Exclamation NEW Tamiya 2003 Peugeot 206 WRC

Announced today. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Is it just another cheap rehash of the previous five?

They seem to be good decals, especially knowing cartograf is making them...

I can't really tell if it's completely accurate ...

As for being the Monte version, shouldn't it have white decals where marlboro ones should go ? like on the EVO 7 ?

But, I for one, am very interested in this one, and will more then probably buy one (when it comes out here).

Maybe some more hard-core rally freaks could help you out here?

GUYS !

Olivier

edit; it seems they also have included the rally mechanics kit decals for this one, which is IMO, a nice plus to the overall kit, and a nice policy.

It's a rehash, another re-release with some different decals

Olivier is right, there should be white squares where the Marlboro logos would have been located, not only that but the wing is the wrong shape.
Not to mention the interior, they still haven't fixed the error with the roll cage and I have reservations about how correct the rest of the interior is.

The real car:

Tamiya is doing the Fujimi 'milk it for all it's worth' reissue method.

Can anyone see if the wing is the same that came with the "winner" version or has it been corrected?

Looks like the same old parts. But at least you can buy the Rennesaince trans kit with the correct wing, dashboard and an extra bonnet.

It's the same Alex, if you look at the photo from the Monte I posted and compare it to the Tamiya presentation photos, the wing is clearly incorrect IMO.

Pretty much as expected. Although wierd Tamiya didn't include the white squares, or aren't they even able to hint at tobacco advetising anymore? All the same faults as the previous NZ 2002 winner. On the plus side it looks like they've included a wider, taller air scoop on the roof.

I think Tamiya should stop worrying about bringing out the latest 'works' liveries at the expense of realism in the molding. Why don't they use the correct molding on an interesting privateer livery? Remember the Michelin Pilot Cossie (from the UK championship if I remember correctly) of a few years back? That way we could get an interesting looking model (there are plenty of privateer 206's to choose from) that is actually physically correct as well. As many privateers are running older spec cars it may be possible to have 2001 car in a 2002 livery etc. What do you think? They could do the same for all the WRC cars.

There is no doubt that this release is another 'rehash' of their existing kits, however, realistically Tamiya are:

1) Trying to get as much as they can out of the Peugeot Licensing.

2) Trying to recoup their development budget effectively (releasing a 'new' kit without spending too much money).

I for one like this livery, hoever, I feel a little gutted that I have bought the Renaissance transkit already. However, I will buy this Tamiya offering, I suppose that i can just use the Marlboro decals instead.

I like it cause it will go nicely with the Rally Lancer Evolution VII in my collection, plus I don't have a Pug yet.
