    My model painting skills are not great, but for completeness here are couple of images of the painted car





    I am about to set off designing the full size version with the target of setting a blisteringly fast time down a rapid Rally Finland (or 1000 Lakes Rally as I prefer to know it) stage

    In the summer break, one more example of my 037 built, this time in classic motorsport colours, and presented to a friend of mine on his birtday. The sand dust weathering (in my dreams) is courtesy of a Moroccan tarmac special stage

    Chaps and chapesses, these are trying times for the world and I truly hope you are keeping well and that we are out of the woods sooner rather than later.

    In the meantime, staying home and concentrating on the daily chores and home schooling, occasionally there is time to spare for my model making hobby. Anyway, I hope the images below brighten up the day a bit (though it has to be said, we have been having gorgeous weather in the last week here in the UK).

    I actually built the first 1/43 scale model in October last year (one of the red ones in the images below) and that went to Miki Biasion (1983 European rally champion with the original 037), who I met at Rally Legend. That was followed by few more models - the grey and dayglo red was given to a colleague at work as a wedding present at the start of the year, while the weathered Martini one, found its way to Carlos Sainz Sr after a chance encounter with him at the end of January. For these models I was lucky to get the last few remaining sets of Kyosho's Dslot 1/43 tyres in the couple of sizes that suit my model.











    Couple of 1/64 models that also went to friends - definitely very challenging in terms of painting without errors:






    Just before we went into lock down, I got a very small and relatively accessible 3D printer from Anycubic (Photon), using liquid resin process (variation of SLA), which should be ideal for small models as in theory it is very accurate, but haven't had the time to try it out yet. If all is well, I hope to give it a go soon.

    All the best and stay well,

    Nick

    Great stuff Nick; keep up the good work.

    Btw, there’s a recent piece about the astonishing hybrid 4wd (!) 037 developed by the late Mr. Volta. It worth taking a look: https://www.diariomotor.com/competic...lly-037-4wd-h/

    Thanks Mate, much appreciated. I somehow missed your post - I was aware of Volta's project, but hadn't seen the article in the link above, great stuff, it is so sad that Giuseppe Volta is gone, I am sure he would have given us many more reasons to pay attention to his projects.


    Also, with the current lockdown in the UK, I was able to devote time to finding the right settings for my SLA desktop 3D printer and after two weeks of exhaustive activities, I am happy to say I've got something that can produce decent results. Few images below showing the "production run" so far, with some of the prints less perfect than others, and the first finished model:
