I have this one on the way. I think it looks much better than the other Lancers Vitesse has released. Neat colors in that livery.

And one more reworked Mercedes
MB280GE #144 Dakar 1983 AVIA
Image
Image
Unfortunaly the prototype had not deflectors on the back side. I noticed this too late when the most of decals were already posted on body. :(
And probably the AVIA logo on the back door should be on the roof, but i did not find more photos and at first posted this logo on the back door , then understood that this was mistake. Will try to print the same decals and change this.
So, it came free interpretation of this car. I'm disappointed but now we have what we have.
Here is original car:

Thanks Douglas.
I have to look for any Frences who has old "Paris-Match" magazines. This magazine coverages of this event in that period.
Maybe somebody knows such persons, please let me know.

Welcome to the forum. Fantastic build - looks like a factory model to me. Hard to believe it came from those first basic mouldings. As Douglas observed, lots of nice little details.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Billed at the time as the world’s most sophisticated sportscar, the 959 rewrote the rule book, particularly in a rallying context. The car was a world away from the boxy, utilitarian workhorses synonymous with the Dakar. Range Rovers, Mercedes G-Wagens and Mitsubishi Pajeros had made the event pretty much their own since its inception in 1979, but not anymore.
Unsurprisingly, two of the three factory-fettled, Rothmans-backed 959s, driven by two-time former Dakar winner René Metge and legendary racing all-rounder Jacky Ickx, shot away at the start of the 1986 enduro and were never troubled en route to a famous one-two, led by Metge. A third car, driven by Porsche support engineer Roland Kussmaul, was delayed and eventually finished in sixth place.
The Frenchman, who won the event in 1981 and 1984, led almost throughout the three-week enduro in a largely untroubled display. Only during a final-leg drama, when his car became stuck in deep mud, did Metge and co-driver Dominique Lemoyne show any signs of concern. “The mud was up to the doors,” Metge said. “We were pushing boards under the wheels and going forward a metre at a time. Finally someone came and pushed us out.”
Metge beat Ickx by over an hour and a half, with the Belgian and his co-driver Claude Brasseur in turn finishing three and a quarter hours up on the third-placed Mitsubishi Pajero of Hubert Rigal/Bernard Maingret.
Porsche’s overwhelming dominance of the eighth running of the Dakar was tinged with sadness following the death, earlier in the rally, of event founder Thierry Sabine in a helicopter crash during a desert storm.
