Grand Prix History in Scale Models


Important source of Grand Prix and Formula 1 diecast model cars are numerous magazine collections distributed by publishing houses via kiosks and / or by subscription. This form of commercial activity  has its rootes in partwork editions and became very popular since the 1990s. Each issue of such collection includes a magazine or booklet and a diecast scale models. Models usually are relatively simple and cheap, but the quality to price ratio makes magazine models a good addition (or sometimes, alternative) to the models produced by regular manufacturers. There are few magazine collections devoted exclusively to Formula 1 – to be exact, only 5 – RBA Collection;  Gran Prix Legends Collection; Ferrari F1 Collection in various editions; Lendas Brasileiras do Automobilismo; and Formula 1 Auto Collection in many national variants. But there were or are many other collections on particular manufacturer, period or person which include sporadic GP or F1 cars. The market of magazine collection initially was restricted to some European countries, especially Italy, Spain and France, but it is currently growing and globalizing, spanning many regions of the world including Eastern Europe, Asia, Australia and Latin America.
