1:24 Lancia Stratos HF '1977 Safari Rally' completed

Recommended Posts

Dipped in and out of this model over the last six months. Now working at home so took the opportunity to finish.

 

First rally car and first time creating a semi-diorama - quite happy with the results.

 

Decals were pretty fragile so took a while and a few tears here and there!

 

Used the following items for the car:

Hasegawa 1:24 Lancia Stratos HF '1977 Safari Rally

Eduard 1:24 Red Sabelt harnesses

Additional windscreen and side windows

Studio 27 detail up set

The Stratos is one of the coolest cars ever, and yours is a beauty.  Love how its all dirty and grimy, and in its natural habitat on a muddy base.

Great , well built model . Always have mixed feelings about weathering model cars  , mainly because you spend so long getting the decals on right , then they get covered over by the weathering effect . Yours looks good , because the colour scheme is still clear for all to see. Nice one !

Although, to be nearer realistic, the back end should be solid, filthy brown, that's where all the crap goes!

Good point, you're probably right. Did think the massive mud flaps might have an effect and used a few reference pics. Might have another look. Cheers 👍🏼

Lovely build, and that dash! 👌👌👌

 

I really like the organically shaped base, that's a great idea and looks excellent for me.
