Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Skoda Fabia R5 7th Monte 2017 Mikkelsen With VW’s withdrawal from the WRC at the end of the 2016 season, Andreas Mikkelsen found himself without a top-class WRC drive at the beginning of 2017. He started the Monte Carlo rally in a Skoda, running in the WRC2 category and showed that talent will out, with a class win and impressive seventh overall. This event marked the 40th anniversary of Skoda’s first Monte Carlo class win and the cars were decorated as a homage to the original 130Rs. This makes for a bright looking model with vivid blue, red and orange stripes standing out from a white base colour. Ixo’s Fabia is well proportioned and the overall standard of finish is very good, with the small detailing on wipers and spoilers being particularly fine.
Well finished die-casts of varying levels of accuracy. Some very good, others (mostly Ferraris) not. Made in China
