      Curious about this one. I've almost picked it up a couple of times, but on the box cover, something always looks "off" to me.

      Looking forward to seeing one actually built.

      To be honest, it's total crap, and i know what you mean by seeing the box cover, the car has no mirrors or wipers, plus a lot of parts are off-scale and nothing fits well.
      I hated building this car, probably my last revell.

      I painted the Tamiya 1/24 1983 Audi Quattro

      car is pretty much done, no pics yet but the chassis, interior, enginebay is all done, body is painted, only need to do the final installs, put the stickers on and take photos, feels so good to build a tamiya after fighting with the revell porsche.

      Ugh. That Carrera looks awful, are those the wheels/tires that came with the kit? The tires look WAY too big for the car and the wheels are too small. ****ty. I bought that kit when it came out but haven't put it together yet.

      Yep that's the wheels that came with it, they were full chrome so i painted them black and silver.
      Size is ridiculous, like you said, and the tires are two halves you have to glue together.
      The whole thing really fits poorly, the hood doesnt even close all the way because something pries.
      Glad it's over haha

      I opened up the Carrera tonight just to see for myself. I was pleasantly surprised to find an entire extra set of tires loose in the box. I figured Revell tossed them in to fix the scale. Crappy thing is they're the same size as the set already in the box. Not sure why they sent the extras. I will just use some Fuchs out of my parts bin from a tamiya.

      Exactly. I have a few kits right now that are in various stages of completion, and there's a few fitment issues with wheels. Definitely time for some creative suspension and wheel mods to make everything sit just right.

      I would say that's a modified re-issue from a 30 year old kit. That's how they used to be, terrible wheels, 2pc tires. LOL.

      I can agree that most Revell kits are disapointing after building a tamya kit or two. Your cars look great, makes me feel like I need to start a thread posting some of mine, I just dont have a decent camera Keep it up and Ill keep looking!

      Thanks!!

      It's been no updates for a while now, it's because snow melted and i have less time to spend on modelling, but it doesnt mean i stopped

      There is a 996 gt3 in the works, it's almost done in fact, i have a few body parts to repaint because of some weird reaction the paint had. Rolling chassis and interior is done.

      Here it is:







      And one more on the shelf:


      Next one on operating table:

      Tamiya 1/24 1985 Porsche 959

      Oooo - wait 'till you build that sucker. Since you built the Fujimi 930 Turbo, you probably know what you're up against. That is a challenging kit, loads of fun and really nice when done, but boy, oh boy. It's a tough one.

      Here's mine at about 50%

      ^There's a reason Fujimi gives you those little stands to display the engine on if you want. They're brilliant!

      Sadly i never got the 911R kit, an ebay messup and i bought the quattro instead.

      On another note, the 959 is now done, not my best but still pretty nice, worst part is the window rubbers im not really proud of haha

      Next on the operating table:



      I'm kinda dissapointed, no engine to make, it's a really basic kit. I was expecting more but it'll be another porsche to my collection so no regrets hehe

      Here's mine, (not the 911R, just the RS) built about 5 years ago.
