Replicarz Wasp nears finish line

Here are the latest spy photos of the new Replicarz 1:18 die-cast model of the Marmon Wasp that won the inaugural Indianapolis 500 in 1911.

Paint details are still being worked out, but you can see here that the car looks great with the No. 32 now in place on both sides of the car and on the grille. Replicarz will be the first to produce the Wasp in 1:18 scale, and the folks at the Vermont-based die-cast firm expect it to be something special.

The announced price is $229.99, but this promises to be the centerpiece of many Indy collectors’ display. I hope we can tell you exactly when it will arrive soon. I’m seeing Christmas presents here for a lot of collectors.
