"New Man" Porsche 956(01/11) update)

Recommended Posts

This is the Tamiya kit. The body was masked and airbrushed.  Scratchbuilt parts include the airbox connecting fan to roof NACA duct, the fuel injection system and the towers and rings on the rear suspension which will connect to  the scratchbuilt brake duct hose on the uprights. The chassis needs painting (aluminum) yet. The cooling slots under the molded in exhausts were opened, that was hard and had re make missing sections of exhaust. i am using the Tamiya photo etch set which includes brake rotors. This will have allot of wiring and hoses when finished.

Looks great!! 

Is this the same kit as the Rothmans 956 but with different decals?

The NewMan Porsche 956 is one of only a handful of the chassis car to win Le Mans multiple times - Ford GT gulf chassis 1075 and I think  a Peugeot 905? any others people know about?

I melted mine back in the 80's trying to set the decals. I have one in the stash and I hope it comes out this nice.

Chassis is done. The air plenum has been installed and the uprights with brake hoses.

The decals are done, a little touchup needed. Next is the Future and wax. I had to make the yellow stripe decals to match my yellow.
