For the French market , Altaya have just came out with a new part works series containing Rally service vans .
The series is said to be a collection of 60 models in total, and it l;ooks like there may be some interesting subjects amongst them .

The first issue is just 2.99 Euro , and for that uou get a rather cool looking Citroen C35 in Peugeot Talbot Sport colours which even includes a rear body from a Peugeot 205 T16 on the roof rack along with some cases and a set of wheels .

I can see the Fiat Ducato needing to head over this way.

If space wasn't an issue...

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

I suspect plenty of people would be willing to pay GBP 2.99 just for the rear bodywork section of the 205, so the van is effectively free.

I'm liking the look of the trailer with the tarpaulin shown just above the 'Modeles e Metal' logo. Is there a a list anywhere of the full series ?

Apparently it is a test run in only a few local markets in France (even Paris is not included).

As a rally collector its these Altaya/Ixo partworks and the seemingly bizarre outlook that these offshoots have regards their releases and target audiences that has just about persuaded me to throw the towel in on 1/43rd at least.

For example when the Fiesta WRC 17 was released by Ixo they modelled the Elfyn Evans car as the one he ran in Portugal that year. The most significant car of his career the one he won Wales Rally GB in that year was only released as a limited edition for a Portugese model shop which normally has a limited run of cars that competed in Rally Portugal! If that car had been released in the full Ixo range in the UK it would have sold in spades. Now its been released in France as an Altaya partwork at half the price the Minitec version was. Go figure.

Spark proved service barges sell so Ixo/Altaya are cashing in. Why dont they provide tow bars/hooks though as per the real thing? Models look a bit lame with a trailer "un-attached".

Rant over..

Looking on the bay, these vans are already £20-25+

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.

Owned the original 1/43 motorcraft transit and trailer many years ago but sold it when they started going for silly money. Much as id love to own all of these recent service barge releases i simply dont have the space.

I just bought the Renault Sport Saviem and the very cool looking Citroen Jumper with matching trailer.

I may have to track down the Fiat and Lancia team vans when they become available, as a reasonable way to get into these types of vehicles.

Put me down as a fan of the Renault Saviem.I have a short-wheelbase version from IXO, but the long wheelbase looks better.
