Zed red - brakes look good - no need for photo etch here - if you apply the skills you have on the bikes to these Porsches - they'll come out great - John

I painted and fitted the exhaust system, then I installed suspension and brakes...

Looking good; did you use the Tamiya weathering kit for the exhausts?

Re: Tamiya Taisan Starcard Porsche 911 GT2 1995 1/24

I'm trying to build the plumbing ... missing the main tube, but what about the unions?
I leave tin-colored piping or black paint?

zed red- leave the piping tin colored. It will stand out better against the black sheet metal - John

Re: Tamiya Taisan Starcard Porsche 911 GT2 1995 1/24

Why Tamiya makes the wheels with those edges on internal side???




I have removed them




After I finished the plumbing, black in a Porsche, tin in the other...




for the last seats... I painted the rear with a net to simulate the carbon fiber, for the front I used flour mixed with paint... do you like it?

That's looking like some really clean progress you're making. The engine area and suspension look really nice. I'm not sure I fully understood what you did to the wheels; did you grind the plastic flush with tyre wall? Seats came out well too.

I drew the arrows that indicate the edges of the rims that come out from the shape of the wheel.


As seen in this picture I removed those edges
