Fujimi 1/24 Porsche 917K
Here is my most recent job, one of my favorite racing cars of all time, the Porsche 917K. After the famous era of the GT 40, this model came to a period of dominance in the endurance race scene. This model in question, the “K” with a short tail, starred the famous film “LeMans” by Steve McQueen, in the iconic Gulf colors cheme. The Fujimi kit, have good quality, good fittings, but the engine bay is extremely poor in details, which gave me no incentive to keep the hood open. As the kit was already old, I chose to paint the gulf stripes instead of trying the aged decals, which in the end was much more pleasant chalenge. I used the period correct colors, lemans blue and gulf orange, with automotive clear coat for finishing. The final result was pretty cool. Hope you like it..
