Chevrolet Cruze WTCC TC1 - Tom Coronel (part 1)

And off we go with another project.
But this won't be a quick one (as if I ever had quick projects...) as there's quite an amount of plastic surgery involved...

Ever since I got the ZoomOn transkit in my possession (discussed here) I've been very eager to get working on this one.
But I tried to keep my cool and finish one of the unfinished builds first.

Well. I can tell now that that plan has failed...

As a matter of fact, I was so eager to get going on this one, that I forgot to take some pictures showing the original body of the car (as supplied in the kit).

So, what's the plan?
Base kit is the Aoshima/Beemax Chevrolet Cruze WTCC.
This will be enhanced with the transkit by ZoomOn.


Before starting with the chassis I wanted to get the body sorted first as I suspected this was going to take a fair amount of work.

First step was easy. To remove the front of the original body.
Well, okay, not that easy, because there was some delicate cutting to do. But all went well.
