Post  Cowley Tue Jun 04, 2013 9:02 am

As EXCLUSIVELY FEATURED on my Austin Rover Motorsport Facebook group page @ 7.43am this morning... cheers

This is the VERY FIRST SIGHTING of the long-awaited NEW IXO Models (RAC182) - the Harri Toivonen / Neil Wilson #20 MG Metro 6R4 from the 1986 Lombard RAC Rally, Reg No C96 KOG - AVAILABLE THIS MONTH (allegedly!). Rolling Eyes Previously all we have seen is a poor quality photo of the RARE Code 3 version produced by P&J Models - which is nice to have if you've got one! Wink - so it is refreshing to see IXO's actual model for a change...

Indeed so Billy - Hiya by the way! Wink - as this model should fairly easily morph into a very very useful plain white left hand drive base model with tarmac rims! Shocked

Oh the joys... bounce

As I've already got the RARE & HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER Wink Code 3 version by PJ in the collection, I might just replace the tarmac rims on the IXO model, with some gravel rims to make an alternative addition. Wink

Would this model be handy to convert to the COI car?

I did actually sell my PJ version around Christmas time, but as it was to a fellow forum member I felt guilty (knowing that the IXO version was imminent), so I told him that it was on it's way, and gave him a full refund. cheers

See, there are some decent people still left in this world! Rolling Eyes

Indeed it is correct Mark. Wink However, the complete side intake should really be white, but I guess they've had difficulty printing the item all the way around the back of the vent so have had to leave that white. It's white on PJ's version too - although painted white not tremendously well! Rolling Eyes

Not sure if the Unipart logos on the side are identical?

Quite right Juha - the Unipart side graphics are indeed different on the 1986 CoI entry, and it was still RHD for that event as well. Wink

The CoI car was his 1986 BRC entry (Reg No C997 LCA) prepared and run by R-E-D, but his RAC Rally entry was an Austin Rover Motorsport, Cowley prepared entry (Reg No C96 KOG) - as I'm sure you knew. Wink

Here's Dave's PJ Code 3 version of the CoI car - hope you don't mind me reposting this here mate?... It looks like PJ has incorrectly based his on a LHD base model! Rolling Eyes
