Hello guys,

Today I want to show you my Porsche 911 Sport Classic project, and to my disgrace, it is still not done yet.

It was/is my first project and I started with it in december 2009.
The car is based on the Porsche 911 Carrera Mk. II and partly on the Porsche 911 GT3 Mk. II (Later I will explain it).
This project is also based on the very great knowledge of raidou, who told me everthing I know about building unique modelcars:rock:.

Ok, I will describe the working process with the pictures and some explanations, I hope you like it.

First step: Buying a good base,
Posted Image
Second and third step: Deconstructing the car, and modelizing some new parts.
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
After many horrible and unsuccessful tries of building the front bumper, I decided to test a new alternative:
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
It took many days of working, to get the front bumper in the correct shape.
After a long time, the shape of the spoiler (in germany it's called the Enten-Buerzel) was getting clear.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Posted Image
Posted Image

Posted Image
Parrallel to the Spoiler, the Frontbumper grew and the roof got its bubbles:
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Sidebars were also built:
Posted Image
Posted Image
To gain clear borders in the Spoilers holes, I used to work with my forntbumper-method:
Posted Image
The result:
Posted Image
Constructing the rims (Fuchsfelgen), modelizng the interior and the modelwritings (made by a friend from our german forum) were next:
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
I ordered Aluminium Rings for the wheels, but my construction failed.
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

The frontbumper was going to be better and better, but one day, it brokeup and I had to build a new one  :lamende:

But now, I want to talk about the rearbumper, I had two possibilities:
Cutting holes in the original one or building a new one based on the rearbumper of the 911 GT3 Mk. II.
I choose the second way and bought some resin and sillicone. Than, I built a form for the rearbumper.

Posted Image

Posted Image
Posted Image

Et voilà, here we go with a brand new Porsche 911 GT3 MK. II rearbumper.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Looks like a Porsche 911 Sport Classic, uh?
Posted Image
Back in parts:
Posted Image
Without stiffeners,
Posted Image
With stiffeners:
Posted Image

After the first ground coat, I was very depressed, because the borders were very clear visible and later the first rearbumper broke at the exhaustpipe-holes.
So here you see rearbumper #2 after the ground coat, with charateristic Porsche 911 Sport Classic lines:

Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
The spoiler, again :rolleyes:
Posted Image
This is the current condition of the car, I thought I could finish it, before the grand summer vacation begins, but I was wrong. Now, school and lacking motivation avoid finishing the Porsche.
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

It took a long time to fix the new rearbumper and I used to widen the body of the car.
Many pictures, much text, but I hope you like it.

I told you that rear bumper is based on a Norev's 997 GT3 Mk.II   :hope:
AWESOME WORK!!!  :gaah: Can't wait for the final result ,looks great for now.

TIP: maybe you could use the GT3 MK.II tail-lights since they look way better than the standard Carrera.

LE: may i ask how did u make those photo etched emblems (911 sport classic)?

Hey,
I don't know how the emblems were made, we have a specialist over here, who can create this great emblems.

I also thought about the GT3 taillights, but I won't use them, because my GT3 needs lights, too.

WOW!

Such dedication to detail, your modeling skills and talents are extraordinary.  Plus, I think you are starting to learn one of the traits that I have lacked in my customs:  patience.

Don't let this one get away from you.  If need be, back away, tend to your other priorities, and then go back at it.  Needless to say, again from experience, no one else is going to finish it for you (there is no such thing as the "Diecast Mods Fairy"), and it will still be there when you get back to it.

Hang in there, you've got a real winner started!

 :hope:

Agreed with the other thoughts on there, your mods look great and take some time off and attack down the road with a fresh set of eyes. The ideas flow more freely when you aren't frustrated with something.

When I was modding scale model cars I had the same frustrations and would actually bounce between different projects so that I didn't burn out on one particular problem. I can't wait to see the finished model.

Wow, this is above and beyond anything I could do!  I will love to see it when it is finished, the Sport Classic is a great choice for a custom project.

I especially like the custom badge script of "Sport Classic", that is really neat that you could get a hold of that.

Hi there,

I am glad, that the car is well liked, but I think, I advanced the quality of my work with the Audi TTS, which isn't that well liked I think. :hope:

You don't need to have sorrow, that I might forget the project, but it is about having a break.
Sorry, but school is first and the time from now to mai is the most difficult time in my whole school-life.

If it is possible, I'm going to finish the car in this year, because I even have the paint here:

I have the manifested aim to be a venerable producer of unique cars on the level of raidou and he knows that and he is agreed with it :occasion14:

It's been quite a long while, since I worked on this project. But these Days, I might finish it soon.
I repainted it, and added some Decals and lettering:

At this point, only the Porsche Emblem at the trunk is still missing. At the weekend I might finish the reworking on the TTS, so I might get clear coat on the Porsche, the Audi and a third, secret project.
