  1. Thank you Terry, glad you like it!
  2. Thank you JC! Thank you Ricky for the kind of words!
  3. I was able to find different photos of the car, thanks to a friend of mine. Thank you Mike! I think the movement factor on a rally car is very important. Thank you Chris!
  4. I just finsh this model. I grew up following rally races, some I was lucky enough to be part of it. I have a soft spot for Lancia rally cars, above all the Gruop B. I was able to be a co pilot on few of them, and hear crazy stories from drivers. Even when tose cars are stand still, they seems go fast. The engine noise... Every thing on them were pushed to teh limit. When I start this kit, I wanted to capture the motion and power of a Group B rallye car. I saw a picture of this Lancia flying with the front end damaged, perfect picture for what I had in mind. This 037 was from the Jolly Club team. The driver was Biasion and co pilot Siviero. It finishe the Rallye Sanremo in 3rd place. The kit I used is Hasegawa, beautiful kit and goes together pretty well. I had to modify the fron frame/chassis of the car. I also used the photo etch details also from Hasegawa. The kit came with tarmac tires, I needed gravel tires. My brother design the gravel tires, and a friend of mine 3D print them.
  5. Great show, with tons of great models, some also ver very unique. Really enjoyed to see all the photos. Good inspiration for future builds! Congratulations to all the winners. I hope one day to attent this show in person!
  6. I prefer sand paper. More choices on the grid to simulate any asphalt, and works on any scale.
  7. Welcome back! Building models is a great hobby. Above all for your kids. They can learn a lot of things that can be useful when they grow up.
  8. 1/8 scale. There is a opening for the hood hinges, the real car does not have this opening.
  9. That's a classic businnes on the front and party on the back...
  10. Pretty cool fun car to drive! A friend had one and it is a lot of fun! Never saw this kit buid. Probably because of the lac of detail, or the year of the model. A friend built one years ago using this kit and a variety of parts from die case model.
  11. I kind of like it, but a the same time not. Maybe because of the two tone paint.
  12. Very nice job! I just saw your wip. Now I know why not a lot of people build it! The Boomerang too loos great!
  13. I used cardstock a loto when I build models. It is a great material anche easy to find around the house. I will not use white glue, because is water based, this mean that it will take a lot of time to dry, and also that can bend or deform what you are building. I usually use superglue or zap glue. About sanding, you can do it, but you need to remember that is cardstock, so it start to have a different texture as soon as you sand it. I usually use a 600 sand paper. THe cool thing is that you can use also putty on it. I use the Bondo brand. Another thing to keep in mind if you build large parts is that you need to build some kind of support, frame or reinforcment. Like any other material.
  14. That's pretty cool! Great bond for sure! Your daughter has a good teacher, and for sure she will be build model cars, but also appreciate the 1:1 more and more. Love the color combo she pichked, and the roof faint job is amazing!
  15. Year and years ago I was able to visit the factory...
  16. Cars and truck in general were right hand drive back then. I think they started with horses and buggy. The driver stop on the right side of the road and open the dor for let the people go out of the carriage. The chaffeur on cars did the same. On truck they said that having the steering wheels on the right allowedd the driver to see better the edge of the road, and it was easy to follow.
  17. Pretty cool small car! A friend of a friend invited us to see his car collection, many years ago. This gentleman had around 30 classic cars, all restored like new. One of this was the car in the picture. Pretty cool small car! Although I think from stock they have the front bumper.
