Last Saturday (3 May) was David Llewellin's Birthday, and it was celebrated with a one-off CODE343-built model of his 'marathon' 1986 Rothmans Circuit of Ireland Rally winning MG Metro 6R4 - a personal gift from his son Ben!

CODE343 can now proudly boast the accreditation of 'By Appointment to Ex-British Rally Champions!'. According to Ben, "...he loves it, the car is mint, fair play! It's in pride of place in the cabinet now!".

That's a beauty, David. Well done. Very neat. Got a good few stages at that rally, if my memory serves me correctly.

Thank you gents, thank you all very much indeed.  Embarassed 

David always has been one of my heroes and idols, and I can think of no other personal accolade than to build a model of such an iconic car for him - even more so when featured on such a historic rally, not only for himself, the car, the team, but also the rally itself!

The honour to have the model on pride of display in his personal collection tops off the achievement perfectly!

Thank you gentlemen! Wink

Absolutely, David.

When we met him at race retro, he came over as very well planted and a 'top bloke'.

Well, that was until he went out on the demonstration stage in the Subaru! He did have moments when all four wheels were pointing in the same direction, but most of the time he was very sideways and on the grass. A real showman!

Delighted for you, David.

I'm in the same situation myself, knowing that Rob Gibson has a model of mine, soon to be two, sitting in pride of place at his home, is a source of much pride and happiness for me. It's a great feeling, enjoy it, it's well deserved!

Cheers, Steve
