlagos 2004 – Xandi Negrão, Xandinho Negrão and Guto Negrão. Schuco.

Supercars UK Partwork

Edited by Maz Woolley with contributions from Mike Allen and Jeffrey Stevenson.

Text by, and copyright of, the respective Authors. Photographs as credited. If no credit stated photograph by, and copyright of, the Editor. 

Just as my editorials had questioning the future of part works here in the UK both Mike Allen and Jeffrey Stevenson drew my attention to a new partwork being sold in the UK. This is currently being advertised on UK TV where Jeffrey saw the advert and was tempted to buy one, Supercars: The world’s greatest cars in miniature. The first part is in the shops now and I’ll let Mike take over the story:  “The format is similar to previous partworks – a huge piece of cardboard with a model car, a magazine about the car and information on future models. As usual the first one is sold at a very low price: 2.99 GB Pounds. After that the next one is 5.99 and then the remainder 10.99.

Mike says of the model: “The first model, a 1:43 scale Ferrari LaFerrari 2013 (most models have the year date in the description, a good idea), is in a hard plastic display box. Good features for me are the deep rich red colour, engine details, highlighted disc pads and the Ferrari logo on the centre of the steering wheel. The magazine is informative, but I wish it had some photos of real cars on roads as well as artwork and studio shots. For an additional £1.50 an issue subscribers get three 1:24 scale models, which look to have opening parts. The full collection is 60 models.”

Jeffrey says of the model: “It’s a nicely finished model with no opening features, but with glazed front lights, very good wheels, windscreen wipers and mirrors. The interior is clearly visible and looks good and there is a representation of the engine visible behind the passenger cabin. The base plate has a blank space where a maker’s name might appear on a different issue of the model.”

Photo Credit: Jeffrey Stevenson

Of the magazine Jeffrey says: “Each car comes with a magazine. This isn’t bad – a bit of a ‘showroom glossy’ type of magazine, but not bad.

With reviews like that, and the bargain price, I went to a newsagent and bought myself the La Ferrari to see what it was like and dissembled it to see if I could find any clue as to its maker. But no part had any markings other than a code number . If asked to guess I would say that this was made by either Universal Hobbies or PCT Industries (Ixo‘s parent)and is finished to a good standard for a budget model.

To find out more I initially went to the UK Panini site and there is absolutely no mention of the collection there.  However ‘Googling‘ quickly lead me to www.modelsupercarcollection.com which is the dedicated site for the collection. Browsing the site soon made it clear that the collection is distributed in the UK by Panini but is actually originated by Centauria whose logo appears on the cover of the magazine that comes with the model. Further investigation suggest that they, like DeAgostini, are substantial players on the Italian partwork market. In fact they are running both a Supercars series and Ferrari series  currently in Italy.

If any reader decides to collect this series we at MAR Online would  love to see a photograph or two of each model and to have your comments on how good they are. The models advertised as coming in the future are:

  • McLaren P1 2013
  • Ferrai Panamerica 2018
  • Bugatti Chiron 2016
  • Aston Martin DB11 2016
  • Lamborghini Aventador 2103
  • Ferrari 812 Superfast 2017

For subscribers only  the following additional models will be sent:

  • Maserati Bora Gruppo 4 1973
  • Lamborghini  400 GT Flying Star II
  • Aston Martin DB7 Zagato
  • Ferrari F60 America 2015
  • Ferrari Portofino 2018

With a standard subscription there are additional free gifts: A binder for your magazines and a book called Living the Supercar Dream. If you take out a premium subscription, which adds £90 to the cost of your collection if there are 60 parts, you also get three 1:24 scale cars which are all Ferraris with some opening parts.

Trip Report – 1/43 and Others in Italy, Part II

By Karl Schnelle

Continuing my car journey across northern Italy started in Part I

After being inundated with Ferraris in Modena and Maranello, we moved out into the Italian countryside. The Maserati museum collection was sold in the 1990s when they went through a restructuring, but a private collector saved it with the help of the local government.  It is open to the public at his dairy farm.  Cows and cars – what a combination!  A side benefit is that you can also taste and buy their cheese!   Inside the museum, I could not get close enough to his 1/43 display cabinet, but he had a few Masers in there!

The original highlight of this trip, the reason I signed up, was a visit to the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo.   Ever since I had my 1976 Alfetta, I have wanted to visit.  Then in 2011, it closed down and I was bummed out.  Re-opened in 2015, it was back on my bucket list!

A funny story – I walked over to the Carabinieri in the Subaru and asked if they had any Alfas in their fleet.  One of the four said they have one in Milano, but he never got to drive it!  I guess they were parked there in the back to be on call if needed.  It was a big day at the museum because the 400 classic cars of the Mille Miglia were passing by out front!

