PostSubject: Martini Porsche 935   Sun 30 Jun 2013, 7:11 pm

A couple of forums are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 911 with builds.  So I decided to join in the fun and build this car.




While fiddling with the pieces, I decided to make a stand to build/display the car on while I was assembling it.

Right you are there, Clay.  If it wasn't for the stuff in the lower corners, it would look great framed.

I assembled all of the chassis pieces together and painted them grey. It's not the color the instructions call out, but I like the way details in the interior stand out with that color. The instructions called for white.

Expensive BIG SCALE kit, but one of the best. Porsche always around international racing and the 911 is iconic. Thank you and I hope to see it come together!!

I bought it so long ago that I don't remember what I paid for it.  But it wasn't as much as they go for now.

Not much progress I can show.  Lots of clean-up of course.  But I did get the basic engine and transmission pieces together.

It's looking good Paul. Then again Boxer engines always do.

Good start Paul, nice touch with the stand. I'll be watching this WIP, I want to learn where the tough parts are. I have one of these but it's the old Jagermeister version.

I'm going to try p/e belts for the first time on this kit.





I got the first couple of steps done.

Let us know how those PE buckles go. I remember my first time. It wasn't pretty. Build is looking good.

I'll keep you posted on the seat belts.  I figured starting with 1/12 belts would make it easier


Front suspension has made some progress.  The Tamiya bottle is to give a sense of the size.  It's the smaller bottle.

Thanks Clay and Buck

I wasn't happy with the seat, so I redid it.   Better prep this time, semi-black back side, masking job, then Tamiya dark grey front side.



And with all of the rear suspension bits through the paint shop, it got put together.

Thanks Al and Buck.    Al, those discs are staying as is....maybe next time.

Since the chassis is coming along nicely, it's time to resume work on the engine. The engine tin work was in this semi-transparent plastic, but I didn't like the look, so I sprayed it Tamiya AS-15 Tan. Also got the distributor superglued into place

Why Tan? Looks good, nothing wrong with it, just an unusual color. Or at least that's what I am thinking.

The engine is looking good Paul.

Good call on the cooling ducts colour.

Buck, Paul has it pretty close to the original which was I believe natural finish GRP.
