Fun Car Wednesday! Here we have a 1954 Porsche 550 Spyder from CMC. The leather straps are fantastic and give the model an intricate look. The silver car is on page 65 in case you are interested. Enjoy!

Continuation Thursday! Here we have FM’s 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster in black. This is the limited edition version. The black exterior and cream interior work very well.  Enjoy!

Totally agree with your views on the colours Lu

Sample Friday! The black and red 1955 Porsche 356 Speedsters are nice. A silver one was also proposed. That’s what we have here today. Unfortunately, the management felt that the silver color was not exciting. I like it quite a bit. If you focus on the rear, you will notice the rear reflectors are molded into the bumper. In the production model, these reflectors are incorporated into the body, which is accurate. Enjoy!

Red Saturday! Here we have a prototype1955 Porsche 356 Speedster from Franklin Mint. Like yesterday’s silver car, the rear reflectors are molded into the bumper instead of the body. The interior color is also different from the production version. Enjoy!

Very nice series, I like them, makes them a theme collection that is very rare. I have similar series like the 1930-1932 Cadillac's (all production models and 5 samples), the 1934 Packard's (all production and 3 samples), the 8C 2900B Alfa's (the 2 production and 3 or 4samples), and maybe few others  ... DM 1936 Fords.

Stallion Sunday! Today we have a factory-built Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Spyder – NART from Renaissance Models. A resin curbside model with a fantastic interior. In case you are wondering, the giant prancing horse emblem on the trunk lid is original. It is a little oversized. The yellow 250 GT SWB California is also from Renaissance. You can see it on page five. Enjoy!

Odyssey Monday! Here we have a third-generation RB2 Guangzhou Honda Odyssey. Everything opens and the front wheels are steerable. The paint quality is not the best. You can see the silver RB1 on page 20. Enjoy!

NART Tuesday! Today we have a Ferrari 365 GT4 BB from Bil Tong Models. This one is factory-built. It was also available as a kit. Other than the #75 car, #1, #86, and #111 were also available. I think the 365 GT4 is the only model Bil Tong produced. Even though this little resin gem has no opening features, it is quite detailed and intricate.  Enjoy!

The detail indeed looks amazing Lu. It's fascinating how you are able to show us these  high quality models from obscure manufacturers.
