Creation of a VW R32

Been away from modeling a bit, got my new kit which is a tamiya golf v5, eversince the R32 came out i was in love with it, wanted to trade in my gti for it but i couldn't afford insurance on it. So i guess this is as close as i'm going to come to one. Okay well started some progress on this one, the front bumper vents are cut out, still needs some more work on it though. The golf came in 4 doors, so i have to make a two door out of it. I shaved the panel lines and cut out the pillar, made it smaller and scribed a new door in. Only one side is done so far with lots of work still left to make it accurate, rear bumper is being worked on at the moment. The front gril has been cut out and will have a badgeless aftermarket one. Progress will be slow on this one due to a couple other projects at hand, also school and work also. The most difficult part will be creating the sideskirts. Leave some feedback guys.

This is going to be cool. I also really like the R32, it'll be nice to see it in model form.

Re: Creation of a VW R32

Awesome. This rocks! I didn't realize the three and five door cars shared the same wheelbase?

Re: Creation of a VW R32

Willmo - The wheel base is the same for all 4 and 2 door golfs (a.8t,vr6,tdi) might be a tiny bit bigger on the r32, but in scale form its close enough for me.

emperorsupra - Does weigh a little much, less than 3300 lbs to be exact, but thats less than any golf. Also its not quick from zero to sixty, but thats because of the gearing. Still 0-60 in 6.4 is quite amazing, the euro r32 i beleive is 0-62 in 6.1
Quite impressive if you ask me for being stock. The thing is that it will pull away from sti or evo (stock) in the long run.

Re: Creation of a VW R32

Looking good, I love seeing 2 door/ 4 door conversions! I might be wrong but I think the rear window right now is looking kind of too small compared to the real car. Perhaps you could take a look at it? but again i could be wrong though..

Good luck!
