    Hi all, This is one of my many WIP projects, a RTS Jazz reshell. Like encline said in his Jazz thread, this guy is a pain in the ass. Between the rear legs, the doors, and the general lack of space in the Porsche shell itself, this guy is difficult. But, I have most the hard part finally out of the way. Just the rear section of the roof/window, and the rear wing to finish. I should be completed with the build by next weekend, then off to paint and decal up.

    Thanks for looking!

    Lol, I did use his speaker pivots for the doors if that makes you feel better.:D 

    Thanks, it was the 1/32 Matchbox kit made in 1979.

    Looks awesome! SO much better as a 935.

    Please don't tell me he's a pain tho as he's up next in my to do list altho I'm gonna reshell the Alt.....after I've finished Bumblebee in which you totally inspired me with that awesome CHUG reshell.

    I was looking at cutting the door away from the window and keeping the window attached to the roof but I like what you've done.

    after seeing and drooling over the downshift/supra reshell and now this,i have to admit....you sir are a fine craftsman.

    i marvel at some of the cuts you make,so clean and precise.
