A few I have in mind/started/stalled

1/18 Wilson Quattro Sport Manx 85 using OTTO. Also Hannue 86 Shell ils car using Otto

Mouton Wouton Ulster Quattro using Otto Pikes peak

Otto Legacy to Bertie Fisher and Burns

Otto Audi 80 Quattro to Demutes Rally version.

McHale Black M3 using Otto
Fisher 4x4 Sierra using Otto rally. Actually bought the road car to get the non quad lights off it.
Also, have two Otto 1/12 road M3s which are planned to be rally cars-actually bought the 1/12 race car to get the tub and the cage with the intention of taking a mold for the tub and getting the dashboard scanned and printed up by 3d printer into a mirror image to give good RHD.

And the biggie: I have a 1/8 Spirit GT M3. I am currently gathering suitable-sized scale parts for the conversion. Have the rally seats and seatbelts from the 1/8 scale Hatchett Impreza WRC. Bought some 1/10 Tamiya RC wheels which need to be modified to create the right look of the Speedline gold wheels. Scanning the dashboard to 3d print a RHD dashboard.
