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.

Not a million miles away from the Tamiya Porsche 935 I started a while back and then shelved for a while.
It will be really good to see how you get on with yours.

Keep posting Ken.Love

Well ... I'm struggling to understand why anyone would think that a hairy tattooed leg would make a great backdrop for a model ... or am I missing something here? Confused Huh Glare

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.













Ps I've barely started the decals (what ever happened to the English version (which I much preferred transfers) decals, where did that even come from you transfer the image from one place to another what you de (cant even think where cal fits in) sorry rant over, I just dont understand it.

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.
