LATEST ADDITION! GINAF X2222 [WSI 1:50]

18 January 2021

Already some time ago I received this scale model and last weekend I finally found the time to photograph this new addition in my collection:

  • GINAF X2222 4x4 Dakar Race Truck "505" #01-1007

The GINAF X2222 4x4 Dakar racetruck from Team Wuf van Ginkel in the Rally 2011 with start number 505 replica is made in 1:50th scale by WSI Collectibles. Not only sponsored by PON (Dutch dealer from Caterpillar machinery) but also poweredby a Caterpillar C18 Acert engine providing nearly 1000 PK.

My first impression: The GINAF X2222 is very detailed die cast scale model. No opening doors but chassis and body are definitely spot on copied from the 1:1th and therfore a very welcome addition to my PoweredbyCAT series.

I have add the complete review with more pictures from the model, machine in 1:1 and technical background information in the category PoweredbyCAT
