WANTED - 1/18 scale BX GTi in red by Otto Models

Post by Kitch »

I'm on the hunt (have been for a while) for this model for some time. Missed one in France last year cos the guy wouldn't post it to the UK.

One of them! I've got the grey Sport, but the red one is the one I really want now.

If anyone spots one for sale anywhere, I'd be really grateful to know about it!

Cheers

Yeah they're showing out of stock now. The grey Sport is pretty easy to find and I just bought the black AX Sport for about £50, and that was direct from France too.

Can't find that red one though! Or a silver Saxo.

I don't really want one. Bastid thing leaks, rattles and breaks more than the BX. But it's just so cheap, so fun and so endearing!

Yeah, the Sports are piss easy to find cheap sadly. It's the first one I got. The GTi used to be common, but has quickly dropped off the radar, annoyingly.
