Any chance of pointing me in the right direction Peter? I can only seem to find LHD ones. A link would be great if possible?

This car is RHD and not a bad price at the moment!

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/IXO-Rally-Car ... 43c0f77889

There are a few there under what you paid.

There is also one there where the selling is obviously taking the piss...

Thanks Peter, money has run out now so I will have to wait a little while before buying.

And these are the reason why I have no money :D

It's a shame they didn't do a later season livery as it looks a little bare in places.

Wasn't intending to buy this yet but when it was a third off (over £40 saving) I couldn't resist.

The last model isn't a BTCC car, it's still in it's wrapping as I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet! It can be converted into the Steve Soper version that he drove in a couple of rounds in 1984, I know which decals are missing/need changing but just need to see if I can get them reproduced somehow.

Well this will be the last update of the year and I wasn't expecting it!!

Also have an apology to Matt as I know he wanted and was bidding on this model when it came up on ebay. Sorry Matt :oops: (honestly I didn't know)

The model is a Baymo BMW M3 E30 from 1991 driven by Laurence Bristow - it looks a pro built one.

Great models all, specially the Birrane's Mustang.
While I like your Neo Rovers, I'm waiting for the TWR Rovers with the Texaco/Bastos livery. Would you have any idea, when and if they will be available? I'd much appreciate the info.

Looks like someone has 2 Ebay accounts :twisted:

Going back over old emails, i did point the 2 out to you while they were active as they weren't listed great in another country and said i was going to bid on them. But hey, i'm not bitter. Just glad it's in your collection rather than anyone elses. Might have to try and persuade you to sell it to me instead :D

No Matt definitely only got one account...unlike some other I know!

Yep you did tell me and I only put them on my watch list, looks like someone has been keeping an eye on my watch list (more likely to see what I buying) and got a friend to bid on it for them as I didn't actually tell anyone.

Not sure I can really sell as it was a gift bit I feel guilty and will definitely have to make it up to you somehow this year.

Don't worry about it.

I did have 2 but the other one is closed i think due to inactivity. Been about 6 months since i used it.

A very nice Beemer and the kit it was built from looks like a high standard of quality. The livery is one I like a lot as well.

I've now started for 2014 with 2 new additions to the collection.

The first is a replacement for my Minichamps version, this model now means I have the full 1994 season by one manufacturer so no longer have different paint colours (I will do a group shot at some point but can't get them all at the moment)

1994 Ford Mondeo - Andy Rouse by Racing Replicas

The second is a conversion that I made very cheaply! The donor model is a Trofeu second which has a few parts missing (front indicators, Windscreen wiper) and very bad paintwork, also had to change the front light visors from a twin set to a single unit but all these were done with my spares pot. Also all the decals are from spares that I have kept over the years, all in all not too bad for less than £10!

looks good, Im guessing you bough one of the several hong kong sellers capri's, tempted to buy a couple and so some conversions myself only logos no resprays yet. Yours looks ace, did you find it easy to remove the front lights I removed some from one of mine and ended up damaging the front assembly annoyingly.

Thanks for your comments, yes I got one from a Hong Kong seller but be careful as you don't know what your going to get though. In my case not a problem as it was a full strip and respray but the original paint has a number of chips and bubbles and also need a little sanding down when the paint had come off, probably not the best models if you want to just apply decals (not forgetting the missing parts). Could be a good cheap model to have a practice with taking apart and spraying though.

With regards to the front light units (lights and grill) then this was really easy as I just undid the model and carefully pushed the unit out by the small holes on the metal work. It popped out really easily with no damage.

Thanks for your comment Dave, I'd only ever seen the rear view but looking closely at the cars in the British Touring Cars the Crowds favourite book I saw a better picture of it (that's the picture I copied for this model)

Good work on the Capri Chris. It's not the era I collect, but it really looks good enough for me to change my mind 8-)

Sorry for not replying but a lot of things are going on at once and I didn't see your post. If you've still got them then yes I would gladly and gratefully receive them.
Thanks

I have to agree Peter that it's a "little" off scale!! ;)

Still a lot better than I could do but I know it's the sort of thing that would really bug you :D
