Newsletter 178: Let's go rallying!!!
As our main highlight, Reji Models delights us with the reedition of one of the classic rally kits, the Audi Quattro Sport in 1/24 scale, a completely mind blowing vehicle at his time that still causes admiration nowadays.
We also have in the shelves the new decals by Racing Decals 43 for the 037 and the DS3 at Montecarlo, and a beauty: the awesome decoration for Zanardi's Z3 GT3. On top of that, Mf-Zone expanded his rally decals catalogue with a good pile of decorations for the Fiesta and the Fabia, and also brings us some very interesting decals for the Impreza racing at the Barum Rally 2003.
Model Factory Hiro have reedited both Piquet's and Patrese's BT52 in 1/20 scale: ok, those are not rally cars (most of the time), but they belong to a limited edition that will as well jump off the shelves. And we don't forget about the little ones in 1/43 scale with the decals for the March Ford 761B in the different versions racing at Great Britain and South Africa.
The Repsol NSR500 scale model was released by Tamiya a few years ago, and now Shunko have redesigned its decals so you can replace the ones in your kit.
Rallies and scale modeling have a lot in common: they're both challenges that need huge amounts of skill, and in both you have to go through the different stages with determination, regularity and steady hands.
Well... yes, you go a little bit faster in rallies than in scale modeling, but that's not the point... or is it? :D
