"Exceptional quality"

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"
odell.js
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.

 
"Porsche 959"

This is a very nice super car to add to your collection I love this kit so much though I am not a huge super car guy it is always nice to add a super car or two to a car show diorama this kit was so much fun to build I have to pick up another one the details in this kit were awesome and defiantly worthy to pick up 5 out of 5 stars for sure for this kit I may buy a lot of super cars like this one and build a junkyard diorama in Dubai it would be really different to the other dioramas I have PROS: Nice casting, fun to build, detailed, CONS: I have yet to find an issue with this kit. If you are looking for a good super car kit or just want to build one you should consider picking this one up

 
"Typical Tamiya Quality At A Budget Price"
smiffy93
Must admit that Tamiya have a range of high quality but lower cost models and this is one of them. Great detail like locating tabs so you cannot get LH or RH parts confused. Fit gives some hard edges rather than seamless almost invisible ones but never the less enjoyed making this model. Maybe a Rally version decals could have been included for a more of a 'Club Sport' racing look like they did with the Lotus.

Comments

  • 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.
