RWB Porsche 964...

Post by seppuku » Thu Jan 22, 2015 3:03 pm

Hello!

Chan has been working on this project over the past month, and is and planning
to have it completed in February...

I did not commission this...

Also not certain if it's for his personal
collection, or already been reserved for another customer....

However, he will build several at the same time, so we shall see what happens... :D

It will be based on the 964 body style, with regular RWB body skirt, and 993 GT2 Spoiler... 8-)

He will cast the resin body himself, and the green one will be built first...

"RIBBIT! RIBBIT!"

Kermit the Frog in Da House.... :D :D

Here are some pictures he shared thus far...

Will be neat to see this build move along... :)

I love seeing the pictures you show us of the builds. The work is just superb and I'm pretty jealous I can't do it, well maybe I could but I'd need a lot of practice that's for sure.

It's looking good, those massive wheel arches are the best part. Nice color too.

Is he gonna put the headlight glass on it or is that how you wanted it? The rest of it is stunning 8-)

Hi Steve....

Oh, I'm sure those lens with be applied...it's a must... :D

I have no reason to think why he wouldn't... :lol:

It would look so strange and incomplete without them...

Actually, I'm not even sure he will sell me this model...

It's his first example built (the green one was originally planned), so maybe he'll keep it for his personal collection...

We shall see....:D

I'm glad he chose to build the blue one first and I hope the red one is next. His craftsmanship is second to none, it's a real treat to see the building process of his creations.

Hi Tom...I don't blame him for skipping the green and going straight for blue... :)

A rather handsome and unmistakable Porsche color.... :D

Why do I always agree on your colors choice for your models? :D
What's the kit used? Why making the rims in resin and not in metal as the master? To save time/money?

Hi Fabio...

It's not my model...still waiting for his reply whether he wants to sell it... :D

I do not know what base kit he used...

If I were to take a guess, it would be either Renaissance or Provence Moulage... :)

The rims, I do not have an answer for that either....

I would like to know myself...

He is planning on building several more, so perhaps resin was best way to save money.....

Then pass on the savings to the customers, which is always welcomed... :D :D

Hopefully, I will get some concrete answers when he completes it end of this month...:)

Doing something like this seems like it takes a lot of time. How much? I was wondering because I sort of wanted to do this a while back (although I would have cranked out a 1970s GMC motorhome). I might still do it.

What are you suggesting, Fabio?... :D

That I attempt to pick them all up? :lol:

Love the idea, though...But no money for that :) :)

For now, the only group that I can afford is in the form of a picture..Enjoy... :lol: :lol:

Hi Joe...That depends on a number of factors...

What type of kit? (resin/white metal)

Will it be full open or curbside (closed)?

How much detailing you want to put into it?

Most importantly....your choice of builder..

Many wonderful builders out there, no doubt....

However, the "artisans" are the guys that will command the highest prices, due to a reputation of producing the most exceptional pieces, that stand out from the pack... :) :)

Generally, from my experience, they start at $350 for a "basic" build...

That is NOT including the cost of the kit itself....Either you will provide that, or have the builder source it for you...

If you allow you imagination to run buck wild, the cost of the build will significantly increase...by a lot.... :D :D

It also appears he will include a black one as well.... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

I think I like the green RWB Porsche even more with black wheels :
