Lovely model, that. OK, not perfect, the number plate may be, erm, less than 100% accurate, but I can't wait to get mine. Been on back order for aprox 18 months, maybe longer!

Yep, as soon as I've got my one, the front part of the roll cage will be coming out, the number plate sorted and the front splitter changed to the right shade with a suitable decal, and away we go! Mmmm! Very Happy

Cheers, Steve

The Harri Toivonen 'Unipart' 1986 Lombard RAC Rally entry has also been in the planning stage for quite some time like the Teesdale car shown today, but it's anybody's guess when / if that will appear.

If it does ever appear Juha, then I can see me listing my recently acquired PJ Code3 version on eBay - and quicker than you can think what Harri's actual result was on the 1986 RAC! Wink

He was the last to join the cambelt club along with Sutherland, Fielding, Duez, Teesdale, Gillanders and Wood. Rutherford had already thrown his car into the scenery.

I'm not connected 24/7 on this forum. No way that Vitesse would have ended up in your collection if that was the case. Laughing

lol!

I'm not on 24/7 either - I just happened to be the first person to see the list who was after the Vitesse! If you'd have seen it first, then it would be in your own collection now. Wink

Credit to you for your 86 RAC knowledge though! Wink

21 unique ones required be it decals or models, not duplicating with different makes of same car on same event.

Ie PJ & Ixo Harri Tovonen RAC car only counts as 1 wanted although eventually both will have issued it

I haven't counted how many I'm missing yet, but it will be more than your 21 I'm sure!

I'm also pretty sure that we know more about this model now as well...

• GB64 - Various 1988 rallies - to be confirmed! - John McKerrell - ‘Page Signals' : Limited to 50 only!

...I'll try and sort out the individual event details later mate. Wink

Owned: 52 (not doubling the Mc Kerrel, Herd, ... models).
Missing: 15 (not including planned Ixo releases)

Some are easy to get (Nelson model), or to make yourself (Coleman Manx, various Llewellin cars, McRae COI, Toivonen COI, Wilson Portugal), or wait for a reprint (Knebworth Launch), or wait till it shows up on Ebay (84 York National), or just about feckin impossible to get hold of (LHD white, KMD Biggerstaff models, Gillanders, ...).

I can't be bothered to go through and count models got, decals got, models not duplicated, decals not applied, models not got, etc... ...it's making my head hurt at the mere thought of it! scratch

I suppose a Clarion car is a way to obtain this:

... but it won't be 1/100!

True, as they were basically a Clarion car without any livery anyway. Wink

Shame that IXO won't consider anything below 1000 nowadays for a specific low volume run, as it used to be 100 I gather and that's how Andy had these LHD white cars made.

LHD Carion cars are good for Carlo's Toivonen & Arpiainen decals, Andy's Schwartz decals, plus any other Clarion adaptations for any other individual events.

My problem is I need more LHD wipers. I don't have enough Clarion models to go round. Neutral

Anyone know where I can buy some?
