I picked up 2 Altaya 1/18 Celicas a few months back with the intention of converting them to Irish rally models.
Ive finished the artwork for McHales 97 winning car on the Rally of the Lakes for the Altaya models but now going to hold off until the Otto is released and build from that instead.

I do plan on getting some extra sets printed to sell, so if anyone is interested, now is the time to pre-order the Celicas from Otto for a reasonable price before they sky rocket.
Numbers at the moment will be 5 but if there's enough interest I could push it to 10.

Has this been released in 1/43? Any interest in this model in this scale?

Couple of photos of the Altaya based 1/18 using home printed decals. Final decals will be sized for Otto instead and printed professionally. Still need to find some bases for the 1/43s

When Otto released their version of the Celica, there was 2 sent directly to me to build into the McHale celica.
The decals I had scaled for the Altaya version would not fit so I need to rescale pretty much all of them again to get them to fit.

Finally got them completed about 2 years after starting them, and the buyer took delivery of them during the week.
But not before I took a few bits of them myself. Not sure whether to keep the Altaya one for myself or sell it and build myself another Otto.
Ive only got 2 bases left and would like to keep one in factory colours

Indeed it is. On the left hand side coming out of Dublin on the N7 at Rathcoole. Grand place for a bit of carvery.
