Well, its been a while since I have posted any builds, but on the late I have been busy with one of my all time favourite cars, the indomitable Lancia Stratos!! Any way, here is some pics of my WIP.
The decals are surprisingly of great quality, and react well with micro set and micro sol. Many a time in the past have I had a swearing match with Tamiya Moto GP decals which were vastly inferior to this lot.
Anyway, thanks for looking.

One of my faves too ! Fantastic start gavin , the decals look great . A Stratos looks good in anything but the classic Alitalia scheme is just so iconic , i love it . Cheers tony

Ah! The memories come flooding back. Looks like you are off to a great start. Is this the one Munari drove??

Well, the work continues!

I have completed the base, here are some images of it in progress.

Now that the base is about done with the mud effect drying, I turned my attention to the car.

Well I hope to not over do it.

Thanks for looking!:thumb2:
