Amalgam have released the first images of their new special edition of race-weathered Porsche 917Ks. This very special edition of just five models, based on the #2 car driven to victory at the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1970 by Pedro Rodríguez and Leo Kinnunen (with a single stint provided by Brian Redman), shows the car with every detail of the battle scars and covered with race dirt exactly as it finished the race.
We were delighted to have Tim Burton, aka Shmee150, visit the Bristol workshop again, as he returned to collect his bespoke model order. Tim has been a big admirer of Amalgam models, dreaming of owning a scale replica for a long time, and he chose to start his collection with a bespoke version of the most powerful car he owns, the McLaren Senna.
Amalgam are delighted to introduce a new collection off 1:8 scale models: the Formula E Collection. With many connections to FE including a friendship with the designer of the car and the manager of Jean Eric Vergne, we are increasingly involved as the series grows in strength each season, working alongside the FE teams and manufacturers: Renault, Jaguar, ABT, Mahindra, Porsche and Mercedes EQ to a name but a few.
Amalgam were delighted to welcome Jon Moore to our workshop last week, who brought in his model of the ThrustSSC, the current land speed record holder, for repair. This model was actually built during the early years of Amalgam, before the model car business was established.
