Hey guys.

Things have been kind of quiet lately in terms of builds. I have several projects in almost-ready-for-paint stage that I really don't care about any more.
I was spending zero time on mods over the past couple months, but made the trek over to Costco for the annual haul, and made sure to grab a 997 Carrera.

I had it pulled apart the day I got back home, and stripped the day after that.

Uh Ohhhh....


This will take some work to pull off, but I think the classic GT2 is key to the look.

Posted Image


A little PS work. More than likely not the final color. And definitely not this two-tone vibe goin' on either.

Posted Image


Horsing around. These aren't the wheels for this project. (they're for an NSX)

Posted Image


A tube and a half of SteelStik later, we have some RWB fenders.

Posted Image

Posted Image


Some initial filing.

Posted Image

Posted Image


A little more for some side skirts.

Posted Image


Need to pull up the sides a bit.

Posted Image

Posted Image


Kinda wingin' it on the front end here.

Posted Image


So, Not all that far along. figure I'd get the thread started, if anyone is interested in another one of these things.
Goal is to get it all done before the cold weather comes back.

More RWB projects, perfect. You should make one for each iteration of the 911 (If you haven't considered it already). Now that would be an incredible line up!

Watching on eagerly! I'm doing something similar to a 996, but I have not touched it in a while. Once the school holiday starts I'll be back on mine :D

I have, and there's 2 things holding me back. First, I have a real problem with the 996. Second, between parts, supplies and paint, these things aren't cheap at all, and they take a lot of time and a lot of airborne dust in my single cube of my studio.

I'm gonna be using another set of the RWB works from Legende Miniatures.
Main putty for the fenders is JB Weld SteelStik. Secondary finer detail putty is the yellow Milliput.

Thanks a lot, gentlemen.

Here's a quick update.
Got the parts in from Phillipe at Legende. Just the spoiler and wheels this time around. and a window banner. He threw in the RWB decal for the rear spoiler as well, which is awesome, cause I forgot to order it.

I cut out some of the material from the stock engine cover, and most of the bottom half and some of the front edge of the resin part.

Posted Image

Posted Image


Then slabbed on some 'multi-metal epoxy' an inferior product to SteelStik, but it was worth a shot. It worked.

Posted Image


First round of the file.

Posted Image


Sittin on the actual wheels. The surface blending on the spoiler looks really awkward here.

Posted Image


Filed down a bit more. Looks 100% better. This was actually a lot easier than I anticipated.

Posted Image


Got some material on the front lip. Still lots of massaging and finesse work to do, but the design is pretty much wrapped at this point, aside from some styrene risers to separate the cutouts.

Posted Image

Posted Image



Thanks for looking.
