my next build for a 'RACE' GB somewhere else

Revells Toyota Corolla WRC as driven by Carlos Sainz when he won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1998, he came second in the championship that year







sprue shots








will be interesting as the decal sheet has a lttle bit of damp damage....we shall see



i might just weather this up with a mud wash at the end, just for the fun of it

This kit is up to the usual Tamiya standard, parts fit perfectly - but is a kerbside model and lacks an engine
- but still a great kit. Decals take hours to fit, be warned.
As with most of my models, mine remains unfinished with probably only a couple hours to finish !
Here it is hiding in my 'unfinished' diorama....

Tamiya is first in fit quality and in decals, as the foto shows. If one wasn't good before doing decals in a Tamiya race/rally kit, they either will be or will quit the model! Your work is always fun and interesting, thanx!

Nice kit, a friend of mine build it years ago using some resin part and scratchbuilding few thing, it came out great, it has a lot of potential.

so why produce a really nicely moulded kit (ive actually struggled to find parting lines on the body shell) then do something stupid like this........

for the grilles for the rad and bonnet you are supposed to take the relevant bit from the decal sheet and just glue it in!!..............i think i can do better than that



ive had some stainless steel woven mesh for ages............found in one of those PoundLand shops........was supposed to be a 'saucepan splashguard'.....basically a bit of mesh with a handle! lol a quid got enough to last for years

was tricky cutting it out to the right shape and when the ca is dry i want to give it a coat of primer, then i will know if it looks ok or not. it not i have some nylon mesh left over from a bike kit to try



also got the roll cage put together, just needs a few joints tidying up

Nice start, Paul. I've never understood Revell's cut 'n' stick approach to decals on some kits (I think they look bleedin' awful) and your solution seems ideal. For future reference, how do you rate this kit?

im afraid this has come to a grinding halt!

ive not been doing updates since all ive been doing is painting little bits,......came to add some seat belt decals to the seats and its quite obvious that the decals are in a bad way. could see the decal sheet had a little bit of damp damage but i thought id get away with it. after 10 minutes in hot water the decals still didnt want to come away from the backing paper!.....so there would be no chance with the large decals that go down the side

so this has gone back in the box and i shall find some aftermarket decals at some point, its a nice kit so deserves finishing. Studio27 do a nice set of 2003 Rally di Monza Valentino Rossi decals so shall look out for some of them

That's a pity - it's the decals that really make these models.
