Hi guys. A friend here in Dubai has recently acquired one of the 'works' 2002 BTCC Vauxhall Astra's

I don't think I've seen this is 1:43. Does anyone know if its been done as a kit ?

I would be surprised if one had not been made, but here are a few in different scales. The road car is certainly being made in 1/43rd if you want to do some modelling on an example.

1/10 scale.

1/32nd scale Scalextric.

1/43rd scale Minichamps.

No, but I'm sure somebody would be able to modify one of those for him, he is likely to know someone who has or does a bit of modelling.

The only model you could use is the Minichamps Astra roadcar modified to suit as the DTM versions are totally different

Ian ,checkout this topic and you can see what can be done with the MC Astra Coupe
