Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister

I’m slowly getting this finished and although I had planned on it being today, a couple of issues slowed me down so it ‘should’ be called done tomorrow. The window frames and body trim were masked off and painted using Vallejo Model Colour and a brush;

Once done the model was given a coat of Mr Super Clear varnish as the Vallejo paint is pretty fragile especially over the gloss orange.

One thing I noticed from a photo of the actual vehicle was that on the 1978 Le Mans Porsche that I used the Reji Model decals for, there is a cap over the hole in the bonnet (hood) that the Tamiya kit doesn’t have;

I made a cap from 0.010″ plastic sheet cut to 6mm diameter, glued on a small strip of sprue then sprayed it with the body colour before fixing it in place;

The headlamps were masked along with another cap on the bonnet where paint had been rubbed off and sprayed with the body colour that had been decanted from the Tamiya rattle can;

Tomorrow I should be able to fit the glazing and some other and call it done although I am going to try and make the cone-shaped vents that are fitted to the front wheels on this particular Porsche.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
