Pink Pig Porsche
2018 was Porsche’s 70th anniversary and part of their celebrations was to apply two of their past liveries to the latest 911 RSR machines, namely the blue and white Rothmans scheme and the subject of this model the Pink Pig. The scheme the butchers joints of a pig carcass and was originally applied to a 1971 Porsche 917 entered in that year’s Le Mans 24 hour race.
I discovered the kit by accident while searching for something else. It is a mixed media, limited run model, 1/24 scale, with no manufacturer’s name anywhere on the box, the instructions or on the resin moldings, presumably for licensing or copyright reasons.
Anyway it went together without any great problems and I used Tamiya’s pink spray can for the colour which seemed like a reasonable match. The decals are an important part of this car and help to set it off nicely, I think. Hope you like it.
