Hello,

I love this GT : the Porsche 959. But since I can't afford one, I'm dreaming with models.

When I was young I had Tamiya models of this car and I even did the convertible.

In slot cars the production is there but not exactly what I want. At 1/32 there are the poor SCX and the MSC (now Scaleauto). The MSC are not so bad but I kept in mind my old model. So one day I decided to build mine at the 1/24th scale. I started so many years ago that I'm confused ! I started with a Scaleauto metal chassis and a Tamiya model. I had some lapses. Then I suddenly founded how to make the best connexion between the chassis and the model and I ended it last December. Here is the result. Plus it is very pleasant to drive.

Hello Marcury,

I am also a big fan of the 959. Your version looks great and in the classic silver colour.

Representing a car of significance in automobile development, surely it deserves all-wheel drive?

Hello Leo and Ickx,

Thanks for your comments.

Sure an all-wheel drive would have been more realistic with the original car. The Scaleauto chassis is fantastic and the car is very pleasant to drive. To build a 4WD car requires to create his own chassis. I'm thinking obout it...

Another good thing would be to mask the motor from the inside of the car. I could also add parts of the original engine, there is enough space, but that would have add weight on the rear overhang.

Here are pictures of the connection between the Scaleauto chassis and the Tamiya model. The 2 small wedges are here for the screws and they also let the wires move freely.

About the plastic model, the connection between the chassis and the body is exactly as described in the documentation of Tamiya and I didn't note glued it.
