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.

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;

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.
