Hi guys, it's been a long time without builds for me, but with this quarantine, I've more free time so I can go back on builds :smile:

For this build I'll use a Legende Miniature 993 RWB transkit with a 993 UTmodels base.

I love the color of this interior so I'll keep it like this. But I don't know which color I need to paint the outside to match perfectly this color, if you have any idea :smile:

First work on the body, make all the hole to be able to fix the donor parts :

Test fit of all the front part after having drilled every hole for these :

Same with the rear parts :

Then, some correction on the body kit, from the front, the front fenders were like this \ but needed to look like this |, so, some sanding to correct that :

Before :

After:

The front of the fender are not round :

After :

After that, I opened every air vent in the front and I'll put some black grill behind :

And to finish, a picture of the original wheels you have with the kit, they look ridiculous and are far from the real one :

Posted Image

So last night I bought some from Tk and I think it'll upgrade the overall look just by putting these rims :smile:

Cool project! I will go with Turkis Blau. The 993 did look good in live colors. I will go with carbon fiber hood, spoilers, mirrors. Looking forward to see how it goes.

Great work as a start! I will follow your progress. This kit needs some work and you are doing very good so far. I have purchased the kit also but it is waiting in the line to start with it... Luckily i have a set of GT spirit RWB wheels but i think i will go with the turbo wing.

Hi RSIevolution, I just bought a house in the beginning of this year with a lot of work to do so the diecast are not my priority at the moment. I think I'll come back on them at the end of the year when winter will stop me in doing some outside job ;)
