In light of several (somewhat inaccurate!) MG Metro 6R4 models being created in left hand drive form in recent weeks - seemingly using IXO Models' Harri Toivonen 1986 Lombard RAC Rally 'Unipart' entry Rolling Eyes - I thought it would be beneficial to list ALL of the decals available to be fitted to IXO's long overdue release. Once all of the tampo print and decals have been removed, you will be left with a nice left hand drive plain white base model!

The following list includes decals that (a) have been available, and decals that (b) are still available - so just bear in mind that some of these are currently no longer available from the quoted sources... Wink 

CARLO ROVATTI :
1986 Okobank 1000 Lakes Rally - Mika Arpiainen - 'Leonardo'
1986 Okobank 1000 Lakes Rally - Harri Toivonen - 'Unipart'

GROUP B RALLY MODELS / VITOR LIMA :
1992 Rally Canárias - Aythami Alonso - 'Marlboro' - some (!) masking and spraying required however!
1988 Spanish Rally Championship - Fernando Capdevila - ‘Tenerife’
1989 Rally RACE Madrid - Patxi Arbelaiz - ‘Muddy Fox’
1987 Pikes Peak International Hillclimb - Tore Bratlie - ‘Glomma Papp - Solifer’ - some masking and spraying required however!

RALLY MODELS / ANDY HOWDLE :
1986 3-Stadte Rallye - Armin Schwarz - 'INA Wälzlager'

TAMEO - an obsolete white metal kit.
1986 Isola d'Elba Rally - Per Eklund - 'Clarion'

I think these are the ONLY MG Metro 6R4 decals that should use a white left hand drive base model, but if I have missed any please do point them out - honest, I won't bite! Wink

Thank you Juha - I knew somebody would spot an omission, and it doesn't surprise me that it was yourself! cheers I will edit the opening post accordingly. Wink 

I have kit-less Elba decals! Wink

So do I. Actually, I have the whole list, but not all of them are built.
