Tonight's ingredients are...

- Old and not-so-old decal sheets
- Water
- Knives
- Loctite
- DLE 90

And these:

Juha's projects 120318095951521809

The first one finished was the 6R4 of Jimmy McRae on the 1986 Scottish Rally. The decals by Rallymodels were excellent. That hardest bit was repairing the front spoiler which had been knocked off by the previous owner. That's where the Loctite came in. It got back into place, eventually, but not before I succeeded in glueing my fingers together. That's when I needed the knives. clown

Next up, the first of the white 6R4's. It does look good with gravel wheels. Cool

But the aim was to make a Clarion 6R4 with Starter decals...

The positive side of things: the decals didn't break (yet).
The negative side: most of them don't stick unless you drown them in Microsol.

I'm leaving it for a few days, the stripes don't look easy, and concentrate on making a 33 Export Tour de Corse version.

I just buy all the reasonably priced base models.

Some of the models on the group shot are being converted. The top row consist of 8 white base models (one is now a Clarion car, still got another 7 elsewhere) and 3 complete Altaya Rothmans models.

The group on the right is a set of dismantled Rothmans models (some were bought for spares from Mark), Altaya 33 Export (the one shown above), the grey one is a stripped LHD tarmac shell (car is complete), the white one is a stripped Altaya Rothmans car, and at the bottom 3 Altaya Computervision shells surrounding the 86 Scottish car before its conversion.

The boxed models are 2 Monte-Carlo models (one is being converted), 85 RAC, 86 1000 Lakes (with correct wheels), a tarmac spec car with correct Rothmans decals, 3 Clarions, a damaged San Remo model, 2 85 RAC Altayas, and another Ixo 85 RAC model.

Not pictured are another 33 Export and an Altaya Rothmans model with paint damage.

After yesterday's work 2 of those models are ready, 1 will remain as it is, 3 are being converted, which leaves another 39 to do. Laughing

I actually considered leaving it like that. Very Happy

I'm now fitting the orange and black stripes. They're oversized but not cutting up.

The decals I fitted yesterday are still coming loose too. Rolling Eyes

Nearly there!

Juha's projects 120320122401708109

The stripes were far too big, I only used half of what I had for the sides and the roof decals were shortened too.

It's not perfect, but by tomorrow evening they'll be loose again so I can improve on that. clown

The 1000 Lakes car is now fitted with gravel wheels.

Juha's projects 120320122750681568

I should remove the Mylchreests decals...

The same goes for this one:

Hi Juha,

Great photos of a fabulous collection. Well done!!! Very Happy Like the plans you have for them too. Smile I'd been wondering recently if I'm a bit odd having a large collection with 26 or so 6R4s in it...then I saw your photos and feel a whole lot better! It's good to be reminded I'm not the only one with this 6R4 affliction Very Happy

I noticed that some of your models are door pod-less. I've removed the door pods on one of my Code 3 models (Rob Gibson's rallycross car) and was about to do another but changed my mind when I couldn't get the door pods off cleanly Shocked .

How have you removed your door pods? Any advice you can pass on? I remember seeing a similar thread on the old Forum, but can't remember what the definitive advice was.

Cheers, Steve

Use a small knife and slide it between the pod and the shell. Cut along the door and all that's left to keep them attached are two small pins in front of the rear wheel arch which you can just pull off.

Thanks Juha, that's excellent Very Happy

I'll have a go soon enough and hopefully with more success than my last effort!!

It may come as a surprise but there are just as many Escort Cosworth/WRC's in my collection. Then again, I don't have 20 of them lying in bits. Laughing

I gave up on gathering all the Escort decal sets, it's endless.

You'll beat me to it then. Wink

The third of my Start kits arrived today. This time it's a 33 Export version. This means I now have three of those decal sets.

Now if I could find a full set of the Coleman decals I'd have all the Starter decals.
