Hi guys;

here is one of my ongoing projects that I am very slow at it...
would like to share here some wip photos in order to have your comments and suggestions.

first of all, I couldn't decide the livery yet but I like these two... for both models I don't have the complete decals in hand but can arrange some sponsor logos...

Martini



Bastos



this is the donor model from AA in 1/18 scale



and here below are the wip photos...

first dissembled the model and had to build up the roll cage for it. I was lucky that the E30 DTM cage fits perfectly. the only difference between the E30 and E21 cage was the design.
since the E30 cage was more advanced the only thing I had to do is to cut some parts to have the retro cage look Wink





next step was the quarter exhaust which was used on the Bastos car... so, I decided to replicate it accordingly since I think the quarter exhaust will give the car more aggressive look and sounds better Smile

used some styrene rods to finish the exhaust pipes.





thats how she looks



earlier I have ordered the fenders from Uli Nowak. the ones Uli produced were for the track cars. therefore there is a design difference between the track fenders and the rally fenders.
so, I cut some parts of the fenders and tried to make it rally look.



after

front



rear




I will be using Uli Nowak BBS E50 design 15' wheels for this project to match both of the original cars used.
but couldn't decide the color tho... hope you guys help me with it...



Gold?



Silver?



so far this is the progress in this project.
hope you guys like this new project idea and all your comments and suggestions highly appreciated...

thanks!

Awesome work again Omer,
Love the detail changes you made so far, cutting the floor-pan and sill to get the exhaust to fit!!

As for the livery I would go for Martini, there's something Retro about the styling that fits well with the E21,
The Bastos livery is class but I think I'm use to seeing it on an E30 so in my head it doesn't look as good....
Maybe I'm too young to remember a Bastos E21 lol!

Stunning work again, Omer. Attention to detail is amazing.

Tend to agree with Colin about the livery - the Martini is the one I'd prefer too.

ok, so here I am back again with some progress I had over the weekend...

first primed the car



painted the exhaust into Silver Leaf



painted the wheel centers with Metallic Silver



and here is my BBS wheels...



after the primer coat, I have painted the model into white and also painted the window/door rubbers with black.
still have to paint the side skirts and the front lip with matt black...

just a quick mock up to see how she looks Wink





I still have to paint the doors, and work on the engine since the regular and the rally engine's intakes are different.

so, thats it for the time being...

This is shaping up to be another awesome build Cool
I love the way you just go.... this wasn't right so I had to change it.... and now it's fixed,

Oh and is P2000 the grade of paper you use to rub the model down?

thanks Colin! I hope it will end up nicely since I have many decals missing...

reg the paint, I usually use Tamiya paints which are more for static model use. the reason I choose to paint with Tamiya is that they are more finer compared to regular car paints.
anyway, because I use Tamiya, so I paint them over the original paint. therefore, I first use 1000 grid paper to flat the original paint which is helping the primer to stick better.
and after each of the primer coats, I flat the paint with Tamiya 2000 grid paper. the reason I use Tamiya is because it's in white color and doesn't leave any black/red marks.
I apply a light coat of paint first. and then flat the paint again. flatting the paint each time helps for the orange peel...
after 2-3 coats of paint I apply the clear coat when the paint is still wet. so they have a kind of chemical reaction and this help the final look more even.

hope this helps Wink

it's already been more than 2 months since I last spend time on this model.
I have many projects on the go and they are all in the display which keeps me bothered.
so, I decided to spend some time on the models and try to finish as much as I can.

this, is one of the models I have been working on this week.
I was thinking of the Martini one but due to lack of correct decals, I decided to go with Bastos which I have had some decals in hand ready.
but was a bit challenging since I had to mask tape and paint the car into red... painted the car with red and the roll cage into matt black the other night and applied some decals tonight. I still need to add more decals, but thats it for tonight...

some photos during masking and painting with a quick mock up photo to see how it will look Wink

masking



painted red



decals in process



a quick mock up to see tonights results..

Nice work Omer, that is coming up a treat. With the wheels, as you have gone the Bastos route, will you be repainting the wheel centres black and gold to match the photo you have posted?

well, yes this will be the 2nd BMW Bastos and 3rd with the Escort Cosworth Smile
frankly to say, I am also so surprised how the red turned out so shinny and bright
the wheels are mock up at the moment, need to tight the screws. but I am guessing it still will be a little high

re. the wheels, earlier Juha send me many photos of this car from different rallies. frankly to say, this car nearly changed the front end colors nearly ever rally as well as there are rallies they used grey wheels...

the original wheels were both the gold ones and also some rallies they used grey ones. but the ones on the photo I posted earlier actually are all gold ones, fronts looks like black due to the brake pads dusts and dirt I guess Smile

I think I will leave them grey since I have so many cars with gold wheels.... will see how it turns out Wink
