So this is long over-do. I've had all the pieces but have just not been building.

I have a thing for the Singer Porches, specifically, the interiors so I'm going to try an theme this in that direction.

I got the seats from clearly scale, and some ScaleMotorsports decals for the interior.

Some quick mock-up for wheels.

And I knew I had a spare Porsche dash I'll use the extra right hand drive dash the Revell Germany kit comes with.

prob. an easier method but as the dash mounts to the body, not the interior tub, I wanted to maintain the mounting points.

Still a long way to go, was bummed to find my Tamiya putty solidified, must have been a pin-prick hole in the container.

Not much progress but recently purchase a couple sets of Orange Wheels Euro wheel. What a surprise to find that each kit comes w/8 wheel lips. 4 narrow, 4 wide or you can choose to go staggered fitment.

I decided to mess around w/the extra wheel lips to see what I could do w/them.
The wheels from the Revell MKI kit are near perfect. I trimmed the small inner lip so the Orange Wheels lip would sit flush.

I then went through nearly all my kits looking for barrells that would work and found these from the Revell/Monogram Acura NSX kit.

I then used Evergreen Styrene strip to fill the center void so the tires would not sink in the center.

Lousy spray job and color so am stripping them to redo.
