i was just wondering if this car will be hard to find when the 1st shipment sells out..

will it become rare? cos i'm kinda in a save $$$ mode right now... so i'm not too sure.... but then again... its only..."1" car right? hmmm.. i dun usually collect racing cars though... but seeing it at the store yesterday, it looked pretty good..so....

I would have to think that like all Minichamps, this one will get harder to find as time passes.
I am sure they will do other versions of the 956 so even if you miss this one another is sure to come along :cheers

Yeah they is none under them ones, or the little logos on the sides of the rear wing, and the larger logo in the middle of the engine cover, you need to get some decals for them spots, as some people told me that you are luckie to have Rothmans on the sides, as a few collectors cars did not have them.

I hope the PM I sent you helps.

:cheers

yo..i;m back.. yeap, the rear wing decal came off in one piece. the sides were a bit harder....
sadly, i accidentally scraped off a small tiny little bit of the rothmans underneath...but it doesn,t realy matter to me that much...

i dun have the decals, so i'll leave it as it is now with the rothmans on the side n rear wing

IIRC I heard that Minichamps will be releasing the 1982 Porsche 956L #1 driven by Derek Bell and Jackie Ickx in 1:18.

I will definitely be getting that, as long as it's possible to do the original Rothman's livery (if not already done).

from what the store told me, the newer releases of the car will not have the rothmans underneath the RACING decals anymore...
one of the reasons why i grabbed mine so quick...

it was the last one in the shop too...

i just noticed that on the sides of the car, both sides i have accidentally scraped a tiny bit off the rothman's paint.... and both are on the same area in regards to the body. so i think other ppl removing the decal along the sides, be more careful cos i think at a certain point, more glue was applied to the decal and it sticks to the rothman's tampo paint

I had the same experience with the side decals. Part of the blue paint came off with the decal. Easy fix with a touch of paint. Looks good now. :cheers
