Revell 1/25 Porsche 911 conversion to a GTS

Recommended Posts

Hi all my boss asked me to build this kit for him but as a GTS

First thin on my list (there is so much on the list) 

The kit is for a 6 spark engine(the GTS was 12 spark) so 12 HT leads and 2 coils, so cut the first coil off the fan shroud (not mounted there on a GTS) and cut the distributor off to make room for the new 12 spark one.
Here is what the kit supplies

So i cut it off

Heres a start the new distributor

Still got to add the 2 coil wires but OK for a start.

Luckily we have the car he wants it modeled on at work (so no shortage of reference pics)

(There is so much to change)

Hi all I don't have the colour for this yet but I wanted to check i had the flaring right (which in primer you cant) so I sprayed the only quality colour I had on it just to check the finish (this was 2 pack paint so not full gloss) i just wanted an idea

Started on the interior (could be a problem here as the restoration at work hasn't got this far) its quite interesting as to why these things take so long to complete (this restoration has taken 4 yes so far) reason being it was 1 of 4 cars built to this specification the other 3 no longer exists so the restoration keeps going on hold till the correct parts appear which can take months or even years to turn up.
