This is a scale model kit to be assembled by an adult; it includes all the parts as indicated, but it does not include glue or paints.
We have not yet had time to digest the surprise and joy that the announcement of the release of the Ford Sierra Cosworth 4x4 Gr.A model meant, and D.Modelkits surprises us with the announcement of its next two references, which turn out to be from another model that was really missed among rally lovers. There is still a little to see the result, but as long as it resembles what we have seen from the Sierra, it will not disappoint in the least. Asphalt or dirt? And why not both?

The Célica GT-Four ST205 made its World Rally Championship (WRC) debut at the 1995 Monte Carlo Rally. The ST205 became the official car of the Toyota TTE team in 1995, driven by world champions Didier Auriol. and Juha Kankkunen.
The 1995 edition of the Portugal rally, played entirely on gravel, was going to provide one of the most beautiful duels between two great drivers, Carlos Sainz and Juha Kankkunen. In the early stages of the rally there was a balance of power between Kankkunen and Sainz, in which McRae and Auriol timidly mixed. Halfway through the first stage, Sainz began to chain a series of brilliant times that allowed him to finish the first stage in the lead, leaving the Finn six seconds behind. However, the balance tipped back to the side of Toyota at the end of the second stage, and curiously by the same narrow margin, six seconds, so the stages in the Arganil area were called to make a judgment. And that was where Carlos Sainz brought out all his genius, pressing Kankkunen section by section, putting him on the ropes. This caused the Finn to lose "the papers" in the last two stages, with errors that gave Carlos Sainz the victory by a margin of 12 seconds. The rest finished to a world, with McRae in third position to more than 3 minutes, followed by the other Toyota of Schwarz and Auriol in fourth and fifth position respectively.
