    You know what.. you're both right.. after a bit of searching I found out that Jackie Chan seems to like trashing Lambos in his movies. In Mr Nice Guy a purple Countach aparently gets crushed by a dump truck and in Rumble in the Bronx he drives a white Countach under a semi trailer and tears the doors off. Still all sounds too painfull to watch.. but I will be renting these flicks to see this blaspemy..

    Hey ZIL you are indeed right. The MPC model kit of the Cannon Ball Run Lamborghini if featured here:


    it's a very small picture down the left hand side of the page not far from the top.. niiiiice. Now I'd love to see a bigger picture of the box art...

    I haven't seen Mr Nice Guy yet but seeing a Lambo being run over by a hovercraft sounds painfull to watch..

    I've sent you an email with the link to some pics of the damaged kit..

    Man that's an awesome idea!!! A cannonball lambo with the front wing.. niiice.. the ladies would certainly be a plus..

    I really love almost all lambos but the Countach versions are by far my fav. Probably because of watching Cannon Ball run a million time when i was younger maybe.. probably because my walls were blanked with countach posters also as a kid. For me it's something about the styling of the car and the time it came out. Not too many real production sports cars can hold the claim of being so far ahead of their time. When Datsun was finished making the 240ZG which Stump is building, Lamborghini began making the Countach.. the working prototype was even built before that in 1972.. That's forward thinking.

    Also I know of the stretched Countach you mentioned.. you can hire it.. only in America huh.. http://www.losangelesexoticlimos.com/lamborghinilimo.php

    Wow man you really know your ****.. Thanks for the info.. very informative.. It's nice to be amongst people who enjoy the history of the cars and the kits as much as I do.. almost as much as building them..

    Thanks man.. and thanks also to everyone else for the good feedback.. and to answer guiwee's question re: the spark plug wires.... I chose red because when I trawled the web for reference material I found a number of countach engines had red leads.. I also wanted to paint them red because I felt the engine needed some contrast between the engine itself and the extra parts surrounding it.

    Here is the reference pic i used when detailing the engine.. it's from this wiki i found: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Lam..._Engine-bay.JPG

    wow.. that's all i got man.. wow.. am very keen to watch you finish it.. true skills are great to see in motion..

    To Stump: yeah mate thanks for the welcome.. I'll definitely be going to QMHE again and would be happy to catch up with you there.. I've been a couple of times but one day I might actually display some of my models there.. I've certainly built a few..

    To KUZTOMMODELS88: yeah I'd be open to the idea of parting with the damaged 1:16 lambo.. it's just the roof that has warped inwards. In fact to the creative builder they could make a convertible out of it or set it up in an accident diorama on it's roof... which would be sacrilege of course but what did you have in mind??

    Thanks guys.. Yeah it came together pretty well no real problems or dramas. The suspension was the hardest part on this model for me. The detail is just insane.. But I'm happy with the end results. The suspension and all the doors work perfectly. I tried to build this same model when I was a kid and completely failed. I think the only tips I got for building this one is plenty of patience..

    I also bought the 1:16 Lambo Quattrovalvole kit from Fujimi of ebay as well. It's the one that allows you to build the 88 or 86 version. But when I opened the box the roof of the car was squashed down, obvoiusly from years of storage with something heavy sitting on top of the box. Unfortunitely I can't build it because the body is screwed. It's basically a perfect model kit without the body. A shame because now that I've finished the big one I would love to go on and build the 1:16 now..

    and to ThatOneEmoKid... nup.. ya can't have it....

    DOYUSHA 1/12 Lamborghini Countach
    Hey guys.. Here's a few pics of my recently completed Lamborghini Countach LP500s from DOYUSHA. This is the rare Walter Wolf version and I think is hasn't been made for about 20 years. I've uploaded the whole build history in photograph form to my blog if anyone is interested. http://karel.omnieffect.com/?page_id=2

    But for now here's are a couple of random photos..
