bmd's projects....or attempts should i say!

Post  bmd on Fri Oct 19, 2012 4:22 pm

don't know why the title is plural, this could end as soon as it starts lol!
well i thought i'd do something different and start a thread showing my attempt at converting a 1:18 Solido 205 T16 Evo 2 from Monte 1986, into Ari's 1985 Evo 1 version, also from the Monte.......i know this car is available in 1:43 form but not in the big scale, so having bought a spare one, what the heck!
now this might take months or years, i've no expectations, and i know i could have easily changed to his 00 car used in 86, but that would be too easy/sensible lol!!
anyway, here's the start of the so-called job, who knows what kind of ba__ix this'l end up, but sure its all good craic!!

how she started life.......

rear aerofoil removed....two wee holes to fill/paint

decals removed as required....

front quarter-spats removed, two wee holes to fill/paint ; at this point i found i couldn't separate the top from the bottom, even after removing the two screws underneath, obviously missing something but as i'm on nights tonight thought i'd leave it for now..... Smile

i haven't a clue m8 lol!!
was looking at potential problems i might encounter...
1. have to design and create the smaller roof spoiler for the rear....
2. have to remove half of front airdam/splitter
3. wondering whether to leave decals on rear quarter-panels behind doors, they are very similar in size and shape but to be genuine, they would need removed and new ones printed/applied...
after this.........wee buns m8!! confused

lads, a wee bit of advice please, i have looked at several pix of the 05 car from the monte, and some 1:43 models of the same car...some pix show the roof spoiler as a black solid item attached fully to the top of the hatch, but some other pix show it as more of a low aerofoil, ie attached at each end but raised away from the roof along the centre, plus its white!
any confirmations one way or the other would be appreciated...
cheers

Billy, most of the photos of the '85 Monte car show the rear spoiler to be white with a black leading edge. Not a gap but almost looks to be a rubber infill. There is one photo which shows a black spoiler. Remember the rear bodywork comes off so if Ari had damaged the rear, they would replace it.

There is a great shot of the car at the finish podium in the book from the rally giants series by Graham Robsom - Peugeot 205 T16. Page 56. Further photos on pgs 82 & 83.

If you stuff up, you can always make the car look like the car after his massive accident in Argentina. Laughing
