  1. Peugeot 207 S2000 P.Valousek Jun, Bohemia Rally 2011 1:24 scale Reji Model The 2011 Rally Bohemia was round 6 of the European Rally Cup Central, as well as round 5 of the Czech Rally Championship. It was held over the weekend of 1st - 3rd July and ran a total length of 191.37km. The Czech driver Pavel Valousek Jun and his co-driver Zdenek Hruza entered the event, driving a Peugeot 207 S2000, run by the Peugeot Delimax Total Team. He would set the fastest times on 3 of the 15 special stages, with 4th fastest being his lowest stage finish. He would end the event in 2nd place overall, 35.2 seconds behind the veteran Belgian stager, Freddie Loix. Valousek Jun made his rally debut in 1999, at the age of 20 and competing in the Rallysprint Kopna, piloting a Honda Civic Vti. He has driven a wide variety of rally machinery from the likes of Skoda, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Toyota, Ford, Citroen, Peugeot, Renault and Suzuki, and competed in JWRC, PWRC, ERC, IRC and WRC events. This year, he can once again be found behind the wheel of an S2000 Peugeot 207 of the Delimax Czech National Team. Decal set number 174 from Reji Model features the Peugeot 207 S2000, as driven by Valousek Jun at the 2011 Rally Bohemia. The decals have been designed for use with the Belkits 207 S2000 (kit No BEL001). Inside the standard zip-lock bag, we find 2 full sheets of decals ( along with a small addition sheet) and a colour fold-out paint and marking guide. The paint job required for this one couldn’t be simpler. The body shell is sprayed gloss white (Reji recommend Tamiya TS-26) and then the trim around the windows and front grill can be painted black. Everything else is supplied on the decal sheets. The blue and red strips are supplied in segments which are sensibly separated around selected panel joints. I would imagine that with the help from a little setting solution, they will snuggle down nicely over the body curves. Then the plethora of sponsor decals and rally placards can be applied. Reji have even supplied a number of decals to go inside the car (their placement is shown on the reverse of the paint guide), with most of them going on the racing seats. We also have the correct OMP logos, which are needed for the harnesses. The decals themselves are the usual excellent Reji quality. All the images are sharp and crisp, with colours being nice and strong. The carrier film is extremely fine and the registry looks spot on. Conclusion This is the sort of aftermarket sheet that makes you want to buy the required kit, just so you can use the decals. They really are that nice. It’s a very simply paint job, the decal application shouldn’t be too taxing and you will end up with a rather attractive looking little Pug to add to the collection. What’s not to like?. Recommended without hesitation. Review sample from
  2. Fiesta S2000 M.Prokop Deutschalnd Rally 2011 1:24 scale Reji Model Czech driver Martin Prokop, made his WRC debut at the age of 23, in the 2005 Monte Carlo Rally, competing in the Junior category and piloting a Suzuki Ignis S1600. He would finish in 9th place in the JWRC championship, come years end. The following year he switched to a Citroen C2 S1600 and gained his maiden JWRC rally victory, at the Spanish Rally Catalunya. Still competing in the Junior class, Prokop would win Rally Deutschland and the Tour De Corse, in 2007 and finished 3rd in the championship standings. In 2008 he began contesting both the JWRC and PWRC (Production World Rally Championship). The following year, he secured the Junior championship and finished 2nd in the Production class. 2010 would see Prokop switch to the new Super 2000 WRC championship, driving a Fiesta S2000 for the Czech Ford National Team. He became the first S2000 driver to win a special stage of a WRC event, on SS16 of Rally Sweden. He continued in the S2000 class, until finally making the switch to the senior WRC category in November 2011, when he entered Rally GB, using a Fiesta RS WRC. His first full WRC season (2012) would end with 9th place in the championship standings. This year, he is still in a Fiesta RS WRC, driving for the Jipocar Czech National Team and is currently sitting in 9th spot in the championship. Decal set No 195 from Reji Model features the Fiesta S2000, in which Martin Prokop took 6th place at the 2011 Rally Deutschland. The sheet is designed to be used in conjunction with Belkits Fiesta S2000 model (BEL002). The paint finish required for this car is going to be quite labour intensive, requiring some very careful masking to ensure everything lines up straight and symmetrical. The base colour is gloss white and then on top of this, there are large blocks of red down the flanks, on the roof and the centre of the bonnet. The rear of the car is largely blue, along with the lower edge of the front spoiler. Finally, we also have strips of gold running from the edge of the bonnet, up the “A-Pillars” and