This is an older build from about 5yrs ago. Wheels are Spaz Stix Ultra Chrome. It started life as the street version, but the kit comes with all the race bits. I stole the decals from the Revell Germany 926 Porsche kit. The window install was botched up pretty good. I have since switched to an ultra clear adhesive for windows.

Great job Curt. The weathering is spot on.

Thanks guys.

The weathering is a bit heavy in spots but it was my first go at race weathering. The streak on the drivers side happened by mistake. I may clean it up one day.

YES!  Underside view looks totally cool.  Luv the "dirtied up" look, especially on the wheels, which are often left clean on otherwise post race paintjobs. Overall, it's a winner!

Lovely 'muckied up' job. I'm also taken with the attention to details on the metals underneath. Great job.
