Collectable models of racing cars of the Formula 1 series. Among the most widespread car model scales we can rank 1:43 (length approx. 10-13cm) and 1:18 (length approx. 24-31cm). These models are in finished condition, i.e. no additional modification or assembly of the model is required. Most of these models are made of metal, but more and more manufacturers are launching models made of resin or ABS material. All F1 models, whether historic from the 1950s or modern, are produced under the license of the given team. In practice, this means that all details on the models were made on the basis of original documents and the final form of the model was approved by the license holder. The most popular collector's items are the cars of the world champions in the version with a driver figure in the cockpit. Among the most widespread brands are Minichamps and Spark, who regularly launch new editions, and among the premium models, companies such as CMC, GP Replicas, BBR, Looksmart or Tecnomodel dominate
