A NEW 6R4 - and one for the Irish collectors!

Post  Cowley on Sun May 20, 2012 12:40 pm

A personal Code 3 of the Billy Coleman / Ronan Morgan 1986 Shell Donegal International Rally 'Rothmans Rally' liveried event winner, made by applying Starter decals to an IXO McRae 1986 RAC Rally base model - a pauper's KMD Coleman car if you like!...

Class model David. You're getting pretty handy at this me thinks! Very well done
Those wheels (fins) really make a huge difference.

Many thanks lads - very much appreciated. Wink

I must admit that I have had the decals for this for ages, and have been meaning to do it for a similar length of time - loosing the decals for a while didn't help matters though! I agree Sean - it looks sweet with the correct white wheelfans, or Dunlop branded slicks! Shocked I'm also pleased with the way the STP roof decals turned out as well. Wink

It's For Sale anyway - well, as soon as I find the equivalent KMD version to replace it with! Wink

I'd ask first dibs but I have exactly the same model here, although 4 decals are missing. Smile

"Done" isn't the right word.

The missing decals are:
- Names
- Door plate
- Reg numbers
- Windscreen decal

That's almost half the car, but I do have a spare STP decal and the Rothmans Rally decals are already fitted.

It's DRA, David Richards Autosport.

They later changed the company's name and started messing around with Subarus. You might know them as Prodrive. lol!

The KMD model is incorrect as there's the Ecurie Cod Fillet logo on the windows (it shouldn't be on the car), there's no DRA logo and it's fitted with gravel wheels.

DC has one an excellent job. I can only fault him on one thing, the window clamps, but he used the Ixo base so they already were on the model.

I do like the way the extra lights are fitted on the front.

Have to say Dave, Juha and the 6R4 posse that I'm kind of in awe of your detailed knowledge of how these cars were from event to event, it really is incredible almost 30 years later, respect bounce

And I wasn't around back then!

I actually looked at making the same model, hence the reason I know the Coleman Donegal entry quite well. I'd have a harder time spotting errors if it were Cyril Bolton's car which was seeded at 3 (although the only things that changed were the front bib, and advertising from Sealink, Shell Oils and Michelin appearing throughout the year).

I think Juha has answered that one now Paul. Wink The DRA logos were included on the original Starter decal sheet, so I just used them off there. Very Happy

Thank you Paul & Juha. I certainly do try and be as accurate as I can on my models, but sometimes it isn't always possible. Wink Also, sometimes I overlook the simple things such as windscreen clamps which shouldn't be on the Coleman car if I'm trying to be accurate - well spotted Juha! A quality control faux-pas me thinks! Embarassed These will be removed shortly lol.

The KMD model is also incorrect because it has the windcreen clamps fitted, AND it still says Ferodo along the sills - also wrong for the Coleman 86 Donegal car! Shocked

Thank you David - we do try! Wink From a personal point of view the 6R4 has been a real passion of mine for the last 28 years - so, very depressingly, I was actually around back then lol! Crying or Very sad

It's just a matter of doing some research beforehand - don't simply rely on the decal maker's instruction sheet or reference photos, take it upon yourself to find some additional photos of the car itself, or even pause a few video clips on YouTube and check the smaller details. It's amazing how the smaller details are often fogotten, ie windcreen clamps lol! Wink

Many thanks all for your kind words and praise chaps - they certainly make it all worthwhile! Embarassed

Yes Mark, they are your white metal cast wheelfans - white primed, and then white glossed with rattlecans, job done! Very Happy

Thank you very much Mark - just need to sort out the windscreen clamps as spotted by Juha 'eagle-eyed' Bos! Wink
