DamDesign Bloody 356

I modded a 1:24 Welly Porsche 356 spider into a... Well... Eeeeerm... A rat... :D

Why "bloody" in the name? Because I have permanently damaged my left index finger while trying to cut out the rear seat... I've cut straigh through a nerve and since then I haven't been able to feel a good portion of my fingertip...

OOB:

That is one cool conversion. I love the welded doors. And everything else, for that matter. Sorry you had to injure yourself but the results are worth it!

Cool. The seat belts are a hoot!

Sorry you suffered for your art.

Thanx, guys! :D

Yeah, the finger paid the price, but I'm not worried much as long as I can squeze the brakes on my BMX and MTB and play my drums :D

Steve: Hoping for the best ;) My father had his left middle finger smashed during an accident about 30 years ago and the feeling has never returned 100%... Mine wasn't smashed, but "only" cut and hopefully it'll be back in busines soon ;)

The welded doors are something I have never done before and I'm not too happy with the result, but I'll live with it... ;)

Thanx, David :D To be honest, I could've done the welds way better, but this was my first attempt of making welds with Tamiya 2-component putty. Also, the gaps between the door and the body on this die cast are the size of Grand canyon, so the putty kept slipping into the gap, which gave me hella problems... Will be better next time ;)
