It has been some time now since I updated my little (big) project. I wanted to wait till this is completely finished, but some good friends around here convinced me to post the progress I made. Thank you for your great support, Tobbe and Cristian! Ok, here is what I did: Found some great Kyosho tape (0.5mm) for doing the shutlines and fabricated a mirror for the drivers door from cardboard, chrome foil, a body clip and some hot glue. Since I had some trouble finding the last sponsor decals, I went ahead and printed them on self-adhesive printer foil on my color laser printer. Worked great! I started doing the cockpit, still not finished. And I'm still looking for some wipers. They must be attached to the right, most wipers I found (e.g. highlift) are attached to the left. Beetle wipers are too small. Any ideas? Next update will be the finished car, with some outdoor shots, I promise! ;-) No more couch posing...

Looks amazing, i've been watching this model closely! Why did you switch the locations of the PORSCHE and the SUNOCO stickers?

Thanks for your comments guys! Skottoman, great eye! In fact I didn't notice that!!!! I always took the other side of the car as reference, and it says SUNOCO PORSCHE on the right! I may fix that, since I printed some more of these decals!

Really, the entry of this car when it's finished will need to be added to my favorites, that's for sure! I'd be tempted to ask 'How much?' - It really is that good!

Thanks for the nice comments, you guys are awesome! Every one of you can do something like this, it just takes some time. There are lots of nice 60's and 70's GT cars to build!
