Review: Russell Ingall’s 2014 VF Commodore by Apex

Apex AR40705 – 2014 Holden VF Commodore Russell Ingall THE CAR: This is Russell Ingall’s last full-time V8 Supercar ride, the Repair Management Australia backed Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport entered VF Commodore. Many considered the livery on this thing as not particularly exciting, however I reckon it works ok. Apex has modeled a 2014 ‘season’ version of this car (ie, not from a specific race), which is not what Apex usually do with their contemporary race cars.

Enhancing 3 Bricks – Before & After Pics

These three early Classic Carlectable “bricks” (as they are often referred to due to their basic nature) were not going into my display cabinet until they had been tarted up a bit. These models came with extra decoration that needed to be applied by the collector. The Castrol Commodore and Pirtek Falcon included a sheet of self-adhesive stickers (overly thick, overly stiff, clear vinyl with printed decoration that had to be cut out), while the Wynns car had a sheet of waterslide decals.
