Porsche 911 GT2 "Wolinski "

 Le Mans 1998

by Raphael D'hahier


I went in Le Mans in 1998 and I discovered a very particular car with a funny decoration, when I saw this model to Provence Moulage kit I decided to built it.

It's a very simple kit in Provence Moulage's standard with bodyshell, cockpit and dashboard in resin, the wheel inserts are photo-etch.
The more important work with this model is decal with cover all the bodyshell.

I sprayed the model with white primer only, I didn't use other colour, and I started to apply the blue decal . The decals reacted well with Solvaset to help sit on the body and form to all the curves.
After the decal was dry I applied 2 coats of clear acrylic to get a uniform aspect.

I painted details of bodyshell with Humbrol semi gloss black, and I painted the interior with the same colour, I did the seatbelts in matt red, and the details in silver.

Before assembling chassis and body, I applied the rest of decals and I sprayed one coat of clear acrylic.

Editors note

This Wolinski art car must have been one of the most outstanding ever to race at Le Mans. Every time you look you find something else of interest. A real "night on the tiles". I built one for a friend and the decals took 14 hours! I still have one to build for myself but after building 8 Racing for Holland Domes in recent weeks I think I will build a few 50's sportscars.
