Very nice,Kevin. What year was this race car on the circuit ? I used to religiously follow the endurance races like the 24 hrs of Le Mans when Porsche’s were part of the line-up.
That was in the late 60 ies and after. Steve Mc. queen was in one of them race cars ( probably Ford ) for the namesake movie. He went slow while others had to manoeuvre around him !
Thanks for showing something different.

Many thanks Bernard! The car was (I believe) raced in 1984. It seems we have some common interests as I too enjoy endurance racing. I attended the 24 hr Le Mans race in 2015 when Porsche returned to Le Mans and actually won...a great experience as we camped on the Porsche Bends with the Porsche Club of Great Britain. All in all, a great experience! I even enjoyed the drive down to Le Mans...

Classic Porsche 956 colour scheme, Kevin, nicely done. Definitely liked. What is the WIP 1/18 Tamiya kit?
Kevin Rowbotham said on September 15, 2021
Thanks George...I do have a thing for orange Porsche's and in fact the work in progress is the Tamiya 1/12 934 Jagermeister from the original issue (1970's?) This is proving a challenge as the 'rubber' parts in the kit have deteriorated and have become un-usuable. I'm toying with the idea of buying the re-issued kit in order to overcome this problem.
Time for another Porsche
Hi Kevin, you might like to have a look at my 1/24 Porsche 934 from Tamiya.
Cracking job George! did you put the engine in?...I can't decide whether to leave the engine out and display it separately?
George Williams said on September 16, 2021
Hi Kevin, this is only the 1/24 kit so no engine detail, only what you can see from underneath.
Anthony Ricco said on October 18, 2021
Amazing work Kevin - that engine is phenomenal. Absolutely terrific.
Kevin Rowbotham said on October 19, 2021
Many thanks Anthony! Unfortunately the work has stalled on the kit...I must get back to it!
