This car is a Minichamps and I must say its a Gem. Very well made.

This car featured in the 1983 Lemans coming in third. Another 956L (the Rothmans car) won Lemans that year.

A truely magnificient model, so beautiful, that I decided to keep this one even if I try to only collect winning Porsches.

Here are some outdoor pics, not so good, I will work on it later tomorrow.

Warning, all are above 200KB







Enjoy :cheers

To answer that question. For certain colors, the car had to be passed under the tampo machine more than once. For eg, to get green, the car has to be first passed under a blue pad and then under a yellow pad. Two operations. Cost increase. With a decal, its just a one time process. Calculate those two operations with a 1000 cars and you see how much time it will take. There will be many such secondary colors (i.e colors that need 2 or more primary colors to form it, e.g. purple, orange) on the car.

Good thing the Kenwood car (Unlike the Rothmans) doesn't need a decal change to make it look right.

Well done Bernard :nicejob

So true....

Such a shame that Tabacco sponsors are illegal on diecasts (except dealer editions) Still.... I think Minichamps did a fabolous job to make those Racing stickers. I know, not the real thing, but not that bad.
