Another rarity below in the guise of the 936C that finished 6th overall at Le Mans, 1986, driven by Siggi Brun and Rudolf Seher. View attachment 283295
Now thats a nice liveryI dont kn If Slot it did it, but If not would be worth to search some decals and paint a white kit😀

Looks quite”simple” but the fact that the black and white front play with the sponsors names make it challenging.

I asume it could be done with a 962 kit…
Cheers

Just to briefly return to the European Mountainclimbing Championship, Porsche had long been associated with this highly specialised branch of motor sport, but abandoned it after the death in practice of Ludovico Scarfiotti in 1968 at Rossfeld.

His 906/10 skidded off the road, landed in a tree and poor Scarfiotti died of injuries after having been ejected from the cockpit. Porsche thereafter left mountainclimbing to concentrate on circuit racing, which was an equal pity after the great Auto-Union days before the War.

Wasnt Scarfiotti the pilot who drove for Ferrari in 1966-67 aboard the P3?

Aha! The 906 langheck, Chappyman. Wonderful. Greatly looking forward to seeing progress with this build. And thanks for your 'teaser' above. View attachment 283612
Specs for this model is a heroe quest to find(long, width, height) as there are almost no data available in the web😅
Help would be much apreciated Laurence 🙂
Cheers

A bargain: £4 from yesterday’s NSCC swapmeet in Leeds. A great opportunity to replenish my stock of parts and spares, too. The Porsche runs quite well after a bit of work, but it must have one of the slowest Johnson motors in existence! Apart from my metal-bodied VW bus, it’s the only car I have which can take the ‘esses’ on my short track flat out! View attachment 283659 More work needed…..

The Porsche is nice indeed, just remember that after a few decades some HP is lost😉🤓

I imagine the day will arrive when 3DP will also result in spaceframe chassis, and other details, emerging from clever machines. A mind-boggling thought, eh? View attachment 283771
I understand that MB and some other Racing Teams have printed parts and spares of their cars using carbon fiber and other high performance materials(titanium?), so I’m sure as Chappy says that the space industry is also using this 3dp tech to build some stuff.

I'm awfully sorry but I can't recall where the wheels on the 914/6 came from. They were lying in my spares' box and seemed to fit quite well. They're far too modern for this Porsche, but they serve their purpose well enough. View attachment 283876
It’s ok as it’s for racing, just that might give Professor Porsche a heart attack, wherever he might be… blame it on the Camel🐪, he’s the master of evil behind all things that could go wrong 🙃

This is a Flyslot Porsche 997. This is one of 2 liveries they did which had a sound device installed to replicate the sound of the 1:1 cars engine. It sounds good to me. Not the fastest but sufficiently quick for me. View attachment 284169
I wanted this but seems unavailable nowadays, so guess it will be a white kit with decals, but I never knew of the sound chip or whatever it made the engine sound like the 1:1 car, would be nice if you could put a video or link to the video to watch it.

Gracias Frederic, mmm no decido aún si es genial o una completa basura, curioso es que tengo el mismo auto pero sin luces y sin el chip de sonido…🤔

Snap, Matthew. Here's my '98 Evo road car but, of course, its wing mirrors are missing having led a hard life. View attachment 285303
Nothing like a nice car with battle scars, 😉

I usually don’t worry too much about mirrors, only fix the wing if it’s ripped on a race, fact I love the trade paint marks on the bodies…

This is basically the same car and chassis but the Test car is slightly faster. The models have the same registration number. The silver test car is a Fly Porsche 934 and the rally car is a SlotWings Porsche 934. This a model of a car Carlos Sainz (the rally driver not his F1 driving son) drove in the View attachment 285983 View attachment 285984
2012 Historic Spanish Rally. The rally car has Fuchs wheels. View attachment 285982
Thats because Fly chasis is rubish compared to the Ninco😉, nothing a nice 3dp chasis couldn’t fix, Killslot my fav for the Fly …

Porsche used to be quite famous for these pictures. Ferry in particular liked to tell the world that his chassis were so light in weight that even he could pick them up.

Where the 917 is concerned, however, he scarcely knew about the project until... he received the bill. The rows are now part of Porsche folklore, of course, and continue to make me laugh.

Thanks for posting the pic. Greatly appreciated this end.
I asume that magnesium and aluminum are not a good recipe in case of crashing🤔

On the right the Porsche 962C raced by Jr and on the left the 956LH raced by me last Saturday on a 3 hrs race(25 minutes stints), on the Northern Slot Club of the City, a track with medium straights(+-5 mts) and good race rithm, a really nice race in which our p6 and p7 results tasted sweet as we beated many of the local racers with +5 years on the circuit.

Nothing like a good endurance race for the weekend, with Slot it Porsches😀…
