After three straight Monte Carlo wins in Mitsubishi Lancers, Tommi Makinen got his fourth in a Subaru in 2002.

I'm far from an expert on 1:43's but I've got no complaints about this model (well ok, the antennae are too thick)...I think AUTOart did a great job on it.

1:18's are still going to be the focus of my collection...I'd had a few 1:43's, but then I came across a great deal on a bunch of 1:43's and added about 30 of them. I expect it will be the same in the future...not actively pursuing 1:43's, but if I find some cheap I'll grab them.

Well, it wasn't quite all in one pop...I spread it over several weeks.

Well, for the time being at least, the slope isn't that slippery. My 1:43 purchases will be in the realm of opportunity rather than necessity. When I come across a deal too good to pass up I'll be all over it, but otherwise will be sticking to 1:18. As for the pics, they're giving me fits...I'm to the point with 1:18's where I can usually shoot eight or ten shots and get at least a few that are good enough to post. With the 1:43's I often have to go back and shoot a second session before I get some half decent ones. Wish they turned out half as good as yours.

Hey John,
1/12 scale Minichamps motorcycles are so easy to photograph that they almost take the pictures themselves! You should pick up a few!!! :giggle

Really though, the pics look great and so does the car! Looks like they really did a great job on it!

:cheers
Sean

Nice model John. Not a big fan of the bug eye headlights but the model really looks good in the flesh. Waiting to see all the 30 together. :cheers

Thanks Winston! Apparently you aren't alone in your dislike for the bugeye version...I think the fact that I like it puts me in the minority.

Nice addition, the bug eye rally car isnt my favourite but I prefer it to the current wrc car. I like this Autoart version, its alot better than the Ixo casting. Great pics too.
