First off - Happy Christmas to you all.

Like most days we had dozens of brown boxes arrive from Hornby this morning. However today has already been more interesting than a typical friday - Our delivery included a brace of New Scalextric Models!

Here they are -

c3211 - Ford GT40 1970
c3182 - Porsche 911 GT3 Cup
c3219 - Chevrolet Camaro Z28 1972
c3210 - Ford Lotus Cortina Mk1 1964
c3185 - Chevrolet Corvette C6R GT2
c3212 - Ford Escort Mk1 1969
c3166 - Vodafone McLaren Mercedes 2011 MP4-24 No4 Jenson Button
c3167 - Mercedes GP Petronas 2011
c3180 - Lamborghini Gallardo GT-R
c3165 - Vodafone McLaren Mercedes 2011 MP4-24 No3 Lewis Hamilton
c3168 - Mercedes GP Petronas 2011

I have left the most exciting till last, the C3171a Mclaren MP4 Button/Hamilton Ltd Edition Set -

I whipped one out of its box to see what all the fuss is about and first impressions are good. The box although virtually the same as other Ltd Ed sets looks great with a nice graphic on the front. Upon opening you are faced with the typical plastic dust cover you'll find in every set. The cars are great looking moulds, personally I think the Hamilton car in "Volcano Red" looks brilliant and being red will undoubtedly be the faster car ; ). I grabbed a C3200 (High Detail MP4-12c released earlier this year) off the shelf to compare the models, after a quick once over the cars are as expected - Almost identical. The only aesthetic differences being the drivers helmets and the Reg plates - which have "Jenson" & "Lewis" printed in small text. I also noticed Jensons screen wiper is at a different angle, but I doubt this is planned.

I took a couple pictures (Phone pictures I am afraid, but it gives you an idea.)

If you are after any of these cars we can still get them to you in time for Christmas - However we strongly recommend you use our Parcelforce 24hr upgrade which is selectable in the checkout.

Also as we are feeling a little festive here (Christmas music on and everything) we are willing to give you 10% off everything in the Scalextric Category on our website for this weekend only (including these brand spanking new models.) - Just use discount code JRMSF10 in the basket (only valid at - Expires midnight 19th Dec 2011.)

Thanks from all at Jadlam.
