Hey Everyone! I have for sale on ebay an uncompleted kit. Audi Quattro 5836. Please check out my listing. Please note, however, that it is my first ebay listing ever so pics are good, not great. This is a rare item. My seller name is lorettarob. Thanks,
Well, thanks to neverfollow's very nice TL-01 Audi project beating me to the punch on mine (and crushing my fleeting hopes of having the only Carisma Audi shell in the States ), I thought I'd go ahead and post some pics of my 99% finished M-04 fitted with a 1/12 Audi Quattro Coupe body. To make this body fit, the M-04L body spacer has to be removed, making an M-04M with a wheelbase of 225mm. Because I wanted this to be as clean/scale as possible, I didn't want to drill body holes for posts. I tried the R2 Hobbies Aluminum Stealth Mounts, and they worked OK, as discussed here: http://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=67544 These pics are of the finished body on the original stealth mounts...I have not had time to lower/adjust the mounts as much as I would like to, so the body sits a litte higher than optimal. I also just got some of the newer R2 Hobbies magnetic post mounts, so I may try those later, too. Because this is such an 80s icon, I've tried some 80s-era excess gold Kawada wheels, in addition to the more stock-looking Tamiya 18-spokers. Feel free to vote on your favorite...I'm leaning toward the bling. The side decals were supposed to emulate the vanishing rings decals on the original Coupes, but I couldn't find any small ones that matched. I settled on some brake caliper decals that are OK, but not great. A few other decals ordered, a few salvaged from other kits, and a few I made round out the detailing. I am also happy with the effect I got on the taillamps by painting the shell silver underneath, and then using a red and orange Sharpie to color the exterior of the lexan...gave a very realistic effect. Anyway, here she is, in all her imperfect glory...sorry for the iPhone quality pics. Oh, and the asterisk in the title, of course, refers to the irony that this is supposed to be a "Quattro", but it's functionally a RWD...don't tell anyone.
