Hi all since I work in a classic Porsche restoration workshop I've built a few Porsche models I've been after this one for a while (as it's one of my all time fav Porsches) 

I won't be doing it as any of the box art one but one we have in the workshop regularly the number 20 car.

I've added a few 1/24 models for scale ref.

Thanks guys

I wasn't happy with the scale of the kit supplied fuel lines (nearly double the size they should have been at just over 1mm (the actual lines are a tad over 6mm)

The only photo ref I have atm is this.

I know they are metal in the pic but back then they were clear nylon because they were lighter than metal ones but when they added more ethanol to modern fuel they started to fail (the nylon ones that is) and so modern cars have metal, anyway I've gone of subject metal ones is the only ref I have atm and the nylon ones were a tad smaller so the kit ones are definitely over scale.

I've done some weathering on the engine as well and added a few ancillary parts

OK take some lead solder squash it flat put a couple of bends in it paint one of the bent tabs satin black repeat 12 times and you have a sparkplug retainer. Take some heat shrink tube cut to 2 mm add to the ht lead add some heat and you have a sparkplug cap.

Had a bit of a disaster on the masking of this, I Sprayed white over the masking to seal it before spraying the blue but it still bled under the masking really badly. I must admit I did think this masking tape doesn't seem very sticky, just goes to show you should trust your instincts.

I've sanded it back, do you think I should remove all the blue paint or will this be enough.

Bummer. Your sanding should be enough before the repaint. One trick I have learned is to spray gloss varnish on the mask before the new paint coat. It seals the tape, and if there are any bleeds, they are of a gloss coat.
