78 Porsche Carrera

Posted (edited) · Report post

This is a project I had in my head for a while and after looking

at this photos I decided to give it a try

this is what I want to get at.

This is what I did, I had an old 935 Tamiya body laying around.

With hard massaging I think this will work.

The kit I am working on is the Revell Germany 78 Carrera.

It come with engine detail, The interor needs work, but I will replace the seats and with a scratch build cage it can be a decent ride.

all finished with the boby work,...now is ready for the first coat of white paint.

also started to do some work on the interior. basic stuff like getting rid of the back seat

and had to add panels because with the new quater panes I installed you could

see thru that big gap, the inside of the car. Will make a roll cage and use modern racing seats.

also started to put together the engine. will modify a few things like taking out the stock intake and

making it look like a aspirated racing engine. will trash thohe tiny pipes with hand made headers.

here a few pics of my progress and pics of ideas for this project.
