Porsche 962

Hi all,

Here is my latest build - the Hasegawa 1/24 Porsche 962. A fun little build, this kit was re-released midway through last year. I finished it as the Omron 962 Vern Schuppan ran with great success in Japan in 1989. This is chassis 962-008, which was earlier in life a factory Rothmans car and the red/yellow Shell/Dunlop car the Andrettis drove at Le Mans in 1988. I used Tamiya lacquers for the paintwork and acrylics for the weathering. I used a little "artistic license" with the paintwork. As always, comments and critiques are very welcome.

Thanks for looking,
Jake

The weathering looks very realistic. Especially like the wheel rub mark. Good work.

Nice work, I like the weathering. The only constructive critic I have is to make sure the clear part of the windshield matches the height of the wiper - it is just a tick off but really just a minor detail. I am liking your last two LM cars posed together.
