Porsche 959 Paris Dakar 86

Hello!
I thought for a long time of construction of this legendary
Porsche.
I am very surprised that there is no correct model of this
car.
The awful set from Gunse-it did not consider seriously.

Now my friend has learnt to receive qualitative details
from resin,I have decided to make not simply model for
myself.I will do transkit for a set Tamiya.
For the decision of a question with decals the ready body
is necessary to me.I have begun body alteration.
I have three sets:Tamiya, Academi,Gunse. Tamiya there will
be a basis, others two - donors.


I have begun changes with a back part of a body.On a
prototype other engine hood and the narrow back fender with
the air scoop.






The road clearance in scale 1:24 will be 12мм

For reception of high quality after moulding, it is
necessary to level and internal surfaces of a body.

Changes in a forward part of a body too the big.




I will be very glad to your remarks and offers on transkit
manufacturing.
Could not find a photo of the bottom part of the car.If who
that has - please send to me.

Looks like great work so far. The Rothmans livery always looks good on a Porsche

Re: Porsche 959 Paris Dakar 86

I'm looking forward to this wip, because i'm planning to do the same with my tamiya 959. Are there decals available for this car?

Hello!
While is not present. But they will be necessary for my set. I already talk to firms which do decals.

Pattos have these in stock, but I have used decals from them before and are silk ink decals and are hard the work with.

Re: Porsche 959 Paris Dakar 86

Too eyckles:

Decals for 959 Dakar ?! Very interestingly!It is possible to receive the information where they can be seen or bought?

And small progress:
Cut out holes in a forward part.I would paste thin plastic on hole edge that there was no big thickness.



Headlights:


Back lateral glasses were not transparent.Have decided to do them together with a body.
