Porsche 934 RSR 230mm 'Baby Blue'

Recommended Posts

Spent much of this morning installing the LED light set that came with the kit, plus a couple of extra orange LEDs. 

It is super-fiddly, what with the tiny LED stoppers and screws, all those wires in various twined groupings, and trying to find neat and tidy ways to route the wires around the shell and keep them as hidden as possible and out of the way of the body posts

But, with the application of some time, patience, various widths of heat shrink tubing, Tamiya LED clips, cable ties, double sided tape and some industrial language, I got to a place I'm pretty happy with

Hmm, yup, I'm a relative newcomer to all this but have fallen foul of Real Life Logic vs Tamiya Logic a few times already!

WELCOME my Friend, to the unexplainable World of Tamiya!! 😜

The LIGHTING turned out awesome!!! It doesn't get less fiddly as time goes on - but the end result never ceases to give that feeling of satisfaction. 👍👍

Your car turned out really well. How you cut the pop shaft and mashed the end was what I had in mind also. 

I have one of the max speed chassis for my anniversary build and when I found out about the 230mm I ordered one up. I started a new black Porsche build. Then COVID hit and the BS with maxspeed started. They stated DHL was no longer shipping small packages. I asked on here about shipping and some confirmed the decreased shipping but then I got two different parts from two different German sellers so after 4 months of waiting I got my money back. Here is where it sits

So apparently I am not the only one that got screwed by maxspeed.  I orders my chassis and towers in June and got the excuse about DHL in July and then early September.  Because the purchase is so old I can’t even message him about it anymore.

curious as to if he marked yours as shipped?  Guess it is time to file a PayPal claim

He marked mine as shipped. After waiting about a month I contacted him and he said it was sent back to him. Thing is he never contacted me to say that he got it back.  Very disappointing.

I got a response to my missing item case today.  He is sticking with the “all packages to US and Australia were returned”. He is offering to send it DHL ground/sea.  I told him as long as I have a tracking number that shows me that it is moving then I will be fine.  It blows my mind that he thinks it is ok to just leave people hanging like that.

**UPDATE**

Maxspeed has shipped me something.  I assume it is what I ordered.  Hopefully it is here by the end of the month.

Sorry to hear from those bad experiences! But hopefully it´s only due to Corona packaging issues!<_<

He is a nice guy, and offered me to do the 230mm version after I asked him, if it would be possible. I draw up a sketch and made up the true 230mm version.

And it´s really nicely made, and not expensive for being cut in Germany. But of course, shipping to another country is another thing.

I keep my fingers crossed, that you finally get it!

Kind regards,

Matthias
