Certainly, one of the reasons I limited myself was 1:18 takes up a lot of space. I do prefer that scale though - 1:43 just seems a little too toy sized.
I don't have anything by Spark - I just looked at their website and I see they have Marko/Van Lennep's 1971 917 due for release. Damn. Maybe I should have waited another year!
Yes, all are 1:43. Spark have a pretty impressive range of models and have produced almost 2,000 Le Mans models to date. Most are cars that have never been made in 1:18.

PS If and when anyone sees a 1:43 of the Nielsen Racing Oreca #24, can they let me know please?
Because many cars go through various changes of wheels and bodywork during the race, Spark’s usual standard is to model the cars as they appeared at the start of the race. Unfortunately you’ll have to model the replacement door yourself.

The #24 Nielsen Racing Oreca will probably be available around the time of next years race.

Ouch, some of the rarer models are worth 4 - 5 times more than what they sold for originally.
