I didn't see a started thread so I hope its okay I started this one.

Here is my Build #24 first completion. I am probably going to finish up a stalled race car build next.

1955 Porsche Speedster 356A racer.
Revell kit with Fujimi/Testors wheels and tires, and headlights and rock guards. Scratch made exhaust and the rear wheel openings put back to OEM shape (the kit comes with them radiused). Engine wired and detailed up.

Love that little stinger exhaust poking out the rear.

Mitch, very nice looking set of Porsche ya have there.
Cole, real stunner, love those wheels.

I am calling this one done. 
I messed around today with panel line washes and some more race weathering. 

Edit: I deleted the previous pics. I simply needed to try and fix that messed up windshield. 

I spent a couple hours in total today polishing out windshield and doing more weathering. At least an hour just on polishing out the windshield with the following wet sand paper, 
400/600/1500/2000/2400/3200/4000/6000/8000/12000 then corn startch and some ultra sound gel mixed into a paste. 

I masked off the wiper sweep in the windshield. Then spent some more time with my Iwata HP-BH air brush and black wash.

A very nice classic, Paul. Glad you stuck with it.

BTW - what is the decal on the inside, left? I don't remember having that decal in my Heller kit.

I love the subject matter, but this kit had many flaws. The highlights were the decals and engine. This really brings back memories of my youth in southern California. I grew up loving the smell of nitro methane at Lions Drag Strip and Orange County International Raceway.

Love the subject, but it's really better to build in 1/12th scale.















Thanks for following along, everyone.

I'll say my Camaro rebuild project has crossed the finish line. It's been a fun build and was glad to join in with all the great projects.

What is the real car that was modelled after? The exhaust is very interesting.
