So here is a fun project that came to me on the drive to NNL East this year.... You know Rauh welt Begriff? the guy that is building crazy wide body Porsche's? https://rauhwelt-usa.com/roughworld/ What if he got a hold of a Meyers Manx? I mean a Porsche is basically a Volkswagen, and a Manx is a Volkswagen so therefore a Manx is a Porsche... I started this fantasy build by working up a quick concept sketch... that i then cleaned up a bit. Then it was time to figure out what kits I needed... I picked up an Elvis Manx kit and some Scale Production pieces at NNL East. I had this 959 kit laying around i bought for basically just the tires, seemed like a good donor.
Thought I'd make a Workbench post of one of my more (for me) extreme builds. This started life as an Italeri Porsche 993 Convertible, bought with the intention of making the Japanese Porsche tuner Rauh Welt Begriff haven't done, a RWB Speedster! Now, there are transkits out there to make a RWB 993, but they are pricey and won't fit this kit, so what to do? You build it yourself of course! This is the kit I bought as the base. And to make the convertible body a Speedster body, I had to make a cover plate, so out came some modeling foam, which I sculpted to fit the body, using reference photos of the older and newer Speedster 911's. The 993 was never built from factory as a Speedster except for very few examples.
