Datsun Sunny 120Y Rally 1975 Vatanen by Arena

Datsun Sunny 120Y 747 Rally 1975 Vatanen
Hand built available ARE846M
This ugly duckling is a significant piece in the history of Ari Vatanen’s career as the 747 Rally in Jamaica was his first event outside Finland. It’s probably also the only model we’ve ever seen of a car that ran in the Caribbean! The pattern was not originally by Arena but the casting quality is as we are used to and there’s a decent level of underbody detail. A simple roll-bar is included for the interior but in the photos in the instructions and other images found online this is not visible. Vatanen’s own account of the event was that they put in fresh oil and brake pads, changed two of the shock absorbers and went to play! Despite hitting a truck, he finished twelfth and there are plenty of photos of the damaged car, including ones with a miss-matched door, for the adventurous among you!

About Arena

Accurate, well detailed resin kits with white metal ancillaries and excellent photo-etched details. Instructions sometimes slightly vague but normally adequate. Castings on some subjects can be a little rough but more recent releases have all been excellent. Due to the amount of etch, they can be quite fiddly to build but in experienced hand make excellent miniatures. Hand built models also available to order. Made in Italy.
