Yes, very nice. I'm not sure I'd pick this over the Jetta, however...

Jetta is interesting subject as a 1/18 model :) Didn't they do also the next gen Jetta?

Are you going to leave it plain or sticker it up?

Plain. I have a couple or three decorated ones already.

My other favourite car
From the 7th round of the 1974 DRM series is this BMW 3.0 CSL driven by Hans-Joachim Stuck (Peterson didn't drive). The meet consisted of two races, the DRM race which was split into two divisions and then a non championship final with a 100,000 DM prize. Perhaps not unsurprisingly it attracted a large entry including works BMW and Ford teams plus all the usual entrants you would expect like Kremer, Zakspeed & Alpina.
For the 1st race Stuck qualified second in Division 1 but from the start he dropped back to save his brakes and tyres which paid dividends as by lap 40 he was back in the running as the leading cars ahead both faded and failed and would go on to take the win after 65 laps.
The final had 20 cars overall comprising the fastest from Division 1 & 2 in the first race and whilst Stuck was away first, again he dropped back this time to third which again paid dividends as the cars ahead again failed thus promoting him to the lead and ultimately the win by 34 seconds after 74 laps. He was 100,000 DM richer

The 1985 Olympus Rally saw the debut of the new E2 variant of the Sport Quattro featuring an aggressive aerodynamic package with a new smaller stroke 2.1 litre turbocharged engine which of course developed more power over the unit found in it's predecessor, the S1. Substantial weight redistribution and reduction had also occurred to try and offset the engine which remained out in front of the front axle and the large rear wing was needed to direct airflow to the radiators which were now in the boot.
Audi took just the one car to Olympus which in 1985 was a round of the SCCA Pro Rally championship for Hannu Mikkola & Arne Hertz and the car won on it's debut from local Audi driver John Buffum in his A2 Quattro

Belgium team Ecurie Francorchamps was formed in 1952 by Jaques Swaters and would race initially as privateer entries in Formula 1. In 1953 they moved into sports cars with their first race being Le Mans in support of the Jaguar works team using a standard production body C-Type for the driver pairing of Roger Laurent & Charles de Tornaco.
The pair ran a steady and consistent race however by the end of the 1st hour they were only in 25th place and from there they spent rest of the race climbing through the field reaching the top 20 in the 3rd hour, 15th in the 8th hour and finally breaking into the top 10 sixteen hours in. They would only gain one further place to finish 9th overall after completing 275 laps but it was a fine result for the new team and Jaguar were delighted with their client team's finish. It was the icing on the cake that was 1st, 2nd and 4th for the works cars.

Jaguar must be near the top of the 1:18 mountain :shock: That must be extremely gratifying to own 8-) Thanks for sharing Andy, BB

These are actually a bit of a mixed blessing due to the sheer amount of detail and how fragile it is.

Ferrari launched the F12 Berlinetta in 2012 to replace the 599 and it has a front mounted 6.3 litre V12 producing 730hp which is delivered to the road through the rear wheels via a 7 speed dual clutch gearbox to give it performance numbers of 3.1 seconds to 60 and a top speed of 211 mph.
A track focused version, the TDF, was launched in 2015 which had a power increase to 769hp and a weight reduction of 110kg meaning the numbers changed to 2.9 seconds to 60 and more than 211 mph as a top speed. 799 were made before production ceased in 2017

Love the color, especially on a Ferrari. Not at all familiar with modern Ferraris but I sure do see alot of C7 Corvette forward of the A-pillar :shock:

Stunning model.....and the perfect colour for it.

Looks even better in the hand, which is saying something with these quality photo's.

Rather keen on what's up next, though on a different thread! :D

So much more character in the TDF. Stunning motor and yes at the time of the 1:1 release there were a lot of comments about it's styling similarities with the 'Vette. In fact it made the previous 599 GTO look tame by comparison. Very cool model Andy. Yellow, perfect!

LOVE both of these previous yellow beauties, I am desperately wanting to add another CMC to my collection to keep my Porsche 901 company, fancy a 250 GTO or even a California, but we'll have to see as they are all of epic standards and quality and so goes the reason why they are astronomical in price, BUT are a perfect example of "You get what you pay for!!"

Would like to add a TDF in either scale as well some day in yellow I might add. Still the best Ferrari I've ever seen or heard in real ife and to have seen two at the same garage at the same time being delivered to the dealership was an amazing experience, will never forget it. And it's such a rare car too.
