Following on from my post the other day here are some progress/build pics of my NSR Porsche 997.

Keyed with 1200 grade wet and dry ready for primer.


Two coats of primer later, them keyed again lightly using 1200 wet and dry.


Two coats of Ford Electric/Monza blue (very similar to Porsche leguna Sega blue).



Then lashed a final top coat on to give it a nice deep shine!



I havent used any laquer as i've managed to get such a good shine with the top coat.

More to follow.

Looking good mate


I hope its super knock resistant paint, just for when I send you off the track by accident
.

The orange peel does not look to bad, Ive seen worse on 1:1 cars. The cause of orange peel is either the paints cold or your to far away when spraying. Personally I wouldnt worry about it.

Cheers Paul.

Thanks lads!


I'm not worries about the orange peel, you can hardly see it in the flesh.

Paul, you won't be able to keep up to knock me off mate!

Hi golders

No, its just 'rattle can' paint from Halfords which I think its celulouse based but I could be wrong.

I does look very orange peely on the pics but its much better in the flesh


Heres an update on the finished article;

Very nice build Stephen, very clean and neat build. I do like that colour!

May I suggest a number decal on the bonnet, maybe at an angle, and then may the Porsche logo for the rear wing?

Regards
Jon

Thanks Jon


I was hoping to get a small Porsche badge for the bonnet, I did consider test another number decal on the bonnet but it just didnt look right.

hello stephen,

nice built. fine porsche car.

the little -orange peel effect- could be caused by the diffence of materials you used for paintwork.
the primer is based on acylic pigment-binder, the blue laquer paint uses another one.

regards

Thanks claus


Both paints are suitably matched and are from the same retailer but you could be right as I painted another NSR kit (P68) and I didnt primer it and I got a much smoother, even finish and no orange peel at all.

Could one of the mods be kind enought to let me know why two of my builds have been moved from 'Scratch Builds' to 'Cars'??

I'm not a mod, but I think that assembling a complete kit of parts comes under 'cars' while fabricating your own body/chassis/driver/details comes under 'scratch building'.

Long-running debate, going back to the forum's earliest days. Currently kits = cars, but you never know what the future may hold!
