I got this Tonka Dakar Porsche from Vdubyajohn a while back, and what better setting to show it in than on a rainy ORAT mission?
CM’s Rally Subaru.
CM’s Rally Subaru. 1/64.
I haven’t installed all the antennas yet. But I will! I just had to shoot something when I pulled it out.
So the latest order from Hobbylink Japan showed up today. Reasons for this order include a long time wish list item (the Lexus), a price markdown (the Lancia) and plain what-if (the Abarth, which I hope to talk about later and explain this).
The cool rally Datsun 510 by Matchbox. I love the tampos and the detailing on the roof rack items. The mud splatter on the hood is an awesome touch, it would be much cooler with some more splatter on the sides.
Hi! I’m back with a 1/43 scale model after countless 1/64s, and boy is this a good one....
On my previous post on my hawl, I finally found a few goodies of which the ‘70 Datsun 510 was one of them. On my 108th post I will be talking about one of the new casting by Matchbox that I was anticipating.
I got this in the mail on Monday and couldn’t help but mess with it right away.
Hot little Italian rally pocket rocket!
It’s taken long enough, but finally I have a Delta! Named for the spiffy triangle symbol denoting the number four in Greek, this is really best seen as Italy’s Quattro... Except for the transverse engine bit. And build quality. And noise. But it’s a legend in its own right, arguably the last true Lancia, before FIAT…
Monte Carlo, 1980. The relative calm before the Group B storm, when a small, normally aspirated 4-cylinder car could still win on the world rally stage. Fiat’s 131 was well proven by this point, and had some of the world’s best drivers at its helm, including Walter Rohrl, Bjorn Waaldegard, Markku Alen, Jean-Claude…
See, Jobjoris?!? See? I told you I’d come through with Ragnotti! Took me long enough, I only started this post two weeks ago...
Ford Europe built the Focus RS WRC to compete in the World Rally Championship (hence the WRC in the name, with RS standing for Rallye Sport) between 1999 and 2010.
Another significant old 911 today to make a second joint 911 feature with Jobjoris’ amazing 934s, this one a rally machine driven by a Scandinavian god.
Today started out dark & rainy, and I’ve been meaning to take the old TR out for a rip in the country and down to the banks of the Thames... But the old girl looks so clean in the garage, perhaps a few beauty shots first.
Actually, three. This blue Alpine just came to me from Jobjoris to join my rally version! I think these cars are gorgeous. It’s such a cool design, and they look amazing whether clean like this or all rally’d up. The green car is a fun little one, a Simca Rallye. I need to learn more about each of these cars as they…
Finally got all of the most common variations of the 5000 set minus the medic ambulance. Ever since I saw the lamley write up about the escort mydraw dropped It is gorgeous with crazy tampos and even painted rally lights! Well here are some pics of most of the set minus the tow (which I do have, just not the best…
This is another piece from my epic iHWEP from everyone’s favorite Dutchman (and that includes me), Jobjoris: A VW Race-Touareg as raced in the 2005 Rally por las Pampas by driver/co-driver duo Bruno Saby and Michel Perin.
To me it’s indisputable that Colin McRae was one of the most badass rally drivers ever. The dude was 100% fearless, always looked like he was having a good time, the youngest driver ever to win the WRC driver’s title, and arguably helped cement Subaru’s legacy as a rally giant.
