This is another older build.  This was built from the RoG 1:24 kit.  This was my selection for a 24 hour build.  I did get the kit finished in 24 hours however I did touch up a few things afterwards.  It was a fairly simple kit and I had very few problems with it.  I hope you like it!

I like it. I've built a couple of Tamiya's 956s but not the Revell. Good choice for a twenty-four hour build, too. I'm guessing that you added the valve stems, right?

This is a great looking build - I could take 3 months to build it and it would not look as good as yours.

Curtis, I honestly don't remember if I added those or not.  I looked at the model in its case and it sure looks like they were added but I just don't remember.....getting old I guess ;).

Thanks again for the comments guys.

Mauricio, I double checked the RoG box and it says it is a 956C.  I checked the internet and found that the 962 replaced the 956.  To my eye they look very close to each other.  Is there something on the model that makes it look like a 962?  I am not too familiar with these cars and couldn't tell the difference, even if you ran me over with one.... :D

Hi John!

I think RoG made a mistake.

The 956 has a longer nose:

While 962 has a short nose:

Thanks for the info Mauricio.  I have one (or more B) ) of the 962s in my stash.  I'll have to pull one out sometime and compare the bodies.  I think both models are gorgeous machines.

I like it, nice job. It is without a doubt a 962. RoG screwed up on the title. The 962 was made to replace the 956 because the rule makers decided the driver's feet had to be equal to or behind the front axle line. The 962 has a wider panel just in  front of the door becaused it was lengthened here. . This is probaly an 88-90 962 because the rules changed in 88 to make the  venturi tunnels lower than the rear axles to reduce ground effect.

The first 962 was raced at the 1984 24hrs of Daytona by Mario Andretti.

Nice build I like everything but the Jagermeister I had a bad reaction to Jagermeister a couple Christmas parties ago. Cant stand even looking at it anymore :unsure:

Nice looking build John...It's nice to see one of these in the forum.   I picked a few of the Hasegawa kits recently as I needed a break from the usual builds.

I'm currently working on a Mercedes C9, and have enjoyed working on it very much.

While they are some-what simple kits to build, they are loaded with detail.

 

I've purchased several different Hasegawa road race kits now and I'm having a blast building them.

 

One last thing John, where did you get Jagermeister decals from?

 

Happy modeling, Vernon

You gotta love this board, both entertaining and educational! :)  I appreciate the information on a 962 vs. a 956.  Thanks to Mauricio and Dale.  I did not know this.  After reading several other discussions on the 'net it appears that there is not a truly accurate model of either (?) :blink:

Vernon, the Jagermeister decals are the kit decals.  IIRC, they laid down nicely with no problems.
