If only someone made a 1:18 scale model...

speaking of which, there is an awesome Carrera GT 1:18 scale that I've seen around lately... not as cool as the DeLorean one though!

I've got a couple 1/43s. Great detail, but don't take up too much room on my desk.

check out this fine example:





Quote:
My original plan was to make functioning doors and hatchback, (a phase I was going through at the time). I cut them all open to discover I did not have a good understanding of hinges and working parts, and I wound up putting the model away for 12 years!
184 scratchbuilt parts were added to this kit, and 95% of them reside under the hood. Some features that I especially like are the translucent fluid containers that flank each wheel well. I had to grind out the molded-in containers, rebuild the wheel well, and then replace the containers with scratchbuilt ones with fluid in them.
The containers took many experiments and attempts to come up with what you see here. Despite the work and time involved, I was determined to make these parts look realistic, because I was convinced it would lend life and realism to the engine bay. It was also a detail that I had never seen done before. It's a feature that I would like to apply to future subjects where applicable.

The intake manifold was adjusted in many places to reflect the original and to properly fit the intercooler hose. Throttle linkage was added. Elsewhere, fuel injector lines, a distributor with wiring and ignition coil, a working dipstick with a touch of fresh oil at the tip, master brake cylinder with brake lines and turbo heat shield, wiper fluid lines, retractable headlight motor and lifting mechanism, warning decals, and car serial number on the firewall all add to the realism. A complete build list follows for those interested.

One mistake was scratchbuilding and installing a part for which I was unsure of its use. It turns out I added an air conditioning part that was removed for racing!

Photo references were abundant for several reasons. First of all, though lightly modified for racing, this is really a production car, and the engine retained most of its production parts. Second, I had years to accumulate references from magazines of the actual race car, from local race events where 944s were present, auto shows, a friend's car, and my local Porsche dealership. I feel that one can never have too many references.



Corrections Under Hood


Removed molded fluid containers and reshaped front fenders.

Replaced with real translucent plastic containers in the same shape
as the originals and filled them with "fluid".

Caps and fluid lines created according to photo references.

Created fluid pump for wwipers

Corrected inaccurate intake manifold

Replaced inaccurate distributor. New distributor created to lead 4 spark plug wires to cylinders and 1 wire to ignition coil.

Replaced inaccurate master brake cylinder with a correctly proportioned assembly complete with brake lines, authentic photo based decals, fluid level sensor, etc...

Brown production carbon canister removed as per racing version photos.

Canister bracket created as on original car

Shock tower tops created as on original car

Molded door handles dug out and reapplied to bodywork

Replaced kit molded hoodpins with functional PE hoodpins.

Exhaust tip drilled

I like the 1/43 scale models. You can fit a lot of them is a small space. I have a subscription from these guys DeAgostini and I get two 1/43 scale models every month.

I have a 1/43 944 turbo cup, but I have not assembled it yet.

It is really cool.
