posted in Diecast, Other Cars |

Today we received diecast replicas from Sun Star, Schuco and Vitesse.

After a bit of a delay, Sun Star have finally delivered their 1:18 replica of the Subaru Impreza 555 that Possum Bourne drove in the 1996 Rally of Australia (SS5505).

The only other 1:18 rally car was Federico Villagra’s 2009 Ford Focus RS WRC from the 2009 Acropolis Rally (SS3949). They also sent us 1:18 replicas of the 1970 Triumph Spitfire Mk.IV in Laurel Green (SS6003) and black (SS6004).

The best of the Schuco releases took the form of the 1:43 Slate Grey Porsche 911S that was driven by Steve McQueen in the movie, Le Mans (SCH3636). This was joined by the 1:43 Opel Manta B400 in white (SCH5547).

Finally, the best of the 1:43 Vitesse subjects was the Ford Escort RS1800 that Pentti Airikkala drove in the 1976 RAC Rally (V42378).
