Here is a model I've been neglecting for quite a while. Changing the body work is rather difficult.

The original car, bought as a slant nose with a lot of rust. The engine on the other hand appeared to be OK. As the front wheels hit the fenders the onwer changed them into 993 fenders.

I started with two models, a Welly 911 Turbo and a Bburago 993

This is the present status. Time to make the body smooth.

The model is now at the paintshop for its bright yellow paint.

Meanwhile I started on the interior.

The old interior, a black and dark plastic place

Now in light brown, including rear seats from the donor 911

Nice work,cutting into diecast is no fun,and working in larger scales has it's problems too. I like those side strakes also.
