1966 Porsche 906 in 1/24?

12 posts in this topic

Posted

I saw one being chased through the streets of Miami by a certain white Testarossa on an '80's TV show......... liked it every since! I've found some in 1/16 scale, and some slot cars, but I'm wondering if one was made in 1/24 or 1/25........

Thanks for any info............!

Thanks, Bill...........!  So resin is available, and the Arii kit. Do you know if the Arii kit is full detail? Looks like something I would have to get from the 'Bay, huh?

It's going to take some looking. Ebay doesn't have any of them right now. 

For the top resin kit, it's made by Fernando Pinto Models of Portugal.

There's a multi-media longtail kit too.

Here's a thread about the FPPM 906 kit.

Hi,

FPPM has both long and short tail versions.  It does have an engine etc.. so unsure how full detail you wish to get but I think its a great kit.

The Arii/LS is not full detail and a slot kit of sorts.  I'd strongly suggest Fernandos kit.  The Profil is not full detail but they make cool kits.

PS It's very advanced, the instructions are hand drawn and assumes a certain level of aptitude and experience.

Thanks, Brian, for the extra insight! The more I research this car and it's kits, the more I'm liking the 1/16 kits.......... especially if the Arii one is not full detail.

Thanks, guys....!

As Brian mentioned, the Arii kit is basic kerbside, no engine or suspension detail.  It's a good one for the slot car guys.

Tamiya also did a re-issue of their slot car body a few years ago, and pop up on ebay occasionally.  It's only the body, glass and flat tray interior, so not ideal for a detailed model, unless you scratch build it all.

Thanks for the info, Steve...... Does anyone know anything about the 1/16 Bandai/Entex kit? The box reads that it is full detail, but I've read elsewhere where it's meant to be motorized........?

Again, thank you for the help......  :)

Hey, Guys...... I'm still curious about the 1/16 906 from Entex/Bandai........ It says on the box that it's full detail, I'm just wondering if anyone has seen one in person?

or maybe seen one online somewhere with a review of the kit?

This would be an excellent gift to get myself for my upcoming birthday, I think.............. :)

Hi,

Unsure but Google photos has some really really nice pics of it.

Be adventurous and get it.  Worth it for the bird cage frame alone.

BTW, its an increasingly scare kit.  You should get it right away.
