Grand Prix History in Scale Models

Welcome to formula 143

This site is about my private collection dedicated to the history of Grand Prix motor racing, presented in 1:43 scale models.

Here you can find models of racing cars from the early city to city races in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the pre-war Grand Prix, as well as the modern era of the Formula 1 World Championship.

My collection holds models of many manufacturers, brands and magazine collections. I also publish here my materials on the history of motor racing and motor sports.

Please do not hesitate to leave any comments on specific cars, models or articles. You can also rate each model and compare your model rating with mine.
