Porsche 911 Outlaw 8 hour build

Recommended Posts

I was bored yesterday and decided to challenge myself by building a car in less than a day. My kit of choice was Revell's re-release of the Porsche 911 carrera 3.0 which I've built as an Outlaw. I already knew tires were completely wrong so I'd already dug out another set, but I also had to find another set of wheels because the originals were simply too badly molded... I also need to find another set of door handles due to the same reason but so far no good.

Other than wheels and tires it's got a bit of lowering done to it, otherwise it's box stock. The body is painted with a light dusting of Tamiya solid black, and misc. details are painted using Humbrol paints and sharpies.

I'm pretty satisfied with the result considering it only took eight hours from start to finish.

 

Here are a few pics of the car together with my first Outlaw 911, enjoy!

It would take me 8 hours just to strip parts off the spurs, well done!

Thanks! It was a fun build, much thanks to the fact that I didn't take 8 hours just to strip the pieces :lol:

Definitely my kind of car. Very nice...and you've given me an idea for the 1:1 911 I'm currently amassing parts for.

Awesome to hear Bill! I would love to own a 911 myself but not even old wrecks here in Sweden are cheap enough for me to even consider something like that.

Looking good!

Thanks Steve!

Great work! & in only 8 hrs! Last time I tried to build a kit over a weekend it ended up taking 4 months...

Johan, nice build. Question : what makes an outlaw?

Thank you! The term Outlaw originally came from a company called Emory Motorsports, who are specialised in modifying Porsche 356's, but the term has been carried over to the 911's too. Basically it's a vintage, street legal Porsche with modifications done to it to make it lighter, faster and more fun to drive, both on and off track. The cars of Magnus Walker are the perfect examples of Outlaw 911's: http://magnuswalker911.blogspot.se/

This kit has been stored away since September last year so I knew I wanted to make an Outlaw build already, but colors, interior details, decals and wheels came to me while I was building it

Thank you! I have quite a few of those too, some that really should only take a couple of hours to finish, but that's why I decided to build this one in such a short time.
