1998

TO CONTINUE OUR LOOK AT JORDAN F1 1/43 DIECAST, WE ARRIVE AT 1998.MIdWAY THROUGH THE SEASON AND WHAT PROMISED TO BE GOOD SEASON FOR THE TEAM SAW THEM WITHOUT A POINT.MIKE GASCOYNE WAS DRAFTED IN FROM TYRRELL IN AN EFFORT TO TURN THINGS AROUND.WHAT A MOVE! JORDAN SCORED A 1-2 FINISH IN BELGIUM WITH DAMON HILL TAKING THE WIN,RALPH SHUMACHER SECOND.BY THE END OF THE SEASON JORDAN HAD AMASSED 34 POINTS AND CAME 4TH IN THE CONSTRUCTORS CHAMPIONSHIP.

MINICHAMPS RELEASED THE 198 FOR HILL AND SHUMACHER IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT GUISES.THE SHUMACHER RACE CAR WAS RELEASED AS ED43 No6. M/C No984310.

                            198 WITH BUZZIN HORNETS   198 WITH BENSON HEDGES

SEVERAL 198 CARS WERE RELEASED AS HILL EDITIONS.NOTABLY THE LIMITED EDITION OF HIS 4TH PLACE FINISH IN THE GERMAN G.P. M/C No 980109,THIS WAS PART OF A SPECIAL 4 CAR SERIES OF DAMON HILL CARS,THE OTHER CARS BEING THE WILLIAMS FW16,FW18 AND ARROWS A18.ALSO RELEASED WERE THE JORDAN 198 TOWER WING  CARS,HILLS WAS No980039 AND AGAIN LIMITED TO 3.333 PIECES.ANOTHER INTERESTING MODEL WAS THE 198 TESTCAR OF HH FRENTZEN,SURELY ONE OF THE MOST LOYAL DRIVERS TO GRACE THE F1 SCENE IN THE LAST COUPLE OF  DECADES.THIS TESTCAR WAS IN THE HHF COLLECTION AS ED43 No07.LIMITED TO 2,500 AND USUALLY AVAILABLE AT A QUITE REASONABLE  PRICE ON E BAY.

AS YOU CAN SEE THE RELEASES WERE COMING THICK AND FAST FROM MINICHAMPS SO IT COULD GET QUITE EXPENSIVE TO KEEP UP WITH ALL THE MODELS ALSO COULD BE A PROBLEM TO DISPLAY ENTIRE COLLECTIONS.I THINK THERE IS A MOVE BY MOST SERIOUS COLLECTORS TO NARROWLY TARGET  THEIR COLLECTING INTO WELL DEFINED CATAGORIES,I HAVE TRIED THIS MYSELF BUT KEEP FALLING OFF THE WAGON FOR A "BARGAIN"

1999

THIS WAS FRENTZENS YEAR.HE AMASSED 54 POINTS WITH THE JORDAN 199 AND CAME THIRD IN THE DRIVERS CHAMPIONSHIP.HE ALSO SCORED TWO VICTORYS .DAMON HILL SCORED 7 POINTS IN A SEASON WHICH WAS A CASE OF "WILL I STAY OR WILL I GO"THE TEAM WERE THIRD IN THE CONSTRUCTORS CHAMPIONSHIP.

IN THE MODEL ARENA ,HOTWHEELS TOOK OVER PRODUCING THE JORDAN MODELS FROM MINICHAMPS.ATHOUGH THERE IS A MINICHAMPS MODEL 199 AS PART OF THE COMMORATIVE SETS PRODUCED BY THEM.IT IS SET 5/5 WHICH CONTAINS THE 199 AND THE EJ10.APART FROM THIS I DO NOT KNOW OF ANY 199,S PRODUCED BY THEM.THE HOTWHEELS MODELS CAME IN LIVERIED BOXES AND FEATURED A MINI DIORAMA EFFECT,MAKING FOR VERY NICE DISPLAYS,THIS ONLY OCCURED FOR THE FIRST PRODUCTION YEAR,FOLLOWING THIS THEY USED RATHER BLAND BLACK BOXES.

2000

JORDAN INTRODUCED THE EJ10 FOR 2000,STILL FEATURED THE BUZZIN HORNETS LIVERY AS LAST YEAR AND ALSO RETAINED THE MUGEN-HONDA ENGINES.HILL LEFT AND WAS REPLACED WITH JARNO TRULLI WHILE FRENTZEN KEPT HIS SEAT.IT WAS A POOR SEASON FOR THE DRIVERS AND TEAM,FINISHING 6TH IN THE CONSTRUCTORS,THEIR LOWEST POSITION FOR FIVE YEARS,HAVING SCORED JUST 17 POINTS.

HOTWHEELS AGAIN PRODUCED THE MODELS OF THE EJ10.PICTURED ARE TWO VERSIONS,THE STANDARD RELEASE FROM HOTWHEELS AND A BROTHER SPECIAL EDITION.

                                                          

AFTER TWO YEARS WITHOUT ANY PRODUCTION OF JORDAN MODELS ,MINICHAMPS WERE ABOUT TO RE-ENTER THE MARKET.MORE ON THAT IN NEXT GUIDE.
