Michelle Mouton - 1982 Acropolis Rally

Post by fastbackfreddie »

Hi all.
I have always admired the achievements of Michelle Mouton, so this is an attempt of a little tribute to both herself and Fabrizia, for their first win. The fact that Michelle came so close to winning the Championship only to have it lost in the final Rally shows how good she really was.
Tamiya Quattro with the following modification/additions:
Shunko decals
Roll cage modified to a full cage
Glasses for Fabrizia
Mudflaps
Harness belts and attachments.
Hope you like it!
Cheers. Tim

Nice job. Rally cars are meant to be dirty. Build this when it was first released as Michelle was one of my favorite driver then.

What a great build. Perfectly captures the era of the Audi. Very well done.

Thanks guys for your kind comments :D . I did enjoy building and weathering it - a nice departure from the pristine race cars we are all accustomed to building. I have more of these group B cars in the stash so will definitely be being building more.

Thanks! I am really happy it has managed to invoke memories of a great era in rallying.
Cheers all. Tim
