started this project long ago...
Xavier Pons & Oriol Julia Pascual
Mitsubishi Evo7, Group N
2004 Rally Mexico
finished 5th in PWRC
In 2004 season, he collected 27 points and finished PWRC 4th place with this car...
luckily this project doesn't need much painting besides the trunk
below are some WIP I would like to share with you all and looking forward to your comments
first I applied the decals, and then gave a long break since was in need of some parts... so, it was sitting on the bench for a long while.
the trunk was in two colors. upper part in red and the lower part with Repsol livery and colors.
but I feel like the decals won't do the justice. so I decided to paint the red part and white color as a base for the lower part where Repsol decals have to sit...
and here is the result of the trunk
after all, I gave a layer of clear coat.
next step was to find similar gravel wheels and need tires. so, I used wheels from a Sierra Cosworth with gravel tires coming from a Peugeot 206 WRC.
I also fixed the rear quarter of the exhaust to have a correct look. I have also painted the whole exhaust system into light gun metal. but no photos at the moment.
this is wip of the exhaust...
and last step was to buy a donor mitsubishi wrc for the interior and dashboard parts...
I am hoping to finish the model soon...
here is a quick mock up to give you idea guys..
finished the model last night and took some photos early in the morning, was lucky it was a nice sunny morning in here
so, here are the photos. hope you guys like it.
comments and suggestions warmly welcomed.
