Audi sport Quattro S1 updated 2/2/19


Recommended Posts

I started to work on the glass of the kit and I find it a bit disappointing. There are a ton of pins on the glass and it is a bit thick. No window masks are in the kit?? The frame has a very light engraved frame. Buy some aftermarket masks . I ordered mine from Hiroboy. They give you some photo etched hold downs in the detail kit, but they are molded into the kit glass and would require them being cut off and sanded. I just painted mine. I was afraid of breaking the glass. Started working on the front of the car. I smashed the side marker light and put in a few pieces of it. I want it to look damaged from hitting something along the stage. More to come soon.

Back to work on the Audi the paint masked showed up ( Hiroboy) they worked really well. A must to paint the windows. Body has been put on the chassis, but wait a huge problem... body is way wider than the Chassis and creates a big hole. In the wheel wells. If the car had holes like these it would be full of snow and gravel. I’m fixing it by using left over tin from a printing plate. The perks of being a printer. Super thin metal. If the photos you can see the progress.

This is a pet peeve of mine too!  I've used aluminum printing plate, and also wine bottle foil, to make wheel wells.  But I have to ask, what does the vent leading the rear wheel well serve, I would think brakes.  Looking good!

Back to finish the Audi. I filled in the negative spaces not a 100% , but I will fill in some of the space with snow pack. Now at least you can’t see though the car. Decided to do a broken head light lens. I will further this but scuffing the paint and decals in the area. Rear wing has been added as well as the wipers.

I know the last post is just over 2 years old. 

Love the "weathering"!  Did I miss it in Under Glass?

I was looking at mine, it's next in the cue.  Will study this topic before commencing.
