Introducing the new FERRARI Model Club Database! From Bburago to Minichamps, to BBR to Looksmart, the entire database will cover all of the brands that make the beautiful models of some of our favorite cars. And with many detailed data points on each item, it’s easy for anybody to expand their Ferrari knowledge with this new database!
Info about the database and those that maintain it –
Built twenty years ago, the original database included more than 16,000 items. However, less than 1% of the items had photos. After years of maintaining a database that was exclusively available to FERRARI Model Club members, the club decided that there had to be a better way to preserve and share this information with Ferrari fans all across the world. Enter hobbyDB.
For the past few weeks, we’ve been working very closely with Thomas Niewalda, President of the FERRARI Model Club e.V. to give a permanent home to the FERRARI Model Club Database. Once complete, the FERRARI Model Club Database will be the most extensive collections of Ferrari memorabilia out there, photos included. And with more than 5,000 models already added, including the entire Bburago and Minichamps archives, we’re well on our way to being complete.
The catalog itself will live within the hobbyDB collectibles database. As many of you know, our team’s mission is to preserve databases and provide free, accurate information to everyone. Adding the FERRARI Model Club Catalog to the database is our perfect way to continue to achieve this mission and preserve this information for Ferrari collectors all across the world. By the way, it’s super easy for any club to have their own database powered by hobbyDB (for example, see the Hard Rock Pin Collector Database. Even if your club already has a database, we will do the hard work to ensure it is preserved for future generations to come. Interested in learning more, contact our data team.
The FERRARI Model Club Database also provides collectors the ability to manage their collections, check values, add items that they love to their wish lists, and safely buy/sell items on its marketplace.
Some of the super sweet items already added include –
Classics such as this Corgi Toys Ferrari Berlinetta 250 LM
Modern larger models such as this Bburago 488 GTB in 1/18 Scale
To unusual items like this Politoys Penny P4
or this Brumm 1972 Race Transporter Set.
But also some more unusual items such as this Avon Ferrari 53 After Shave
And books such as Racing Sports Car Guide: Ferrari 512 No. 2
The Plan –
Over the next few weeks, the teams will be consistently adding new items to the FERRARI Model Club Database. They will be going brand by brand and will add Ferrari models from rarer brands such as A.D.B., Aguti, AK, Amacar, AMR and many others.
