Peugeot 2008 DKR

As I am wont to do, I was browsing through pinterest for something, I don't remember what it was, but this file caught my eye, a simple paper model of the Peugeot 2008 DKR, in prototype colors.


So, I downloaded the picture, and when I got a chance, print the car.
Started with scoring, and cutting out the part, and began to apply glue, the kit built up in the standard manner, but at the nose, I used the pieces that still stuck out by "blending" them into the front clip of the car.

One glaring error needs to be addressed though, the left side of the car is mirrored from the right side, so this leads me to think that the "model" was made from extracting the front, sides and back from published photographs, and the left side was not photographed, which needed the mirrored image .

I guess I won't be showing that side to the public.

Russian Kamaz Kit

I have seen pictures of this kit, supposedly only obtainable in the Russian Federation. I did do some searching, and found a retailer, but one needed to buy $50 worth of product, I just want two copies of this kit. I hope some of my Russian friends have seen this kit, and could purchase two copies for me.

This would be a jewel of my collection for sure.
