1/12 scale Tamiya Porsche 7 years, 6 months ago #1

I got this out to photo and Catalogue so I thought I would share some photos of this Martini 935.


I have had it assembled since about 1980 and it has suffered a bit due to moving house etc and will need some repairs, but what a great model even if it is plastic.

Thanks for sharing.

Can you show the chassis please?

And does the dust cover that protects the mechanical components come off? It's a cover between the rear wheels.

Nice car, and very detailled too

Richard the dust cover is not removable now.


The brown corrugated inlet tube is obviously not connected correctly but it is a type of thin wall rubber tube, has partly perished and is stuck as shown so I am reluctant to rectify this.

My one is a 1/20th scale and still impressive. I repainted it red.
My one had the option of swapping with an electric motor, although am unsure which one it has now.
Sorting through my plastics is another mission I'll sort through later.

And thanks for the photos. I'll have to find my smaller scale to compare.

I love the details
