MAF has reviewed on of the TKP32 kits produced by MMK. This is Kit TK3 the Porsche Carrera 6 longtail from Le mans 1966.

Click here for the review.

Thanks MAF

I'm impressed that Marlon could put together such a comprehensive review (and build the kit) seeing as he only got the kit for Christmas!

Yes, the joys of being off work over the holiday period
.

Being pre-painted also helped, normally I spend a lot of time cleaning up castings and preparing for paint but this one was all done for me

Very nice build Marlon and a very comprehensive review. It would be interesting to compare performance with the "short tailed" car. I only say this as I have a Topslot Porsche 917 LH and I find that it defiantly handles better than the standard 917K, (non-magnet of course).

Regards

Alan

I agree Alan, its easier to predict the slide coming and control it with the long tail car as opposed to the whippy action of the short tail (non-mag) in my experience.

I presume these MMK Carrera 6's will follow the same pattern.

May wait to see what Fly have to offer this year as a Carrera 6 from them has coming for a while now before going for a short tail MMK.

Excellent review!
Impressive work too!
I was wondering about the exact contents of these kits and how much effort it would take to complete one.

Hi Marlon,

great work - I´ve just finished the red Daytona-version, but didn´t use the kit´s wheels for the rear-axle since their drilling for the axle seems to be too big. How did you solve the problem? I went for slot.it-wheels instead of the original ones.

Re. the inlet: I cut out a piece in order to place a bust in there.

My short tail is waiting to be built, also.

Thanks Ulli. I used two part resin glue to fit the wheels so had plenty of time to set them square in the holes, plus a little tyre trueing and their fine.

Could you post some pictures of your car, be great to see it.

Best regards,
Marlon.
