1/24 Tamiya Calibra DTM

Recommended Posts

hi guys

Here's another side project I have just finished - Tamiya's Opal Calibra DTM. Heavily inspired by the Zakspeed version (as well as Need For Speed cars), I went for a matte black colour. I'm not normally a "Matte Black car" kinda guy, but I do think it looks the part on this machine. I build this once before when I was in my very early twenties in red after seeing one like it in London but I had all the skills of a novice and it looked terrible

I modified the rear diffuser and and paddle shifters - stolen from a Aventador PE Set - to the wheel (no manual box for me)

I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.

Anyway, enough talking, time for pics:

I would LOVE to get the Revell BMW M3 DTM kit to do the same but it's rarer than rocking horse pooh. Maybe one day I'll find one or they'll re-release it (hopeful but unlikely)

Well, that's all I have. Back to the Star Destroyer this weekend and I'll try to finish the bridge section

Thanks for looking

Si

I don't have a spare quarter of a mill mate otherwise I would put aside my aversion to these makes. Look out for the review of the aoshima kit later this week Anyway back to the calibra thread lol

Yep,I do like a black motor(I've owned a few,a couple of Mk2 RS 2000's,a Mk1 XR2 and an MG 2ltr EFI)but they're a pig to keep clean.

That Calibra(I remember them racing too)looks very sinister,I like it.
