Completed: Toyota Corolla WRC
Posted by Chris B on Saturday, January 17, 2004 7:43 PM
This model had a couple of firsts for me.
1. First ever Rally model
2. First time using Photo Etching
Other than that, this model was a total learning experience. I used a few things learned from some message boards. I tried some things I wanted to try but haven't, with good and bad results. Like I said a total learning experience and I loved every minute of it.
This is the Hasagawa 1/24 Toyota Corolla WRC Tien Sport "1998 Asia-Pacific Rally Champion".
The car was fun to build. Only problems came with a few of the instructions that weren't clear. Trial and error was able to overcome that. Windows didn't quite fit right either. the pe part of the car took forever as I was learning. Again, fun build and this will not be the last time I do a WRC car. I have a scooby to start eventually. Here's the pic:

Thanks for the comments guys. The kit was a door prize at the last model show I went too. So I used it as a test bed for stuff I hadn't tried before. I'll take it to the show as well in the fall. IT was definitely a fun thing to build and has me hooked on the WRC cars.

Crazy decals, man! It's a left hand driver! For an Asia rally team? Thought for sure it would be a right hander.

Thanks guys. I had a lot of fun building the car. It took a few months, but I am happy with the results.
I'm looking forward to another hasgawa build in the future. In the meantime my Tamiya Scooby rally car will have to hold me over.
Again, thanks for the comments guys.

Hi ChrisB,

just to inform you I created a topic Completed: Toyota Corolla WRC 1998 under the racecars/Sports cars section.
I am finally done with my model. Have a look, and let me know what you think!

Thx.
