One that tamiya should have considered: porsche 911 carrera 2 rs (964rs)

Thank you all for your comments. Apologies to those who felt that I had hogged the entire homepage. It is just that I finally found some time to update my collection but realised that some of the photos were on another laptop, rather than the one I used to update my profile.

About the car: it is a 911 Carrera RS (964RS) in Rubystone Red, or that is what Porsche's idea of the colour, which is more like raspberry than pink. :-) Suffice to say it does look good on a nice sunny day, not that there are many of those around though to enjoy.

Thanks. Yes I did (and still do very occasionally) track it, but less so as time passes by, since these cars are becoming quite sought after classics.

Pajero rally raid - ta01/ta02 chassis hybrid (2002 paris dakar entry)

Thanks. I agree, except that the XC chassis, as used in the 57701, and other XC derivatives, is better off road, which of course is the aim of the rally version. So its a trade off between technical correctness vs. off road capability. Hence the reason I aim to try both conversions. The body shell is solid/moulded plastic so quite tough. Bought two models, which didn't cost much so will try out both conversions. The tricky bit is to modify the interior to fit the tamiya chassis since the electronics need space and of course the shape of the floor pan of the model is not exactly the same as the Tamiya chassis, particularly the XC. So it is a case of cutting, grinding and shaping the floor pan to make it securely fit the chassis. The body shell is screwed to the floor pan which was modified to sit on the TA01/TA02 chassis.

The rc model is made by Le You Toys, a toy manufacturer from China. Used the front bumper, running boards and rear valance so the body shell looks exactly like the original.

Now, that is one hell of a project. Interested to know about your paint job. Great job, and a credit to the Porsche fraternity.

Hi,

As a Porsche fan great to see a project completed so well. Is this a genuine 3.0 RSR? If so do you have all details of its racing history? If not, let me know I may be able to track it down if you give me the chassis number. Great looking painjob as well.
If this an original car have you kept everything original? Would be interested in the details.
