I thought I would share my build process of the Revell of Germany Lancia Stratos WRC kit. I am fairly certain this is a reboxed Hasegawa kit. When I searched for reviews of this kit I found one common theme; good luck getting the body over the chassis. It is true, but more on that later. This kit has been in my stash for years and to be honest I'm not sure what caused my to pull it out and build it. I guess it was the challenge of doing all of those decals! This is a box stock build. I did not want to add any aftermarket parts or do any scratch building. The model is already finished but I wanted to share with all of you what I did and what I went through to get her completed. Lets look at the kit. Here is what I started with. The decal sheet. It is a big one! Why do model companies run the attachment point right into the part?!?! This took a little bit of clean up! These are the rear fender flares. Test fitting of the rear spoiler showed that there was a sizable gap. I added and shaped a shim to close the gap. I attached the rear fender flares and rear spoiler. I cleaned up the parts. I had to add some filler to dimples on the rear spoiler.
open the box on this old airfix kit just yesterday . but there was nearly nothing to it so its already done .. i painted it red and only added a few of the stickers . like if a privateer had owned it istead of a big team . anyway the stratos has always looked good to me and now i have one for the shelf . the wheels are from a Ferrari F40 painted yellow and the rears flipped but the center nut has been reglued to the back now front . well here it is . thats it hope you guys like it . its my second attempt with the airbrush and it turned out pretty good
Hello from Morristown NJ I always liked the Lancia Stratos and picked up a Hasegawa kit. But, it's curbside and I wanted to add an engine. First thing I did was to scribe and cut open the hatch Then I transplanted a Ferrari engine from a Fujima Dino kit - closest thing I could think of for a proper engine for the Stratos Next, added some seatbelts Really like the Alitalia livery on the car And here's the completed car with some Italian cousins, Fiat 131's
