I was lucky enough to get these 1/40 scale Champion Playcraft by Jouef cars at a really good friends price from Bensonuts. Thank-you very much mate!
Needed some refurbing, but they`ve came up like brand new.

Kev,

Alas, I searched my volumes of Doug Nye's BRM Saga, but I couldn't find a photo of a gold plated BRM.


I'm checking my Ferrari books now; I feel more confident that I'll find a Ferrari in that color scheme.. the Italians are usually more colorful.

Cheers,

Mark

Hi Joel,
The figures are from the Corgi Silverstone range. Some are very rare now.
Made in Wales, Playcraft/Corgi sold them in conjunction with the (Champion Playcraft)slot car system & Corgi Cars until 1968.
They also made a small range of Corgi Silverstone Series buildings between 1963 & 1968.( The pit buildings you see are Corgi).
After a factory fire production of some of the figures shipped out to the far east for a few years.
Cheers,
Kev.
