Welcome to my F1 Diecast Model Collection

McLaren MCL60

The Collection

Seven years ago, as a dedicated Designer and Photographer and lifelong F1 follower, I made the strategic decision to capture my expanding collection visually. The optimal solution, I concluded, was to meticulously photograph each item and curate a comprehensive catalogue on a dedicated website.

Visit my professional website at www.juice-factory.co.uk for detailed insights into the array of creative services I offer.

Out of this initiative emerged the F1 Diecast Collection website. Over the years, it has garnered more than 230,000 page views, with just under 60,000 visitors, evolving into a valuable resource for fellow collectors seeking information.

Navigate through the collection using the convenient links on the right-hand side or the top menu. Explore cars based on criteria such as Driver, Teams, Years, Brands, and World Champions.

  Top 5 F1 Most Viewed Cars on this Website:

No:1 Jack Brabham – Brabham BT19

Winning his 3rd World Championship in 1966, Jack Brabham became the first and to this day, only driver to win the F1 World Championship in a car baring his own name. But for some reliability issues he would have also won in 1967, the Championship going to team mate Denis Hulme.

It’s very interesting looking at the listing of most viewed cars. The Brabham BT19 especially one with the driver figure was a very sought after model, and Spark have now released a few new versions. Here is the link to the complete  Top 30

No:2

Nino Farina – Alfa Romeo 158

1950 - Nino Farina

No:3

Damon Hill – Arrows A18

1997 - Damon Hill

No:4

Niki Lauda – Brabham BT46

Brabham BT46B

  The Best places to buy from: in my opinion!

DHMI Motorsport Models

DHMI Motorsport

I first came across DMHI at an NEC Toy Fair and then again at the Sandown Park event. Helen has an extensive stock of Minichamps and Spark Models and her display at the shows is excellent. You’ll find the website at www.dhmi.co.uk/ and the eBay Store at www.ebay.co.uk/usr/dhmi 

Well worth a look, new cars are being added all the time.

P&P Racing

P&P Racing

Phil at P&P Racing was a recommendation from Spark Germany. I was after a Ligier JS17 for my F1 Diecast Model Collection and although he didn’t have that one I have purchased a number of models from them since. P&P attend the BP Toy Fairs at the NEC, Doncaster & Staffordshire. They also have a stunning display of Spark and Minichamps, the eBay shop is here.

A very helpful chap, well worth contacting or visiting his stand if you’re after something rare for your F1 Diecast Model Collection.

Red Twenty3

Formula Model Shop

Gavin at Formula Model Shop has a great stock of F1 Models and Memorabilia. The website is formulamodelshop.co.uk/ His service is excellent, my last purchase arriving a couple of days after ordering it. Quite often has great deals and special offers.

Along with DMHI, Red Twenty 3 are major contributors at Formula 1 Diecast Model Collectors on Facebook

St Martins Models

Car Model Store

Ben Curtis runs Car Model Store a UK-based model car retailer founded in 2021 stocking a range of Bburago and Minichamps F1 models, with an ever expanding collection. Orders may be taken online or over the phone, with shipping directly from the UK. 

The website is www.carmodelstore.co.uk which is their online shop.

CK-Modelcars

CK-Modelcars

This German based online store has an amazing range of products and great prices. For example, the Jenson Button McLaren I purchased from them came in at around £30.00 –  a fantastic saving.

The website is ck-modelcars.de

Car Model

Car Model

Car Model is an Italian online store, with an excellent selection of Diecast Models. You’ll find some of the F1 Auto Collection (Italian Set) here, along with an extensive selection of Brumm, Tameo, Altaya & Edicola Ferrari’s.

Here’s their website www.carmodel.com

 

BP Fairs

BP Fairs

Barry Potter Fairs (BP Fairs) run what I think are the biggest and best Toy Fairs in the UK. The NEC Birmingham show is the Britain’s Biggest Toy Fair with around 500 stalls. You’ll normally find DHMI & P&P there and I have always found numerous bargains. Sandown Park is another favourite. These and 7 other locations, mainly Midlands, are on 3 or 4 times a year.

Check out there website for further details: www.bpfairs.com/

Bulldog Fairs

Bulldog Fairs

Bulldog Fairs are found in the South West of England. The Show at Shepton Mallet is very good, being the biggest, followed by Exeter with about 200 stalls. Once again, I have usually picked up a number of bargains. With any Toy Fairs you have to look quite hard and have a rummage. Don’t worry if the cases are damaged, you can replace them. It’s the condition of the cars that’s important.

Here the website: www.bulldogfairs.com
