Fujimi Subaru Legacy Touring Wagon - Subaru Rally Team Australia


Recommended Posts

This model of Fujimi’s Subaru Legacy GT Touring Wagon (#03553 / ID-106) has been built for my proposed diorama of the 2001 Rally Australia. The idea is that this fictional car acted as a support vehicle for Subaru Rally Team Australia; a period photo confirms a Subaru Outback with this number plate was used. Built out of the box with the addition of spare decals.

Nice idea to model all the cars that make up the cars needed to keep the actual rally car running ! All that's missing is a van ! 

  Chase cars not so much nowadays , but recce cars I think are an interesting subject . Remember the M Sport Volvo S60's , Citroen used unbadged Mitsubishi Evos , Hyundai ; BMW 1 Series and VW ; Golf R's .

Thanks for the kinds words everyone.

 

@Windy37 As to the van, watch this space. It will likley take longer than it should for me to finish, but I have an Italeri Eddie Stobbart truck plus some nice reference photos of the team truck of the Subaru Rally Team Australia from 2001. And an Italeri Volvo Globetrotter + Revell Car Transporter ....

 

I admit to being quite chuffed with the recce car Impreza. A mash-up of Tamiya's Rally GB and road going bug-eye Impreza kits that turned out reasonably good.

 

Cheers,

Grant.
