A couple of weeks ago I got a 49400 30th anniversary Porsche body shell for a cheap price with all parts needed like rear spoiler, mirrors and decal sheet.
Then one day I had the idea of building a black Porsche of the 1/10 shell. YES!...
But how do I get the decals in the right size? Umm....
I contacted Lee from TC who prints the vintage decals. I told him my idea and he said, yes he can print the Black Porsche decal sheet in a bigger size. He said, that the windscreen logo is 99mm. I measured up the windscreen of the 49400 – it is 117mm long from corner to corner.
So the 1/12 decal sheet of the Black Porsche has to grow bigger to 117%.
About two weeks ago I got the decal sheet from Lee and I started to paint the 1/10 body black. I put on some decals of the 49400 sheet, like the bumper-endings, lights, wipers, logo and then started with the special decal sheet.
A few days ago I finished the body and put it on my chassis. I changed the wheels in HPI vintage 5-spoke wheels and tires. They are no Tamiya but I think they fit better. I look forwar for these new HPI Cup Fuchs wheels :-)
Many thanks to Lee for his professional and kind help!!!
What do you think about this version of the Black Porsche? Does anyone already had this idea?
