"Exceptional quality"
no.1silverback (Mesa Az)
This is the first Tamiya kit I've built and I'm very impressed. Perfect parts and only had to use a couple swipes of a file on 2 or 3 spots for alignment. Really enjoyed building this one.

"Older kit that needs some work"
This is a nicely detailed kit of a very iconic Porsche. The dimensions are correct and the stance is good when compared to the real car. This kit however was a little more challenging that the typical Tamiya kits. PROS: awesome car with good detail everywhere. CONS: Two piece spoiler that requires putty and tricky sanding on the inner part of the spoiler, rear tail light needs a lot of fine paint brush work to good, molding lines on front and rear fenders. My kit also had the top of the car out of alignment, the front A pillars are very thin and were twisted. I had to soak the body in hot water and the press it into the correct shape. I am happy with the finished look, but due to the cons listed above I recommend this kit to experienced builders.

"High quality, low price"
If you haven't acquired this kit, what are you waiting for? Besides being one of the coolest Porsches conceived (four wheel drive for the Paris-Dakar Race), it is typically Tamiya: good fitting parts, above average detail, and in this case an unbeatable price. If you have some facility with custom mixing paints, the interior paint scheme is very cool! This model is a good bang for the buck.

"Great build"
This was a fun build. The engine compartment was fun to build and paint. Can do many custom jobs on this kit and the car looks great!


  • Keep small pieces and sharp edges away from children ages 3 and under.
  • Recommended paints are for adult modelers only.
  • Care should be taken when using tools and modeling knives.
  • Use cement and paints in a well-ventilated room.
