Trying To Get Ahead With Things

Recommended Posts

These guys are all based on Immense Miniatures heads, I have only added colour.

Immense Miniatures will be doing 1/24 heads soon. At the moment Hill and the generic early driver are the only ones available in 1/24.

Would it help if I said I have an immense miniature head. :o

 

Munter and G have been and gone! No I don't have any pictures.

Some new(ish) additions to the Immense Miniatures lineup.

 

Juan Manuel Fangio

These are two of the three heads on Marc's later Fangio sprue. The third option has his goggles sitting atop his helmet. El Maestro is also available in an earlier edition with aviator cap.

 

Sir John Arthur Brabham AO OBE

Both Fangio and Black Jack are also available in 1/24 scale.

 

Probably also worth noting, the likenesses look much better to the naked eye. Unfortunately the harsh close-up of the macro lens plays up brush strokes more than the carefully sculpted features.

 

And for those who are waiting for other drivers, Wee Jackie is currently being prototyped. It is hoped he will be cast and available for purchase soon.
