Why have the thinking heads of the world of modeling taken so long to bring out a marvel like the one we bring you today? By the hand of DAB Models we introduce you the 1/43 scale reproduction of the legendary Sega Rally 2 arcade machine... Combining rallies, video games and nostalgia all together? Come on man, who can resist that? XDDDD All the parts are made by 3D printing using the high quality resins that DAB Models has accustomed us to, achieving great detail and realism, which will undoubtedly delight the nerdiest of the geeks. We can already imagine more than a few racking their brains to find a way to include this arcade icon in some diorama XDDD

Of course this opens a whole new universe in the world of scale modeling that we do not know where it will lead us, but that we are eager to discover :D

What we do know is that the latest of the latest can always be found at SpotModel ;)
