Grand Prix Racer in Green (Nr. 1-D1 – 1973-76) and Hot Rodder in yellow (Nr. 28-B1 – 1973-76)
UPDATE: The same model in much better shape including stickers:
END OF UPDATE
Formula 1 Racer in Orange (Nr. 22-C1 – 1973-78) and Formula 5000 in Black (Nr. 27-B1 – 1973-81) From the second model I am showing two standard versions, one with stickers, another one without, plus a variant with black base and black motor at the end of the article.
Formula 5000 (Nr. 27-B? – later issue)
This last car is not described in Dr. Force’s guide and seems to be a later issue, since the motor is made in black plastic instead of golden and it is decorated with a tampographied “9”, instead of stickers. I am sure it is a later issue, but seems to be a rare model. Never saw it somewhere else.
UPDATE 2 (JUNE 2018)
This model is practically identical to the previous one, only the tampography is applied as a "6" instead of a "9". This model does not appear in the guides, and I think it is a more recent variant. Wheels are (or at least look) even newer than in the RN9 model.
