Looks great. Is it too late to ask for a copy ? I would like to get one, if still available. Thanks.

Will add also you. Soon will send a confirmation mail to all. Production still in progress and I hope I can satisfy all.

Re: Porsche 997 GT3r 2012/2013 1/24

thank you, my friend

here the production under inspection. In those days I am deadly busy with many different activities, but will contact all the modelers with the reservation and I think I can satisfy all.
The cast is incredibly fine and thin. I have to tape the body cause I am scared, being so delicate it can be slightly deformed during the expedition. Parts as the windshield frames are exactly as Fujimi kit, so the stability of all that part will come from the windshield itself.
In the month of August I will probably go on with my model, but unfortunately, during the production, my master was severely damaged. Nothing dramatic for me, and I already fixed all. Easy when all comes from my hands













and here the differences on fujimi 997 original body

Re: Porsche 997 GT3r 2012/2013 1/24

one of the negative parts of this production adventure was my new skilled caster had no mercy for my master part. He didnt get i wanted to SAVE my model, and so many body parts were damaged, also heavily in some parts.
Of course when you are the maker of all this is not such big issue to fix it properly but it takes time.

The first batch of my cars went completely sold out. I wanted to have some more due to the huge requests I had, but unfortunately the silicone is already broken (seems I worked too thin for those kind of resin models) and so in the next October I just will get few more copies, many of whom are already booked and paid.

So now I want to go on with my own project. I currently have the decals to make 3 models. The first 2 ones are dmc sheets for the black Nurburgring haribo car, and for the nice Falken vehicle. It is interesting to study a little more the Falken car, cause seems she had different configurations during her racing life (thanks to Alessandro Prini for this nice pic encolsed)



here she is with the late wide body panels but anyway still the early version in the exhaust area, still fully closed..

Re: Porsche 997 GT3r 2012/2013 1/24

and I also found the PE parts done by Hoibby design time ago for the slimmer version of this 997 gt3r



where they also provide a very nice serie of front grilles



even if I suspect those ones are referred to the inner part that in the original fujimi plastic body are moulded together. It is interesting anyway to note , for example the haribo evo had both the variants of the vents mounted on
Here clearly present:


and here not so much...


so probably it is anyway a part that must be reworked.
On the car I spotted at autorlando they lok quite damaged


grilles shape is anyway that..


so, the number to search for HD pe is this one








they are useful also for the rear wing mountings.

Another issue to be considered is about wheels. Fujimi ones are not mistaken but they dont convince me so much. They seem not so well casted, specially in the central bolt. Many cars used theme anyway..







they become incredibly better after some hours of carefully cleaning (mostly on plastic edges).






I think anyway I will choose something a little more "german style"..









cause despite I already have 2 dealcs...I want probably make the manthey racing car from Spa..
and my big friend AndrewZ is already nearly there with the decals..

Re: Porsche 997 GT3r 2012/2013 1/24

so time to go with some paint here. I have many lyveries i want to do, at least 3 for now (reson why i save some of my copies for myself lol)
So here I will start with the falken car. Very famous and so beautiful with her strange colors. To match decals I had to choose a slightly different blue from what i think is the more correct, but thats it...here she is

decals are from DMC decals, a danish company. They also make the Haribo decal for the same car.
