Quite some time ago I entered my Porsche 914 on this forum, on which I got much appreciated comments. It took a lot of time to implement proposed changes and netxt, getting hands on the bricks needed. It's done however, just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the model, first appearing in 1969. I took the liberty to built one of the Limited Edition variants of 1974, the so called Creamsicle. Overall proportions are improved, this model can be converted into all variants that have been made of the 914, including the 914-GT, 914-8 and the 916. Like the first model this one has: Porsche suspension in the front, cheating the torsion springs by real springs hidden under the chassis, Working Ackermann steering, Working headlights, single but also dual headlights as once used on one of the two 914-8's fit, A working gearbox, but with only 2 gear ratios Fully adjustable seats but I've built an eualy interior as well in which the passengers seat is fixed while the drivers' seat is reclining, An engine bay, accessible through the glove box, with a flat 4, 6 or 8 cylinder engine, battery and a blower used to help getting the cabin heated, And next to the engine lid, the doors, and both trunk lids can be opened. Somehow I can't insert more photos but there's more on my Flickr account Porsche 914 Creamsicle. Looking forward for your comments and/or replies, hope you enjoy this model Kind regards, Wilbert
