Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister

I’ve had a bit of a set back this week as trying to rectify a couple of areas of paint, it resulted in a total respray that ended up with noticeable marks and indents in the paint as well as the ever present dust. So rather than trying to flog a dead horse I’ve decidedContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister”

The chassis and interior are done and I’m just waiting on the body shell to be sprayed and decalled then I can get it finished; The engine colour is based on a photo of a 934 rather than going by the Tamiya instructions plus the photo shows the suspensions springs in red so I usedContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister”

I’ve started getting other areas sprayed such as the interior, engine block and the rear spoiler; For what you will be able to see of the interior it is good enough, I dropped some Tamiya X-22 onto the instrument panel dials to represent the glass but apart from my deviation from the painting instructions itContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister”

I gave the body shell a polish using Novus Fine Scratch remover and it is looking more like the deep shine I was aiming for; I decanted what was left of the rattle can into a spare paint jar and will use this to touch up some areas that I missed. Also on close inspectionContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister”

Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister

In between the rain showers last week I managed to spray the body shell, interior and chassis. The body shell needs some attention as there are a couple of spots of contamination, dust etc. that need polishing out before the decals are applied, speaking of which I received a decal sheet today from Spot ModelsContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister”

Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

With yet another dismal day weather-wise here in the UK and zero chance of spraying the Porsche 934, I’ve got on with spraying the Hasegawa F-104G; For the dayglo panels, the fuel tanks were masked off then sprayed first with Tamiya XF-2 White then XF-3 Yellow followed by Vallejo Model Air Flourescent Red. I normallyContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

Tamiya 1/24 Jagermeister Porsche and Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

I sprayed the body shell of the Porsche last weekend with Tamiya Superfine White Primer with a view to getting the Orange on this weekend, unfortunately the dear old British weather put a stop to that as it is very windy, very cold and snowing on and off. This is because I have to useContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Jagermeister Porsche and Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

The build is progressing although it is clear that Tamiya simplified a few areas in the model such as the inner wheel arches as looking at images of the 1/12 kit these are moulded into the chassis. Anyway I just want to avoid the ‘see-through’ aspect so I glued strips of plastic sheet over theContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister”

Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister

With the intention of just putting this together and painting the model it has become immediately apparent that some areas need attention before I do anything else, such as the ‘see-through’ grill on the bonnet and ‘see-through’ wheel arches. I know Tamiya used to do this with their 1/35 tanks as I have built enoughContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister”
