Following all the detailed research, technical drawings, and the master CAD model development comes the finishing work re-creating and applying all the graphics for the various versions of the cars to the kit's flattened parts.

The undertray and inner core armature are the last major pieces of model design work for the "curbside" versions of the 962. The design work for these parts has been long and tedious as they have to fit around the internal mechanical details if I do full-detail chassis version.

This is the second test build for the late-era 962 body. While having many various refinements and more detail than the first build, it's still a very scruffy one intended to reveal changes and modifications that need to be made.

This first release of 962 models will be a selection of cars run at 1988 through 1990 Le Mans 24 Hours. All were running the later "M1.7" watercooled update and, with exception of the Alpha car, raced in the low-downforce "longtail" configuration specific to Le Mans.

Long-time friend of Prototyp and aerodynamicist Michael Fuller was recently sketching an evolved, custom-bodied 962 variation. This 962 would leverage late-era IMSA GTP aero approaches seen on the Nissan GTP ZX T, Dyson's DR2, and Joest's 'red baron' 962.

An anxious moment in model design is the first time seeing the work on the desk, in actual three dimensions. Are the proportions right? Do the panels fit well and lend themselves to a precise build? Does the overall presentation "feel" right?

Working on a legend. The ubiquitous, enduring, and highly successful Porsche 962 is probably one of the most scrutinized prototype subjects around. It's also my favorite racer and has been at the heart of this Prototyp project since its inception.
