D.Modelkits
Some time ago we began to hear that a new brand called D.Modelkits was preparing to release the plastic model of the Ford Sierra Cosworth 4x4 in both Monte Carlo 1991 and 1992 Portugal Rally versions. Since then we have all been impatient and eager to know more details but it has not been until today that we have been able to see the very first pictures of the assembled models and their exploded views. And everything looks awesome!!!

Besides the extensive plastic parts list, we will be able to enjoy rubber tires, REALLY good-looking and detailed decals, photo-etched parts, seatbelts and really interesting parts such as the night lights. Yay!!! The only "but" that we could find is that we will still have to wait until summer to get the first units... although of course you can already reserve them at SpotModel :)

What can we do while we wait? Well, for example, enjoy the new Arena models in 1/43 scale, or Shunko's reeditions of the decals for the Nissan Skyline in 1/12 scale by Fujimi and in 1/24 by Tamiya, or you can also reserve one of the new models from Tameo or Model Factory Hiro.

As you already know, at SpotModel we have scale models for all tastes... :D

With this model it is possible to create the version that competed in the 1982 24 Hours of Daytona, where Arutunoff himself was accompanied by Goellnicht and May, finishing in 26th position, and in the 12 Hours of Sebring of the same year, where they could not take the exit.

Reliability may not be their strong point, but that combination of yellow and black wins us over.
