Another model builder enters the Irish market

Post  JOB on Sun Mar 20, 2016 11:55 pm

Looks like someone else thinks that there is money to be made making Irish models. The first offering is the Jimmy McRae COI 1987 winning Sierra. He has a request up on facebook looking for photos of Circuit of Ireland winning cars from 1956 !!!

Totally agree. Spark seem to focus on current years Monte Carlo, and IXO seem to have completely switched off amd are just focussing on their magazine affiliate ranges (which are typically just multiple liveries on the same base).

Andy Howdle (Rally models) told me he is working on these; one of them has an Irish theme as well !.

Agreed, I'll be buying those Lovell cars. They also need to get the Gwyndaf Evans car done plus a Phil Collins, James Cullen(same colour) plus Chris Mellors, Austin Mchale, David Llewellin etc etc

Guys I hope no one thinks I'm having a go at the artisan builders like Andy, far from it, they are just filling a glaring chasm in the market whilst Trofeu disappear down the plug hole of Rally Portugal. Its such a shame because they have the moulds to cover most famous British and Irish cars yet they havent even done an Andrews Brookes MK2!
