The model col­lec­tion

Australian Muscle Car - - Moffat's Keepsakes -

Al­lan Mof­fat proudly shows off the 1:18 1977 Bathurst-win­ning Fal­con XC from his sub­stan­tial per­sonal model race car col­lec­tion. While Mof­fat’s col­lec­tion does not re­flect ev­ery sin­gle car he raced across his long ca­reer, it goes close – it is al­most cer­tainly the most com­pre­hen­sive col­lec­tion of Al­lan Mof­fat race car mod­els in ex­is­tence (capped off with a few of son James Mof­fat’s Su­per­cars as well). In ad­di­tion to the (ex­ten­sive) se­lec­tion of com­mer­cially avail­able mod­els, Mof­fat’s col­lec­tion boasts a range of be­spoke mod­els painstak­ingly crafted by Al­lan’s cus­tom model maker (or ‘plas­tic sur­geon’, as Al­lan af­fec­tion­ately refers to him), Ge­off Wood. Among the one-off Ge­off Wood mod­els you see here are the Coca-Cola Es­cort FVA, Boss Mus­tang in Union Travel liv­ery, Trans-Am Mer­cury Cougar, Fal­con XW ‘Su­per Fal­con’ Im­proved Pro­duc­tion racer, and the num­ber 5 Mazda RX7 – Mof­fat’s orig­i­nal 1981 RX7 in the trim in which Mof­fat raced it in the Guia 200 Group 5 sportscar race at Ma­cau that year.
