Scale I Build

Found 2 results

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
