1/12 scale Kremer K3 Porsche 935


Recommended Posts

The rims are ready.I made a two part rim because of the painting job.Some cars needs a silver color and so you dont have to make a mess while painting it.

just out of the mold look them like this.

a bit sanding they look better.

into the wheels they look even better i think.

backside is not a beauty,but who cares.

Its not so easy to get them out of the mold because they are very fragile.But it works with patience.

The apple one needs two DIN A4 sheets because of the size of the stripes.Its the car driven in LeMans 1980.

Here are the LeMans winner from 1979.

tiny update on the K3

the printed windows screens looks very good.Only the front window is not the best option in my mind.Its too flat,so i made a vac formed windscreen for the ones who dont got the tamiya original window.
Decals are also looking great.Great job by Michael!

tiny evolution of the K3 body work....

Two questions:

What type and brand primer do you use? It's very even, dense and looks good for wet sanding.

Your trans kit will sit right on Tamiya's 935 chassis and engine Christian?

Yes, the transkit is designed for the Tamiya 935 kit. Lots of parts from the 934 kit should also fit. 

 

The primer is from Duplicolor. Standard basic Grey primer in the cheap, big bottle. Works great for the first coats.

Hi,big step forward today.
The Porsche stands on his own wheels.

Was much more work than i first thought.
The body was sitting much too high on the chassis.I needed to sand 3 mm from the Tamiya parts to get a better ride hight.
The front shock absorbers had to be cut for round about 2,5mm .

The rear wheels still needs 1,5mm more width to fill the wheel arches.Now i need some longer screws to hold them in place.
The front wheels are perfect fit in my eyes.

Here you can see the parts where i needed to sand down massively.
enough for today

Fantastic work Christian. :clap2:

 

Moby Dick next?    

 

Thanks Kirk!

But i have to say sorry.I`ve got the Moby Dick car allready in 1/12 scale.Its the CMR Version which is very good looking.

@Pocher Perfectionist: a Walter Wolf version is no problem.My buddy Michael who designs all my decals could make that version easily.

I think every possible livery can be made.He got lots of 1/18 designs ready and only have to scale them up.The same way he did with my "numero reserve" and "apple" version.I only tested the correct size and made some adjustments.
