Showcase #31 - Vector W8 built by Jorge Salazar

Despite the number of 1/87 models available, the specific model you want just hasn't been picked-up by the industry or any of the artisans....  So what do you do ?  

You build your own !

The starting point was a Monogram Lamborghini Countach.

Which needed some cutting, filling, filing and sanding....

...then some reshaping...

...some fillng and some scribing...

...and more filling, filing and sanding....

... adding resin cast parts and.. more filing, filing and sanding....

... adding more scratch-built parts and filling, filing and sanding....

...until...  it was ready for painting and detailing. Here's the result !
