That is a great paint job....and yellow can be a difficult one to spray. Nicely done

yellow paint looking perfect, fantastic

The cadmium yellow looks awesome, but I am more amazed about the flocking power that indeed gives the interior so much realism, and a nice contrast to the leather seats. Well done!

where do you buy that 3M product, looks interesting. they seem to have several others , but i have no idea what the differences are.... did you try others?
23. January 2017, 23:36
Hey Spanjaard, 3M has several products with different grades of "abrasiveness" (i hope this word exists) this particular one is the most abrasive and perfect for the first polishing step to get rid of the grinding marks from the wet sanding. For a fact, i tried several others but they were not abrasive enough for this crucial first step. But keep in mind i painted my model with a 2K clearcote which is pretty resistant and hard and this compound may be too coarse for other (1K) clear cotes. To get the surface even more shiny i used Tamiyas Finish compound (at this stage you could use any other "fine" compound). But as always in life, you should try yourself, draw your own conclusions and learn from your mistakes

Good advice, Alexander.Porsche is coming along marvellously

thanks a million Alexander
i think i may give a try to one of the thinner ones, if i can find them somewhere

Now this build is bloody brilliant! I love the yellow and it somehow suits the 911 perfect.

absolutely beautiful, really fantastic result!
may i ask where do you buy the 3M Products? they seem far more expensive around here.

Spectacular!!! It actually looks BETTER than your reference photo. If you take her outside and do some forced perspective photography it will be hard to tell it is a scale model. Standing ovation!!!

Thank You, Gordon. The paint is far from perfect and i had quite a struggle with it at some places. I haven't painted a car model in a long time and have to relearn to do it properly. I'tt take it as good practice

It's perfect in our eyes! Painting cars this good is hard work that not everyone is capable of doing.

far from perfect Alexander? looking forward witnessing you next build!

I wish my car had this paint finish. You did an outstanding job. Is it the car from this video on Youtube: "JP Performance - Zu Besuch im Porsche Museum | Teil 4" ?
4. October 2017, 18:46
Thanks ice! No it's not exactly the same Porsche though it is also from the 964 series and same colour. The one in the video is a "Turbo S", it has a different spoiler/hood and additional air inlets behind the doors. Mine is a "RS 3.8".
