    Love Child of Porsche's Nerdy 914 and Rockstar 918
    After nearly a year and a half on the workbench (!), I'm happy to see this one 'under glass.' Only my second completed model after being away from the hobby for nearly two decades and far and away the most ambitious. Patience truly does come with age.   The front, rear, undercarriage, interior, and engine of the 918 were shoehorned to fit the 914 body. Color is Tamiya's Light Green (TS-22) (a nod to Porsche's Acid Green), with clear coat, polish, and wax. Scale Motorsports carbon fiber decals (twill and clear) were extensively utilized. Rims and tires were iForged-Equip-V3s from www.eightyone81.com. Engine is weathered via Tamiya weathering kits, Tamiya smoke, and Tamiya panel line accent. Engine bay cowlings and cross member came from ye olde parts box. Its got some fleas and there are a few things I'd do differently if I did it over again, but overall I'm very happy to see what I envisioned become reality. Amazing photos that make it look way better than it should are courtesy of my wife Amanda (www.morningdewphotography.com). Enjoy!

    DJ...love this idea!  Unfortunately, I was close to completion when you posted.  I do have another 914 body that will be a future project and will be sure to incorporate your idea then.  Thanks!

    Can't believe its been February since my last post!  Here's the latest on the build.  Most of the interior and engine are finished.  Body is painted and clear coated and in the process of being polished.  Shouldn't be more than another six months or so before this can get moved to the 'Under Glass' section...lol.
