Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister

Calling it done! This has been my first model car in a lonnnnng time and it has been an ‘interesting’ experience to say the least and a subject well out of my comfort zone. I did learn a few things (apart from keep away from model cars) so it has been worth while but IContinue reading “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 ofContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister”

The model got a final coat of gloss varnish today, unfortunately it has left an ‘orange peel’ texture in places however it will have to do as I want the model off the bench so will carry on with it as is; With that I finished the tyres by spraying them with gloss varnish (afterContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister”

After only a couple of hours work the decals are mostly done, just the tyre, headlights and front bumper ones are left to apply. The decal for the grey strip under the front bumper will need masking and painting as it hasn’t bedded down enough and I had to slice it with a scalpel howeverContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister”

I have 11 days off work so I’m going to try and get a couple of things finished, one of which is the Tamiya Porsche so tonight I’m making a start on the decals; Rather than use the kit decals I’ll be using this set by Reji Model of the 1978 Jagermeister Porsche. Once doneContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister”

Tamiya 1/24 Porsche Jagermeister and Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2

A bit of a contrast on the bench today and after stripping the paint off the Porsche body shell a week or so ago, it was re-primed with automotive primer, re-sprayed with Tamiya TS-12 and that is the best finish I’m likely to achieve so I will get on with applying the decals and thenContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche Jagermeister and Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2”

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”
