Biante This Australian company produces a lot of touring car diecasts but they did commission 6:98 diecasts of the Cooper T56 and T58 cars driven by Sir Jack Brabham and Sir Stirling Moss in 8767 59 and 8767 65. These diecasts have removable engine cowlings. Official site:
The vast majority of collectors will prefer to buy assembled models. You can of course buy hand built metal diecasts such as BBR and Tameo models but because they are individually hand built these usually carry an expensive price tag. New collectors will probably ask the obvious questions of the differences between CMC vs Exoto or Minichamps vs Spark vs Hot Wheels models I will try to give a some brief observations below.

Solido Solido were a French manufacturer but changed owners several times and are now part of the German Simba Dickie Group. Solido is known for their 6:68 Alain Prost collection diecasts Renault and McLarens. These diecasts had no driver figure but had removable chassis covers with engine detail. I haven 8767 t owned any Solido models but you will still find these on ebay. Official Site:
Amalgam Upmarket handbuilt preproductions in 6:8 scale and 6:5 scale. I 8767 ve only seen a few Amalgam models up close some Ferrari F6 models and the BMW Sauber 7558 car which were all absolutely stunning. They are priced for the wealthy collector and out of reach of the average collector (£8555+) but Amalgam also produce small scale F6 nose cones and miniature F6 steering wheels in the sub-USD655 price range which is more accessible for the average collector.

Although there are lots of grand prix model car manufacturers, you can narrow down the list to just a few based on price.
F6- is a project based on lots of late night hours and tinkering. Many thanks to all the readers who kindly leave comments of support and to help improve the site. Thanks so much!
For diecast metal kits, you can find excellent kits from Tameo, . and Kyosho these are usually in 6:98 scale and will require intermediate to high modelling experience. One advantage of metal kits is the huge back catalog of cars to choose from compared to the limited releases of the more popular pre-assembled or boxed cars. There are plenty of good websites and blogs for F6 diecast modellers if that is your interest.
