One of those designs that nearly disguises panel gaps - lovely model of a no-nonsense legend 8-)
Yes though to be fair it is a bit easier to do that in 1/18 than 43rd. MC get quite a hard time but this is a good model

Lots of parts and i'm sure it's very labour intensive. It is however ABS (think Tamiya ) as opposed to diecast which turns a lot of people off.
However it's only when you pick it up do you realise!

The 1984 World Sportscar championship was won by Porsche, specifically the 956, which won 10 of the 11 rounds and 7 of those went to the factory Rothmans team and 5 of those wins were in the hands of Stefan Bellof and Derek Bell. However Stefan did take a 6th win that year which was enough to give him the drivers championship (Porsche factory drivers taking the top 4 slots) still in a 956, just not a factory car, at the Imola 1000km.
Entered by Brun Motorsport, the Jagermeister sponsored 956 was driven by Stefan Bellof and Hans Joachim Stuck who promptly put the car second on the grid, almost a second behind the Lancia LC2 of Wollek & Patrese, however after the Lancia was eliminated in an accident the Bellof and Stuck went on to take the win by 34 seconds

The 1:43 is nice, but the 1:18 is outstanding. Really like it mostly because of the quality on photoetched parts and the Jagermeister livery.

Strangely the orange corner is actually in a corner and the walls behind it are painted orange! Cheers Tom

More orange but this time from Minichamps in diecast. Sealed body with turning front wheels only

Hervé Poulain entered this Porsche 934 for the 1978 Le Mans 24 Hours to be driven by Edgar Dören, Gerhard Holup, Hervé Poulain & Roman Feitler and they completed 167 laps before gearbox issues forced retirement.

A Minichamps with posable front wheels? I thought that was an AA-only in 1:43. Gets it even higher on my wants list, great model!

It's 1:18, Tom. For the biggies that's a given.

As Luc advises Tom, it's an 18. A fine model but PremiumX do it 43rd and soon Spark will too. No poseable wheels
However i've just bought a 1/43 model from a brand new to me that have not been around long and on opening the box have discovered that not only is it diecast, the front wheels turn too!

Cheers Bruno. It is to be fair a better model than the PX - has slicks for a start but still those rear arches are not full as they should be

The 1986 Lombard RAC Rally was almost the last hurrah of the Group B cars in the WRC after the announcement that from 1987 Group B would no longer be eligible for competition and it would be the last European outing for Group B and for that matter most of the works teams and drivers.
Works teams from Peugeot, Lancia, Austin & Ford entered including no less than four RS200s one of which was for Stig Blomqvist & Bruno Bergland who straight out of the box won the first stage however they would not finish when on stage 26 their turbo failed.

Love the car and I can see some black paint has come off the rear bumper. Are you going to touch it up or exchange it?

Jackie Stewart & Francois Cevert made a one off appearance in the 7th round on the 1972 ETCC in for the works Ford Cologne team in a Ford Capri RS2600. The Paul Ricard race at this time was well financed with good prize money but also good starting money and a look at the line up shows a bit of a who's who of sports, touring car and the odd F1 driver of the time.
The pair put the car 3rd on the grid and for a while led however the car was not as fast as the Wiggins Teape Capri of Brian Muir & John Miles which had at the time a modified engine (the only one made at that point) which was too strong and fuel efficient for the works cars and so took the win with Stewart & Cevert right behind them.
Model is a sealed Minichamps with poseable wheels and yes the wipers were like that oddly but not as big!
