Porsche 917-20 Pink Pig

I just started another 917.... this time the Pink Pig.

This is a Le Mans Miniatures model. I've never seen a pink resin before...





Body prepared and painted Tamiya X-17

Re: Porsche 917-20 Pink Pig

Jesus and Jeremy, thanks for you comments!

More work today... all decals placed



Numbers on the front and rear needed to be cut because of the Naca duct. I will apply some layers of clear coat to protect the decals then will mask and repaint black and white on these numbers.

Re: Porsche 917-20 Pink Pig

Looks Good.The leMans Minatures kits are really casted up well.My XJR-14 Gold Line has the same coloured resin as you 917 but my Lemans Minatures soft line XJR-14 is a cream coloured resin.How are the lemans decals after a few years in the box? some of mine have yellowed and a bit out of register.Nice Job
Cheers Mick.

Thanks Mick! My model is a bit old but decals are not yellow. I always store decals in Zip bags to avoid humidity.

Hello Ian! Do you mean the black material? It's a 2mm tape with a texture very similar to a real seat belt. PM me if you want some.
