Tamiya 1/12 Porsche 934

Done some work on the fuel tank. a word of caution to anyone building this kit. When it comes to mounting the oil tank, on page one of the instructions it tells you to attach the mount for the oil tank, unless you skip ahead and build the oil tank first dont attach the mount in the first picture the bracket on the left had side is for the oil tank (the shelf with the oblong rail coming out from the side.

The steel pipe laying on its side next to it in the next pic goes into the tank and then into a hole in the bulkhead.

In the position of the next picture.

Here is a picture of the oil tank in position

Getting that pipe into the hole in the bulkhead and into the hole in the oil tank with that bracket in place is impossible (on this model of course that bracket was well and truly stuck) so I cut that rail off in order to get that pipe in then glued it back on again.

A better option would have been to attach the bracket and tank with the pipe on at the same time.

Here are some pics of the fuel tank.

Thanks Randy

I must say I'm really enjoying this kit (although I thought it would take longer to build )

The seat is just placed there not glued loads to do to that yet.

Hi all bought a mirror to mount the 934 on will have the car on axle stands with the engine alongside it, not sure whether to have the tyres stacked or arranged around it, also thinking of putting 2 walls up around it with pictures of the car racing on them I'm going for a look of it being in a museum display.
Any suggestions welcome.
