Post  bmd on Sun Sep 21, 2014 10:31 pm

right, my eyesight aint what it used to be, in the couple of pix i have of billy stratos, 76 galway, etc, the wheels are so dirty i cant make out if theyre the usual gold colour or a brighter yellowish? anyone enlighten me, or did he use several sets of differing colours as often happens?
cheers lads...

My guess would be mostly 1977 Gold wheels or 1978 Yellow wheels (but sometimes both). He was is an Escort in '76! (xpack)

I'm fairly sure his first event in the Stratos was the '76 Ulster and I'm certain he won both Galway and the Circuit in '76 in the ex. Roger Clark monte xpack Escort KHK 983N.

I think my avatar wheels are a little too yellow!

If your pics have No. 1 on the door and Henley Forklift on front they're from 1977 and more than likely gold wheels. If they have No. 5 on the door they're from 1978 and more than likely yellow wheels. As you say, though, Galway tends to have miserable road contitions and pretty dirty wheels so a dirty mustard would give a more  authentic look!! (only joking)

Definately the 78 Galway rally.

Heres what I could get from the DVD. Since its old footage is hard to get a proper still but might help someway.

Car ran with a mix of wheels types and colours: 76 seems to be Gold Minilites mainly and 77/78 is a mix of yellow Chromodoras and Gold Minilites. I have seen pics with gold Miniltes on the front and Yellow Chromodoras on the rear.

Are you doing the Galway car in 1/18 or 1/43. I have some artwork done up for a 1/18 and the rally plates are very different to what Arena put out.

That appears to be a regular problem with their stuff. I have a batch of Pirelli Statos decals, and they are either incomplete or wrong.

I built Tony Carello's Stratos from the 1978 Ypres 24 Hours with their decals, using a cheap partwork model as a base. He was seeded #4, but my decals say #1 (which is still visible on the bonnet plate). The text below the number is wrong, and the decal itself is too wide. There was a sticker where the red event plate is sitting, there's no decal for it, but it was removed during the rally so I could just cover it with a red decal. IIRC the rear spoiler is wrong too, I don't have the pics to check that, with just Pirelli instead of Lancia Pirelli, but again, no decals included, and I'm not sure about the second event actually plate being on the decal sheet.

I don't know how well they are documented on Italian events, but their research for foreign rallies is something they need to have a look at.

This is my model (car 4) Arena's own version (car 1) and the actual car.

I have several pics of the 77 car and am using a Kyosho as a base. The decals are pretty straight forward compared to the 78 car with the blue pinstripes. The 77 car did not have have the flared arches on the rear.

Rally plate is wrong-Henley Forklift colour should be purple and missing some text. Don't think the blue stripes are there either.  Don't forget the Henley Forklift logo on the boot and there is a full sized rally plate on the roof too
