First Gen Lancer Evolution (1/24 Hasegawa)

Thanks to bro sky_tokyodrifter (a fellow modeler in Malaysia who is residing in Japan) who got me this RARE kit at a good price!

Lets talk a bit of history.. The GALANT VR4 is proven too big and heavy for the WRC events. Thus Mitsubishi's engineer decided to use the Lancer platform and transform it to a 4wd turbocharged rally machine. Thus the Lancer Evolution GSR is born replacing the Galant VR4 in rally events. It's a beast!











Next, will be Evo II. Hopefully I can find the kit !

another lancer to your collection and a very nice picture taken. Btw how long to get this model done? I have Hasegawa Evo3 & 4 but Still in the unopen box for more than 8 years!
Looking at your model, i think i'm gonna start my building lancer sooner.
