I have no idea of age though I suspect late 60's / early 70's. Size wise it is a fvery close to the Protoslotkit Porsche 908 but there are some style and shape differences.

It is in need of some lovin' care but runs very well considering the tryres are baked somewhat!

It is a Fäller Porsche (908???) and I want some advice from you guys...Q's under the pics...







OK - question time!

What is the best way to clean up that yellowed and crusty glue?

Does anyone know exactly what marque it is?

and

Does anyone have some links to liveries for this car?

thanks loads guys!

You can make these look quite nice, here's one I did for Bordeaux a couple of years ago



It is Faller Porsche 907, good news is that an Atlas chassis will screw right in so the c**p Faller chassis can be dumped!
Fit the Atlas chassis, grind away all that excess plastic in the tail and it will run good

Plenty of pics of these cars at Le Mans etc on the internet, just do a search.

Hi all,
Tell us about your windscreen cleaning method, Phil. The model ones anyway.
I once cleaned up a glue smear on an IMC Impala screen using a Micro-mesh sand and polish kit but yours is something else.
Anything to do with Klear?
Regards,
Lowrider.

Didn't need cleaning on this car as it was a new shell,
but a good method is to get some of the very fine sanding pads. Start with a 2000 grit and gradually work up to the 12,000. You end up with a polished screen. Don't use any rubbing compounds with ammonia in as these can make the clear plastic craze.
I get my rubbing pads for the Toledo toy show in the USA when I am there, but I guess you can get them elsewhere.
