  1. Yes, cutting out fenders from a similarly shaped car may be a solution. In any case, I don't know if this can also be solved by using plastic sheets (styrene) -which I need to buy some time soon- cutting them in the basic flat shape and then molding these into position, sanding the edges and somehow, make the body trim for a smoother look. Anyway, thank you for your help Alan!
  2. Thanks for replying. I would basically like to remove the fender flares, which are pretty wide and then make some work on the front bumper (probably won't take a lot of effort as the rest). The thing is that I will have to fill the space left with something else, since by removing the fender flare the car will have a big mudguard for big wheels. I will leave some pictures from the original car and the scale model for references. In the last one you can appreciate even more the shape of the fender flares in the racing body kit.
  3. Hello. I have been searching the Internet in need of some advice for converting racing model kits into a stock version of the car, since some models come only as "rally" or "DTM" versions and I prefer much more the original one. In this case I have bought the 1/24 Tamiya Alfa Romeo 155 V6 Ti "Jagermeister", which has racing (wider) fenders and side skirts I need to get rid of. The interior comes with rollbar, a simple dashboard and the two bucket seats; I guess there will be quite a lot of work to do there, but not as much as the exterior. The idea is to make a slightly tuned berlina. As I said, I want to narrow the body's with, but do not know really how to in order to avoid ruining the model. I think I may have to cut them with a dremel or something similar, and fill the rest with styrene and putty. Has anyone got ideas for this?. Thank you. https://m.imgur.com/r/ModelCars/i7kJe
