I didn't know Colin Mc Rae did ride for Toyota... :D

Nice work! This makes this yaris looks sexier to me.

Cute. Try getting the rims that will be on the new Celica for the complete look (hopefully Kyosho WILL release those separately from the ASC).

i was kind of debating with myself, toyota decals on or off, on or off??? ... :D
they were extra decals from another set... so i just went with putting them on... :D

Really nice result, herman. :)
I like it very much, it's nice to see this setup again on a body since I haven't seen it in years in Subaru. ;)
I had a similar idea but I never had the chance to get this body... :(
If I could get one I'd do the Castrol setup. :D

those 2 Vitz's look great! I'd buy them if they were a production ASC

I love them H! They totally look like they could be real 1:1 liveries! :D

thanks kyoshosan... as a matter of fact yes i did use 1/24 scale decals... luckily a nearby hobby shop sells tamiya waterslide decals... i bought a couple and couldn't resist doing a 555 wrc livery on that blue vitz... the ''toyota'' decals came from a different set... :D

you have a great blog by the way, and you're welcome to use my pics on your blog... :D

Hello Herman,

These Vitz (named Yaris here in Europe) are gorgeous!
I wasn't fond of Vitz before but now I want one :D

thanks again for you comments… :D

the stock rims that originally come with the body are kinda blah… with proper looking rims they actually look pretty good... give it a theme (i.e. wrc livery) then they really look pretty cool :D
