Audi A4 DTM

I started this in November of 2017 so I figured I’d better finish it before I start any new kits. So far it has been going together just fine and the only incident was yesterday when I dropped the hood on the carpet after the final coat of red. Into the alcohol bath it went and I repainted it this morning. I love all the crazy aero stuff on these cars.

Great car... Off to a good start. I wish Revell did more of these. I did one and it was fun to build. Hobby design makes a detail kit for these cars. Hood looks good.

The rear aero is so crazy, and the instructions aren’t as clear as I’d have liked. I’m making it work though.

Me too. I have two Mercs, a BMW, and this. I’d love to see them make some new ones; I’d be all over them...not that I need more kits but...

Hi Will, this is looking real good. I must admit I'm not a fan of the "modern" DTM era (years 2000 and on - featuring simplified suspension and aero technology compared to the expensive 90's "hi-tech monsters", yet having 4-liter V8 engines that practically had nothing to do with the road cars - which is but one of the basic ideas of the DTM!). But I have this kit too as the livery says "Danke Tom" (thanks Tom) in German, as a farewell gesture to Audi's long term driver Tom Kristensen (the world's most successful Le Mans driver so far). My son's name is Tom too, so I'd like to build this kit for him one day... Anyway, looking forward to see you finish this one!

They (ROG) actually did quite a lot of these kits when they had the licence back then. They did Audis, BMW's, Mercs, and Opels in a lot of liveries. Check it out here: https://www.scalemates.com/search.php?fkSECTION[]=All&q=revell+dtm*#

A few more progress pics. It’s a crazy build but I’m totally in love with the look/style.

Spent what felt like the whole day and only have a little to show for it. Oh well. Should be able to wrap this by next weekend and then on to the next started-but-not-done debacle.
