Fujimi Enthusiast Porsche 911 RS

Recommended Posts

So I haven’t posted here in a while but this is a bit of a celebration as I have been building this for 5 years.
I purchased this from eBay as a built model and it arrived worse than I could imagine, it was a complete glue bomb, the body had been brush painted with the thickest enamel I have ever seen, the interior and whole drivetrain was painted thick black.
I broke it all apart and put the body and interior in brake fluid for about 6 months! And it still didn’t shift anything!
Discouraged I put it back in the box for about 2 years until I discovered dettol, 24 hours later I had a clean body.
I had to paint the engine and interior around the decals but they turned out ok I think. 
Apologies in advance as this is pretty pic heavy

Looks great. 

BTW, no need to apologize for pics, I think that's what most of us are here for. ;)

Wow, great restoration!  I've not seen that particular kit before either.  Were the Carrera decals not used?

Now I will look for Dettol.

Thanks, yes most of the decals were used so I had to order new Carrera and Porsche decals from scale production and paint around some others

Very nice William, where in our 32 Counties do you shout for?

Thanks for the comment, I’m from Carlow. No need to ask where you are from. It’s nice to see somebody else from Ireland on  here, I don’t think there’s many

We must get in touch, there was a young guy from Armagh, but I haven't seen him for ages.

Very nice save. Looks like it was built new out of the box. That Dettol must be some amazing stuff! Looks like it didn’t damage the body at all!
