Dear Reader,
After being on a break from modeling for 30 years I decided in 2010 to start over again, this time however I wanted to do it differently, more accurate and with attention for detail. So I started with a 1/24 car and got hooked again.

So here I present the Illusive Lamborghini Countach LP500S. I started this build in January 2013 and was on a brake during the summer. I wanted to start again however was hit by a car being driven by a drunk driver during cycling (my other big hobby).


Iíll start with showing the box with on it a red car, mine will be in blue with golden rims and white interior with black carpets. The cell phone is an indication of the size of the car!

The works started with the engine.

I followed the instructions but adjusted the ignition wiring, I used the basics as sparkplug cabs and glued the wright color and width ignition wiring on them.

The gear shift leaver supplied in the kit is not scale correct so I changed it for one made of brass.

The chairs are white with a little bit of blue.

The speakers where shallow dots in the body, so a drill bit did wonders.

As I said earlier I wanted to at more detail to the kit so I used flower to replicate the carpet in the interior.
