Hello,

YAWN!!!! Yes, another boring factory stock modern sports car.... :wink:

Fujimi kit. Box stock build with added seatbelts, exhaust heat insulation, oil filter decal, wheel valve stems, cargo net, local license plate and emissions inspection sticker. As a personal touch I added a magazine and a book inside.
Cobra Colors Giallo Midas paint (The closest I had to Porsche Speed yellow), custom mix light cocoa (chocolate brown) interior. The underside was painted to simulate having some of the covers off.

As a personal touch I added a Road and Track magazine under the cargo net and a book on top of it.

Holy ca,ca,ca,ca,cow!..This is one of you top ten indeed. A real example of how a nice & clean model should be. Not just at the top, the underneath it's also as impresive as the shiny paint job.

Porsches are not really my cup of tea, but I sure appreciate any nicely built model. This is as clean as they come, and it actually looks like the real thing in some of the pictures! 8)

And I wish you could get nice, realistic headlights and taillights like that with American kits, that's a feature that really sets it off.

Nice work, Izzy. I wish I could pull off a good yellow paint job.

Thank you all for your nice comments! Glad to see such a good reaction considering that the subject is not exactly the cup of tea of many in this modeling community.

Robert: Yes, yellow is a tough color to work with, but automotive lacquer helps a lot. I wouldn't even think of trying it with hobby enamels!

Thanks,
