Very nice, i'm still on the lookout for one of these with the correct taillights, they were changed after 1996 from the orange to the silver bit in the middle. Cant tell what yours has?

I wonder if they are going to make the Bintcliffe car too? Shouldn't be too difficult but it is possible to make it from the 1997 BBR decals.

Cheers, mine has the silver bit in the middle (didn't notice).

Surely they will, most of the work is done with the Muller car, fingers crossed.

Managed to get 1X white Ixo M3 as above from modellissmo,I will try to see if they have any more.
I also ordered 2 of the Kwan versions as well,as these seem slightly easier to find,but which will also mean removing the decals using nail polish very carefully.
As an aside,I think Cartima may have some of the Autoart plain M3s as well.

Nice Audi, like Matt I need to find a base model first before I can make it.

I have notice that Modellisimo have put some more plain M3s on ebay, increased the price by €5 as well!

I thought I'd left you a comment on the BMW, unless it's in another thread :? Anyway it's a great looking model and praise to DS Models for doing a great job on it.

Loving these photos. This leads to my questions. Firstly, can you tell us what the base model was for the Astra Coupes of 2001 & 2002 as nobody ever released these for the masses?
Secondly, can you tell me where you managed to get the Dunlop logos for the 2007 & 2008 Oxford Vectra tyres?
Superb line up you have, keep it up.

Cheers, I didn't make the Astra's but I think it was based on the standard Minichamps Road Car of the Astra Coupe.

I got the Dunlop decals from www.grandprixmodels.co.uk, if you search under Decals, and type in tyres. They are called Tyre Sidewall Markings Decals.

Well that was another comprehensive trip down memory lane. Brilliant selection

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.

Outstanding collection, mid 90's my favourite era.

Another staggering BTCC collection. The Escort in the Castrol colours looks really nice, and I have always wanted the Kaliber Sierra.

Cheers for the info VX1054, most useful. I'll bet those Astra conversions were not cheap though?

No worries happy to help. They were quite expensive, a little more than DS Models charge.

Well spotted PDS. I wonder what they will use as a base model for this. I also hope they'll consider the other cars from 2001-2004 like the Egg semi-works cars.
