Re-edition of a kit with which Tamiya surprised us a few years ago, with a technological innovation that, through a special mold, made it possible to manufacture the entire fairing of the kit in a single piece, something that had never been seen before. Once the model is assembled, both the fairing and the tail and tank can be removed to see all the details of the engine. The decals include the numbers of the three riders who, during the 1999 season, were at the controls of the RGV500 (Roberts Jr., Aoki and Kagayama).

The Tamiya kit faithfully recreates each and every one of the details of the real model, including a complete exploded view of the engine and exhaust system, which you can choose to leave "almost" in sight thanks to the "semi-transparent" plastic-injected fairing.

Reji Model Reference: REJI-050

For several seasons, apart from the two official cars for the starting drivers, it was common to see a third Ford Focus WRC entered in World Rally events. In 2001, and with the number #17 at its gates, Francois Delecour was his regular driver, but once his signing for Mitsubishi for 2002 was confirmed, Mark Higgins was in charge of driving the Focus in the 2001 RAC Rally. Despite being his first race in the world championship with a WRC vehicle, he was putting together a very good performance with times among the best before being forced to retire on stage 11 after hitting a spectator.

Tabu Design Reference: TABU20160

We love the reissues of those kits that made us dream so much when we were little, but for one reason or another we couldn't buy... but times change, and some brands don't give up their image so easily. We can enjoy the kit, but the decals are sometimes not completely complete. That is the case of the Tamiya Porsche 935 at 1/20 scale, but don't worry, because we already have available the complementary decal sheet with the Shell, Dunlop and Autoflug logos (for the harnesses) that we miss even in the box-art of the kit.
