Porsche 911 Turbo by GeneralMechanics
Porsche 911 Turbo
My first commissioned car model, the Revell 1:24 scale Porsche 911 Turbo (1987 model). Completed finally and sent to its rightful owner who is very happy with the results.
Not to say it's a perfect build, but give me a break, it's the first car I've built in over 15 years!

Going into this project I could see I was dealing with an older model kit, reissued in 2012. It had some parts warping to the point that I ended up having to use three types of glue, ranging from Mr Cement Deluxe, Tamiya Extra Thin, and Zap-A-Gap, which in their own ways made me have to go back and fix painting errors.

The color is blue 'according to the box' but I mixed together Testors Model Master Acrylic Arctic Blue Metallic with Ford/GM Blue and French Blue. It has that rich matte color with a subtle metallic look that shines through the gloss clear coat.

built by me, 2015! (April--October)
I recently heard there is a month dedicated to not shaving. I didn't know Every Day was on the calendar.
Cut hay, feed cows. tedder hay, feed cows. deliver calf, feed cows. rake hay, feed cows. bale hay, feed cows. move hay, feed cows. get feed delivered, move hay, feed cows. go get cattle chute.

and that's my week so far...

Greetings visitors and friends of my DeviantArt Domain!

I send this journal entry to say that while in my period of minimal activity on DA, I keep a more regularly updated photo-journal segment on my Google+ Page. I'm not retiring from DA, it's just easier with G+ since it is built into my cell phone and is more rapidly available to post material online.

...or I'm just that one guy who continues to refuse to getting a Facebook page. 

Don't judge me, it's not like I've got a Zune. 

The address link is

"Apparently I'm popular there because people like my pictures of Gundam Models, Baby Cows, and Broken Tractor Parts!"

There you will see some in progress work of mine that I will later mirror here and in future model reviews on CollectionDX!
