  1. 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.
  2. I used the kit hoses but I do have some braided hose so may well change those. Here is where I am now.
  3. 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.
  4. 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. Wish I'd used mrmikes ideas with the pencil on seam lines "before I sprayed the body" still its locked in for future reference.
  5. Looking great, I like the idea of highlighting the areas needing attention with pencil defo going to borrow that one it th future
  6. More work on the engine and a start on the body. This kit was 129£ you can buy an upgrade kit for the 935 for 1200£ (needless to say I wont be buying that (it does have over 2000 parts ))
