For the last few months I`ve began to collect various models of Rally Cars, old and new, from makes sauch as Corgi/Bburago/Matchbox/Solido/Saico/IXO And a few others

Ok!, I Know some of these names aren`t as "Good" as your other names that come in kit form/Specially Built that are usually talked about on this forum but I Reckon some of these models are pretty good!:laugh:

Here are a few pics of my collection!





I`ll try to get a few more on later!:laugh::laugh:

I used to collect similar to above till I found Showcase Models ran by a very good personal friend Mike Nellis of Penrith in Cumbria in 1990 and thats when the rally model collecting really took off (and lightened my bank account lol).

Sadly the business is not there not there now as Mike has retired but a lot of his work and business name has been taken over by Xavs Models and knowing Xavier along with his business will keep the quality of Mike's work / clients work on going.

Got a few things here hopefully someone can help with, Saw an old Corgi Rally Set in my local model shop today and was wandering weather its worth the asking price of 12 quid?

The set includes A Toyota Corolla Twin Cam in the Datapost Colours and entered the Skip Brown Rally, [1/43 scale], along with the car is a Ford Transit Van again in the Team Datapost colours

Set must be from mid to late 80`s and In mint condition!, any good then?

Also anyone know who actually drove that Toyota Corolla on the Skip Brown Rally, [Welsh Event], car was No. 63 I Think!

Cheers!

Grab it if you can-that sort of think is rare and someone will have it off you on eBay. Corolla twin cam in datapost colours-could be Mann's car-he drove some thing like that in the 80s

Cheers for that info!, will have to grab it A.S.A.P!

This is the latest addition to my collection, its a MIRA Built Lancia Delta S4 In the Totip/Repsol colours, very nice looking car!



I Think its a spanish manufacturer, MIRA Never heard of it before, anyone know info of the car itself, I Thought it looks like the same colours that Carlos Sainz had on his Delta Integrale but this is a Delta S4 Model, so I`m not sure!

Thanks again!

Just been talking to Xav and he said despite his ebay stuff he has about 600 models and about 500 kits "jeesarse"

No doubt these will be going on ebay

Guess my bank balance will go down when my collection gets bigger

Just been looking at the Audi Quattro that I was talking about on here in an earlier thread at my local model shop, he`s only just got it in and selling at 12.50

Is it worth it? looks to be a rare model as they are never on e-bay?

Here is the one,




Can anyone tell me how many versions of the Audi Quattro Matchbox did in that the Superkings scale?

thanks!:laugh:

I remember a different version to that one with Brown striping and if I can think back that far I had one.

Price wise I suppose a tenner but then again it depends on what you think its worth and if you want it that much
