Tamiya Taisan Starcard Porsche 911 GT2 1995 1/24

Hi everyone, I have not written here in Motorsports because, until now, I have done only motorcycle models.

For my first car model I decided to start with a classic Tamiya 1 / 24, Porsche 911 GT2 1995 Taisan Starcard. This is a curbside model and should not be too complicated.
For a great start I will start two models of Porsche, one for me and one will be a gift for my brother.



This is the package contents...

I started working on the body. Panel lines scribed, imperfections cleaned, hooks bonnet eliminated, fenders drilled... A first pass of grey primer and I moved on...
then I will give white primer...

without photo reference it's very difficult to work...
using the cover box like reference I modified the wing by inserting a small net...

Nice work, looks like you're making clean progress. I've got this kit on hold so will follow your build closely for inspiration.

More reference: https://picasaweb.google.com/carslegend/Porsche993GT2

I suggest that you remove the connectors/switches in front of the windshield before you paint the body. They are not very realistic in the first place, and they would look absolutely shapeless under a few layers of paint.

What a great start! I love watching double-projects like this, each car ends up with it's own characteristics and "personality".
