RS200 looks great.......looking forward to getting mine.

Capri is very appealing too.....great period colour too.
Both excellent models mate however the RS200 is a lot better. You'll love it

The Porsche 911R was first shown at the 2016 Geneva motor show and is very similar to the GT3 RS but without the roll cage and rear wing. Consequently it is 50kg lighter and due to it's lower drag has a higher top speed at just north of 200mph. Also it only comes with a 6 speed manual, re-introduced to the 911 after feedback about lack of a manual option. Production was limited to 991 examples prior to the introduction of the revised 991.2

Those yellow highlights certainly offset the otherwise dull grey. I agree with Tom that it would work well in 1:43.

Will you stop posting such fantastic 1:18 DE models please!

Like this a lot......grey looks great....would prefer with black wheels though. Not sure I'd have the parking restriction stripes over the top, but a lovely looking model nonetheless.

Superb pictures Andy - glad we got our orders in early. Did you ever get the Otto GT 047 Porsche 911 (997) Sport Classic 2014. Would make a fantastic picture. :D

I'm not sure if I would prefer it with or without the yellow. I looked at the variations and this was the second best but my first choice had sold out

The fifth round of the 1976 ETCC was held at the Nurburgring and was run over 4 hours. It consisted of 4 divisions based on engine size, with division 4 being for cars of 3 litres and above which for this race was three BMW 3.0 CSls, one from Juma Racing and two from Luigi racing.
The Luigi Racing pair were driven by Hans-Joachim Stuck, Jean Xhenceval & Pierre Dieudonné who qualified on pole and Hughes de Fierlant, Gunnar Nilsson & Claude de Wael who qualified second 18 seconds back. The race would see the two Luigi cars dominate until the Stuck car had to stop with no oil pressure handing the lead to their team mates who would go on to win by a margin of 2 laps

It's sealed but the price is good, it captures the original just so and it looks excellent on the shelf.

It's an excellent model Bruno thanks. Well modelled in all aspects but the wheels are worthy of a particular mention
There is indeed a 43rd version of this as well

I don't recognise this at all. You would have more credibility if you had said without fretting about the rear suspension collapsing, the air conditioning deciding 33 Celsius is the right temperature on a sunny day or the headlamps auto adjusting themselves to light up either the moon or the road 3 cm in front of the car. As you didn't i can't take your comments seriously ;)
