Porsche 914-6

Not my best work, but this kit is notoriously difficult to pull together. The old Revell Porsche 914-6. I veered from factory stock a bit, I hate the factory wheels, so I added a set of BBS wheels, and changed the paint up a little to reflect a restored stock vehicle.

Nice! Well done....

Oh very nice! I haven't seen that kit in years.

Cool. Nice job. I test drove one when I was 18 and almost bought it but my dad wouldn’t cosine. Probably best. So the kit was challenging?
Thanks,
John

Thanks. Trouble areas are at final assembly. Front and rear fascia fit issues and engine lid-body-deck lid interface. Balance is pretty good.
