Audi R8R LM 2001 Winner

27 August 2011 - 05:39 AM

The kit is from Provence Moulage in 1/43 scale. Outstanding kit. A lot of detail for the size. Picked this up at this past year's NNL West after seeing one built and was talked into buying it by a friend. (You know who you are!) Definitely would build more from this company. Paints used were Tamiya's TS-30 and TS-8 airbrushed for the body. And a mix of Tamiya acrylics for the interior. I'm really glad that the kit came with two sets of vacformed headlight covers. I have a hard enough time trying to cut them out on 1/24 scale kits. This is the second time I've built a 1/43 scale and I have just ordered another kit from another company to try. That's if my eyes can hold out trying to fiddle with all the tiny pieces. Feel free to comment.

Picked this kit up at this year's NNL West. The kit is from Wave which is a small Japanese manufacturer. What I can tell you about this kit is that it's a hunk of plastic. Nothing fit properly. As you can see in the photos, the body did not fit well at all to the chassis. Only reason I build this kit is that it is an interesting subject. And I didn't want to buy a resin kit of it. The only upsides to this kit were the decals and the glass fit. Other that that, not really worth building.

Paints used were Tamiya's TS-26 and TS-16, airbrushed. And Tamiya Acrylics for the interior.

I didn't try to fix too many of the mistakes. Just wanted to build something to get out of my non-building slump. Feel free to comment.
