Very nice indeed.

 

Lovely line up of a fondly remembered era too.

 

One major omission though... Cough. Jaguar cough.... B-)

Yes, the Mazda is hard to track down these days.  Personally I'd like to see some of the C2 cars such as the Spice and the Ecurrie Ecosse cars in 1/24, but I'm pretty sure that will never happen.

 

You could add the lovely Lancia LC2 as well 🙂

yes that would be a nice Martini livery to add. for the le mans series there are 2 toyota GT one too (1998 and 1999) and 2 mclaren gtr long tail (loctite and gulf)

Excellent build of a fantastic subject. Certainly looks fast just setting still. Sadly, I was too young to enjoy the great Group C cars in person, but the 956 is one of my all-time favorite cars because of the Tamiya kit. 

 

I’ve got a question for you regarding the Eduard seatbelts. I’ve got a set in blue for a car I’m working on, but the front and back of the etch are two totally different textures, and more importantly, colors. Did you have this issue, and if so, how did you address it?

 

Thanks for sharing, and for any advice you have on the seatbelts!

Thanks i built a 956

one too, with rothmans livery. For the seatbelts I did nothing to address the texture problem, it's such a small detail Which is not likely to be seen so easily so I didn't care too much.

I saw in your last photo, quite the lineup there!

 

Maybe I need to be a little less picky and just deal with the belt!🤫 Hopefully no one will know!

On a tangent, I was just musing over the Protar 1/24 Lancia LC2 and found a review online https://robdebie.home.xs4all.nl/models/lc2.htm . Oh my goodness.  I have had several Protar kits in the loft for quite a few years now.  I've never been very impressed with the quality of the raw material but the Lancia looks particularly bad.  Given the prices they fetch these days (why?) I think the mortgage is reasonably safe...
