1/12th Lamborghini Countach

I've pulled my old, kit out of storage, I built it decades ago and rather poorly at that, but it is a great kit with excellent details, that I can improve on now. So has anyone else built, or rebuilt this old kit?  Any suggestions, pictures, tips???

Wow, 1/12, I remember seeing these years ago and wishing I could afford one, I'd forgotten about them.

Can't help with anything but I look forward to seeing it being revived.

Hi.I built this kit many years ago, I think the  kit is great ! Plenty of room for detailing. If I built it today , I probably added much more stuff :-)

Thanks for all the pictures, looks great!

I've got mine mostly apart and staring the restoration with wheels, tires and that gorgeous V12!

Progress pictures soon, cheers!

Okay, here's where I am so far on the engine re-build. Started to wire the alternator and starter but just started. Used a couple of 1/24th decals just for interest, they are nowhere near accurate, but they do look pretty cool. It's more work re-building a glue bomb than starting a new kit, but it sure is fun in 1/12th scale!

Here's the wheels and tires, I got some 1/12th valve stems, and used 3D stickers for the wheel centers, then put chrome rings around them, also peel and stick, then I used the Molotov chrome fine tip pen for the lug nuts followed by Tamiya black panel line wash. The rims themselves are sprayed with Metalizer Aluminum plate. Tires, because they are used, were soaked in dish detergent, then scrubbed with a toothbrush. I think they came out pretty good!

Got a bit more done to the engine, having so much fun  with this one! Slow going though, but that's okay.

The "glass" in my kit is clear blue, not clear, but I think I can make replacements for most of it, the headlights though, well I found that the 1/24th rallye lens from the Subaru kit that I bought for $2 as a parts donor has come to the rescue!