along the roofs edge, as well as additional gold bands which angle up the sides, onto the doors. Once that task is completed, your attention can turn to applying the decals. Reji supply everything needed, on one sheet, with a small correction sheet for 2 sponsor badges which go on the roof. Once again, the quality of the decals is excellent. The images are sharp and clear, with bold colours. The registry is spot on and the sponsorship logos all appear very authentic to the originals. Everything is printed on very fine and glossy carrier film. Conclusion Due to the complexity of the paint job required, perhaps this is one for the more advanced Rally modellers among us. On the other hand, we only advance ourselves through experience, so if you feel confident enough to try it out, I’d say go for it. Take your time and with some careful masking and painting, you’ll end up with a very colourful car to add to the collection. I can’t speak well enough of the decals themselves. They are simply another very high quality product from Reji Model. Review sample from
  3. BMW 635 CSI J.M. Ponce, El Corte Ingles Rally 1985 1:24 scale Reji Model Jose Maria Ponce has become a familiar face among fans of the Spanish Rally Championship. Born in 1955, he entered his first event, the Rally El Corte Ingles in 1977, driving a Toyota Levin and finished in a respectable 8th position. He would become a regular attendee of this event. In 1985, piloting his BMW 635 CSI, he won the Rally Isla de Gran Canaria. The following event, was the El Corte Ingles, which he entered alongside his co-driver, Isabel Fernandez, once again in the 635. Unfortunately, their rally was ended prematurely when engine trouble forced them to retire. Over the years he has driven a wide variety of machinery, from the likes of Toyota (Corolla Coupe and Celica GT4), Ford (Escort Cosworth), Volkswagen (Golf Gti , Golf IV Kit Car and Polo S1600) and Peugeot (P306 Maxi and P206 WRC).He his best known for his long association with BMW, though. Driving a number of different models, from the old 2002, several 323i and 325i’s, M3’s and of course, his 635 CSI. He has competed in national Spanish national events each year, since 1977, as well as a number of WRC and ERC rounds. In 2013, he was once again at the wheel of his trusty E30 M3 and finished 3rd in the Rally Villa de Santa Brigida. It would appear that for Jose Maria, rallying really is in the blood. The decals The lovely people at Reji have once again supplied us with a review sample of one of their latest decal sets. Sheet no 193 provides us the opportunity to replicate the BMW 635 CSI, as driven by Jose Maria Ponce and co-driver Isabel Fernandez at the 1985 Rally El Corte Ingles. Inside the clear zip-lock bag, we find one colour printed, 4-view paint and decal guide and 2 sheets of decals. The markings are for use with either the Tamiya BMW 635 (kit nos 24061 & 24322), or Fujimi’s version ( kit nos 082455 & 082608). The paint work on this one couldn’t be much simpler. The body shell is gloss white overall, except for the bonnet, which is finished in black. I found some old footage online, which appears to show this black as being either glossy or semi gloss, but there is a definite sheen apparent. Aside from the trim, the only other pieces which are going to need some careful masking, are the wheels. These are the distinctive BMW cross-wire alloys and they have a chrome outer rim, with the centre lattice work painted gold. With paintwork complete, decaling can begin. Reji Model supply all the main sponsor logos, entry numbers, licence plates and placards on the larger sheet. The smaller decal sheet contains things such as the sunshade sponsor strip, competitor names, some smaller sponsor markings and the BMW Motorsport stripes, which appear at the forward end of the shark nose. Quality is on par with the other sets that I have seen from Reji and that, is excellent. The printing is very sharp and registry is very accurate. The bonnet Texaco star emblem with the fine white surround, being a good example of this. Colours are nice and bold and each marking is printed on extremely fine carrier film, with the absolute minimum of excess film around the edges. They look like they will be a pleasure to use. Conclusion Another superb quality release from Reji Model. This is a great choice of subject, being a little out of the ordinary, with an older car from surely one of the sport’s longest serving pilots. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

