1/12 Kremer K3 Porsche 935

Hello,
i try to build the Kremer K3 Porsche 935 in 1/12 scale
That famous cars was the winner of the 1979 LeMans race.
It was the first,and only as far i know,sportscar who could reach the first place overall against the prototype.
Try to create an good enough model out of the Tamiya Porsche 935 kit.

Major changes have to made to the body work.Mainly the whole body is different.The engine and interior needs not so much attention.
But here a pic to show which car i mean.


source: Bruce Canepa Autokollektion USA http://canepa.com/1979-porsche-935-k3/
Got an old build Tamiya Porsche 935 and lots of new sprues at home.Should be possible to build something K3 like out of it.



First step will be some templates for the wheel arches and the fenders.



I was sure my next build would be an oob build after the Zakspeed car.
And i put my new Tamiya Porsche 935 onto the bench.
But when i searched the web for reference pics,i stumbled over that beautiful Kremer Porsche.
And thats it. I have to build my own one.
The very successful "Numero Reserve" car is a must.But i also like the "Apple" livery car a lot.Will try to create a mold for these.
And the 1980 "Jägermeister" car is also possible.But the 1980 cars needs even more changes to the body.

Regards Christian

Re: 1/12 Kremer K3 Porsche 935

Hello,
i want to show some progress on the Porsche.Even when its not the Kremer K3. :? :?
It takes a lot of time to create the 3d parts and so i decided to start with the standard Tamiya 935 Porsche.
Dont want to start a third wip thread beside this K3 and the MFH Gulf 917.So i will put the pics in this thread.



Chassis was painted matt black.



small parts strictly after the manual done for primer.



Decals are enough for at least two Porsche. On the left you can see the Decals printed by Wim.
He got the right fluo red colors like the real car was showing in LeMans.
Nice job Wim!

regards Christian

Will you be building the same car and event as what you plan for the 1/12 scale version?

Re: 1/12 Kremer K3 Porsche 935

Sorry,I didn't understand what you mean?
Both versions are in 1/12 scale.
Do you mean that?

Re: 1/12 Kremer K3 Porsche 935

Sorry Christian, I mean the exact same car, i.e. scheme, event, drivers. So other than the scale, the model is identical. Or are you going to build the Tamiya kit out of the box?

Re: 1/12 Kremer K3 Porsche 935

The works 935 will be the LeMans 76 version who ended 4th overall
The Kremer K3 will be the one who won at LeMans 79.
The factory car will be most out of the box. No extra parts, only cables and wires will be added.

Re: 1/12 Kremer K3 Porsche 935

Today i received the first 3d part.
Thanks to Torsten!







I think the size is perfect.Only some small changes to the edges have to be made.Thats nothing big.
So we can move on the the next parts.

regards Christian
