Another project I just started. The Rally Audi Quattro A2 from Rally World Champion Walter Röhl. In order to get this model close to the original, some changes have to be made. The first thing I did was change the additional front headlights. Removable caps for the headlights were provided and I also replaced the LEDs. Then the body, floor panel and wheel arches were completely repainted. The underbody and the wheel arches are painted in Alpine white in the original. I had now done this. The exhaust consists of several pieces and the screws make the exhaust not attractive. Here I put all the pipes together, filled them, sanded them and painted them. The cardan shaft is also just rigid and immovable. So I removed the joint and replaced it with a movable joint. So far all fastening screws have been replaced with hexagonal screws, subframe, chassis etc. The engine cost me a bit of time. Here too, the components are only static and immovable. So I converted the alternator and fitted it with a mini electric motor. All pulleys on the camshaft, crankshaft and alternator are now mounted and run freely. I have attached a YouTube link about the engine. I also helped a bit with the decals. The Audi had an HB cigarette advertisement. According to EU law, cigarette advertising is not allowed on toys, so I got them in other ways.
