    Thanks first one in 5 years just trying to get back into it.

    Thanks Yes there was all kinds of issues with this kit. The decals did not fit well and were very brittle and broke up a bit. One of the hardest build I did ever.
  3. I am building same kit and was on the down side and ran Into an bunch of fitment issues too
  4. +1 DREMEL polishing bits but they do polish up very nice.
  5. this is what that common install became but let me see what else i can find
  6. I can see what I can dig up and I am not sure I can find the specific Martini car the kit is supposed to represent. I am however pretty sure all the 935s had a flipped trans. I also believe in flipping the trans in a real 911 it can be done without extensive tunnel mods. It might not be worth doing on the kit but it would be kind of cool and unique because it would be different then all those other ones out there, not that you would see it really.
  7. Porsche cut out the floor and redid it with a bunch of dezus fastened sheets.
  8. I always liked this kit for some reason. I think I have 6 of them including a first run with gold cup. They did get pretty horrible towards the end when Seville was trying to revive them.
  9. Yeah he is an interesting dude for sure, Mr. Tamiya. The other interesting thing he said about the large Porsche models is they "didn't look right" at perfect scale and had to change them so it looked right built. So it is a case of out of scale in certain areas intentionally so it looked right.
  10. Somewhat off topic but a good read on drive these beasties http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/a4576/porsche-934-vs-porsche-935-track-drive/
  11. Not sure how it was mounted but it's why the shift rod ended up above the tunnel. They did other creative stuff for the 935 like raise the floor all in an attempt to getting it as low as possible. The inverted trans is still a common practice to this day for low race 911s
  12. I guess the big question now is do you flip the transmission upside down like in the real car?
  13. I have a bunch of the Ferrari EM and a couple Lambo EM kits. The Dino... 243 parts... ??? I know right crazy
