    Nice to see this :-) I built this many years ago, one thing I remember is that the body itself is a little to narrow, if you have the Tamiya 934 you can compare them.
    I didn´t know this when I built it, but I think it looks rather good anyway.

    I used mostly Modelmasters metalizers colors for the engine, the brass is Alclad polished brass, some other parts is Alclads polished alu.
    I also replaced some plastic rods with alu and brass rods.
    A piece of "leather" was provided in the kit, to cut in stripes and put around the steering wheel, but I used thin tape and painted it with MM Dragon black.
    The tires got floor polish before decals then I brushed matt acrylic clear on top.

    Thanks all :-)
    The wire wheels is the  ones in the kit and they are very good ! Otherwise there is plenty of sinkmarks ,ejectionmarks. I did fix the ones who could be seen when finished.
    The hinge on the hood halfs are placed on top , that is wrong so I removed them and did my own of alu tubes, the hood itself doesn´t fit in the end , both sides can´t be shut at the same time.
    But I think most people will have it removed so you can se the engine.
    The wheel axels is plastic and a nut will lock the wheel..two of the broke when I tried doing it.. I had also to remove some parts in the center of the engine, otherwise it would´n fit , but they was not visible anyway.
    The window is about 4 mm to small :-) easy fixed.
    Here are some pictures from the build

    Fiat 806 Milano GP 1927. 1/12
    Hi
    This is the Italeri kit, a reissue of the old Protar kit. So there are alot of flaws and fit problems but in the end I liked it.
    I planned to do it oob but I did add some extra bolts, screws, cables and so on. Scratched a new seat, with some foil from
    a whiskey bottle !!  The car was brushpainted before the race so it was not very shiny, more of semigloss. I used Tamiyas grey primer and
    then Tamiyas Italian red, that turned out in a semigloss finish so not need for any clear.

    Porsche 934 "Wrangler" Silverstone 1978
    Hi
    This is Tamiyas 1/12  "Jäger" kit  but I choose to use BBK.s decals for Silverstone 6h in 1978, added a few also.
    As usual they worked nicely. For detailing I used hex boltheads , rivets , hoseclamps, braidedlines with connectors also valves for the rims,
    all of different brands. Done some weathering on the chassi and on the rims.
