  1. Supercar of it's time-very successful rally car and great job modeling it.

  2. Very well done. Good paint work can make OOB come to life. I've built a few Tamiya car kits. Finally got used to there trick of making the body mold lines so faint they don't show up till paint gets on them.

  3. This is fantastic. Great Alpine.
