Rallymodels has been on the web since 2000, it is run by Andy Howdle, He’s had rallying in his blood since the age of 5. As a spectator, marshal, organiser and competitor in both driver and navigator seats. After hanging up his crash helmet in 2002 due to a young family, the business of 1/43 model rallycars took over……..
Our first limited edition models, or Code 3 models were of the Sunseeker Powerboats sponsored Subaru WRC’s of Marcus Dodd, followed by the Jigsaw liveried Subary WRC’s of Mike Oats. We have recently concentrated on MK1 and MK2 Escorts from our friends at Trofeu in Portugal. To date we have produced over 100 different 1/43 rally models using our top quality UK sourced decals, on base models supplied by IXO / Trofeu and Spark.
Over the years were have been fortunate to have our website carried on the real rallycars we have made 1/43 scale models of, back in 2004 it was Tapio Laukannen’s Subaru WRC, more recently various Escorts (and even a Ferrari 308) that have been rallied by various drivers (Bjorn Waldegaard, Stig Blomqvist, Gregoire De Mevius, Didier Auriol and Francois Duval) run by Chris Jacob’s team in Belgium. And from 2009, the current 2012 British Historic Champion Julian Reynolds in his MK1 and MK2 Escorts.
