NEWS — 11 Jan 2019 — the ACME 1/18th scale diecast of US F5000 Championship Lola T332s of Brian Redman 1974 & 1975 Championship Winning cars plus Danny Ongais Interscope T332 raced at Laguna Seca and Long Beach 1975 are all IN STOCK!!
6 Jan 19 — Big News — 1/18 Scale Diecast are coming this week from ACME. Danny Ongais’s 1975 Interscope Lola T332 #63, Brian Redman’s 1974 Steed Lola #66 and Boraxo #1 Lola T332 — both cars are US F5000 Championship Winners. I have an arrival sale on all three for a limited time. Plus all three releases are limited Editions of 250.
3 Aug 2018. Tecnomodel from Italy has released a line of 1/18 scale Can Am Cars. Just released are 4 versions of the McLaren M20 — Hulme 1972, Hobbs 1973, Andretti 1973 and Patrick 1974. Next to come from Tecnomodels is McLaren M6As — standouts are Donohue and McLaren. Soon to be announced are 1/18 scale F5000 cars from ACME/GMP — 2 of the 3 Championship Winning car of Brian Redman — 1974 Steed Lola T332 and 1975 Boraxo T332. Also, the release will include 1975/76 Interscope T332 of Danny Ongais. Looks like they will be available in very limited numbers for a diecast — probably only about 250 cars of each version. Look for them to available just before Christmas. Formula Models products are selling out quickly. Once they are gone it looks like that will be it — no longer available.
21 May 2018 — Just in are restocks of SMTS Sunoco Camaro’s 1967, 1968 Sebring, 1968 Trans Am Donohue, Yunick Camaro #13, and AMC 1970 Javelin’s both Donohue and Revson Versions.
16 May 2018 — It is with great sadness that I have to report that my good friend Colin Fraser passed away earlier this morning. He was with his family. He is survived by his wife, two daughters, and a son. A great number of friends will miss him. I hope the Lord will be taking good care of this kind man.
14 March 2018 – Biggest news in the Handbuilt world for me is that Formula Models has stopped operations. It’s owner Colin Fraser has been forced to close Formula Models due to health reasons. Colin is an honest and wonderful person. He just happens to be one on the best single seat 1/43 model builders around. Over the years he has built many models which I maintain in my personal collection. I value them highly and love looking at them daily. Colin has been a great friend for decades. I ask you all to pray for Colin and his family. Colin is a very good man.
5 March 2014 — Welcome to the new Ghost Models LLC site. I have a new site & host. Plus the site has been upgraded to current technology and does include a shopping cart with direct online payments. You can use paypal, visa or mastercard. I believe this will be a welcome this change. I have tried to retain most of the original site organization. The categories are the same. So if you are looking for Indy Winner, IMSA, or Can Am cars — they should be able to found in familar locations. I have expanded the categories to breakout 1/12 Scale , books, & Land Speed Record cars. We have the room to expand as necessary to meet any needs in the future.
Please sign up for the newsletter. I will be using Constant Contact to direct email with news and new product arrivals. I had not done this in the past. The new site is much easier for me to update. So I hope to do a much better job in letting you know what is going on in the hobby.
I will continue to concentrate on 1/43 Handbuilt models. I have had a lot of personal issues to deal with during the past three years. Things are finally coming right. So I’m really looking forward to getting on with the hobby and getting a lot of exciting new product available to you. I want to thank everyone for their support.
