Revell Porsche Speedster


Recommended Posts

I finally finished this one a few months ago.  There's a thread in the WIP section showing some of the major mods.  Trying to make a presentable model from a Revell kit originally issued in the '60's is like putting lipstick on a pig.  Fit and finish were pretty lacking, but I'm happy to call it done.

Major mods included reworking front and rear wheel openings, narrowing the kit tires, scratch building the drinker side interior door panel.  3d printed hub caps, front turn signal lenses and head light lenses.  The windshield was one of the most challenging things I have attempted to date.  The windshield frame is made from styrene sheet, cut and bent and then finished with Alclad.

Paint is Alclad black base coat with Tamiya rattle can clear.

Little known fact:  the Porsche factory used giant cats for security in the '50's and 60's, hence the giant cat hairs in the interior photo!
