Another super cool addition! I like the BMW (I like the color, but maybe I won't anymore in 20 years from now) and the RS200 is an iconic rally car (even more iconic with this livery).

Few to add here, the first of which was a pleasant surprise as I didn't know this was coming. Sunstar Ford Escort Mk2 - Haynes of Maidstone. Bought several of these, most of which went to Haynes of Maidstone with one being displayed with the 1:1 car. Wasn't sure what the quality of this was going to be like, but was very impressed.

Very nice Simon........youve got this from Vanguards too havent you ?

Ive had a few of these Sunstar Escort`s and they are pretty well done models but can get very expensive as the Ford boys love them :D

Cheers Gary. Yes, this was also released as a Corgi Vanguard recently.

Glad I jumped on them when I did......managed to get four of them; 1 for me, 1 for my brother and 2 for Haynes.

Like the Q8 Ford a lot. I remember wanting these cars to be more successful than they were.

Fantastic model.

Not sure about the white but the E30 Touring is still one of my favourite BMWs. Love the shape and Otto worked their usual magic. Must find me a decent 1:43.

GT did an amazing job there, especially love the red interior. Had it been black, this wouldn't be half as good.
