Porsche 918 Question

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone            I'm about to start the Revell Porsche 918.  Just after the doors, before the rear deck lid the body widens.  On the 1:1 car is this area open or is there a screen???     I look at pics online and its just a black area.  If you acn help thanks.... Mike

That’s the entrance to some sizeable carbon air intakes feeding the engine air boxes, so although there’s no screen at the outer end, there’ll be one deeper in the duct, because you REALLY don’t want your 918 engine choking on bits of gravel... Since, as you’ve discovered, you can’t see it in real life, I guess it’s up to you to whether to add one; I can’t remember if the Revell kit is engineered in a way that makes that easy or a complete pain...

best,

M.

There is a mesh screen, but it is hidden quite a way inside the duct work. You can't really see it on the 1:1 unless you get right up close.
