Modellen kommer från Fujimis Enthusiast Models serie. Denna serie från Fujimi är sannolikt de mest detaljerade bilbyggsatser som finns i skala 1/25.

Jag har inte ändrat så mycket mer än försett den med tävlingsattribut - stolar, instrument mm från reservdelslådan.

The Porsche 911 kit has been issued in Fujimi’s Enthusiast Models series. This series from Fujimi offers probably the finest detailed 1/25 kits that I've seen.

My modifications were limited to adding the racing equipment - new seats, instruments etc. These came from the spare box.

Skyddsplåtarna har jag skratchbyggt. Plåtfälgarna kommer från en gammal Aurora-byggsats av en Porsche 904 och däcken har jag "skurit ner" till rätt bredd i svarven.

Lacken är en hemmablandad variant av Humbrolkulörer som sedan målats över med lite weathering.

Jag har faktiskt demonterat modellen en gång för att bättra på detaljeringen med bl a motorns tändkablar och insprutningsslangar.

The prominent lower shields were scratch-built. I "borrowed" the sheet metal wheel rims from an old Aurora kit of Porsche 904. The Fujimi tyres had to be thinned down in the lathe to fit.

I mixed the proper red shade using Humbrol enamels. The finished model has been carefully weathered with mud stains, dust etc.

After the model was finished I decided to disassemble it again to improve the engine room with ignition wires and some extra plumbing.
