  1. Hi Folks, Pascal, thank you sir! Really enjoy you posting all your MFH builds. Great stuff Thanks for clarifying that James:) Andy, That is a cool kit. Yeah, it does look like more what JC is building. Some progress... Attaching the suspension parts,twin fuel tanks, oil tank, oil breather tank, fuel pump and electrics board... Bill (Ace-GarageGuy) many moons ago had posted this handy diagram for detailing a dry sump oil system. Exactly what is needed for this car.. Some pics of it all going together .... I have mentioned this earlier but a neat thing in the design of the 3D kit is the way you can assemble all the main components to check things out then take it all back apart for detailing. Only the fuel tanks and the transaxle are glued in so far. Thanks for looking in, Randy
  2. Beautiful work Pascal !!! I think you have every part of the real car in this model:) Randy
  3. Interiors look great Pierre! Extra attention to the details really paid off. Randy
  4. Hello Matija, I do have all your goodies. I think I still have your address from our trade a few years ago. Randy
  5. Hi Folks, A very big thank you to all that took the time to comment!!!!!! Some progress on the motor... next up replicating the duel water manifolds. ref. pics.. Going to raid the train detail parts box again for some white metal. This material is great for shaping the taper and being able to have everything as one piece. Downside is you only get one shot at any bends. making up the connecting sleeves... Starting to shape the engine block... Thanks for looking in, Randy
  6. Hello Matija, If Lee can not help I have these parts to send you. Randy
  7. John, Thank you! No matter the gains in technology we model builders are still cleaning up parts:) Pierre, Thank you my friend. Thanks Trevor ! A little more engine work... Shaping some plastic rivets to resemble the rather unique spark plug boots Working on plumbing and wiring.. That is all for now. Thanks for looking in! Randy
  8. Not familiar with that boxing Andy but I think you could if it is Hasegawa?? Some 1:1 pics for reference.... Some more progress, the crazy belt system to run all the accessories is made up of 4 different pieces... Thanks for looking in! Randy
  9. Thanks for those links Pascal ! Sometimes Hasegawa does strange things with their kits. This kit has a separate front clip but there is no interior detail in the front end. They have provided a motor in this boxing but the rear clip is not separate???? Cut loose the rear body and then followed the transkit instructions for removing chassis plastic to make way for the tube subframes front and rear. Basically using the kit for the monocoque tub to hang stuff off of. Rear section.... Working on the motor. As JC mentioned in his Lancia build, it is amazing the different cars that Lancia stuffed the little 4 cylinder into. In this, the 037 EVO2 , Abarth came up 325 hp out of 125 c.i. using Bosch fuel injection and a Volumex supercharger. The design of the 3D printed parts allows for very robust attachment points for the different pieces. This allows mock ups with no glue. Adding some banjo fuel fittings from RB Motion, fuel lines from MFH.
  10. The front end pieces are awesome John!!! Beautiful use of the AK paints. Love the Wheels and gauges. Randy
  11. Thanks JC, Have always really liked the Lancia Rally cars from the 70s,80's and early 90''s. The Stratos, this 037 and the Delta S4. Hey Pierre, Thank you... but no promises. Should go faster as I am not scratch building everything:) Hey Steve, thanks for commenting and I hear you on the tires. JC pointed out a good supplier, www.renaissance-model.com is another one. Pasquale, GPModeling.com , has started a line. pics of a gravel set and snow set from the French guys... A pic from the GPModeling site......
  12. Hello Francis, Very happy for you that you have finished this masterpiece, but very sad that the journey has ended. Always went to your build thread to become inspired!!! You really show with your builds what is possible in scale model building if you have patience and enormous amounts of skill!!!! Look forward to your next project Sir. Randy
  13. This is what the transkits look like installed on the Hasegawa car. Pic is from GPModeling.... The 3D printed parts require some patience to remove all the supports. Good set of low profile nippers come in handy:) I spent some extra time on all the tube sections to knock down the layer lines then primed with Duplicolor scratch fill primer. Followed up with Tamiya Fine primer. Have to say this is some really fine detail ...... That is all for now, thanks for looking in. Randy
  14. Hi Folks, Hasegawa has released a number of different boxings of the 037 car over the years. They were all the same but with decals of specific races. All curbside. I then found ( thanks to Niteowl here) that they released a boxing that contained a motor. I found one and it disappeared into the stash never to be seen till a month ago. Late nite surfing the net led to rumors of a Italian model shop, GPModeling, 3D printing a transkit designed by Claudio de Bellis for the entire rear compartment. Found it, found that they also did a kit for the front end. Looked wonderful. So impressed that I arranged to become the retail outlet North America for these transkits. Also picked up a small pe set from Hobby Design. Here is what we have to work with... The extra goodies... Engine set..... Frontend set............. more to come..
  15. You know my friend, if you would quit working on your handicap all summer we could see some progress here:) Love this build. Will be posting up a family member(037) here soon. Randy
  16. Hi Paul, You are doing a great job on a favorite car of mine. Look forward to following your progress. Randy
  17. Hello Pascal, Wonderful builds from you Sir!!! Love the extra detail work. But.....you really need to get back on the big Ferrari 288 motor:) Randy
  18. Great to see one of these being built Matt. Really nice body work there! Randy
  19. Hey Pierre, Wonderful duel builds happening here!!! Your results with brush painting your bodies is just superb. Randy
  20. This is one awesome build Chris!!! The motor and chassis looks great. Really nice carbon decal work. Randy
  21. Always fun to catch up on your build my friend. That motor is just spectacular!!! Love the different shades and tones you achieved thru machining different metals. You continue to post stuff that I keep coming back to so I can be impressed all over again. Randy
  22. Good to see you at the bench and working hard my friend!!! Randy
