Model Factory Hiro Porsche 935/78


Recommended Posts

As most of you know Bruce and I are part of a group build of this particular car/kit. 
I just hope I can come close to what I am sure Bruce will nock out of the park.

Thank you for looking and I hope you like 

Chris

Not much to show, I did spend a few hours sorting through a lot of small white metal parts. I was trying to get them in order per instruction sheet. It is quite tedious, the parts are not marked, so you need to look at the pictures. Speaking of pictures there are no color call outs for most of the model. You have to do a bunch of research 🧐.

these are all parts for step one. I also have to pay attention to which side is the intake side(pic#3)and the exhaust side(pic#4)

still need to clean and prime before I paint

I spent the last couple evenings prepping, priming and painting. The photos show the sequence on how it goes together, just like the directions. This is just step #1

thanks for looking

Looks great Chris. Kind of lost my modeling mojo. Might put the Porsche away for a little while and come to my senses. Need to build a 1/25 or 1/24 before I loose my mind on the hiro kits. Talked to Mark the other day and he even said MFH kits are sometimes a bit overwhelming. I have a little amt kit I just might have to do just to find my mojo again. Bought it for $10 at our club meeting.

That’s a sweet looking kit, I like your idea👍
no worries buddy! I think a break is a great idea, I get what you’re saying about overwhelming

Engine looks great  !  I would be in so over my head with these kits.

Thanks!

 I think if you can get over the initial cost of one and take a few hours of studying the directions, it’s not all that bad. It is, a test of your skills

I bet the cost is pricey

It all depends on how you look at it. The bigger the size the the kit is going to cost for sure. For instance this kit is around $650-700. The re released Tamiya Porsche is about $160-200, but the scale motor sports detail set is over $800. And you still need glue and paint. I have gone both routes on 1/12 kits. If you have a minute look at my Ferrari 312T build I finished about 6 months ago, I have about a thousand into it.

thanks for looking 

Chris
