Welcome to Hot Sixty 4th in which I show off my DLM 1/64 and smaller and sometimes larger collections. Continuing with the blue car showcase on my 226th post is a nice #24 Subaru WRX STI NBR Challenge by Tomica Premium.
Based on a real Subaru WRX STI, the car participated in several races including the 46th Nurburgring 24-hour race in the SP3T class. This was Subaru’s 11th Nurburgring 24-hour race challenge since 2008, their 5th class title and their third win in four years. The grueling race was held at the at the Nurburgring in the Eifel region of Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.
I got this from my brother in law last June 2018 and was most likely release on that same year under the Tomica Premium series. What attracted me to this casting is the nicely done racing livery. Head and tail lights are painted. Wheels look good but tires are made of plastic. Always appreciate having legible white lettering on the tires.
