Ok so I've called time on this build.

Those that followed the WIP will know the trials and tribulations I've had with this kit regarding the decals and although the plan was to weather the shell a bit, I've just lost complete interest now that the assembly has actually finished.

WIP thread here for those that are interested:

So anywho on with the pics:

The kit was the Acropolis '93 kit and when I brought it, it came with replacement decals from Shunko.

Luckily when the kit arrived I noticed the decals also allowed you to build the '93 Monte Carlo car, which I much preferred anyway; as well as the fact that Hasegawa doesn't supply the correct gravel wheels used during the '92 and '93 seasons. They just give you gravel tyres to fit on the tarmac ones.

So I raided a spares and repair Delta I have for it's slick tyres and it's window piece too in the end lol.

I also lowered the suspension 3mm in the front and 2mm in the rear, as even though the kit is supposed to be Tarmac spec using the same parts as all the other Deltas, the ride height is way too high.

As always comments and such are welcome.

TTFN Ashley.

Despite all those really annoying problems Ashley, you've still turned out a very nice looking Delta! :thumbsup:

Hope the next build goes a lot more smoothly for you!

If there was a plastic kit or a readily available and reputable resin kit out there I would probably have it lol.

But she has 2 Stratos's, an 37 and an Integrale 16v to keep her company haha.

I think all Lancia's are a bit special. Would love to get my hands on a Dedra Integrale lol

Lovely,absolutely gorgeous,the one on the far left is it the one that did Pikes Peak.....

It's not, it's just a normal S1 E2 from the 1985 Sanremo rally. It's a 1/24 paper model I built. The person who designed it also did the Pikes peak version and I have the plans downloaded but my first attempt didn't go well, as it's a lot more complicated that the normal E2. And that was hard enough haha.
