Another superb collection from another serious collector from Lumut area. Also a close friend of BDC, he sent this pics below of what he claimed to be his "most sacred formula 1 collection". He told BDC that he just got it courtesy from a friend of him who bought it from UK. But what BDC got to say? Its a great one indeed bro.

BDC: Thanks for sharing & its a nice one bro. As recommended by you, BDC will try to owned one of this too. Surely wish for more pics from different angles of this model and also BDC pending request for the rest of your collection. But anyway, wait till you see BDC next "recruitment". Hehehehe...

Ferraris for The Sultan of Brunei

I came across this Ferrari models in ebay few days ago. At a glance, it just look like another ordinary Ferrari models to me. But then look closer, the box are label with either Ferrari F50 or Ferrari FX, then followed by "Sultan of Brunei". Both models are made to the 1/43 scale size and both are under the BBR Brand. Price tag? Each one of this Ferrari model cost at USD$290 or maybe around BND$430 plus delivery charges to Brunei.

Ferrari F50 "Sultan of Brunei"

Ferrari FX "Sultan of Brunei"

But as for me, I really wish both models were made to the 1/18 scale size and that would certainly raise my interest to add this Ferraris to my long model list.

Taxi for Senna

Brand: Minichamps
Model: 1991 Williams Renault FW14
Pricetag (date of purchase): USD$172.99 (December 2008)
Extra info:
I have been waiting for so long to owned this particular model with complete "Camel" decal on it just like the actual William Renault F1 in 1991.

The Williams Renault FW14 in which Nigel Mansell won the 1991 British Grand Prix. His great rival Ayrton Senna ran out of fuel on the penultimate lap. Mansell took the chequered flag and sportily collected Senna and gave him a lift to the pits. The crowd was absolutely elated.

Minichamps captured the atmosphere with this superb 1:18 scale model, which will be one of the all time classic collectors models in years to come.

The model is supplied in the Minichamps Senna series collectors box.

This model has detachable panels and engine detail and...
...also removable Senna figurine.

The Ferraris of Denoh

I received this this pics from one of our frequent visitors at Brunei Diecast Collectors (B.D.C). He told BDC, this are only few of his collection left that still in one piece and which he could save from the termite attack at his crib. Well, very impressive collection you have there indeed. BDC wonder, what else do you have without those bugs attack? Anyway, with a mixture of classic and new collection of Ferrari he have, lets just hope he will add up the number with other different models soon.

To Denoh, thanks for sharing with us bro. BDC love to have all the Ferraris collection., keep up the good work!!!

Next on my wishlist...

After the 1992 McLaren Honda MP4/7 of Aryton Senna that I got for my collection, now I am thinking of extending the current Aryton Senna memorabilia by setting my radar to the 1991 Nigel Mansell Williams Renault. The scene was immortalized by world wide television coverage and track photographers who captured the unique gesture as Nigel Mansell interrupted his victory lap to give friend and rival Ayrton Senna a ride back to the pits after his McLaren ran out of fuel on the final lap.

As usual, I will be looking for the perfect model and that include the "Camel" livery should be available on the model to really replicate the actual Nigel Mansell Williams Renault on the race day years ago. I should expect the pricetag could be around BND$300. But then, we will never know the actual price until we get our hand on one of this rare edition.

Hamilton on its way...

Hamilton scored the first pole position and victory of his F1 career in the 2007 Canadian Grand Prix at Montreal. Since then, he was only the second person, after Jacques Villeneuve, to win more than one race in his rookie F1 season since the first year of the Championship.

With a reasonable price, recently I ordered the 1:18 "2007 Lewis Hamilton McLaren Mercedes MP4/22 Model" to commemorate his first F1 Victory and its Limited Edition. It also comes with
Lewis Hamilton figurine on it. I will show it to you all in a few weeks time when I receive it. The model could takes maybe around 2 - 3 weeks to arrived here in Brunei. But then I know it worth waiting.
