I just undertook my second model to date. Seems like everything is coming together. I spent a more time on this one than my last one. I'm pretty much a Porsche nut. The spec called for just a plain white. I went with the pearl white to spice things up a bit. Decal work seems to be the hardest part for me. I roughed up with wheels a bit as well with some sand paper to give them that track driven look. Look at the following photos and enjoy. Comments are welcome!

Thanks gentlemen. I decided to put the car in a clear case. I made my own backdrop to go with the cars history. Check it out: 24HrsLeMansBackround_zpse9e8e804.jpg
