  1. Wow. Very nice and interesting paint scheme. Did not know it before.
    Perhaps you could have thinned the paint a bit more to get a more even surface.

  2. An excellently built model and a nice paint job, Seiji!
    A very rarely seen scheme.
    Welcome aboard!

  3. Fantastic...a great build of an iconic car!

  4. Seiji, great paint job. I'm sure the original was brush painted too. So for the accuracy police you'd be in good standing. Of course Janice would be singing Oh, Lord buy me a Mercedes. My friends all drive Porsches . . .

    Two thumbs up.

  5. Something off the beaten path. I like it.

  6. That's creative!

  7. This is a wonderful first entry, Seiji @sjk
    Really colorful paint result.
    Welcome to this great modellers community.

  8. This is really nice.

    Yes, the car was hand-painted. I saw her driving it "back in the day" when she came for an interview at a publication I worked at then. The car looked really strange, parked out there on Brannan Street in the then-"warehouse district" south of Market in San Francisco.

  9. Brilliant work on this iconic Porsche, definitely liked, welcome to iModeler.

  10. Seiji: that looks great! What a good choice. How bout tackling John Lennon’s psychedelic Rolls Royce for an encore?

  11. " my friends all have Porsches I must make amends.." Far out!

    • Porsche is far away, but here in Japan, I have the MX-5.

  12. Interesting subject Seiji, well done, welcome to iModeler.

  13. Very cool rendering of Jopins car. Have seen this car replicated by another modeller, Fabrizio Fae a few years ago. Have included acouple of fotos. Another car you may wish to take on is John Lennons, Rolls Royce, also hand painted. Cheers.
