Spotlight Review

"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.

"Great kit fantastic price"
Jess61302 (11613 N. 50th St. Unit 206 Tampa, FL 336)
Great kit. Great details. Great price. Paid the same amount for this kit as I did 30 years ago on the first 1 I built. Wondering why the other manufacturers are charging so much more for 50 and 60 year old molds.

"This Tamiya kit is a classic"
This is the first Tamiya kit I've built, and now I can see what all the raving is about. Everything fit so well I thought I must be making a mistake. The directions are a bit different compared to Revell and others, but with careful study they make sense and are accurate. I hope Hobbylinc gets more of these.

"Tamiya Porsche 959 Coupe"
This model was a fun build. Usual Tamiya attention to detail and quality. Not too difficult to build, but still challenging enough for someone (like me) getting back into the hobby after many years. A real bargain, too. I bought two and am looking forward to adding more detail to the second one.
