Tamiya 1/24 Lamborghini Countach

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

in  the past years I slowly built my Lamborghini collection. A Murcielago was done first (I was not really satisfied with the painting on it TBH) and this Tamiya Countach (LP400) was my second attempt in car modeling. So this is not really an in-progress topic, the car was finished years ago, but I try to post the photos I shot during the build - and of course the photos of the finished model.

 

This was the first model I tried the usual polishing techniques, 3000 grit sandpaper followed by the Tamiya polishing compound set. The result was quite satisfying compared to the Murcielago model, polishing makes miracles even to a not-so-well-done finish...

 

I took photos during the body paint only, no photos of the interior/engine/chassis build unfortunately. First I had to paint the dark blue plastic to gloss white, as I wanted my Countach to be a nice yellow one...

IIRC (it was about four years ago I posted anything here) there shouldn't be too many images in one post, so I will continue in the next post...

Nice, the faster version without the gaudy aero boy racer stuff.

 

Hello Slartibartfast,

I guess by aero boy racer stuff you mean the LP5000 version. TBH I got a diecast model of an LP5000 as a child, and my love to Lambos is based on that one...
Anyway, nothing is better/faster than than Starship Bistromath, isn't it? 😉

 

Cheers,

Zoli
