Grand Prix History in Scale Models

Welcome to formula143

This website is about my personal 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.

Models of many manufacturers, brands and magazine collections are presented in my collection. Some of my materials on the history of motor racing and scale models are also published here.

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.

Please note that the models presented on this website are not for sale.
