It was in 1978 when I saw for the first time, the Tamiya Porsche 934 at a hobby shop. Though, the 1/12 model was built straight from the box and without paint, the details seemed to be surrealist and impossible to imagine up to that moment. It was my first approach to that Tamiya kit in 1/12 scale. Perhaps, with the aim of re releasing that success, several years ago Tamiya manufactured the same car, winner of so many championships, but in 1/24 (the most popular scale) which is the subject of this article that aims at helping the less experienced modeler to build the new Tamiya Porsche.
Although the kit comprises less parts than the big brother, is not less interesting.
Very probably, Tamiya has based the 934 chassis on the last 911 turbo. In fact, the pronounced mold lines along the front fenders and hood have nothing to do with the smoothed ones of the last Tamiya releases for example the Lexus LFA. This would explain that is an older mold that has been modified.
The work begins with the preparation of the body removing the mold marks using a round point blade. Subsequently, I would have to rescribe the panel lines concluding with a careful sanding.
