Built from a Tamiya kit , Tamiya paint ( Mica Silver TS76 ) .Black trim around windows is a bit rough as my old hands shake a bit these days . A great kit to build .

That's pretty sweet!   I have to assume it's a race car that's retired to do track time.  The paint job looks great.  I also sympathize about doing the window frame/gasket, one of my challenges.  Does the kit have an engine?

Very nice paint and stance. Did you lower it?

I did not lower it , built straight from the box , it is the road going version (kit 24247 ) of the race car , no full engine , only underside detail . Thanks for the nice comments guys .

Sweet build mate!

Stance and wheels make it look mean.

Awesome, clean build!  I have wanted to build one of these for the longest but can never run across a kit locally or at any hobby store...looks like I need to start searching ebay, lol.

That's the out-of-box ride height? Awesome. 

 

What colour did you go with for the interior? Compliments the silver really well. And the dark finish on the wheels is a great choice too.

Nice job Bruce, colour looks good.  I mask and airbrush the black trim with Tamiya X-18. Its a lot more work but the lines come out nice and clean. Tamiya kits rule.

Nice Porsche, Bruce! Looks like you did a great job on a nice kit. I’m with everyone else, love the stance and the color combo!

Fantastic Porsche! The only Tamiya kits I’ve done were a few military models years ago. I’ve always been a fan of 911’s and after the last few cars I’ve done from Mpc, AMT etc, I’m thinking a Tamiya kit would be good medicine. Great work on yours, love the red interior and the wheels too. 👍👍

The interior is Tamiya Oxide Red primer , Tamiya TS49 (bright red) and Testors Dullcote . Thanks for the nice comments .

Very nice work. Im surprised how low it looks straight out the box. Tamiya Silver really suits too.
