I think I'll toss my Fujimi 928 in here.
I upgraded the wheels to the 18" RUF's. I felt the gold 5 spokers that came in the kit were, well, they sucked....Big Smile
The car was painted Champagne Gold Metallic and cleared with Pearl Clearcoat.

Very, very sweet build Slabbedask! This has to be my all time favorite era of Porsche! I need to get one of these kits.

Although I prefer the older Porsche's, I must say that those were beautiful models.
Personally though, I have a soft spot for the old 356's. And so I'm a big fan of Fujimi's 356 range in their Enthusiast Series. Most of them are rereleased these days, but they're actually from the mid 80's. I think these kits match almost anything made today in detail and accuracy. You just have to build one to belive it! Here are some pictures of my 356B Cabriolet, the only one I've built so far, but the rest is waiting...




This model fell from my shelf some years ago and needed a bit of restauration. The hood and engine lid have a little fit problem after that. And notice they've misspelled the name on the glove compartment lid...

Recently I built this pair of Italeri Porsche 911 cabriolets. Pretty good curbside kits, better than Fujimi and inferior to Tamiya, with the notable exception of the very nicely engraved interior.

They were both painted at the same time, both interiors built at the same time. The white one was rushed to finish as an Xmas gift for a friend who did a virtual build up of one just like it on the Porsche website. Soon after one arrived at his dealership. It was gorgeous. It didn't sit long. The blue one is painted Tamiya pearl light blue and was finished this past weekend. I like the white model much better, the blue scheme looks better on a Buick than on a Porsche apparently. Rims on the white one were cribbed from a Maisto diecast, rims on the blue one were taken from a Revell Modena Spider and it's front end was lowered about .060 so it would sit better. The kit rims were ditched as they were too small in diameter.

Wow, that's awesome looking. Waht's the paint type / colour??


I'm not sure of the color name, it's not written on the can but it's color number GM7217 from Plasti-kote, automotive spray, then cleared with the plasti-kote clear.

Hope this helps some....

Thanks! Good eye, yes the GT3 rims are from the Tamiya Modena. They were on my Boxster, but then I got another GT3 and wanted to see what those would look like on the Boxster, since it has GT3 body parts. The Modena rims are really similar to Porsche rims used on newer 911's. The tires in the GT3 and Modena kits are the same, the wheel sizes are the same as well.

The orange is Black Gold Tangelo pearl.

Currently working this weekend on a pair of Italeri 1998 911 cabriolets. One is an Xmas gift, the other I'm building for me. I'm attempting to save some time building two at once, the only differences will be rims and the paint color, the interiors will be identical.

Excellent Porsche's Bob, I love the orange one. Is that the wheels from the 360 Modena?
What color orange? (if you don't mind my asking)
Very nice models.......

Nice work, Eric!

It's not terribly exciting, but here's my Tamiya 911 Carrera. It's a straight-from-the-box buildup:
