Something for the weekend, sir?
At the beginning of this year I started a Porsche project, but, like many such ideas it has fallen by the wayside, however, here's one finished model, Tamiya's 1/24 scale kit of the 911 GT2 Club Sport road version. In 1995 Porsche decided to manufacture two versions of this car, one a pure competition version, a rear wheel drive 3.6 litre air oooled V6 with 450 bhp for group two racing, and a road version, slightly de-tuned to 430 bhp, complete with air conditioning and a decent audio system. The idea being that the car could be used during the week for commuting to work and raced at the weekend.
The kit is standard Tamiya, a kerb side model with some decent interior detail, and, naturally, went together without any problems. I finished it with Tamiya's spray can yellow. I don't usually model road cars but I couldn't get hold of a kit of the competition model, I think this one looks racy enough though. Thanks for looking, George.