After the overload at the museum, we headed to Lake Como for a little non-car downtime. That meant time for me to search out any model shops.  Just 5 minutes from the hotel was this jam-packed store.   Previously, the one in Bologna was already closed, the one in Maranello was at 3-hour lunch, and the two in Milano were closed on Sunday like every store, so I was happy to get to at least one store during business hours.  Many 1/43 Alfas were examined, but none that I needed…  Prices were about the same as the internet in the US, but it’s always nice to see them in-person and up-close.

,

Up next was the second private collection:  really amazing ‘Pebble Beach’ quality Alfas and Lancias in a nondescript warehouse outside Milan.

For some reason, the owner had a case of 1/43 Gulp handbuilt Alfas there.  Perhaps, they are there because they made his rare Alfa Romeo 6C1750 Carrozzeria Aprile!

By happy coincidence, the private Vespa museum was nearby and the owner was around to open it up for us.  It pays to have a tour guide who speaks Italian. Of course, he had the requisite partworks in his display cabinets.  There must have been 100s of full scale mopeds on display above his Vespa parts business.

Next day, it was off to Turin to stay at the ex-Fiat factory at Lingotto.  Their 1923 test track is still on the roof!  Did you happen to see the original Italian Job?

A short walk from factory is perhaps the best automobile museum in Europe, the Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile.  Redesigned in 2011, it is a fun place for any car guy or girl to visit.  But why do they have a boxed Dinky Toy BMW Isetta;  Dinky never made one!  I think they previously had ‘Dinky’ 24L Vespa 400 in there that must be out on a temporary exhibit somewhere!

The other 1/43 mystery was why they had a large Brooklin Model display.  After further investigation, the new silent partner (or owner) at Brooklin is Nicola Bulgari, and two of his newly-restored American cars are on display in this Turin museum now!

Another fun display is the new Fiat 500 covered with >500 500s!  I think they are 1/55 Majorettes…

And finally because our esteemed Editor has been writing a lot about Atlas and DeAgostini lately, we zipped by this place on the A4 Autostrada on the way back to Malpensa airport to end our long, glorious trip.

I hope that these two posts has not been too much for you.  However, if you would like more details or photos from anywhere we visited, please let me know via the contact info below. Arrivederci!

Trip Report – 1/43 and Others in Italy, Part I

By Karl Schnelle

I have been home from Italy a couple weeks now and just got my 500 car photos organized.   It was a trip of a lifetime, I have said several times!  The Alfa Romeo Owners Club (USA) had organized a tour of Italy, and I happened to see their ad.  I immediately signed up and then asked my wife.  Not as bad a mistake as you may think, as she happily added on four extra days (with absolutely no car activities)!

The plan was to see the Alfa Romeo Museum (naturally), the Ferrari museum, the private Maserati museum, Lamborghini factory, Ducati factory, and 2 private collections.   In hindsight now, I don’t know which was more amazing.  Perhaps that we timed it just right to be at the start of the Mille Miglia was the highlight!  [Click to enlarge the photos,]

I did hunt out some model car stores and looked for any 1/43 Alfas to add to my collection, but that was really low priority compared to all the other sights to see!  What follows then is a photo travelogue of some of my model car sightings over the ten-day trip.

We started our tour with two factory tours near Bologna (‘no photos please’); both Ducati and Lamborghini had museums attached to their factories.  The Ducati gift shop had lots of nice motorcycle models for sale, but I am more of a car guy. Lambo strangely had no gift shop or models for sale.

Next stop was a private collection at a farm out in the countryside, truly amazing pre and post-war cars. mostly Italian.

We had time for an extra stop in Modena at the Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari.  They had a nice 1/43 display of Enzo’s first workshop – when he worked for/on Alfa Romeos!  Is that a Brumm Bugatti out front???

In the display cases were two vintage, large scale models: a Ferrari liquor container and a Maserati wind tunnel model.

The next day we were off to Brescia for the start of the Mille Miglia.  While we were there, we also saw the Mille museum.  They had a few 1/43s for sale, but had 2 full cases of 1/43 Mille cars inside the museum: handbuilts on wooden bases as well as the Italian Hachette Mille partworks series!

Later we also went to the Ferrari museum in Maranello near the current factory.  A recreation of Enzo’s office had a few 1/43s on his cadenza.

My favorite full scale might have been this gorgeous 250 Europa.

In the F1 room, they had a whole wall of 1/43 Ferrraris.  Here is the middle section.

Their gift shop was stocked with high end, handbuilt 1/43s. At that price, they could be BBR, MR, or Looksmart, or even better!

Of course, just go across the street to an independent store if you want more reasonable prices for the same cars!

I’ll take a break now and post Part II later.  Hopefully this has not been too many photos all at once.   If you would like more details or photos from anywhere we visited, please let me know via the contact info below.  Ciao…
