Porsche Carrera GT

May 10, 2024 · in Automotive · · 14 · 99

Hi guys, it's been a while!

Here's my Porsche, built start to finish at sea.
I now have my own airbrush and compressor onboard, and have been turning the galley into a paint studio after dinner is served!

Most of this was built and painted during the Atlantic crossing recently, coming back from the Caribbean. I knew we would be bunkering in Gibraltar, so I ordered the photo etch parts and studio 27 carbon fibre from Spot Model in Malaga, and put on the finishing touches.

Photography done in the cabin under the desk light, with sheets of greaseproof kitchen paper taped to the wall for a back drop.

Thanks for looking! 😁
