I put the pictures of the last small details:
I build the three lighthouses that illuminate the dorsal with a piece of photoetch which is added a drop of tin …
The handle on the fire extinguishing system and the power switch on the bonnet, made with pieces of wire …
Power switch and handle placed on the bonnet …
I put small progress this afternoon …
Spoiler ready …. The red decal “Porsche” does not match in size to the hole where to place it, so I have to design it to the exact size and print on a slide, then painted red and ready. When printing is preferable to do it with the inverted image, leaving the printed part inside the transparency, then covering with paint.
Just need to varnish with matte the black surface of the wing.
A few new advances:
Detail of the guides that were placed during the adjustment of these parts to avoid problems at the time of final settlement.
The front decal came defective, so I mask up and repainted it.
Detailing the extinguisher. Just came the cylinder that makes the bottle, so I have invented the valve and the activation wiring.
After a couple of weeks fighting with this model put pictures of progress ….
We give a first coat of white primer to check for faults and start fitting pieces , in this case the headlights.
I rework the roll cage and I check the setting.
Headlamps are sanded to adjust them closer to what would be sized according to the model.
The tires are sanded to remove the marks.
I add the ducts that are under the chassis.
Adjusting the windshield frame and windshield wipers are set to stay in place.
Another problem of this kit, tire photoetched are too narrow and slip down. I supplement sticking solder wire to stay in place.
Several pieces with the first coat of paint .
The front frame protruding everywhere, so I made a slit with a scalpel and patience, which fit the frame all around. Once painted I find that still fit …
Once set pieces, I paint with TS-26, which decanted to throw with an airbrush. The parts are mixed blue X-14 and XF XF-2 Tamiyla-1, to match the color of the decal.
