I will put my minimodels in this thread (scale about 1: 100)
This toy car is the first in a series Dakar miniboxes. FDS released a series of these legendary cars as an Advent calendar before Christmas, so maybe I'll build a few more ...

PEUGEOT 205 TURBO 16 DAKAR

A few words about the original:
This is Ari Vatanen's car for the Paris-Dakar race in 1987. The car he used was a modified version of the Group B - 205 Peugeot 205 T16 monster. The legendary Paris-Dakar won with this car.

My edits:
I adjusted the mounting of the wheel on the roof and a few more details, I dusted the car a little and made a simple pad.

Thanks, I don't glue cars from a car show, those cars get a lot of work done at the races, so I think they look better that way. ;)

LADA SAMARA T3 DAKAR

Scale : 1:100
Author : FDS model
Source : www.minimodel.sk (FE4060-free model)

A few words about the original:

In 1990, Lada Poch fielded three Samara specials at the Dakar Rally (the car used a Porsche engine), in which Jacky Ickx (with co-driver Christian Tarin), Patrick Tambay (with Dominique Lemoyne) and Jérome Riviére (with Daniel Jacquemard) sat. The most successful was Ickx, who finished the race in a great seventh place. He even won one speed test! Riviere was eleventh, while Tambay had to withdraw after the first day due to a seized engine. Starting number 213 is J.Icx's car.

My edits:

I modified the bumpers, fenders and a few other things, dusted the car a little and made a simple pad. A few photos:

...somehow I'm not in the mood and I don't have much time after working on complex models, so I'm gluing at least these micro-models... there can be around 50 cars from Dakar... as long as I enjoy it, I'll alternate it with my favorites chapels and maybe sometimes I'll add something more complicated...;)

LAMBORGHINI LM002

Scale : 1:100
Author : FDS model
Source : www.minimodel.sk (FE4061-free model)

A few words about the original:

In 1988 the Swiss World LM Racing Team entered a bright red LAMBORGHINI LM002 in the Paris Dakar (drivers JO.COUCET - M.KERZEN) and although some sources say that it had to withdraw from the race, other sources say that this car with the starting number 519 finished 10th in the Marathon category, which was not bad at all for a private team...

My edits:
I have added more details here. The most laborious was the structure around the body, on which there is a rope that holds the spare wheels, others are: modified front mask, widened fenders, added details on the roof and a few more details, I dusted the car a little and made a simple pad.
