  1. What a beauty! Looks very sharp and clean build. Orange and white works everytime on everything and those decorations are very pretty.
  2. Thanks everybody. this one was a fun but a tricky to build. I already finished the new version of this same car, as it nowadays exists here in Finland. The owner contacted me and asked if I would build his car as a model. I did and now it's in his house. it's a curbside model.
  3. Ok this pickup was stalled for a long time, but I finally got it done. Twin blower 426 Hemi will bring your pizza to you quick and still hot. Some lemonade coming along too.
  4. Under 8 sec. quarter mile, almost street legal in Finland late 1980 early 1990 was the 1:1 car. This model is as close as I could copy it. The real car still exists, the new owner has made some modifications to it, but not too much. This is a AMT kit Richard Petty with big tire openings etc. I had a big job to make it look like this. All the decals are self made too. The red/black stripes are painted.
  5. I put today the sponsor texts, the mirrors, doorhandles, lights and some other stuff too. The rear side windows got their ventilation holes drilled. The next thing to do is to fabricate the seat belts, and do some painting to the interior floor (I took the seat, the shifter and the hand brake lever off so I could do some changes to the floor and the rear of the cockpit and then I put all back in). And the PORSU text doesn't excist yet. I think 95 % is done here, so my schedule is on time.
  6. I made some modifications to the rear bumper to look more like the 1:1 Porsu.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Thanks everybody! And Kurt, I don't have any Subaru engine kit, but I hope I can build some kind of engine from scratch.
