Revell Porsche 928 1/16

Recommended Posts

Just finished this lovely Porsche in Champagne Gold - really enjoyed doing this one, maybe because of the slightly larger scale?

Still cant seem to get the clear parts to look 'clearer' by dipping in the Pledge clear.  end up looking a bit messy..

That’s a lovely model, though back in the day I always thought the 928 a bit of a bloater.  Still it’s positively svelte compared to some of Porsche’s current monstrosities!

cheers

Very good. I like the chequer on the seats, although on the real car it was well over the top! It's almost like Porsche were embarrassed by the car and decided to divert people's focus onto something really hideous!

I've always loved this big bottomed Porsche!

 

Nice painted work.

i think applying those seat decals, was the most satisfying part of the build..😂

Very nice work there, I like it. As others have said, not my favourite Porsche, but that doesn’t stop it being a nice model.

Great result, congratulations!

The seats look fantastic.

Today I saw a 928 mk1 on the street...

Unlike many of you, I think this one is my favourite Porsche, and this build has certainly done it justice. Looks like a very nice job, and judging by the quality of this build I suspect putting it next to your first build will be a good indication of the progress you've made since you started.

 

Just wondering why you felt the need to put Pledge over the windows - were they scuffed up or something? If so and you're struggling with the Pledge as you say (doesn't look bad to me), I'd suggest trying polishing with Tamiya Fine (or Finish if you can find any at a non-extortionate price) polishing compound when you do your next car and see if that suits you any better.

There are two possible reasons for that:

The Pledge you're using is aged and too thick. And/or the kit glass has waves or wrinkles in it.

You can easily strip off the Pledge with original Windex with ammonia in it.

Sand the glass from 2000 grit to 12,000 grit WET until a fine translucent haze. Pour as new a bottle as you can find of the Pledge shown (there are many types), let the bubbles settle out then dip. Stand part as vertical as possible under a cover to repel dust.

Handle the dry part by the edges only.

Thanks for that tip @Codger, I've heard lots of references to Pledge on windshields but it's nice to have it spelled out.

I have had this kit in the stash for a long time, never liked it when I opened the box. Yours came out really well makes me want to build mine.
