    Lancia 037
    Hi. This Lancia 037 from Hasegawa was a great kit. Just difficult enough. I cut away the body to show the engine and added some Studio 27 detail parts. Pretty good fit for this model. If you want to see how the build progressed you can see it here  http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/121356-lancia-037/

    That's true. Ted. I do think the camera is a positive tool. It's like a reality check. And I'm not into contests or anything like that. Just into getting it right.

    Making some more progress here. This kit is highly recommended - I added photo etched bits from Studio 27. Next up is to build a couple of missing gas tanks and get them installed.

    Ok. Little more progress. I cleaned up the engine a little and added a heat deflector for the exhaust (which conveniently covered up a gap) and various oil and gas lines following reference pictures as best I could. Also reversed the pedals so the gas is on the right (Davoski!). Think I need to add the gas tank as a final touch there.

    Wow, that's a great background. I've got a 2011 EvoX and before that the first VW R32 model that came to the US.  I'm not a rally competitor nor an expert in any way there but I've had the Evo on the track. Building these models lets me stay involved at least on that level.

    OMG Davoski. I think you're right! Of course I could say that it's an insane car, it's Italian AND the model is built in Japan. But I still think you're right. Nice catch LOL.

    Oops. And now I see part of the exhaust that needs fixing

    Lancia 037
    Hi. I'm starting work on a Lancia 037, by Hasegawa. Actually, a pretty cool kit with engine detail. I'm working my way through the interior and the engine bay. Have some more pieces to add. And i have to say that everytime I take photos of work in progress I see flaws, like the seam on a transmission or exhaust. Wonder why I don't see it while I'm building. Could it be my fading eyesight! At any rate, these photos kind of keep you honest in terms of spotting flaws.

    Hey JC. I don't have any shots of the engine during the build. Maybe I'll try and get some other angles over the weekend.

    Hey Dale - thanks for the inspiration on your build from 2012 (I think)!

    Dome Zero
    Hi. Just finished the Dome Zero racer by Fujimi. Thanks to MCM Ohana Dale Beaver who posted some pictures way back and served as an inspiration for some of the detail work. A difficult build - but they all seem difficult lately!
