The WRC Fabia is made by Solido. Not exceptional quality but a nice model to have. I've seen it at the Skoda showroom. I have seen a 1:18 Laura on ebay. Just search for 1:18 Skoda Octavia and you'll find it.

Talking My Modded Lancer Evo 8*.... ;-)

I basically own to Lancer Evos... an EVO VII and an EVO VIII...

While my Evo VII had a WRC replica look.... the Evo 8 look with stock exteriors felt quite dull... So I decided to put on some visual appeal....

Please excuse me for poor photo quality

Thus, the headlamps got eyelids treatment and a Mitsubishi sticker on the windshield...


The front doors got Michelin, HKS and Fidanza stickers...


Sparco mudflaps and Ralliart Decal on the rear windhield



Last but not the least... neon lights below the front grille...


* Oops, I forgot to tell that it's a 1:36 scale model..

Nice replica you have got there....but it need good pics from a good camera even a point and shoot one will work...since you have taken the pics from a camera phone it is not doing justice to the car looks...ok try take the car pics in sunlight it would yield better results...try it...

Thanks for the info AC 427 and Dippy. I found the Octavia on Ebay but they only deliver locally according to the shipping info.

@planet_rocker and low_bass_maker.

Thanks a lot...

Will try to post better pictures.......

The neons are basically LEDs placed below the grille... They are not visible properly unless there is complete darkness.....

So, it'd be a bit tough to get better neon-lit pics.

I made the stickers myself.......

All u need is a PC with internet, a colour printer, scissors, paper, some glue and a lot of patience...

Voila, it's that easy!
