Yeah, great model Mike. It's hard to find in Poland and the prices are crazy...

First time to hear about "Skid" brand! Is it affliated with Trofeo or Vitesse? Quite extensive range you got here Mike :-) I'm impressed by the variety!
Cool GT pics!

Thanks Marcjan, Erwin and daniel!

Sorry for the lack of info, Skid is an actual rally line of the Vitesse group.

I had to wait also to get a chance to own one because its an old release and harder to acquire.

Back to 1/43 Mike? I admit that I'm not spending as much time checking your 1/18 models, even if they are truly beautiful. In any case, it's a very fine model you have here once again.

@komenda:
Trofeu and Skid were both names of lines produced by Vitesse before it went under and was taken over by Sun Star. You can also add Onyx and Quartzo to this list.

thanks sir Laurent! :-) not really getting back because I only collect 1:43 and 1:18 rally cars nowadays,and had time to shoot a couple of 43's early this week. No more 1:64 except for one casting you will soon find out.

thanks also for the added info on the "SKID". :-)
