    Glad to see you back working on these.

    Thanks Bob.
    I'll try to explain what I did Gary.  If you have any questions just ask.
    Trumpeter Falcon Body Mods
    Set the body on a flat surface you will notice the top line of the fender slopes upwards.  Sand the bottom edge of the body to bring the top line of the fender down to a more parallel position.Aggressively sanded the outer bottom edge of the body to give the appearance of more curvature top to bottom.The bottom line of rear fender, behind the wheel should slope upwards.The front edge of the front wheel opening is too vertical.
    Remove a wedge of material in the rear valance and pull the lower edge of the fenders inward.
    Carefully bend the lower edge of the front fenders inward. Soften all edges of the body lines.

    Great work Bruce.  Where are the wheels and tires from?

    Works for me too Mike-thanks.
    Made up a set of dump pipes. Cleaned up and shortened the drive shaft due to the more forward position of the rear axle.  I think the chassis is ready for paint.

    Yea I have a full set Vol 1-Issue 1 through Vol 3-Issue 12.  My subscription lapsed a few issues into the new magazine - Scale Models International.

    A definite improvement IMHO.  It would be nice to see multiple chassis and engine manufacturers in the series again but I fear those days may be gone forever.

    Very impressive.

    Can't rotate the battery without rebuilding the inner fender so I am going to leave it as is.  Remember to deduct for this if your scoring at home.  
    Finally got some primer on the body.

    I think it compares favorably to the AMT.

    Nice work on this significant Porsche.  And I agree with you,  not one of my favorite cars either.

    I think I have a complete set of issues Steven - I'll check and confirm.  I was so happy to have some (any) race and rally car model coverage I was willing to pay the premium subscription fee to have it sent to the US.  By the end of my subscription it had become a general model magazine as Tim mentioned above.
