23 Nov Model unveiling
Prior to the start of the final round of the FMM Slot Car Championship in mid-November, a new vehicle display was unveiled in Hall C. But this time not of the vintage, veteran or classic variety, but rather die-cast scale models. Formally part of the Wilhelm Lochner collection, the pristine models, the majority in 1:18 scale, were donated to FMM by Wilhelm’s daughter Annemarie de Beer and made up a superb display spread over five spacious cabinets. The collection comprises 94 cars and pick-ups, three motorcycles, a pair of trucks and a commemorative box set of Ferraris, and are now on permanent display.
