FPM models have been adding alot of 1/24th scale resin model kits to their long list. The quality is very good with casting that is truly amazing. They do both sportscars and F1 kits. They are doing older cars that have never been done in larger scales before, and some that have only been done in very poor quality kits. Fernando Pinto has an eye for the cars shape and most have nice motors. The casting will amaze you!!

Here are the cars he has planned for late 2013 and early 2014...He is very busy. Fernando also does Bizarre 1/43rd models.

New 1/24th scale kits for late 2013 and early 2014. Check ebay for listings as he sells direct.

1951 Ferrari F1 375 Monza winner

1962 Ferrari 330 Lemans winner
1961 Ferrari 246 Dino Lemans 1961

The FPM 1/24th Alfa 2300 1931 Lemans winner kit is out and looks very nice. It has a full engine(for the Alfa fans). I also just received the Vanwall VW10 1958 F1 kit and Ferrari 246 Lemans and they both have full engine detail. Very tight fit lines and worth every penny!!

Both the 1931 and 1932 Alfa Romeo 2300 Lemans winners are out. This company makes the best hand laced wire wheels I have found in a kit.

Great old school resin castings with metal molded into the resin when required.

Fernando Pinto is a great guy and a good friend of mine. I saw him, long time ago - in 1992, I guess - beginning this series of F1 classic Ferraris, at an exposition, here in Portugal. We became friends since then. I don't see him for some years, now (since he went to China, to be a modeller for IXO and other labels).

Nice to know he's still alive and kicking. And keeping a great job.

I have met Fernando Pinto at his home in Gaia, Portugal (in front of Porto, the other side of the Douro river) in September 2014.

He is a real gentleman. Beside being a very good modeler, he is also willing to respond (when he can) to some needs encountered by his customers during the building of his models.

You can follow Fernando's work (and see some buildings by his customers) searching on the Web `Fernando Pinto Models`Facebook page.

1960 Cooper F1 Champion and Indy version are due out any time now in 1/24th scale. He has alot planned for 2015. I just finished up his F1 Ferrari 625 Monte Carlo winner and 1932 Alfa 2.3 Lemans winner. Fantastic details, but they did have alot of air bubbles partly because his molds are so complicated. The Alfa's wire wheels are amazing, best I have seen in a 1930's race car kit ever!!

FPPM has announced they will do the 1979 Lemans Aston Martin V8 in 1/24th scale.

I have seen the body prototype of this car in his Facebook page, it looks magnificent and beautiful. I contacted Mr. Pinto and he very kindly told me it will be available in about a month or two if everything goes according to plan, I will be ordering one of these...or maybe even two, I like that racecar very much and Mr. Pinto have made a superb scale representation of it.

And a big Thanks to F1 Tommy, thanks to you and your photo previewsI found out about this great gentleman scale offerings.
