  1. Yeah Bruce, I showed some pics of my model to my friend, who has the real Porsu, and he was very excited about it. I'm still waiting for the engine donor Porsche to arrive. Meanwhile I started to make a Subaru engine from scratch. I didn't ask what specific Subaru engine he is using, but it's 3.0 liter flat 6, so I searched some good photos of EZ30 and try to copy that. No way this can be an accurate replica of that strange to me engine, but something close enough, atleast for myself. 3D print is out of my reach and interest. The engine is not in the right place, it has to be moved forward and up too.
  2. Thanks Bruce, this is so fun to build. I really like making my own parts, even if they are a bit rough sometimes. Today my Porsu got the wheels and tires planted to the axles and some paint under the front lid. I'm still waiting for that 939 to arrive to get the engine build started.
  3. I ordered a Tamiya Porsche 959, there might be an engine that I can start converting it to something I need. While waiting the package to arrive, I made some details to the stock cockpit. I left the dash out, and I don't use any metallic aftermarket stuff, so I make these bits and pieces out of styreine plastic. While painting the floor white, I messed a little bit the Recaro seat, but no worries, it will be painted black later. So the Recaro seat is from this kit, I just made the head rest a bit wider. The steering wheel is from parts box. Everything else is scratch built. I hope the 959 will arrive soon. Thanks for looking.
  4. Thanks everybody! And Kurt, I don't have any Subaru engine kit, but I hope I can build some kind of engine from scratch.
  5. Cheers Bruce! Today I cut the big front lip off and made a new one with cooling holes too.
  6. My friend is a car mechanic, and has had this old race 911 Porsche for years. Now he's determined to get it on the track again, Subaru 6-boxer planted in the engine bay, new roll cage, new brakes and all kinds of cool stuff. I've had this RSR934 stored many years too, and now I try to make a model of it to look like my friends racer. First I make the body shell changes.
  7. Thanks Cpt Tuttle! It's been kind of slow progress recently here at my cozy corner, but I've managed to put a 4-link to the rear axle and made the tail gate.
  8. Here's mine. Buick is starting to show some warping as years go by.
  9. Thanks again everyone. I will add a 4link to the rear axle, it already has air suspension bags installed. I took the front end system from some Nascar. After fine tuning the wheels it should work fine. There might even be space enough for the disc brakes too.
