Geez, has been one of those months. Started w/a P34, have the chassis and engine block built, ordered a Up-Grade that cost a chunk and is now somewhere in a black hole! I then posted a continuation of a shelved Protar 126C and then after a day of messing with, I broke the body shell, the kit is old and the plastic brittle. The belly pan is supper warped and again boxed up, on shelf. So I am afraid to post anything else, but a builder can no set idle long. I have been amassing material f/a 312T4 project as you can see in the Questions Section, but I have another project that has been calling my name. I purchased this kit from Germany and they are hard to get in this condition. After I received, I went thru and then decided I would again go into the breech. So what is all this fuss about. A 1/12 Protar 312B2, and yes this is the version with the pistons/rod/crank in the block, hogs head fly wheel connecting to the tranny with gears in the trans. Like a Pocher, you build all that in the engine and no one will ever see, but you know it is in there . The kit is made up of 700 parts, and yes I know all the faults, but tell me who else makes the 312B w/the rear shock set up, the B2 had early on! Am working on a set of ICON Automotive Tires and Turned Rims. I built this kit back in 1978, but this one did not have the engine internals. Will be using a few parts from a Tamiya 312B to fix a few flaws, but other than that, she will be built as comes outta the box. Will post some photos soon , maybe.
