thought have a crack at this

had it in the stash for a while but had problems getting the right paint, i dislike tamiya paint but found i can mix 2 Mr Hobby colours to get the right shade

why mould it in roughly the right colour? its got flow lines all over it so its not as if you could just put a coat of clear over it! cant wait to prime it all, just looks horrible lol

im going to use some seats with pe seat belts which i did for a Corolla a while back which ended up on the shelf of doom as i damaged the body shell

Hi Paul
Nice choice and with it being Tamiya should fit well. One good thing about rally cars is no chrome issues.

I really enjoyed building this kit until it came to the decals which crumbled and fell apart while fitting :tired:

was hoping to get a lot done today, spent most of it sorting the parts out in to piles ready for painting..........did a little bit of assembling and a light priming to show up any mould lines i need to get rid of.....not sure if i will use the light pod yet

interior is done

decided to add some pe seat belts thanks to eduard........................the real cars had red Sabelt 5 point but all i had was red Sparco 4 points so gone with them

i have a love/hate relationship with pe seatbelts, i find i have to concentrate to the point of headaches but at the same time i can just switch off and focus on them

Looking good. Seat belts have come out really well and make the interior really pop.

when the car is travelling between stages its on normal roads, have to stick to traffic law with regards speed etc...........no need to wear a helmet so need somewhere to put it,......these days they are not cheap, especially with all the communications set up.......you wouldnt want it rolling round in the back, get to the next stages start line and find out you have broken the mic or in built speakers, cos then you are in the brown smelly stuff, so they fit these foam type boxes to put the lids in

Looking good Paul. Tamiya decals are never up to the quality of the rest of the kit to me.....
