I could put my Lancia 037 in but I'd have to break my own rules to do that but as we're the only ones Patrick would it really matter it is only just started and I don't have photos of it as an unbuilt kit, well partly unbuilt most of the kit is still on the trees.  And yes U'r right it seems that no one is interested in rallying no wonder it is off the chart as far as a motor sport goes yet it's one area in motorsport that the manufacturers rely on to get things right for the ordinary road car, as Mazda would say Vroom Vroom.

OK Patrick as U can see there has been a slight change to my 323, it has gone from a club car to a marathon car with the lights being changed from below the bumper to on top and lights being placed just in front of each exterior mirror.

Apart from these changes nothing else has been done.

For what it's worth, I've been following this thread for the past couple of months - good to see someone with an interest in rally cars.

I'll see what I can do - most of my kits/supplies are packed away, but I do have a Monogram 1/24 Datsun 280Z Rally kit coming in the mail.

Welcome MattS70 and your Datsun 280Z rally car! I just found two more cars already finished but not decalled. Both are Tamiya, the first one is the rally favourite the Scoobydoo Impreza WRC, a few shots prior to the decals...

This is the Peoguet  205 T-16, one of a group of rallycars that were banned in the 1980's for being too powerfull. Tamiya released this in 1985 (well that's what it says on the box) and in those days I bought one kit at a time and built it straight away, no stash no spares, all built as soon as bought. I built this as a rallycross car after seeing one in the European Rallycross Championship where most of those high performance rally cars went after the ban order was inflicted. There were also Lancia Delta Integrales, Lancia Stratos and Ford RS200's. Although built with one seat installed I may take the body off and put the other one in or just clean up the body(may paint) and add the decals.Here's a few shots....

What I liked about this kit was the whole engine detail with turbo as with the Tamiya Dakar Mitsubishi that came out around the late 90's, photos which I will add in a minute.....

These are the photo's of the Tamiya Mitsubishi Paris -Dakar winner I built after the Peoguet in the late 80's to the end of the 90's....

Now with the front and rear body panels off showing complete engine detail in the front and rollcage and spare wheels in the back...

Engine detail....

And Spares...

It's a pity that Tamiya don't issue any more detailed kits like this at present of rally cars.

Do you know of a relatively inexpensive source for these lamps?  Or a way to scratch build them?

The lamps that I have used over a period of time have been 'borrowed' from other kits. The only place I can imagine at present are resin manufacturers of kits or accesories. If I see any I'll shout.

I'm working on that one, too.

It's looking good Chillyb1.  Where are the decals from?

They are from Studio 27 and I got them from Strada Sports. They were very nice to work with and I think they look great on this car.

Two other cars that where banned where the Lancia Stratos and its stablemate the 037 both for the same reason too much power like the Pug these babies where pushing around 500hp out of their little turbo 2 liter motors, these days it's nothing to see that power coming from a standard 2 liter road car here in Oz.  I thinking of entering my Lancia 037 but I'm going to have to break my own rule of not showing it before it was started BUT hey we need a few more cars and it's good to see someone else coming on board at this late stage so wot the heck let's drop a rule or two wot do ya say Patrick.

Patrick, I was thinking of tossing in my  big scale Datsun 240Z Safari car BUT and I mean BUT it's too close to the end of the CBP to do so even though it's another kit that's partly started, I might show it anyway just so U can can see it.

There U go Patrick one of the outside and one showing the Navi's position or as they call 'em these days Co/driver side. Oh one other thing the lights R going to be LED lit.

Yes dingo that looks very good, keep it coming. You thought up the thread so you can extend it if you want to!

I've been busy and just finished one side of the 2001 scooby WRC with decals....

[View:/themes/sca/utility/:550:0]

[View:/themes/sca/utility/:550:0]

I have another, this time a 2005 version of the scooby that I was going to use as a circuit racer,but..... now perhaps a rallycross car, so from the white paint finish to the matt black that is very popular here on road cars. It's done with what is called vinyl wrap, yes you got it, the whole car is coated in a coloured vinyl sheeting. It's laid up in a similar way that sun visors are laid onto windscreens but either over part or all of the body! I've cheated and used Tamiya Matt Black with a Matt Clear on top. I will then lay up the factory Subaru decals and coat again in Matt Clear. The colours should look pretty good! Anyway enough of that, the first pic is of the white finish and the other two are off the Matt finish.....

I've just finished the '01 Subaru WRC of Burns & Reid. I met Richard Burns at Silverstone a number of times when he came to do 'drive pasts' with other great stars like Colin McRae, Kankunen,Vatenan at classic events. I also saw Richard after his first brain tumour op, when in remission, with his girlfriend on a large Honda Sports roadbike. here are the pics......

Here is my Lancia 037 that I'm building straight from the box after deciding not to do the gold Esso car.

still more decaling to do.

As U can see most of the parts R still on the trees.

Looks good dingo. Are you going to do both the Lancia and the Datsun? This Lancia kit is the same as the one I put on this thread earlier, but mine has the To-Tip Decals. I'll be away now for a few days so I'll speak to you later.

The 037 I'll try and get finished by the end of the CBP, BUT the datsun that's more of a long term project Patrick I would like to fit it with working lights, a few nuts and screws etc to make it a must better model if I can.

The lancia is almost finished and guess wot Patrick done over two nights and no I don't mean a couple of hours each night, I worked on it all night as I was having problems with my elbow giving me lots of pain and the only way to get my mind of the pain is to do something so the lancia got done to this stage.

just a few more decals to go on it then I dust it up abit for some weathering.

Dingo, what a fantastic job you've made of the 037! That was a quick build. It looks great and I look forward to seeing your weathering on it too. Very well done. I'm still trying to finish the black Scooby, hopefully in the next week or so.

Thanks Patrick, yep I'm now working on the weathering using a toothbrush & some bottled dirt from my LSH I sure hope it works out right, also I'm considering extending the CBP so I can fit the big Datsun in, I'm working on the extractors for it at the moment and hope to get them complete and right shape by the end of next week they're made from solder.  I will post photos shortly.   I hope the extention of time will encourage other to continue their builds I know had a cojuple of other guys join in but they seem to have vanished into the woodwork again, come on fellows please front up again.

OK Patrick have decided to finish off the Z car but not as per the box, it will be built my ussual way how I think it would be if I had built the real thing which I nearly did back when they first come out and I almost bought one to rally.

Hi dingo, I see you've been busy, the 240Z is looking very good. I have now finished the '05 Monte Carlo Subaru Impreza. I know it should be blue bodywork but I fancied matt black, and it certainly suits the luminious decal set!

[View:/themes/sca/utility/:550:0]

and last but not least the rearview!

[View:/themes/sca/utility/:550:0]

I tried to put the tyre decals on but Tamiya are now using the press-on type of tyre decal and they just don't work! Enjoy anyway. I don't know what to do next, but I have a 20+ year-old Pocher Mercedes still not finished and as that was my wife's present on getting my first major management job I must try and finish it!

Patrick, ya Scooby-Roo looks good but I'm not sure about that exhaust tip it's looks just a bit to big but then that only my opinion and ya don't have to take any notice.  Do you have a suggestion on how I can hang the 240Z doors especially the left one which has a broken hinge pin ( I even broke it years ago when I bought the damn thing back then (1970-80's)) it would be a great help to replace the crappy things that Tamiya supplied, check out the photo that shows the left side of the Datto.
