Minichamps 2017 Grand Prix Cars

By Maz Woolley

At the time of writing the Grand Prix teams will be collecting in Melbourne for the 2017 Australian Grand Prix next weekend. Practice has not yet even started and Minichamps are already publicising their models of the cars appearing in this race which may be a little premature as they are stated as shipping in December 2017.

Interestingly the Ferrari models codes start BBR so it may be that Minichamps are “re-badging” BBR models in this case. In any event Ferrari are about the only contenders not included in the 1:43 scale list.

It looks like another season where F1 collectors will have a good selection of quality models but they will need deep pockets if they wish to collect the whole starting grid!
