Zero Paints: Paints set for airbrush - Ford Escort WRC Michelin Pilot - Blue + Yellow - 2 x 30ml - for Shunko Models reference SHK-D214, or Tamiya reference TAM24153
All paints are pre-thinned for airbrush use, to a consistency suitable for airbrushes with nozzle sizes of 0.3mm upwards. It is NOT recommended to overthin the paint: mixing too much thinner will increase the chance of the paint becoming too hot during application, thus affecting/melting the plastic below the primer. If unsure, we recommend you to test it first before applying to your kit.

Reji Model: Marking / livery 1/24 scale - Subaru Impreza WRC Subaru World Rally Team #3, 4 - Richard Burns + Robert Reid, Juha Kankkunen + Juha Repo, Simon Jean-Joseph + Jacques 'Jack' Boyère - Sanremo Rally, Catalunya Costa Brava Rally - Rally of Spain 2000 - resin parts, water slide decals and assembly instructions - for Tamiya references TAM24199, TAM24218 and TAM24227
The differences are small, and it takes a trained eye to spot them, but the Impreza WRCs have undergone small changes over the years. In the 2000 season, the air intakes on the hood, front bumper, or roof were modified compared to previous years. With this Reji Models transkit, which includes all these modifications and more, such as the exhaust line, the front spoiler or the rear wing with a much more developed shape, you will be able to reproduce in full detail the versions that raced in the rallies of Catalonia and San Remo 2000, with Richard Burns (number #3) as the starting driver in both rallies, accompanied by Kankkunen in Catalonia and Simon Jean-Joseph in San Remo in the team's second unit (number #4).
