1/12th 1980 Porsche K3 Apple Car

Finally complete. This is the trans kit from Christian Franke in Germany. The decals are from Michael of MS Creations. All of the parts and pieces were well made and with a lot of work turned out to be a great addition to my 1/12th 935 collection. Looks perfect next its sister (clone), the Hawaiian Tropics.car.
I want to thank fellow member Pete Thompson in San Diego. Without his most generous offer of a lot of the missing parts, I needed, this build would not have happened. A great trade for some macadamia nuts from Hawaii. "Remember, Don't Upset the Apple Car!"

Wow, I am impressed Dave.
Great job.
It's always a great joy to see "my car" being build.
And your Apple version is looking great.

Thanks for sharing.

Keep racing
Christian

Great build! I saw that car race at Brainerd and Laguna Seca that year. I was 10 yrs old, but I still remember thinking Bobby Rahal was almost as cool as Greg Pickett....his Corvette was ridiculous!
