Motorsport Scale Models

A virtual museum for sport and racing scale model cars and motorbikes

Le Mans (1970-1989)

[1923-1949] >> [1950-1969] >> [1990-2009] >>[2010-today] >> [Le Mans Winners]

1/18 Scale model cars

1/18 scale model cars from the Le Mans 24 Hours race, corresponding to the 70’s and 80’s.

The winning team for each edition is shown in the table. In many cases, especially during the early years, there are still no 1/18 scale reproductions of the winners (known to the author, at least), these are indicated in orange text. The models included in the Collection (winning cars or otherwise) are shown in black text, while 1/18 existing scale models not in the Collection are marked in grey text (only for winning cars).

For the models included in the Collection, the links to their individual pages will be gradually updated over time.
