    My Porsche 911 GT1 98 LeMans winner

    I am now all but done with my white kit. The parts ended up not hard to figure where they go but a little tricky on sequence. The kit comes with two sets of headlight covers so those who don't want the small lights just in front of the mirrors can fill in the holes and use the set without those lenses.

    The Pattos decals went on well and were not brittle at all. But Pattos left out one IBM logo. I went through my scrap decals and found one on the Revell 1/24 Porsche 911 GT1 sheet and althoug it is a little too small I used it (on the rear deck). The decals were pretty sharp considering the transfer method he uses.

    Painting the inside of the body white worked out well and after placing the decals I sprayed the whole body with Testors Metalizer Sealer leaving a nice glossy finish. As of now I have not painted the mirrors but that is the only task remaining, other than putting it on the track.

    I also included a couple of side by side shots with the Fly model for comparison

    The metalizer sealer did nothing adverse to the decals, ie no running or cracking. After about 24 hrs. it cured and sealed the decals to the surface.

    Testors Metalizer Sealer question

    ModelerBob
    How does the Testors Metalizer Sealer interact with the decals? Did you get any kind of reaction from the spray?

    Inquiring minds wanna know

    maddick1943 sorry for the delay, the orange EB fit fine in a sidewinder setup. You may have to solder the aft motor wire so it comes off the back of the motor if you like a lot of pod float.

    A full size boxer motor fits without any issue.

    First an excellant job on the car. I saw the question on the inline set, but I was wondering is there room in there for the sidewinder setup??

    I ask as I'm trying to set one up and because of motor restrictions It might be hard to adapt a suitable motor to the anglewinder pod...and still comply with the rules !!!!

    I'm betting there is not, but I await your thoughts....

    Motor pod note.

    I have verified that there is room under this body for an inline motor pod for those of you like me that prefer that set up.

    Later today I plan to find out whether this body has enough clearance to take an inline motor pod. It should as the Fly version has an inline configuration but it looks close. Has anyone else tried to install an inline motor pod yet?
