Silverado

Lancia 037 build (TA-02)

Recommended Posts

Hi all, this is my first post on the forums here and the 1:10 build of the mighty Lancia 037.

 

The chassis build is well documented on TC forums so wont post pics of that.

 

The bodyshell has decent realism to it, but I wanted more so I cut open the air intakes and added some stainless mesh.

Also plastic welded the body post holes and window mounting screw holes shut.(will use magnets to keep the shell on the chassis)

 

The body is starting to look decent now, had major paint issues with Tamiya spray(never used these), changed to 500ml spray cans and the result is not too bad, some cleaning needed still but .. -it looks ok to me.

Some decals and paint still to apply.

That body came out looking nice.  Where did you get the mesh for your vents?  

You post got moved to this section as it’s a rerelease model.

Hello, and what a fantastic way to introduce yourself ;)

I suspect that the thread was moved to the re-release forum because the chassis build was not included. I admit I was kind of hoping to see your take on how the TA-02S builds up.

Keep up the nice work!

Thanks!

 

I managed to get the slop out of the wheels by shimming  ,and installed the body mounts.

The motor has been run in properly, hoping to get a bit more out of it by doing the water breaking in method.

 

I did not like the inserts Tamiya provided, so I ordered rally tires from china and swapped the inserts to stock tires. Much better. -and I have another set of rally tires now(pirelli).

 

 

Only soldering and esc mounting to do, then it is time to rally!

Interior is done, my first that is. really shaky hands and too big brushes :P  -will look ok looking few meters away.

Was on a budget and had blue paint(shiny) and did not spend few euros on correct matte paint so looks like the crew has rubber gloves on. whatever lol.

Tested the Pirelli ,much more grip then stock semi slicks on gravel. The stock almost slick tires were not too bad ...

 

The Silvercan is surprisingly peppy on 2s

It is surprisingly fast with the silver-can motor... and that same gearing is good for motors down to 13T! It means a silver-can will run nice and cool all day ;)

Nice to see it up and running! The 037 is quite an attractive car at speed.

Very nice job on mounting that body with magnets, black poles sticking thru always hurts the eyes.

Never realised what a massive front overhang this has until now. :o Was in two minds whether or not to enlarge the arches when I start my Lancia Rally tribute, but definitely will now.
