It was an excellent model Brookes , even the box used to make an "oink oink" noise when you opened the lid......very cool.

Even a talking box :shock: Damn, that's Minichamps giving it everything they've got! I have a 1:18 Minichamps Rover SD1 heading this way, wonder what noises that box makes :P

Minichamps Porsche 917/30 - Penske Racing
1973 Can Am Champion - Mark Donohue



The most awesome race car ever....the Turbo Panzer !
It was conceived not only to win, but to demolish the opposition in the 1973 Canadian-American Challenge Cup as the successor to the 917/10. It used a 5.4-litre twin-turbocharged flat-12 which, at 1.3bar was rated at 1,100hp. On the dyno, running 2bar, engineers saw up top 1,500hp.
Minichamps did a very nice job on this model , infact its superb . I also had the Exoto version at the same time which had fully removable panels and was absolutely exquiste . I cant say ive ever been the biggest fan of Can Am racing, but I adore this car .

UT Models Porsche 993 Carrera S


The 993 Carrera C2S is a rare and much favoured variant, due to its low production numbers and its massive kerb appeal which was enhanced by its wide hips. The car was produced for a one year period only and can be easily identified by its split rear engine grill, and unique steel grey trim.
The Carrera S offers a higher equipment level than its little brother, the suspension has been lowered (option M033) by 10mm at the front and 20mm to the rear, the nose section, side panels and wide rear body are of the 4S, which gives the car a Turbo look.

One of the nicest UT 993`s which shows just how good these were . Despite being over 15 years old now, it still holds its own in the display cabinet .With the introduction of resin models these old UT`s have plummeted in price and because they still look so nice im undecided as to whether I should let them go or not.

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.
