Alternatively, you can try the solution shown here: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/133743-42056-porsche-911-gt3-rs-mods-and-improvements/&do=findComment&comment=2632994 where the small panels have a different orientation.

so, am i right in assuming that the orange brick shown above under the headlight is the same brick as the one used at the bottom of Pg. 35, only in a different orientation under the headlight?  i ordered the extra pieces shown at the bottom of Pg. 35, but may also try the solution above to see which looks better to me in person.  thanks!

Same panel but may require different pieces to work and possibly some disassembly.

More info on that version

Here's my quick go at making the dashboard more realistic

I brought the left and centre sections out 1 stud by adding a 13l liftarm. And then I replaced the 2l curve pieces with 4l ones either side of the screen. I also added a bit of a bump in the middle for the clock

Do you by chance have a picture?    Thanks

Thanks that actually looks quite a bit better.  I think that is the first cosmetic mod for the interior I have seen.  Great job.

Thanks! I forgot to say, to do this I also added a blue half pin and round stud plate behind each paddle shifter to bring them out slightly. Otherwise the new dashboard would obstruct the paddles.

Moving the paddles out has no effect on the gearbox function and makes the paddles a bit closer to the wheel too

I just finished building the "pimp my porsche" version, and have to say that i absolutely love it. I already knew stuff about how the gearbox would work for instance, but the stepper mechanism and the way the paddle shifters work was very enjoyable to build, chances are ill give my chiron the same treatment in the future to fix its (relatively minor) issues.

It also makes me realise just how far 42096 is off the mark, it is at a smaller scale, supposed to be a race car, yet has twice the ground clearance at the back of 42056, and the roof line is too high as well. Plus, 42056 and 42083 now dwarf all the other cars in my display, 42039, which i previously considered one of crowns of my collection looks unsophisticated and small compared to the behemoths.

Ill have to look at filling in some of the smaller gaps in the porsche though

Hi,

   I just purchased the Porsche 911 42056. I am reading about this model since last year and pulled the trigger this year.. I read this forum and few other forums. I have few questions. 

1. I was looking for the instructions for 1.4 version. I see that 1.3 is clickable but 1.4 is not.

2. Are there any instructions on how to motorize this? 

 

Please guide.

Thanks a lot for the quick reply. This is awesome!! I have one more question.. Does the motorized version has all the mods, what we have in 1.4? Or at least the mods to reduce friction and hence not damaging the gears and other parts?
