this should be a long term struggle. Love these big scale kit but all the detailing and the size of it. Putting the base coat of white on and the stripes is at least a start.

That is looking beautiful Mitchell! Would love to have this car in my stable. I myself am busy working on a long term project too......the 1/12 Protar F40. You are indeed lucky that your 935 has great detail because mine is an uphill battle for sure! Great job so far, I will be watching this intently.

I love the big scale cars since they got volume and the space to really get the detailing done. After the 935, still have a Rosso 1/12 NSX and 1/8 Revell E-type to go.

a quick update, painted the red chin on the front body work. To answer a previous question, the body is molded in white. this is a reissue and overall the body is very good, only a slight wrapping close to the windshield area which is slowly massaged into the correct shape.

I did the 934 before this one, quite a few interesting change on the 935. 934 is more a street car converted to race car while 935 have parts that is built that much stronger. These kits are a gem, the engineering involved in it and it was done in the 70's. 

 

More progress today, did the suspension and the front end of the car. Drilled the pedals instead of using the PE provided in the kit. Added seam welds at certain chassis location. Build the shock and workable steering system. And built the driveshafts, The driveshaft is an work of art, with moveable u-joints and real rubber guibos.

I built that kit when it was re-issued in 2006, this was before they re-issued it a few years later with PE.  

 

I think I used every shade of testors metalizer on the engine and suspension. I kinda buggered up the decals and the red stripe, but I am still happy with it.  I remember the multiple pieces of the wing being a bear to get smooth and it kept popping apart . The other thing that was a challenge was the window frames that attach to the doors.  I was in the home stretch and rushed that part a little.  Like you indicated above, the engine and the drivetrain are jewels .. the U joints and the rubber parts are functional.  I always wondered what builders thought when this kit was released back in the 70s.  That kit is a journey... have fun with it.

 

Fotki lost most of the pictures but here are a few

i bugger the decals a bit too, but since it is on already and claercoated already, can't do much about it. there are a few issues with the kit as you stated, the window frame on the car is fragile since I went through it with the 934. This version is the later version with the PE addition and the Cartograpgh decals. The decals are awesome, even when I sort of screwed it up already. There are more to come. thanks for sharing.

got the front end all done. Mounted the lights with covers plus the oil cooler screen. Also got the rear brakes on. This kit has PE for brake rotors which looks great.

did the wiring on the fusebox on the dash board today. don't know if it is correct but just used my imagination with the wiring and the color. Also added the lenses for the gauges. There were only two lenses that fit the gauges in the kit so had to made 4 of the smaller gauges.