  4. Citroen C4 WRC, P.Solberg & P.Mills, Catalunya Rally 2009 1:24 scale Reji Models Like his older brother Henning, Petter Solberg began his motorsport career by competing in Rallycross. The day after he passed his driving test in 1992 (which was 3 days past his 18th birthday), he entered his first event. He would go on to become the Norwegian champion in both Rallycross and Hillclimbing, in 1995, winning an impressive 19 out of 21 events. He repeated this success the following year, being victorious in 15 from 19 events. He made his stage rally debut in the 1995 Norwegian Rally Bjørkelangen, piloting a Volvo 240. He would go on to become Norwegian Rally champion in 1998, bringing himself to the attention of several World Rally Championship (WRC) teams. He signed as a junior driver for Ford, in 1999, but was unexpectedly thrust into the limelight when Fords No2 driver, Thomas Radstrom, was unable to compete in the Safari Rally due to injury. Solberg was entered into the event in his place, as a nominated points scorer for Ford. Despite being one of the most challenging rallies on the calendar, Solberg not only completed the event, but finished in an impressive 5th place. Of course, he is best known for his association with Subaru. He joined the Prodrive Subaru World Rally Team (WRT) in 2000 and became the first Norwegian WRC champion, when he took the drivers title in 2003. He would also finish as runner up in 2002, 2004 and 2005. When Subaru withdrew from the WRC in December 2008, Solberg was left without a drive for the 2009 season. After weighing up his options, he decided to enter the championship as a privateer and acquired a 2006 spec Citroen Xsara WRC and formed the Petter Solberg WRT. Along with regular co-driver, Phil Mills, the team made their debut at the Norwegian rally, finishing in 6th place. The following round, in Cyprus, Solberg and Mills would finish in 3rd place, the first time since 1993 that a privateer team had finished in a podium position. He would continue to battle for 3rd and 4th spots for every rally that followed, up until Rally Finland, where he was forced to retire. Feeling that he had taken the Xsara as far as he could, he began the search for a more competitive car. After sitting out the Australian Rally, he returned for the final 2 rounds of the season, with a Citroen C4 WRC, which had been upgraded to something near the spec of the Citroen factory cars. Piloting the C4, he would finish in 4th spot at both the Catalunya Rally and Rally GB, securing 5th spot in the drivers championship, come years end. He would better that result a year later, by finishing 3rd in the drivers championship, once again piloting a privately entered Citroen C4. He would switch to the Citroen DS3 WRC for the 2011 championship (finishing 5th in the title), while 2012 would see him return to the Ford factory team, driving a Fiesta RS WRC (once again finishing 5th). Unfortunately, with Fords withdrawal from the WRC, he once again found himself without a seat for the 2013 championship, but he can now be seen in the European Rallycross Championship. One of the latest decal releases from Reji Model, set No 199 features the privateer Citroen C4 WRC, which Petter and co-driver Phil Mills drove to 4th spot in the 2009 Spanish Catalunya Rally. The clear Zip-Lock bag contains 2 sheets of decals and one colour, 4-view paint and decal guide. The decals are designed for use with the Heller 1:24 Citroen C4 WRC (kit no 80756). After applying a gloss white basecoat, some careful masking is going to be required in order to paint the curvy black markings on the body shell and to get them looking symmetrical. The rear spoiler is finished in black, as is the front edge of the bonnet. A yellow band is required around the lower edge of the front valance, which extends around and behind the wheel arches, on to the forward end of the doors. This should be quite a simple task, as it is all straight edges. Once painted up, your attention can turn to applying the multitude of sponsor decals and placards, etc. As with previous releases, Reji have done their research very thoroughly. The markings all appear very accurate and authentic. The decal sheets are fantastic quality, featuring pin-sharp images, printed on extremely thin and glossy carrier film. The colours (and the blacks and whites, for that matter) are nice and bold. I cant forsee any issue with their use at all. Conclusion Another fantastic quality product from our friends at Reji Model. I have no hesitation in recommending them to fellow Rally fans, as they offer a welcome alternative scheme for the Heller C4 model. Review sample from
  5. BMW 635CSI, Juma Team, 24h Spa 1983 decals 1:24 decal set from Reji Models The BMW 6srs range first took to the street in 1976, it went through various models and upgrades during the models life until the range was discontinued in 1989. Juma Racing was formed in 1974 and was biased in Belgium. The team is still going but is now under the name Racing Bart Mampaey and is credited with 3 wins in the 24h race Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. Reji have released a set of decals to alow you to build the car that won the 1983 race, piloted by a 3 driver team of Thierry Tassin, Hans Heyer and Armin Hahne. The BMW 635 CSI is available in 1:24 from either Tamiya or Fujimi. The decals come on a single sheet packed in a zip lock bag and the enclosed instructions are 4 colour diagrams showing the location of the decals. The model will need some carful painting and masking to alow you to reproduce the red and white areas on the car, the white stripe that crosses the bonnet and falls diagonally down the wings will need some careful masking. The decals are screen printed and the colours look good and sharp. They mirror the logos and decals used on the car during this race. Conclusion As I have come to expect the decals are a very high quality and are well researched by Reji. Take care when masking and painting the car and you will have a great model. Review sample thanks to,
