Cheers and hopefully a race version will follow but im sure there will be decal and or transkits for it.

Also looking at another pic really hope this is just a prototype test. The details are really soft nothing like there bikes of the past (just look at the rear sprocket)

Looks very nice. I hope this means Tamiya is waking up at last and maybe they can resurrect the 1/24th cars too. I would love to see some rally cars from them again. Can't remember what the last new one was, maybe the Peugeot 307 WRC..??

I totally agree with you but definitively have no hope for that, especially since Belkits, Heller and Simil'r have filled the gap in the last 3-4 years.

A very lucrative business for them would be to investigate the group B era. To be honest, I think my hopes are even smaller while considering that option...:frown:

I would agree 100%, but not holding my breath for that :frown: Imagine a Lancia Delta S4, Ford RS200, Audi Sport Quattro or Metro 6R4 in plastic from Tamiya. Now that really would be something. I'm sure they would sell by the lorry load :)

Hasegawa have produced a nice range of the old school rally cars like the Stratos/ O37 and Datsun Fairlady to name a few.

They haven't added to that range in recent years so one can only assume sales haven't meet their expectations.

is there a way to replicate brushed aluminum on a 1/12 scale?
I'd like to make the prototype race version that has all carbon fiber body with aluminum tank.

They have re-released those 3 models in the past few years so one can only assume sales have met their expectations :naughty:

And BTW, I wouldn't compare a rally Fairlady to a Delta S4 or an S1 Audi Quattro in terms of popularity ;)

I guess all the royalties bulls**t leads their minds...

I am also sure of that. For instance, take the Japanese modelers: as far as rally cars are concerned, their interests are:
1) Japanese WRC cars (Toyota, even an old car like the Celica ST165, Subaru, Mitsubishi)
2) close to n°1 : gr.B, no matter which country they came from
3) further away: modern WRC cars

So why don't they ? :headshake

Oh sorry, I realize I am totally off-topic :uhoh:
