so after doing the street rod i fancy doing another car, pulled this out of the stash
Tamiya's venerable Porsche 911 GT2
i did this a very long time ago and as i remember it went together with no drama, back then i did it in a metallic grey, this time i plan on doing it in a colour, not sure what yet, possibly red, maybe electric blue.......it dosnt come with any number plates but the spares box will come up with something

Nice. Looks like there's a few extra bits and bobs for the spares box when you're finished.

Lovely kit

A set of gold centered wheels should make that red paint pop nicely. Porsche 911 GT2 1705482731

most screens these days are sealed in with black butyl so the black surround hides the metal bits.....take a look next time you go out

Great progress! That body colour is something else, a 10 second view left vivid afterimages in my eyes. I really like the sharpness of the contrast between the red interior and the white roll cage as well.

unfortunatly this is on the back burner for a while

had a shade mismatch on parts, even though everything thing got the same number of coats

so its going to get the paint stripped and started again..........will be red though since the chassis is complete and red!
