Cool cars! I had a friend that was a mechanic on these cars. I saw Nannini, Larini cars so mani times, during the DTM races. Impressive cars! A fun fact, is that under the body, drivetrain etc, is from the Lancia Delta. :)

Excellent work so far!

 

I love these kits. Have a stack of them in the stash, and plan to eventually build all of the liveries I've found for these. I think I'm up to 6.

Cool! The only other one I know of is the Jaeggermeister. What are the others?

I didnt know that. I have a Lancia Delta to build with an engine bay from Ukraine Models. Did you check out the 1/12 Lancia Delta coming from Italeri ?

Gorgeous job on all that CF and the seatbelts and other interior details. Can't wait to see it finished in the Martini livery..its my favorite.  I have the Dekra version of this car built but don't have the Martini and this may be the push for me to re-visit this kit. Thanks for the WIP.

Doug...looks real good. Getting those Martini stripes on the hood without wrinkles is a real challenge. I thought I didn't have this livery in my collection but I should have checked before I ordered one. Yep...its there. So I am going to do the red Martini version and ordered the CF and decals (which cost more than the kit BTW) I will use your WIP as a guide so I appreciate your post and the effort you put into it.

Hey Rich, thanks for the comments. If you end up building the same model I did, the trick is that you really have to put all the hood and side decals on in one sitting. The decals for the hood overlap - of course they don't tell you HOW they overlap, you just have to figure it out. Then the side decals have to line up. So block off the time, and breath deep. (But don't hyperventilate). In my kit, there was one red decal that wasn't called out in the instructions, and I used it as a doner to patch the blocks of red color if they tore during the setting process. Lucky break there. Attached are a couple of shots of the fenders. I went as far as I could without risking having them tear. 

Where did you get the decals you are using for your version of the Alfa?

Doug....I cheated when I did mine.  I  airbrushed the red on then cut the dk blue/lt blue stripe away and applied them as seperate decals. It also meant matching the red carefully. I have had to do this for many of my other Martini variations so it seemed to be the logical choice.  I liked the way mine turned out. The decals for the all red version are Studio 27. 
They also made the carbon fibre set which I ordered too. I got them off 'Ebay from a seller I know personally in Belgium. He's not cheap but usually has what I want.
