Got this at a model show for $3 so I thought I would give it a go.  

 

It rolls so you can play with it after assembly.

It went together quite easily and there is a surprising amount of detail on the dash.

 

 

Just keep picking away at it...

There is a detailed interior....

and an extensive rollcage.

 

 

 

The body went on easily and obscured all of the afforementioned detail. Smile

I like the little touches like the mud flaps and the front tow hook.  The paintwork and decals were done very well too.  It's a good looking model.  The model was engineered well in my opinion, and in the right diorama, would make for a nice display.  

I built this at my parents house over the holidays and my mom gave it to the kid across the street.  He likes it too.  Win/Win.  Models make the world go 'round. Big Smile

Very nice looking rally truck.  I have never seen one of these models, but I will be looking for one.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Hello Rick,

Thanks for touching base.

There is a whole series of them.  Pretty cool.  There is also a series of European touring series saloon cars.  They are fun.

Thanks guys.  Can't take any credit for the paint or decals, because they were already done for me.  I was amazed at the level of detail in the cabin though.  I actually was feeling bad that I didn't detail it.  Of course I was at my parents place and didn't have any supplies, but I do think that the model is good enough so as to warrant it.  Thanks again for your comments.

Cool looking rally car. I have never seen this kit before, but I'll be keeping an eye out for one.
