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
1955 Ferrari 625 Monaco Winner
1950 Talbot Lago T26GS Lemans winner
1931 Alfa Romeo 2300 Lemans winner
1962 Ferrari 330 Lemans winner
1961 Ferrari 246 Dino Lemans 1961
1958 Vanwall VW10 Monza winner
1952 Mercedes 300 SL Lemans winner

Also has done the following 1/24th resin kits already:

His ebay listing is under crazycar19. These kits are worth a look. The shapes are very accurate and the engineering well done. If you like old cars this company is a goldmine!!

I received my 1/24th FPM Vanwall VW10 and Ferrari 246SP kits and have to say they are wonderful. The moldings are very good and the kit engineering is amazing. They both have engine detail and are resin works of art.

The Alfa Romeo 1931 2300 Lemans winner is also out with full engine detail. Worth every penny.

FPPM has now released the Alfa Romeo 2.3 Lemans Sommers/Chinetti 1932 aero long nose winner in 1/24th. Next up the 1933 Sommers/Nuvolari 2.3 Alfa winner in 1/24th. This is the first time the Alfa Romeo Lemans winners have been done in large scale.

This company is moving the bar for resin kit quality and are adding great choices to their line of model kits. If you like pre 1970 race cars FPPM is a must.

The latest FPPM 1/24th Alfa Romeo 2300 Lemans 1932 Sommers/Chinetti winner is out. I love this car with it's special aero nose. I begged Mr. Pinto to do this car since he had already done the long wheel base 1931 Alfa 2300 Lemans winner.

Look at those wonderful hand laced wire wheels!!

FPPM has been cranking the 1/24th resin kits out. They did the 1914 Mercedes GP car along with the Ferrari 340 MM, 340/375 Nurburgring/Pan Am 1953 and 1954 cars, several record cars...ect....Very prolific company. And the Mercedes hand laced wire wheels look superb.

FPPM just did the Ferrari D50 French GP aero car and Blue Bird record car in 1/24th scale and will do Porsche 550 Spyder RACE VERSION 1953-1955 soon. Many red cars also on the way all in 1/24th scale.

This is the first accurate model of the Ferrari D50 Aero as all the 1/43rd versions were very inaccurate.

I built the 1/24th FPPM Ferrari Lancia D50 French GP 1956 aero test car for Ferrari Expo 2017. Overall nice but I did change the wheels this time, and had to mess with the scoops and the rear end to make correct. A nice old school kit. Fernando has a great eye for shapes.
That makes things a lot easier.
