so after doing the street rod i fancy doing another car, pulled this out of the stash

Tamiya's venerable Porsche 911 GT2

i did this a very long time ago and as i remember it went together with no drama, back then i did it in a metallic grey, this time i plan on doing it in a colour, not sure what yet, possibly red, maybe electric blue.......it dosnt come with any number plates but the spares box will come up with something

Hi Paul
A nice choice. Decals for seat belts. Interested to see how that works.

Looking great. Are the seat belts some kind of ribbon? Or small shoelace?

unfortunatly this is on the back burner for a while

had a shade mismatch on parts, even though everything thing got the same number of coats

so its going to get the paint stripped and started again..........will be red though since the chassis is complete and red!

That's a shame. When we hit that problem at work we can use the old excuse of plastic taking paint differently to metal (and there's actually some truth in that) but I don't think that will cut it here...

I hope the respray goes well.

Very nice example of a club racer. These 'Whaletails' were monsters in their day. Very fast, and not for the wannabes. Would swap ends in a heartbeat. PaulE
