Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 935 "Martini"

This is my latest finished build and another classic kit from Tamiya. Although this kit is very basic in terms of detail I still think it builds up into a smashing 935 when finished. The only issue I had during the build was with the decals which for some unknown reason just didn't want to come off the backing paper without a fight. In the end I resorted to dipping them in boiling water which did the trick and once free from the backing paper they went down really well although in some areas a lot of micro sol was required. The kit was primed in mr surfacer 1500 grey and the basecoat white was the old faithful Tamiya X2 thinned with levelling thinner. The gloss coat was zero paints 2K clear and for the tyre lettering I used a Dunlop stencil. Unusually for me i decided to add the driver figure that comes in the box this was a side project whilst I was waiting for the clear coat to dry. Here's a few pic's of the finished build plus a couple of the man behind the wheel 🙂

So that's it for now time to start planning for my next build which I think could be a bit of a challenge 🤔.  Thanks for looking back soon 🙂👍

The finish is really nice on this Andy. You’ll be needing the Revell 934 RSR in Martini livery to site alongside it.

 

Mark

Thanks Mark, I've looked at the Revell kit a number of times and I think it could be one for the future 🙂👍

Spitfire 🤔....ahh...yep...the plane not the Triumph...I started wondering which kit release i've missed 🤫🤭...I'll guess this one would be the next great creation 

All the best 

Marco F 

I've only ever built a few aircraft kits Marco and that was quite a while ago so this build will be a bit of a learning curve i think 🤔
