Lancia Stratos - 1/24 Historic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Just finished this: the 1/24 Lancia Stratos by Hasegawa.

I decided to build it as a kind of privateer car that would compete in the historic rallys and not a scale replica of a certain real rally car.

Hope you like,

Sam

That is rather lovely! That's the way I like to build mine these days too (not that I'm getting many cars finished) - sort of my lottery dream garage!

Really nice colour, very well applied to a neatly built model! :goodjob:

Hi Keith thanks very much,

Yes my model shelf is very much a collection of what my real garage would look like if i had a lottery win, well not if you include the tanks and a eurofighter typhoon :analintruder:

Great model of a iconic rally car. I don't think I've ever met anyone who doesn't like the Lancia Stratos.

That's a great looking model of a classic rally car . Don't know if ever you follow historic rallying in Britain , but Steve Perez of Vodak Kick fame rallies a Stratos . It's great to see and even better to hear it !!!

Nice job on that Sam, watching or rather listening to one of these plunging through the forest stages on our national rally many years ago is one of my great memories. Seeing your nice model brings that all back.

I once followed a works Strat out of a stage on the 'proper' RAC Rally, that was completely missing it's rear bodywork (can't recall if it was Munari or Waldegard). Followed him down a twisty Welsh A road for about a mile or so when I got pulled in by a traffic cop. I was in my Mk1 Escort rally car that admitedly had Twin 45 Webers & a stage 2 exhaust, but when I asked the Occifer why he'd pulled me in, he said it was because my exhaust was blowing....!! So I said - 'what about that Stratos that just went past with no bodywork & about 4 times as loud as my little Escort'? His reply 'What Stratos'...??!!

Those were the days!

It was Waldegard during the 1975 RAC Rally.

Thanks Tim, was 99% sure it was, but memory tends to lapse after nearly 40 years. 40 years, good grief...!! I'm also thinking now it may have been in the Forest of Dean, rather than Wales....

Apparently a drive shaft broke whilst in Clipstone, and the rear bodywork was mislead whilst the mechanics changed it after the stage, how can you loose something like that! He carried on for the rest of the day, still setting fastest times in the process, only to be excluded as obviously the car was not road legal.

I think Munari had a similar thing happen to him on the Safari earlier in the year.

Lancia and the other works teams must of learnt from this in later years as they all carried spare body panels around with them on the service barges.
