Testors 1:12 Lamborghini Countach

Recommended Posts

A tale of sadness yet hope. A long time ago, when I just had started to build model cars I bought this kit and...well, trashed it. Now almost 5 years its time to do it right! I found it today in my storage! everything is here except the instructions, first off, stripping the horrible rattle can paint job! and brushed on interior work!

I look forward to this, I've ALWAYS wanted this kit. This is my FAVORITE Lambo ever created.

Not sure about the rear wing? The pics of the built kit make it look like it's mounted too steeply.

Submerse in water and put into freezer. The water should expand in the cracks/voids, and hopefully make light work of separating parts

So after finally getting the already glued pieces to part I sprayed acoat of primer onto the engine, than......tragedy struck, when I was about to get my compressor and airbrush ready, my compressor seemed to make almost no preasure, after messing with it for a bit, I gave up and decided to just buy a new one since that on old Paasche beauty is 30+ years old and been a bit abused, so than on my way to my nearest Michaels ( I know why in the world would you go to michaels) to get some paint, I saw this little Testors airbrush kit, and since I had a coupon to get 50% off anything I decided to try this out! came out to little over 11 dollars! anyways this is what it comes with and for a temporary back up I think it will do the job! I'll let you know how it handles the job!
