Tamiya 1/12 Porsche 934

Recommended Posts

Hi all this will be my next build looks up to Tamiya normal standards but when I first assembled the engine block the fit was awful and I had to use clamps scarily tight to pull the engine halves together (luckily this area is hidden by the timing chain cases) also luckily the gearbox is a perfect fit so maybe the engine halves were warped for some reason and that will be the only problem I get. Which is also lucky as I intend to build the engine on a display stand to be put alongside the car (as if it's just been rebuilt ready to be put back in)The body moulding is awesome hardly any seams at all and the detail in the kit seems incredible 

This is the same scale as the Bentley so is quite a large car.

Afternoon Ken @Kpnuts, know the above kit is the re-pop, as it contains an etch fret. Could I be cheeky and ask where you ordered it from? Reason being I thought this version, along with the 'Jagermeister' version weren't due until next month at the earliest!

Interested minds NEED to know!

I got it from hiroby 129 quid it's a great kit (apart from the tiny problem with engine fit)( which I needn't have bothered with as it can in no way be seen when the cooling ducts are added)

That looks great Ken :) 

I have the two of them winging their way from UKland. which is cool....

Whats not cool is that Mrs Mad wasn't supposed to be here when they were delivered... (damn this working from home crap) 

I might not be heard from, for some time :(

Hi all well the tamiya supplied engine is done, I've looked on line but cant find picures the throttle linkages, I will have to ask my boss if he has any references (he seems to have an know anything Porsche related (hes an advisor on several official Porsche boards and is highly respected for his knowledge))started the decals, which are great but, the ones round the grill are really hard especially the ones around the square cut outs (if I could have guaranteed the colour match it would have been far and away easier to mask and spray it.
