Skoda Fabia WRC S2000

This is the Belkits version of this WRC rallycar. A very detailed kit with PE parts and Skoda factory decals. One problem was the top of the rollcage being twisted, so fit the sides onto the interior tub, and cut the cage behind the first top crossmember allowing the rear half to be sanded to fit, OK done. The rest is straightforward.

I have various clearcoats from three makers, dull/clear and a new one, pearl clear, so I tried it on this build after laying up most of the bodyshell decals. These were Sebastien Ogier's first drive with the VW Group, supporting 'Wings for Life'.

The clearcoat with sparkle..............

There are in the kit bumper mounted night lamps, but they cover decals so I left them off.

Thanks PFJN. Yes a very good quality kit along with the MK1 Ford Escort and VW Polo WRC rally cars. I hope to build the VW soon as it's on the shelf with Red Bull aftermarket decals.

Very nice Pat, I respect the decision to leave the lights off. The amount of time you must have put into those decals, you would want to be keeping them well on display. 

You could say this model is, "Simply clever"

Thanks fjs for your interest and comments. I just love decaling, even to the extent that I now produce/print my own!
