I've got a few 6R4's of late. All at very good prices and a nice set of rare decals  Very Happy  Decals and base cars will be going to Derby to spend some time with DC. I want them built properly. I would butcher them  Laughing

1/18 Toyota Corolla - Aust '98 for the princely sum of AUD15 inc postage. Pretty sure the postage and ebay fees would have sucked up the $15 lol

Or the whiskey lol.
 
All good. You did have me going though. Thought I had missed one. The main problem with that car is the number decal on the roof. Should be the same size as the door plates.
 
The car I want is the Safari Volvo. Even the non Safari version but the Safari is the beeknees

think i'm right in saying its listed often as 1981 safari, when its actually the 1980 ivory coast rally....bjorn drove a number 3 in the 1980 safari....... I think so anyway!!  Embarassed 
i'll get a look at the number  when she gets here hopefully!  Smile

was getting confused myself there m8, thought i'd check...
according to the experts......

1980......safari rally.....Waldegard.......Mercedes 450 SLC..........entry number 3..............finished........... 10th

1980.....ivory coast rally......Waldegard......Mercedes 500 SLC.........entry number 8........finished............1st

1981.....safari rally..........no result found, either retired or didn't enter

1981....ivory coast........Waldegard...............Toyota Celica 200GT....entry number 3...............dnf (engine failure)

model as produced

model partly fixed. Needs to get rid of front number plate and I think it needs hand holds on the boot area. Plus get rid of sunroof panel lines. But then you have to match the silver paint.

I have seen photos of a replica. Think Gerard may be friends with him. The initial photos I| saw had the large number. They may have used that car as their guide without really researching.

Glad to see we are on topic. hehe
