    rts JAZZ, matchbox 935 1/32 scale Porsche model kit... and time..a lot of it....lol...

    paint: White with a purple/blue pearl, metallic blue and red..

    thanks for checking it out...

    and HUGE Props to Wheeljack for inspiring my first Jazz re-shell last year and I hope this one can stand in the same field as his...

    LAST UPDATE:
    THIS IS THE MOST DIFFICULT RE-SHELL..... The rear legs have so many individual parts, and the fact that the roof slope brings the legs at an angle are really difficult...

    Got that some model kit sitting on my shelf waiting to do this. They haven't been released in RI yet so mine will have to wait but in the meantime I can drool over this!

    Where can I find 1/32 scale model kits? I haven't seen much of anything in that size. I want to reshell a whole bunch of classics into the right alt modes.

    Damn Encline, Jazz looks so amazing already! I'm surprised you were able to get a hold of him so soon to do this considering he just came out a couple weeks ago. (I still haven't seen him in stores yet.) I cant' wait to see how he turns out, which will be awesome of course.

    I just googled the kit because I was curious too. I saw one on ebay for like 25 bucks!

    Looks great so far! Too bad the kit is not the exact model as Jazz, but that just a minor nitpick. What're you doing for the decals?

    Thanks guys!! Well, I gotta thank Peaugh for the hook-up early.

    Thanks bro...fortunately, this kit is is in sections, so I didn't have to remove the roof from the doors....

    like butter..I mean...a knife..

    I just went on eBay...even some local hobby shops have some 1/32 kits...

    Well, living at the farthest place away from anywehere in the states, I got them from my bud Peaugh...


    lol...I have been planning this for almost a year(for some cool clients)....then changed everything when it got in hand...haha...

    fo shizzle....thanks man....

    thanks fellas!
    Yeah....they almost hit a homerun..but darn licensing issues..lol....

    Thanks dude....this will be the Igear "music man" version of your MP Jazz..lol..well, not that good though...

    I will be painting as much as I can. The stripes for sure will be painted, plus as much as I can....I have a vinyl plotted at my disposal so anything I can paint will be painted. The, depending on how much I can paint, I will more than likely be getting some from ABTX23......


    OKAY GUYS, I UPDATED THE FIRST POST WITH THE MODEL KIT IF ANY OF YOU WANT TO TRY THIS...
