One of the kits I’ve been looking for for a long time is the 1/8 Porsceh 911 by either Eidai Grip or Entex.
It all started with the pictures from a secondhand website, the add caught my attention and when I looked closer, I noticed one thing; If that yellow car is the 1/8 Jaguar E-Type from Monogram and the Stratos and BMW are the 1/12 Doyusha’s, than the 911 in the upper left corner is 1/8 scale and since there are only 2 1/8 911’s (Eidai/Entex and Pocher), it had to be the 911 RSR from Eidai.
I offered a decent amount of money and went all in, and waited. The seller took the bait and I bought 3 boxes of cars and parts. To my luck, the 911 is mostly complete, not painted. But unfortunately a ‘glue-bomb’. Fortunately the windows didn’t suffer too much and seems to be restorable. One of the bigger parts that is missing, is the rear deack-lid.
Today was a nice day to break the 911 down, I started with the chassis and tried to get every part dissassembled to overlook the project and see what would be needed to get the car back to a nice showmodel.
I already decided not to restore it to original as a RSR Turbo, but will give the 911 a restomod look, as clean as possible, without the large rear-spoiler, but will keep some of the car’s features.
