I would like to share my Spirit of America Porsche 956 with all of you. I fell in love with this livery when I first saw it. I found the Studio 27 decals and just had to build it. This post will be a little photo heavy so be forewarned. If you would like to see the WIP you can go here: WIP: Other Racing: Road Racing, Land Speed Racers - Model Cars Magazine Forum. A list of products used is listed there. There is also a little rant within that thread so be forewarned about that too...lol. Questions? Ask away. Comments? Please post them. Critiques? I'm a big boy. Maybe I'll learn something from them. This model has only made it to one model contest so far. I am pleased with the results. It is nice to have your work recognized by your peers. This is a shot of some test fitting during the build process. The drivetrain is not complete in this picture but I thought it was kind of cool. The rear cover is not fully in place, it is just sitting on the model. The model will normally be displayed with it off.
I thought I would share another build with all of you. I am going to build the Spirit of America liveried Porsche 956. I will be using the following items on this build: Tamiya Newman Porsche 956 Studio 27 Spirit of America decals Studio 27 wheels Scale Motorsport PE set Eduard 6 point racing harness Various Detail Master and Pro Tech items Now for a couple of notes. I am no expert on these types of race cars. I just happen to like them, I think they are absolutely gorgeous machines. I do not expect my model to be an exact replica. I will try to explain why I did what I did if I deviated from the prototype. I appreciate all comments and suggestions that you may offer. The truth is, like most of my WIP threads that I have done in the past, this model is already complete. I still think this WIP could be beneficial to someone thinking of building a similar model. The following pics are of the car that I'm building. I got them from the Internet. I would give credit to the photographer if I knew who they were. Here are a few pics of what I am starting with.
