Are you asking about other Toivonen 'Unipart' liveries Chris, or other decals that would fit the plain white LHD base model once you've stripped it?

As you may already know Chris... Wink Harri used two different cars during the 1986 season - the Rally Engineering Development run C997LCA on the British Open Rally C'ship, and the Austin Rover Motorsport run C96KOG on the 1000 Lakes Rally and Lombard RAC Rally. Unfortunately however, the liveries were very very different, so the only one you could really build from your spare RAC car is his 1000 Lakes entry... ...unless you already have one of those built using Carlo's decals that is?

Toivonen CoI '86 decals, I know nothing of this sellers decals, but it seems you can pay £12, £12.72, £13.25 or £15.88 for the same set of decals from the same seller! Also has Llewellyns listed for the same event

Avoid this seller-his stuff is from scanned decal sheets and then printed on a laser printer-quality is very poor

I've heard a few bad things about his decals too. I will get them through Carlo when I get round to it.

Not only are his decals rubbish, he's a total a-hole too. I told him his decals were poor quality, incorrect and had missing logos. Got a cock and bull story about correcting them. He didn't. Left negative feedback and he sent me a series of ranting emails stating that because of my poor feedback, he'd have to shut his ebay shop, his kids would have no food to eat and I would be to blame.

He's a complete a-hole.

Think I might just buy a set of decals and leave him bad feedback just for the crack Laughing Twisted Evil

I was going to order a set of 1/18 decals of anything just so his kids could have something to eat next week! Cool

And this is just another of the great things about this place,I was genuinely considering buying decals from him!
