Lancia 037
Posted by Bradeq on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 8:10 AM

Hi,

After a lot of tanks and airplanes I have a need to do something else, so tried my first car model :-O It was a gift from last Xmass, and after two weeks here is result. Kit is from Hasegawa 1/24  and because my wallet is emtpy I used favourite strategy, dont buy anything , use what you already have. It will be just in my showroom, a lot of mistakes … for example blue is 3 year old Tamiya X4 mixed with dfrop of white, it was hard to mix ( it was used for Mustang P-51 blue nose) this paint was almost dead but I tried it and it works.

My favorite Rally Car design of all time, and yours is a beautiful replica of it.

BTW...one of the marks of a true craftsman is that he can work with what he's got. The paint looks flawless to me: if you hadn't mentioned the mixing problem, I never would have guessed. YesYesYes

Good-looking race car! Good work and thanks for sharing.

As Greg and Don alluded to, if you feel you made compromises, it surely doesn't show in the end result.

Very much thanks guys for kind words :-) I think it is my personal mark that every model what I did must have a piece of alu beer can.

Wait.  All of my models involve beer too but it sounds like you're saying the can is part of your model.  Is that correct?

midnightprowler: I think yes, Hasegawa 1/24 Lancia 037 "Chardonette" , there is a lot of different paint scheme, this one I got one year back and it was some kind of limited edition. But The most famous Martini should be no problem to buy

keavdog: AK Extreme metal - polished aluminium (based with clear shiny black), then coat of clear acrylic tamiya X22 (3 layers), then wash - enamel odourless thinner mixed with cheap dark brown oil paint.

Ted4321: Yes, taht is correct, it is good building material actualy :-) First drink, then use this think aluminium or what is it ... and it is also good for planet earth, some king or recyclation :-P

As an ex-rally marshall in the day, these were fast formidable cars. Perhaps a little fragile, especially on rough forest stages but still fast never the less until they fell to pieces!

Superb model, superb build! Thanks for sharing
