Volvo 240 street/track

Recommended Posts

I built this Aoshima/Beemax Volvo 240 as a street car. I changed rims to resin steelies and tyres to road tyres. Scratchbuilt muffler. Passenger seat added. Otherwise, almost straight from the box.

Not the first of those Volvo's that I see done as a road car. Looks so much better that the rallye stuff in my eyes. Very well done!

I really like how you built this Volvo. The seat belts look perfect. Also the deep offset painted wheels give it a very aggressive look.

Superb! I've built a couple of the 'estate' cars one as a racer, the original kit and one a mountain bike hauler for the road. I love the 'steel' wheels, where did you get them?!

Steel wheels are from Ukrainian scale car production items.

Good looking model, these look much better in "streetlegal" form than as a racer in my eyes :)

Well executed and cool subject!  I had considered doing this to the BTCC wagon, but chickened out.  Subaru Impreza is another possible civilian conversion.  Thanks for sharing, gives inspiration.
