A pair of Porsches that won Le Mans in 1986 (#1) and 1987 (#17). Both are old 1/43rd Starter resin kits built out-of-the-box.

Awesome models. These Porsches tore up the circuit back in the day. Great job.

Beautiful builds Mark!!! I used to build tons of 43rd kits, not so much these days. The Starter kits were not the greatest, but they did build up nice models with a little effort, and they kitted many of the great Groupe C, IMSA GTP cars of the day.

These look excellent. The Rothmans Porsche Group C cars are a fond memory from childhood, they were superstar cars in their day. Well done for turning these out so well.

Nice pair of 962s.

Still considered superstars, probably on of the all time great sport cars that dominated everthing for more the a decade.

Mark, Nice job on those two Starter kits especially the decal,s age isn't kind to their decals sometimes. Question did you do the art work on the Scale Master Decals that were in the Precision Miniature 1/43 kits?

Yes, I worked at Precision Miniatures and did much of the white metal casting as well as some instructions and decal artwork. Same Scale-Master…

Interestingly on these two models, they both shared the same decal sheet. But the older (1986) kit had better printed colors and they did not crack. The one year later issue had a different blue and the decals cracked quite a bit. You just never know until they hit the water...
