The automotive creations that come from RUF Automobile are certainly rarities within the automotive marketplace. Due to their scarcity, each time I see one, my jaw just drops. While I may not be able to add one to my garage at the moment, I can still pick up this wonderful creation from Ritter Goods.
Recently announced is this highly detailed 1/43 scale 1987 RUF CTR ‘Yellowbird’ resin model that was designed in Andrew Ritter’s signature style. Officially licensed by RUF Automobile, this new creation is the first car from the Ritter Goods Archives, a new line that consists of highly-detailed 1/43 resin models.
While the model may be small, it certainly does not lack in detail. The exterior of this model sports fully-detailed tires and wheels, brake calipers with drilled rotors, exhaust, turbo waste gates, engine, suspension, and more. Then, when you look inside, one will find a fully replicated interior replete with the roll cage, gauge cluster, shifter, and steering wheel—all accurately modeled on the original RUF Yellowbird.
Each example of the Yellowbird model comes encased in a crystal-clear display case, complemented by a stand and a unique Ritter Goods Archives metal plaque. These display cases, wrapped in protective plastic, arrive in a captivating Ritter Goods Archives graphic sleeve, ensuring your model stays pristine while also making a statement.
