    I'm surprised that no one has Cast this in resin yet.

    I sectioned that piece as I just couldn't handle the way it looked, It helped that i also sectioned the body about a scale 3 Inches. Go with what you have and if you need some other grilles bumpers PM me.

    If that's your idea of "tinkering"waht happens when you get serious

    I think that yellow 911 shows up as a kit with paint and such,and maybe in a 3-car set. Check ebay .

    These look quite nice! Are they out of the box builds ?

    When I mentioned GAPS they are not that big and I am leaning more to a clear acrylic.

    You can use whatever you want to primer...that don't necessarily mean the results you'll get is what you want. I use automotive primer in quart cans and this is so thick that I thin it 2: 1 and more. 
    I think you have more experience using gesso so give it a try. Test on some junker bodies or the plastic spoons

    Good question. I tried the Second kit I ordered and although it's better (acceptable)  I am looking for a clear adhesive to fill the gaps.On a positive note A brief go around on the rear glass with some 400 grit paper yielded a perfect fit.

    X3 on the trim. What did you do  to get the pattern?

    All is not lost! Contacted Moebius customer service and they are sending me a replacement windshield!
    Thumbs up to Moebius!!

    Glad I ordered TWO kits. Echoing Harry P why should i have to do this. It's a great idea,but now I get a chance to practice fitting another one from the second kit. We waited a loonng time for this kit and this is disappointing.

    WOW !   Chuck, your really getting into this! Nice work!
  15. Mike Kucaba added a post in a topic First cast?   

    If you cast these parts as they are you would not need a 2 Part mold. You could also glue and refine the unit and do a 1 piece mold,but the RTV  should be VERY flexible. You may get only a few copies.
