Hello again from Greece...
I purchase my first ever 911 kit... :tongue:
The fujimi 's 911 RS 2.7 Carrera rally version:

As ferrari fun, I don't know many things about porsche, so I need your help.
From which year this model (2.7 RS) competes in rally events... (1970?)
It's any other liveries and possible available decals?
Any reference from the real thing or wip's are very welcome...

Thanks for your time
With best regards
George

Hi George,

this Porsche version competed from 71 to 78.
The 78 version is the Martini livery, the most beautiful to me.

Here is Safari 71 version:

the 73 version is the yellow Bosch sponsored car and you have with fujimi the 74 version.


Here is 78 Martini livery:

There is a Studio27 decal set for the Martini version. not sure for all other ones for 1/24 scale.

A few references for the 74 Kühne & Nagel car:

Thanks Phil, for your fast response...
I found this decals :
http://global.ebay.com/124-DECAL---PORSCHE-911-12-PAAAY-ACOPOLIS-1970--No6/150794611350/item

But its from 1970 race... The fujimi's kit represent the same 911 edition or is different?
Thanks again...

I think this is not exactly the same car although it's the same body, it's the 2.2l engine without the duck wing of the 2.7 carrera...
That's the car that won 70 montecarlo rally.
So you may have to rebuild the rear hood flat with the grille.

Here is to me the original car of the decals version you saw on Ebay:
