BAD BOYS FOR LIFE - Porsche 911 Carrera 4S
1/18 scale diecsast made by Minichamps
As a big fan of the Bad Boys movies, I was more than thrilled to see Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in the third part, "Bad Boys for Life," once again cruising through the streets of Miami in a Porsche. The 911 Carrera 4S of the current 992 series in gentian blue with black interior (as seen in the movie) is a real eye candy. And the 450 hp boxer engine mobilizes 530 NM and accelerates the 911 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds.
I was all the more pleased that Minichamps recently launched the matching miniature version. It is a limited edition of 354 pieces and available exclusively at the renowned shop CK-Modelcars.
The 1/18 scale miniature is an exact replica of the movie car and as a little gimmick, even the matching Florida license plate (decal) is included. But what I especially like is the paint job - the blue color looks so intense and almost as if the paint was still liquid.
Also the dimensions of the rims and tires are absolutely harmonious. Since nowadays opening doors and hoods are no longer a matter of course on models, this model is also equipped without such features. Nevertheless, thanks to the steerable front tires, I was able to set the model nicely in scene and some good pictures were taken.
I also fooled around a bit and added the Bad Boys lettering to two of the images.
