Big things with little cars

Do you remember when current Ferrari F1 team driver Kimi Raikkonen left F1 at the end of the 2009 season to begin his rallying career? No? Neither did I. I totally forgot about that.

This 1/43 model from the usual Rally Car Collection magazine by DeAgostini is a replica of his 2010 Rally Sweden car. As usual, it is a very detailed model car. Tampos of the sponsors and all else are top notch. However, if I were to be pedantic and find a niggle on this model, it’d be the fact that Swedish rally cars don’t have such low profile tyres and a low stance. The tyres replicated on this model don’t have such high sidewalls and small rims, instead get large 18-inch style rims and low profile tyres a la Monte Carlo rally style. I suppose this was done in order to easily “change” the wheels should a Monte Carlo version need it...

But overall this is a fantastic model of the C4 WRC. Especially so when it’s a rare Kimi Raikkonen version!
