Here is a build I did a while ago to plug a gap in my collection of Le Mans winners. I was always a bit frustrated that Slot It did the 1983 and 1989 winners only in box sets. Getting a white kit and building this one was a no-brainer being a single colour. Not sure the Porsche would be as easy.

Nicely packaged parts.

The car comes like this – lack of instructions was a bit frustrating.

Up to this point, things were going really well. Paint and decals went on nicely.

There were a few flaws in the clear coat – I could do a better job now, but it came out OK.

Thanks guys. The shady photography hides some sins.

I used Pattos decals. They blistered when I put red Microsol on them. Followed by Tamiya clear rattle can.

I now only use blue Microset, and Humbrol clear in an airbrush, and 95% don't have any problems with them. But I couldn't tell you if the problem was with the materials or my technique.

Nice work Brett, I bought the same original car from a mate who split up his 3 car set. I changed the rear wheels also as they ran larger 19 inch rear wheels on them and I thought it looked better set up with them and an offset pod.

Need to catch up with you and some of the other Wollongong guys at some stage too.
