Subaru Impreza WRC 2001 - Complete!!

Postby CBartholomew4677 » Fri Apr 08, 2011 9:56 pm

Hello All,
I managed to finish the Subaru Impreza WRC 2001, Tamiya 1/24. Very straight-forward build, went together nicely like all Tamiya WRC kits. I added a few details:
- p.e. set - SMS
- cf decals - S27, GSR
- rivets/bolts/fasteners - RB Motion, Hobby Design
- antennas - Acu-Stion
- seat-belts - SMS
- Switches, knobs, buttons - Hobby Design
- Paint - Tamiya TS-50 Mica Blue + TS-13 Clear

You can see the WIP here: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=15309

And the pictures here:

I highly recommend the Tamiya WRC kits. They go together very well, pack a nice level of detail and can be detailed well.

Next up I am contemplating a few options:
McLaren MP4/6 - Fujimi 1/20
Ferrari 801 - MFH 1/20
Lotus 79 - Tamiya or Hasegawa 1/20
Brabham BMW BT50 - Tamiya 1/20
Lotus 72C - MFH 1/20

Cheers,
Chris

Agreed on Tamiya, they do go together very nicely.
