Not bad at all Andy. So how does he breathe?

There's a small gap between his nose and the inside of the helmet Jeroen.....whoops I can't believe I've just said that 🤣🤣👍

Yep I agree and maybe it's just me but in the second pic it does actually look like he's enjoying himself....mind you I don't blame him i wish I was behind the wheel of this beast 🙂👍

I usually don't like figures in car models but you've done such a nice job of painting him I guess he can stick around (I bet you've already superglued him to the seat anyway... !! 🤣

Hiya Keith actually he's not glued in there yet and it's a bit of a game getting the poor chap in and out hence why I chopped his lower leg's off 😳. It's the first figure I've painted tbh and I quite enjoyed it especially when if it didn't work out I could just bin him. The shell will be ready for work tomorrow so hopefully i can get this build finished in the next couple of days 🙂👍

The shell looks gorgeous Andy and the figure too,.  The bits of dust landing on the shell in the wet gloss takes me back to spraying my cars in the drive then the garage and a fly would land in the wet paint.  I made the mistake of trying to get one put once, never again as ended up having to repaint the panel!!!

Great work on this

Thanks Chris the driver figure was just a bit of fun whilst I waited for the shell to dry properly. As for the bits of dust in the clear coat well I just accept them as part of the process mate and tbf there aren't too many anyway 🙂👍

And so the journey ends I'm happy to say the Porsche 935 is finished and I'm very happy with the results. Here's a pic of the finished build with more to come shortly in the rfi section
