Airfix Porsche 928 S4

Right.
WIP here
Tamiya TS-14 Black, black interior painted using Halfords Satin Black.
Not perfect as I missed a few fish eyes and rubbed through on a couple of places.
Chassis also doesn't sit perfect but again, I can't seem to find what is causing the obstruction.

Perfect!
Just some remarks. The rear wheels are seating too deep in the arches. The left windshield wiper does not touch to the surface. And you forgot about a crossbeam.

Re: Airfix Porsche 928 S4

Nice model of a somewhat forgotten car. Do the headlights pop-up? Is this the recently released (re-released?) kit?

Re: Airfix Porsche 928 S4

hmm, don't think I can fix the rear wheels now because they fitted very loose so in frustration, I added a bit of cement in there...

As for that strut bar, I clean forgot.
I actually made a start on it and have the bits in the kit box ready to finish.
Guess I'll have to get back to that.

And yes, as far as I can see from the box art, this kit is the same as the recently re-issued one (along with the regular, non-turbo, 944S - another very good kit).
Nope, the head-lights don't work... but that is a very good idea for next time seeing as the kit is no longer hard to find like it used to be.

Incidentally, where have all the 944 Turbo kits gone?
How come I am still waiting for a 968 re-issue?

Me too. I want to build most of front engine Porsche. My plans are 924, 924S, 944, 944 Turbo, 928, 928S, 928GT and 968. I have got almost all kits for this.
