Tamiya Bozian Racing Peugeot 206 WRC
Posted by PatW on Tuesday, May 09, 2017 10:48 AM

I originally chose this 206 against the factory ones for it's bright colours. It's been on the shelf for a few or more years, the Tamiya decals still being perfect. This is one I kept back from my sale of 30+ kits............

 

 

 

 

I made two changes to the build....the roof camera alongside the fresh air vent wasn't used on this particular 1:1 car but as it was in the kit I included it, and I changed the grille to alloy mesh.

Hi,

It could be worse.  Have you ever seen the images Revell put out for their Mitsibishi Pajero Snapkit?

Yes PJFN, it's so easy to do but you'd have thought the kit company would have got it right!
