1999 Peugeot 206 WRC.

So, I finally got this kit in the livery I wanted - the white and blue one. It took about 3 years to find it at an affordable price. So, I'm going to do a fair amount of detail on it. All work is based on what few reference pictures of this year of the car I could find.

I've built the 206 before, but I never managed to get the livery I really wanted and I ended up weathering the life out of it because I made too many mistakes.

As ever with my builds, I cranked on the tunes... Tonight I went for some ZZ.

Don't ask me why, but the first thing I did was the dashboard. I really enjoy the dashboards in racing vehicles...

Next up was the underside and wheels... I'm going to foil the exhaust, as the pics I found had heat shields on them.

The wheels are painted white, the lighting doesn't help...

Now, according to reference pics, there should be a kevlar cover and a foot rest on the driver's side. The kit doesn't depict this at all. I gave it a go, I may redo it to improve it but this is what I came up with quickly...

So, that's what I have for now, I do plan on trying to push myself a bit more on detail with this one, only way to learn really.. For now I'm calling it a night and setting it in the spray booth to keep dust away!

Thanks for lookin', all comments and helpful tips and pics are appreciated.

Great job on the dash, Tomo. A lot of nice detail painting there. May I suggest that you hit the tread of your tires with sandpaper or a sanding stick. It will knock off the flash in the middle of the tread.

That's a great kit and I've built it maybe six times, still have a couple in the stash, too!

Good luck with those decals. I swore I'd never, ever build this version again.

D'oh, rookie mistake! God knows how I forgot to notice that. Must do that tomorrow.

Oh boy, I was worried someone would tell me the decals were a pain.. And I was praying for smooth sailing!

Hey Curtis, what is up with the decals? Is it that they would not settle down? I know some of the rally kits' decals would not lay down and then they would end of cracking. Thanks.

I wish you luck with the decals, but if I managed to build the Corolla, you'll make this with no problems. Dash looks great,and I agree, racing dashes are sooooo coooool.

I had a half hour or so to spare today so I tried to make a little bit more progress. I made the curly wire thing for the steering wheel, fuel lines and a couple more wires on the foot rest thing. Unfortunately I don't have many reference pics of where wires and things are in the interior...

When I have time I'll go back and tidy things up a bit, like the dots on the foot rests.
