Clearly not happy with simple display cases, Racing Dioramics have customised model cars to recreate classic scenes. The scenes are so accurate that they even feature advertising boards, realistic damage and race marshalls.
We’ve seen customised models before but these are without doubt the best ones I’ve ever seen. Enjoy.
Juan Manuel Fangio – 1954 Argentine Grand Prix
This classic scene features Juan Manuel Fangio stepping into his Maserati which would take him to his first victory at his home Grand Prix. He’d go on to win the race four years in a row.
Nigel Mansell – 1984 Dallas Grand Prix
Here is Nigel Mansell making it across the finish line at Dallas in 1984. The Brit pushed his car across the line to finish in sixth and later collapsed. The things people will do for a championship point.
Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost – 1989 Japanese Grand Prix
One of if not the most famous scene in Grand Prix racing. Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna collide, winning Prost the title. The model even features the marshall’s running towards Senna’s car as he waves his arms, asking for a push start.
Jean Alesi and Michael Schumacher – 1995 Canadian Grand Prix
As seen in F1’s Greatest Taxi Rides Jean Alesi straddles the back of Schumacher’s Benetton after winning his first and only Grand Prix at Montreal in 1995.
Michael Schumacher – 1999 Canadian Grand Prix
This model sees Michael Schumacher climbing out of his car after hitting the wall in Canada. This was the race when the ‘Champions wall’ got it’s name after Schumacher, Hill and Villeneuve all crashed into it during the race.
Sebastian Vettel – 2009 British Grand Prix
This scene features current champion Sebastian Vettel winning the British Grand Prix in 2009. It sees Vettel on top of Kate’s Dirty Sister with his fist raised… did I really just say that.
