As with nearly all older models you just need to be patient. The other thing that makes this hard to find (IMO) is that it has the full Rothmans livery. Something you won't see on a model made today as you would need to apply decals.

Why don't you share what you have in your collection? We don't mind answering questions about where to find a model but if that is all you do people will start to overlook your posts.

Yes, most folks start a thread in the Collection pics thread (viewforum.php?f=31) and post photos of their collection.

If you need assistance with posting photos this thread has some tips: viewtopic.php?f=52&t=7277

You will definitely find other rally car fans on this forum (I'm one!)

I'm two!

Agree with everything Douglas says. That's one of the very early releases. They don't come up that often on Ebay (you can get the health police "Racing" rather than "R0thmans" version cheaply) and so they tend to command a higher price. I would think you will pay somewhere around £50 these days for that one.

I've found one on the internet for you but i've never dealt with these guys before and i don't know where they ship to:

If you can find the email button on the web site, then i find google translate invaluable in contacting companies whose first language is not your own. I've bought from Russia and Czech Republic and Poland in this way before. It's often the only way i've been able to source a rare model at sensible prices. www.xe.com can convert the foreign currency to your preferred one to get an idea of a price to see if it is worth pursuing
