TOPIC: A rare opportunity to Build a 58001 Black Porsche

A rare opportunity to Build a 58001 Black Porsche 3 months 1 week ago #55454

Some time ago I was lucky enough to get my hands on a practically NIB Black Porsche, I’d naturally been looking for a very long time and had my heart set on something I could build or was in as best condition I could get.

Some of you have already seen this on social media but back when I was twisting Lars’s ear about details he said “I expect a detailed thread on TB” haha, well I knew I would always want to share with you.

When I got this it had some bits fallen off the trees and the blister box had opened up a bit, some may be inquisitive about why I’d build too. Truth be told I was also at a point where most of my collection sat in brown boxes in the loft, something iconic like this to build and display was going to tick a big box.

More pictures to follow when I get time to get some proper ones...

First set of pictures “preperation” opening the screw bags and getting ready.

Ok so opening the manual and get started, I was really trying to to scratch the black chassis but immediately saw the contrast of the screws on the black.

Rob, you so have to build it. What’s the point otherwise.
Looking forward to seeing more.
Well done. And enjoy.

Thanks Al, I was having a little trouble with uploading pics on the phone last night so I’ll add more today. I have already pretty much built it.

I should have been clearer in my above posts so have tweaked them a little, these are my build pics :).

You're a brave man building one of these, Rob! I kind of envy you the experience but it's still not too late for me.
The combination of the rarity of the kit and the trickiness of building one of these is daunting.

I'm looking forward to the rest of the build :y:

I'm really looking forward to the details of this build. This is certainly the closest I will ever get to one of them.

Thank you all....

Jonny, I actually deliberately lined that little box just before sorting the screw bags out haha! That was almost just as fun.

(I can only upload 4 at a time) More pics :)
