1/8 VW GOLF GTI MK2 stance project

Recommended Posts

Hi, to everybody.
I’m italian and a big vw fan (i have a couple of mk3)
I started 2 years ago the collection of this 1/8 golf GTI (100 issues) only for italian market and the collection is now terminated......my model not (some stop due to work on a couple of 1/8 Delta WRC)
I’ve started a tuned/stanced project but i decided to remade it with extra details to add more realism to my model.

 

I work on this model when I'll made some work pause on Mclarem


Here the status (i've stated to rework in July)

I added the wire from distributur to ignition coil and i full remade the plug wire in with red cable.

I reapinted in green the gearbox cap, in the future i'll put a vw logo waterslide decal

I dediced to fill the inside wheel arch with putty to give more deep and realism.

I started the work on engne bay. The kit give engine bay separeted from chassis and the junction with chassis is really worst

I "welded" the engine bay and i started to rebuilt the spar that was all wrong in the model (just notched the chassis)

 

To fit the absorber, i opned the top mount sunspesion to have right access on ammo screw

FInally i try a first check for the inside clearence between chassis and and engine.

Very cool, I’ll be watching this. I had a mk2 a while back, I’ll try and dig a pic out. It was a nightmare as I couldn’t go over speed bumps, pot holes or even a hump back bridge by where I lived 😂

had to drive miles out of my way to get home from work 😂

and forget about multi-story carparks

With the help of Lego bricks I made the missed servobrake and i made a new fitting sistem on engine firewall

I started to selfmade (just finish the final shape) a new clutch lever on gearbox to replicate the future clutch cable (totally missed in the kit)

These are my sisters GTI 93 and Tdi 94. The white is for treffen, the black isa dalily. I bought a Fujimi kit 1/24 to replicate my 1:1 daily....the hardest part of project will be to find the Lorinser rims.

Frah - Keep posting!  Following with great interest.  I wish I had the luxury of looking directly at the real thing.  Great work both model and full scale.

😁 Yes JCH i continued in posting.....i don't post in one shoot all progress because i s too much, but i'm very glad to share with you my work

 

 

I coated in primer the engine bay to highlight the faults.

I decided to eliminate the wiper tank. I'll fitted an extra engine oil cooling radiator. I remade a modified radiator and i self made a first version of cooling duct.

I checked the clearence between bonnet and radiator duct...It's too near. I decided to remade a new shape of duct.

I added joint to radiator for future braided hose

I start to modified the inside high beam projector to create a Venturi duct for cooling the extra radiator. I removed the fluted glass and i fitted a metal mesh. Before to finish this work I need to rework in the future the headlight for fit the mesh properly.

Before to proceed with other engine or gearbox details, i remade whole engine mount system.

The kit has only 1 (the gearbox side and also is not completed) of 3 engine mount.

I remade my best for my skills, the 3 engine mount.

I reinforced the front struts and i used a modified lego brick to match the right angle for front mount

The rear (timing belt side) was totally missing.
I self made an alu bracket.

The two rear engine mount are fixed on subframe to make easier the future fitting of subframe and arms.
