BMW M3 JPS 1987

Hi guys,
I'm finally back building again. This one is the M3 kit from Beemax with wheels from Scale Production and decals from Decalcas. I have back dated the model from 1991 DTM spec to 1987 Group A spec by modifying the front airdam and rear wing,
scribing a fuel flap, fitting a side exit exhaust and adding detail to the interior door cards. I have also changed the mirrors and moved the air jacks to match references of the 1:1 car. There was a fair bit of work to get it sitting just right because the scale production wheels are smaller than the kit supplied wheels so a straight swap leaves the car sitting on it's belly with JDM/tuner style camber on all four corners. Enjoy.








The Decalcas decals are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen they went on easily and have reflective gold graphics I took some photos outside to see if I could get those reflective gold decals to pop.





Thanks for looking
CheersSS

Great job mate. Looks spot on.👍 All you need to do now is have it sitting next to the 635 😆

Thanks guys, My JPS 635 is under restoration at the moment but it's not that far away so I'll grab some pics in a week or two. Couldn't stand the thought of having a good looking model sitting next to a shagged out 20 year old low skill build so I just had to do it.