  6. BMW 635CSI, John Player Special 1:24 decals from Reji The BMW 635 CSI is part of the BMW 6srs model range, hitting the road in 1976 going through various models and upgrades until 1989. The John Player Special (JPS) team is an Australian race team that raced in the Australian and New Zealand Touring car, and sport sedan series. The team raced the 635 CSI between 1981 and 1986. The car featured in this decal set will let you build a BMW 635 driven by New Zealand born driver Denny Hulme from either the 1984 Bathurst that was raced at the Mount Panorama Circuit in Bathurst, New South Wales in Australia, or the 1985 Oran Park, again in New South Wales. Denny Hulme sadly died during a race a Bathurst in 1992 after suffering a heart attack at the wheel of a BMW M3. The BMW 635 CSI is available in 1:24 from either Tamiya or Fujimi. The decals come on a single sheet packed in a zip lock bag. The instructions are 4 colour diagrams showing the location of the decals, the instructions also highlight the differences in markings between the two races. For clarity the instructions show the car in white, but the body of the model should be a semi-gloss black. Reji recommend a Tamiya colour TS14. The decals are very well printed and the gold is nice and metallic and the colours and sheen looks good on the sheet. The decals are screen printed and they are sharply done. Conclusion A nice high quality set of decals from Reji! Review sample courtesy of
  7. Ford Fiesta WRC Decals, 'Prokop' 2011, & 2012 decals from Reji in 1:24 The Ford Fiesta is a very popular hatchback car seen on streets worldwide, this innocent little hatch has also been transformed by Ford and m-Sport for the Ford World Rally team and it took to the rally in 2011 with a 1.6 litre engine and 6 speed sequential gearbox. Reji Model has released 2 sets of decals for the WRC Fiesta as raced by Martin Prokop in the 2011 Welsh Rally, and the 2012 Monte Carlo Rally and will suit the Belkit (BEL003) kit. Martin Prokop debuted on the WRC in 2005 after 4 years driving in the Czech Rally Championship he took part in the Junior WRC category, working his way through various cars he took to the wheel of the Fiesta WRC in late 2011. Prokop drives as part of the Jipocar Czech National team that was formed in 2010. Prokop Rallye Monte Carlo 2012 The Monte Carlo rally is organized by the Automobile Club de Monaco, the same group that organizes the Monaco F1 Gran-Prix, it first ran in 1911 and the 2012 event took place in early January 2012. Prokop completed the rally in his Fiesta and finished in 9th place overall. The decals come in a zip-lock bag as we have come to expect from Reji. The decals are the usual high quality and are very comprehensive; the printing is sharp and in register for the review sample. The kit will need painting in white, then masked for the red and black areas. The instructions are the usual Reji format, colour drawings showing the placement of all decals. A small bonus in this set is a small etched metal Monte Carlo rally plaque. The etch is a nice small detailed part that you could place the decal on with lashings of softener, or you could paint it red then white on the raised areas. Wales Rally GB, 2011 The 2011 Wales rally GB was the 67th outing of this event, and took place in early November. The event was biased in Cardiff but stages where held throughout Wales. The decals follow the usual format, they come in a zip lock bag with the decals and colour instructions. The decals are to the expected high quality and are a completely comprehensive set. You will need to paint the model white and again mask the red and black areas. Conclusion These are two nice sets for rally fans. Both sheets are different if you look to mirror the changes in decals and sponsors between the 2 events. Both come recommended due to the high quality of the sets! Review sample from
