80ties touring cars

Post by JBRedondo » Thu Jan 24, 2013 8:01 pm

This is my very incomplete 80ties touring cars collection.There were other important cars like Volvos 240T, Rover Vitesses and others, that I need badly.
If you have some of these, post them right here,please.

The first two pictures are showing a mix of Bmw635csis, Jaguar XJ-S and two Ford Sierra RS 500 Cosworths.
All models are Minichamps.

The next two are BMW M3s only. Some models are Minichamps, IXO and one Autoart.

...and, the photos are really outstanding, as usual!

Is that #52 Lease Plan BMW from Spa? Also what year did Minichamps release it? I really like it and it's one I haven't come across before.

I think the Lease Plan car is the IXO version, see link below for one that's for sale on ebay

DeadCanDanceR Thanks for your approval

CGC Retro thanks. I do like those big coupes as well. Just realised, I forgot to ad 635csi Jagermeister, autoart model!

JasonPotato thank you

Rat thanks. I used to have about 15 BMWs in 1:18, all 70ties and 80ties. Sold them all on E-bay two years ago.

Zeus that's a good stuff. thanks for posting. I really like that Sierra.

thetrooper, KILOHMUNNS answered it already. It is an IXO special made for Hekorsa. If you like it, buy it, it is relatively rare.

OK that's probably why it slipped under my radar. I think I will add it soon.

Here's a new addition to my ETC Spa 24hours race collection: Group A BMW 528i, 1982 race winner. It is also my first Neo model. While it is not bad, I'm not that much impressed. One of the reasons is, it arrived with missing exhaust pipe(I had a similar problem with an Spark model some time ago). The one seen at the bottom right picture is my own improvisation and I know, it looks awfully.

Shame about the exhaust as the model looks fabulous in the Bastos colours

Assume it came nannied with decals to apply Jerry?

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Yes it did. The aplication wasn't very hard fortunately and I think they worked out OK.
Thanks for your response.

I have both the Bastos and Gitanes versions.They are good,but some details grate,such as the
ride height and the application of smaller decals,especially compared to photos of the real cars.

Phil, you are right, good is all one can say about this model, but it grown on me a bit. I didn't know, they make the Gitanes version. Is it #26,that finished second? I think, there was a Lucky Strike liveried car as well.
It would be nice, if you can post the picture of your Gitanes car here.

DeadCanDanceR thanks. The 2nd generation of BMW 5series was always one of my favorite cars. I mean the proper european version, not the U.S. model with smaller headlights and those stupid looking oversized bumpers.

Jerry.Here is a pic of the Gitanes car,and it is the 2nd place car of Jarier,Trintignant and Tassin.Image
Yet to apply decals,and the same queries apply to the above as with the Bastos car ie poorly located decals,missing marker lights etc,but....nobody else makes it!!

Hi Phil. Thanks for your pictures. That model is very tempting actually. I'm glad you are familiar with http://www.touringcarracing.net/ . I have some of my own pictures there in the pictures section.

Very nice.
The pairing of the Jaguar XJS and the BMW 635 are among the most beautiful rivals in the history of motor-sport.
Stunning
