Chris/The Maltings 1:18th rally cars

Post by The Maltings » Fri Nov 02, 2018 6:38 pm

Just arrived from Otto and another corker. Didier Auriol's 93 Monte Carlo Rally winning Toyota Celica Turbo 4WD. Roof aerial to be applied but a fantastic thing to look at!

Great model of an awesome car. The Celica provided a great show for the fans with the engine loud banging during acceleration and braking. A true monster!

Not normally a fan of part works however Ixo through the Eaglemoss/Altaya/Whatever part of their empire have a range of the bigger stuff on sale in France and Spain at the moment. I know that Ixo and Triple9 are using these moulds to produce slightly more (not that much) detailed versions however knowing how crap they are at understanding what collectors actually want I could not resist buying this one as doubt they will release it in the full range. This is the Sunbeam Lotus that the late great Finn, Henri Toivonen drove to a famous victory in the 1980 RAC Rally, at the time he was the youngest driver to win World Championship rally.

Have to say other than not having a roof aerial and one mis-placed decal which is on the roof at the back rather than the rear hatch glass I think it's very presentable.

Another from the Altaya/Ixo series is this Manta 400 of Guy Frequelin from the 1985 Criterium du Touraine rally a round of the French rally championship which he won outright. Another nice moulding and pretty ok finish only missing the Rothmans decals from the rally plates.