  8. Porsche 911 Carerra 2.7RS '1974 Safari rally' 1:24 decals from Reji The 911 Carerra 2.7RS is said by some to be the best 911s of all time, the RS stands for Rennsport in German, or translated to race sport in English. The 911 RS was raced in the 1974 Safari Rally that took place between the 11th, and the 15th April 1974 in Kenya. The car that took part was a 1973 model (previously in a Yellow ‘Bosch’ sponsor livery) and it had a rear mounted 2.7l air cooled engine. The car depicted in this sheet from Reji came 2nd, and was driven by Bjorn Waldegård with Ha­ns Thorszelius as his co-driver. The car was in first place until the rear suspension collapsed on the last leg of the event. The car is now preserved by a couple in Stuttgart and still takes part in historic events. Reji recommend the Fujimi 911 (12152) as a base for this build. The decals are screen printed and the detail is very nice, with some very small writing on some of the logos being readable with my eyes. The decals come over 2 small sheets that are packed with decals. The decals are numbered and this is referenced on the colour instruction sheet. You will need to paint the car body white before applying the decals, most of the fit to the outside of the car but there are 3 dial decals to fix to the dashboard to show the extra dials carried by this car over the rally. You will need to carefully mask and paint a clear green to the top of the windscreen for the sun strip on the 1:1 car before adding the Porsche logo decal. Conclusion A nice set of high quality decals from Reji for a classic rally car. Review sample from
  9. Subaru Impreza WRC 2003 Acropolis Rally 1:24 Decals from Reji The Subaru Impreza debuted on the rally stages in 1993; developed by the British company Prodrive with its flat 4 ‘Boxer’ engine coupled to a 4 wheel drive chassis using active differentials, a first on a rally car. The Prodrive WRC was shorter than the road going Impreza being 160mm shorter, giving a shorter wheelbase. This set of decals from Reji will let you build a 2003 model Impreza WRC, this year the Impreza had a face lifted body following the road car, and some improvements on the engine and turbo. Throughout this season there were 2 drivers, Solberg drove the #7 car, and Mäkinen drove the #8 car, this sheet will alow you to build either car used during the Acropolis Rally in 2003. Reji recommend you use a Tamiya Subaru Impreza (24276) as a base for this build along with their resin bumper conversion set SP/978. The decals come over 2 screen printed sheets and come in a zip lock bag with the instruction sheet. They look well printed, sharp and in register. They look very comprehensive and include the different registration plates for either car, and both 7 and 8 door numbers are included. They are very nice and the distinctive 555 sponsor logos look spot on. The instructions come on a colour sheet with 4 views of the car showing the decal placement. You will need to choose which drivers car you want to build and ensure you pick the correct door numbers, Solberg is 7, and Mäkinen is number 8. Conclusion This is a very nice set, well printed and high quality, of a popular rally car in a popular livery. Reji recommend using their resin bumper(Part number SP/978) on the Tamiya kit to produce an accurate model. Review sample from
  10. Citroen C4 WRC, Petter Solburg GB Rally 2009 1:24 decals from Reji The Citroën C4 WRC is a rally car built for the World Rally Championship by Citroen Racing. Loosely based on the C4 road car it replaced the Xsara WRC for the 2007 season. Petter Solberg was a well known WRC driver and at the start of the 2009 season he announced he was to start his own team, the ‘Petter Solberg World Rally Team’ and using a 2006 specification Citroen Xsara. He became unhappy with the Xsara and looked for a replacement car. He found a 2008 C4 WRC and was able to get the car up-dated close to the specification of the very successful Sebastian Loeb and raced the new car for the last 2 events of the 2009 season. These were the Catalunya Rally, and the Wales Rally GB where he finished 4th in both events. The Citroen C4 WRC is available in 1:24 scale from Heller as an injection moulded kit and Reji models have added a decal set to alow you to build Petter’s car in the 2009 Rally GB colours. The decals come over 2 small sheets and are packed in a zip-lock bag with an instruction sheet; it looks like the bigger sheet covers the Solberg car with the smaller sheet for the specific Welsh Rally. The sheets are screen printed and very comprehensive including all the sponsor logos along with the safety decals required for competition. The colours are well printed and the details are crisp and don’t look too thick. You will need to paint the model white then carefully mask of the back for the black area, and the lower front for the yellow areas. The instructions come on a sheet with 4 colour diagrams showing the decal placement. The decals are numbered on the decal sheet and on the instructions. They look clear and easy to follow. Reji recommend that alongside the Heller kit you should use a Renaissance resin conversion set (Tk24/328) to produce an accurate model. Conclusion A very nice decal set, comprehensive and well printed. I have looked at pictures on the net of this car and the decals look accurate. Review sample courtesy of
