Porsche 956 Joest Racing (Le Mans winner 1984)


Recommended Posts

When the factory cars DNF in 1984, the private teams took the laurels for Porsche: Tamiya's kit built out-of-the-box in 1987 or 88. Don't ask me why, but the engine cover wouldn't sit right where it should (my fault, maybe) - otherwise: a typical Tamiya kit:

Sweet job Helmut,  that three tone paint job couldn't have been an easy trick. You pulled it off nicely. 

Thanks, Rich - the narrow white stripe across the engine cover is a decal, the rest had to be masked.

Great looking model! I have this still in the box because that paint scheme looked like work.

Thanks Tony - it is a bit work, but not too much!

Very well done and gives the rest of us encouragement to give it a go.

Thank you Gary - I used several decals from a second sheet and applied them over the first (they were not very opaque) - especially the "Pierlant Imperial" let the yellow (!) paint shine through.
