    Joel, I have to hold off on displaying the build...until after we present it to our LCol for his departure ceremony.

    Joel, Those intakes...my experience with Hasegawa, Kinetic, Testors, Italeri and Revell get it wrong on one way or another. So this one has good shape and like the end result. So the devil I chose to get to know is the Kinetic version. After a few builds, I find it easy enough now to get it right. Although I'm not going to argue with you on the engineering side of things. Thanks for the compliment, before I attach the two halves, i should have pics in the next day or two, I added some PE (louvers, screens, chaff/flare boxes) and will be priming-to-test for imperfections and security. LOL, I also have a photo journal on a 1970 Monte Carlo build. I will be placing in the appropriate forums section probably by the weekend.

    Before After Dry fit...much better, less putty and sanding after.

    Now lets look at the rear section as I review the over all fit. I don't like that.

    Intakes looks good to me..as my dad would say "good enough for the girls I go out with"

    Little fill, little sanding, done. I used AV Plastic putty first to take up the major gap. Then used Mr. Dissolved Putty in smaller amount after.

    As you can see I placed the intake lip on a small angle forward to eliminate the gap that could have existed between the intake lip and the boundary layer separator. It is easier to repair the gap behind the intake, rather than in front.

    Evening/Morning/Good day folks, I'm back and made some progress this evening. Working on the intakes Test fitting, then glued the intake in-place, but only placed glue at the bottom.

    Fujimi 1/24 scale Martini Porsche 917 K

    Joel, I have my Boss 302 out, your tempting me. Maybe I can work it in between my Hornet builds. I too have been watching many Utoob builds with the clear gloss finish. One thing that really surprised me is the Mr Color Super Clear III thinned to 1: 2.5 and in some cases up to 1:3. As for the orange peel finish, I might just plug away at a few practice pieces first to master the mile deep gloss. Dammit Joel...it's going to be an OOB build except some flocking on the floor.

    Hi Joel, funny as in coincidental, I am completing a 1970 Monte Carlo build and am trying to perfect the very glossy finish I have seen other modelers can create, I am no where near this process yet and want to get there soon as I want to build my car (2013 Boss 302) soon. I find building in different subjects only expands ones skills in the modelling arena. I will be following you once again my friend and also a I placed a link for the 917K (on my wish list in Amazon). Not sure if it is the same as you referenced, but I do like the look if it and remember my uncle had this kit in his display when I was very young. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00QW7YDE4/?coliid=I1S6SUIO4P2EHC&colid=2F4YTSAJPI4VE&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it Cheers

    Evening Folks, I have updated this forum of the links for the photos. They should all be working now. I am going to try and get a few things done over this weekend and hopefully share with y'all. After Sunday I have to leave the country for a couple weeks, will be back and continue! See you soon!!
