Re: FPM resin 1/24th scale kits

Take a look at FPPM's Facebook page. That Auto Union and Porsche 906 full engine detail look great. The 906 is available in short or longtail versions with full chassis detail. He says he will be doing alot more in 2015 including several vintage F1 and sportscar kits in 1/24th scale.

Re: FPM resin 1/24th scale kits

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.

Re: FPM resin 1/24th scale kits

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.

Re: FPM resin 1/24th scale kits

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!!

Re: FPM resin 1/24th scale kits

FPPM Fernando Pinto models has really been releasing the 1950's sports car and vintage GP kits at a fast pace... He has a few more planned for this summer, 2 of wich will blow your minds if you like important 1950's sports cars that have never been done in 1/24th scale before.


The Ferrari 375 versions are all out along with the 1914 Mercedes GP car in full detail!!


Check his ebay 1/24th listings........Always some new resin kits coming out from him.

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.
