nicely done looks sweeeet! are those seats flocked or is that textured paint, if they're flocked what glue do you use, i've tried pva but results a bit crap tbh, i expect i'm doing i t wrong
Actually I'm using microballoons.
First I put black enamel paint on the seat and then sprinkle the balloons on it. Let it dry over night and then you can paint it in the color you want.
If you would not add this second layer of paint, it gets this kind of alcantara look.
I like the look of it

Hm. I am doing the window trim after applying decals, clear cote and polishing as a very last step before adding clear and other small parts to finish the body shell.
I actually use a combination of decal Matt black stripes and free hand painting to do the window trim: first I outline the trim with thin decal stripes and after that I paint the rest by simply using my 0.2 brush and Vallejo Matt black.
never got myself satisfied with masking and spray painting the window trim (always looked like the rats where on it) so I developed this method for me. Downside is that it is quite time consuming but effort pays off in a totally clean and very rubbery looking window trim. Requires a little practice in fitting these decal stripes too…
thanks Dennis. that's a great tip. And I like your analogy with the rats 🙂
I'll get these decals and try it out. Thanks !!!!
I guess it's done.
Looks awesome Thomas ??
Thank you Luke

That's a wrap!!
I very much enjoyed this build.
For me the S1 was, is and will forever be the most fascinating Rally Car of all time.
Well done mate! The efforts you made totally paid off 👍 👍 👍
One point of criticism: better check those rear lights. I think that they have to be tinted black…
BTW: where did those gravel tires came from?
They are from a Tamiya Peugeot 205 kit. I built that one earlier but didn't like how it turned out.
I want to build the Peugeot again but with the Evo2 kit from Renaissance Models.
But first I need to get the kit itself ? might need to order it from Japan
I would pay a really good price

Tempted to get this kit, are you going to gloss it or semi gloss it?
Semi gloss. For me, Rallye cars gat be glossy 😉
Can't be glossy of course 🙂
Understood, comming along nicely Thomas
Thank you Jonn. However it's currently more or less on hold as I'm working on the Audi S1 kit most of the time
That blue looks great
I agree. This is the Tamiya spray TS54 and I was surprised how great it turned out
