1:43-scale Connaught A Spark, £53.99 We can’t remember the last time a model Connaught was available, so Moss’ car from the 1952 Italian Grand Prix is most welcome. Detailing is sparse but wellchosen, but a shame Moss himself isn’t as well-rendered as his car.
1:18-scale Porsche 944S Turbo LS Collectibles, £151.99 Brings back memories of Eighties Polistil and Majorette. But LS’S big-money resin falls short, with too low a stance on its wheels, a glazed-over B-pillar and heavy heater decals blocking a decent view of the interior through the rear windscreen.
1:18-scale Jaguar XJ6 SIII Cult, £160.99 Cult’s BL fixation ditches beige nostalgia for a real gem – Jaguar’s XJ6. From its pepperpot alloys and lustrous maroon paint to the spindly chromed gear lever and subtle wood-effect dashboard, it’s an evocative model. Just a shame it lacks carpets at this price.
1:43-scale Excalibur Phaeton Neo, £108.99 Neo usually makes exquisite resin models of pre-war cars, so this 1977 pastiche is a charming in-joke. Attention to such details as a padded steering wheel and overdone chrome work as both comedy and art.
