Don't forget to drop the front frame horns for the bumper mounts as well or your bumper will be "all up in your grille". :lol: In fact, one may even have to drop from behind the radiator support forward to keep the radiator under the hood...on most real cars.

BTW, excellent progress there...love bubbletops


Thanks for the heads up. Haven't gotten to mounting the bumper yet.

In Topic: Save your decals

Any good tutorials on this subject out there?

Just picked up a kit from 1992 and he decals are shot (which is one of the reasons I got such a deal :D )

Can I simply scan the sheet I've got, a then print out a new set?

Its for a classic rally car so I was thinking of changing the name of the driver and co driver while i was at it. B)

Very cool stuff. Can you post any pics?


... I either Spray them with the ALCAD CHROME SYSTEM, or I send them to be Chromed.


Where do you send them out to?

thanks for the info.

I found two Rally Cars "on sale" here in taipei because they're "so old".

Hasegawa Lancia Super Delta 1992:

This was one of the cars you could choose to play with in possibly my favorite video game ever, Sega Rally Championship (1993)

And I bought this Tamiya 2001 Subaru Impreza WRC because I just like these "bug eyed" subarus
