Porsche 917 construction report part 4 bodywork
At the weekend, ultimately the RB7 will go on. My exams are over then and I have much time afresh. Till then, you can look at one of the last steps of my Porsche 917. The bodywork was one of the most difficult jobs I’ve to do at that car – it will be the same with the engine cover of the Red Bull.
Anyway, the bodywork became very well. Intentionally I choose the “Hippie” Porsche of Le Mans 1970 because I know of the possibility to cover the cutting edges with the characteristic green-white stripes of the hippie- desing. But that was one of my best works in my modelling career to get that bodywork that close to the original one. It’s one of the big problems in paperboard modelling, that you can only build developable parts. That means, no plane which is bent in two directions – shortly, no ball shape.
