Another over­looked Brock­mo­bile – PB’s Bathurst chal­lenger from 25 years ago – heads this is­sue’s line-up of mod­els in minia­ture.

1991 Mo­bil1 Rac­ing VN Com­modore

Biante is of­fer­ing this VN Com­modore SS Group A replica in 1:18, Peter Brock and An­drew Miedecke’s 1991 Tooheys 1000 chal­lenger. They fin­ished sev­enth in a year when the turbo cars were un­beat­able. It forms part of the Peter Brock Col­lec­tion, RRP $250.00. Avail­able to pur­chase on­line at biante.com.au and in stock­ists.

2016 VF II Com­modore SS-V


VF II Com­modore SS-V Red­line is a fit­ting way for the red lion to bow out and a car that Aus­tralia can be proud of. That’s why Biante is equally proud to an­nounce that 1:18 and 1:43 replica ver­sions of the SS-V Red­line are now avail­able to pre-or­der in stock­ists, ahead of a third-quar­ter 2016 re­lease. Two colours are avail­able in each size: Red Hot with a Phan­tom Black roof and Heron White. More in­for­ma­tion (and an­nounce­ments) can be found at biante.com.au

1991 Shell Sierra RS500


Dicky John­son and John Bowe’s 1991 Tooheys 1000 ride, the fa­mous #17 Shell Sierra, is now avail­able in 1:18 to pre-or­der from Biante stock­ists. Bathurst that year saw the DJR team face the might of Nis­san’s fully de­vel­oped GT-R, which meant turn­ing the wick up to re­main com­pet­i­tive. Sadly, #17 re­tired with en­gine fail­ure. The red rocket forms part of the Biante Dick John­son Col­lec­tion. It’s a lim­ited edi­tion (1008) with a RRP of $250.00. It’s due to ar­rive third quar­ter 2016.

1993 GSR EB Fal­con


in this is­sue you can read about David ‘Skippy’ Par­sons dis­tin­guished ca­reer, which in­cludes vic­tory in the 1993 Sandown 500 with Ge­off Brab­ham. This was an ul­tra-suc­cess­ful pe­riod for Glenn Se­ton’s team and Par­sons was an ever-re­li­able co-driver or lead driver of the Peter Jack­son squad’s sec­ond Ford. Co­in­cid­ing with our story is Biante’s an­nounce­ment that a 1:18 scale replica of this car is now avail­able to pre-or­der in stock­ists. This lim­ited edi­tion has a RRP of $250.00. It is ex­pected this model will be­come avail­able in the fourth quar­ter of 2016.

1956 Holden FE Spe­cial


the mid-1950s, Holden was truly es­tab­lished as the mar­ket leader, but the orig­i­nal ‘Humpy’ Holden shape was start­ing to ap­pear dated. Their re­sponse was the in­tro­duc­tion of the FE model, a modern, Aus­tralian de­signed car, with a big­ger and roomier body. A lower roofline with a flat­ter bon­net and boot com­ple­mented the new look. Clas­sic Car­lecta­bles is now of­fer­ing a FE Spe­cial in Cas­cade White over Etna Ma­roon It’s a lim­ited edi­tion of 1000. More in­for­ma­tion on this 1:18 replica from www.clas­s­ic­car­lecta­bles.com.au

1973 Ford XA GT Hard­top (Plain Body Race­car)

Biante is pleased to an­nounce some­thing a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent – a 1:18 scale Ford Fal­con XA GT Hard­top in plain body race­car form and painted matte black. It is avail­able to pre-or­der in stock­ists now and is a lim­ited edi­tion (702) with a RRP of $250.00. It is ex­pected to be­come avail­able in the third quar­ter of 2016. Visit www.biante.com.au

1971 Holden HQ Monaro GTS Cus­tom


the two-door Monaro GTS was re­leased to the Aus­tralian mo­tor­ing pub­lic in July 1971 it proved in­cred­i­bly pop­u­lar, be­ing an all new de­sign. It was com­mended for its eye-catch­ing pil­lar­less coupe roof line and its wrap-over rear win­dow – the per­fect ba­sis for cus­tomis­ing by the street machine set. Clas­sic Car­lecta­bles is of­fer­ing this 1:18 beast in Metal­lic Orange Tang matched with White Gold paint, chrome Elim­i­na­tor rims, 350ci V8 en­gine and fully de­tailed chas­sis. It’s a lim­ited edi­tion (1000) model. More info at www.clas­s­ic­car­lecta­bles.com.au
