didcos's projects

Post  didcos on Mon Feb 27, 2012 10:50 pm

Hi guys, I'm starting this topic where I left it on the old forum.

Finished the Beguin Escort:








Painted the black windows surrounding on Snijers impreza:



The two models are heavily clear-coated over the decals so they should last a while.

I also started repairing an old vitesse 306 Maxi. Stripped most of the decals and filled the 2 gas intakes on the sides with putty because the decals over them always get damaged in those areas. Here's how it look at the moment:

Here's the Celica GT-Four of Andrea Aghini, winner of the Rallye du Valais 1997. Base car is Minichamps and decals racing43.





I printed some Marlboro and Camel decals to make this one a little more real:

thanks!

I used a Castrol TTE celica. Don't remember which one. I think minichamps relased 2 versionsof the St205, one of which didn't really exist (Auriol was still running the ST185 in '94 while kankkunen was already driving the 205).

I finally finished the Thiry Condroz Impreza. It started as an official blue car.
I'm really pissed with myself because I lost the 2 decals with the driver/codriver names that do on the rear windows.

Finished the Auriol Escort. The wheels are not the correct ones but they will do until I find some Cromodora.

can you send me a picture? If they are racing43, I need the big 18'' ones (same as Escort Kit Car "Budget"), not the small 16'' (usually seen on impreza Grp.a, 5 nuts).
