So the nerdy Porsche 914 scores a date with the rockstar 918 Spyder and this happens...
I love all things Porsche. I used to own a 1:1 914 and had grand plans to install a small block Chevy in place of the 4 banger. As with most of my projects, it never came to fruition. I purchased the Revell kit with the intention of replicating what I could never get off the ground 1:1. Then Revell releases the 918 Spyder kit and what you see in progress below was born. The undercarriage is from the 918, quartered and reshaped to match the 914 body. The interior and motor are from the 918. This mock up is sitting on EightyOne's iForged Equip V3s, but I plan to use the 918 kit rims. Finished body color will be Tamiya's Light Green X-15, similar to Porsche's Acid Green. I'd use Gravity Colors' Acid Green, but am currently sans airbrush. I've already purchased Scale Motorsport's clear carbon fiber decals and will make the most of the bright green. The 918 rims will be black. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics from a dimly lit workbench. So much work left to be done!
This shot shows the incorporation of the 918 fuel filler cap on the targa structure.
918 front bumper narrowed to fit the 914 body.
Still have some fit issues with the 918 dashboard.
