Fly 2022 models - coming soon!
#21

A car due to arrive very soon is this very lovely Renault 5 Turbo from the 1980 Tour de Corse...

       

It's a limited edition of 350 - reference E2042 - produced for Barcelona-based retailer SlotPerafita, who you can email for more details at SLOTPERAFITA@GMAIL.COM

Fly have just released a raft of new models, including the Gitanes Renault 5 pictured above and this rather tasty Tour de France Auto Porsche Carrera RS...

       

The Porsche - Ref A2037 - features a unique 3D-printed front bumper and spoiler section, giving the Fly model the shape and poise of the original car...

       

Although the shape is stunning, that yellow should be more of a gold colour - that's the shade seen in all the period images, on diecast models and replica full-size cars. There are a few decal errors, with the Peêt-à-Porter typo jumping out somewhat...

   

A shame, because the car - driven by Guy Fréquelin and Jacques Delaval at the 1976 Tour de France Auto (they crashed and didn't finish) - is a stunning example of 1970s Porsche machinery and very desirable for fans of French motorsport from that era. Here it is in action in 2016...



The A2037 Porsche is available now in the UK from Pendle Slot Racing and Weevils Slot Cars - plus other Fly retailers over the next few days.

Fly has been squeezing as many versions as possible from its existing moulds for years now.
Although I like the R5 Turbos, the wait for the new Subaru Legacy, Ford Sierra Cosworth 4x4 and Datsun 240Z seems like an eternity. Tappingfoot
