I bought two 962c’s as a pair off eBay. They where both in very poor condition. I wanted to fix them up but also wanted to keep an eye on cost so because I had a can of orange paint this one became a Jagermiester livery. I settled on Spa 1986 version as the wheel inserts came as a set.

This car had no working lights and a broken pinion. There are no light covers and of course it’s in a poor paint condition. On the plus side the paint stripped off using Mr Muscle oven cleaner from just 2-3 24 hour soaking sessions. However underneath the body was very badly scratched. I tried a bit of filler and some heavy primer but was unable to really address the depth of the scratches.

The paint is Tamiya orange and black and the decals are from lemansdecals.com. It runs ok, the front wheels need fixing as they catch on R2 corners.

Great job.........what wheels/tyres did you use ???
So I kept the original wheels and added some inserts from pendleslotracing “ Slot.it Wheel Inserts BBS Porsche 956/962”. There are multiple versions of the insets so enough to do another car or add more bling to this one.

I have the other 962 in the works but that one has different wheels to the BBS ones. Just need to find time to finish it - it’s not a Jager . The two cars will be a racing pair on my track. A bit further down the road I’ll design a 3DP chassis for them and fit a digital chip.

So here is the second of these two Porsche. Stripping this one was quite difficult, Mr Muscle did not touch the original paint, in fact I believe rather than paint it was sparkly nail polish. Tried nail polish remover that shifted some then tried a couple of Tamiya thinners then neat alcohol and finally white spirit. It was the white spirit that finally gave me the stripper I needed. However once stripped the body work was clean and unmarked.

Again the lights needed replacing and there was no light glass and I changed the rear tyres. These two will race as a pair, one by me the other a pace car.

The large decal in the back is a mess. I should have realised before I had soaked it that it was never just going to fit! Hey ho we live and learn.

I wanted to keep the cost down hence going for this livery it’s Lemans 1993 Porsche 962c, the wheels are the originals with the inserts removed
