  • Martini Porsche take two

    Another Porsche added,

    Brass and Lego chassis
    Mineabea in a midship angle winder set up
    Lego wheels
    Homecast urethane tires
    Laser printed decals
    Developed a better technique for hand painting around the rear fender flares.

    Windshield is a big fail. Will have to redo this and flush mount it

    I Flush mounted the windshield, and thought I would see what it looked like with blacked out rims

      another nice one, Dan!
      Stripes look great!

      Artin body shell with front extension? No, can´t be right or did you do something with the front lights, too?

          Shell was a mass produced slot car shell from an unknown source. I was given two of them as a gift. I added the rear wheel well extensions and fashioned the front valance out of styrene.

          I could not see see anything on the shell that identified a manufacturer. I think Randy sent these along to me awhile ago as he was clearing out some 143 project stuff he no longer was interested in.

          During this Covid shutdown I spend a lot of time building cars. Passes the time and focused my thoughts on things I have control of. Luckily for me I have always been an active “ honey do” participant, and the list is always manageable. Being retired, other then isolation from my grand kids, every day is pretty much what I am used to, other then filtering through all the bad news the media like to focus on.

          Stay well and wash your hands a lot!


          Thanks for the comment.

            Re painting

            Rather then hand brush the strips directly on the car, I used my seat belt technique. This involves laying acrylic paint down on a silicone matt.

            Once dry you can peel the paint from the matt. I then cut the dried paint into thin strips that I can place on the car. Once everything is in place, a light spray of windex will, activate and soften the paint . Let it sit 20 minutes and the gently press and the paint will flatten out smooth.

              Added cooling intakes on rear windows, and a little more wheel details
