1986 Porsche 959 Rally Paris Dakar
Share this model:
I found the chassis in German eBay classifieds for a really good price. The downside was it was 330km away. However it was a bargain for 250 Euros so I went and drove almost 7 hours round trip to pick up the chassis. It came with a M01 Mini Cooper body and slick tires. About a month later I found a body kit on eBay which was mostly original (except driver heads and interior plate). Now I'm looking forward to build this beauty. The chassis I already stripped and cleaned it properly. Funny enough I was missing some parts but had a 959 press parts bag in my stash for 20 years. It came with a random parts loot back in the days. I'm really excited about this overall project. I think every Tamiya lover has a heart for this kit. In the future pictures of the build will follow :-).4 First step the cutting and fitting of the parts k 2 1 1 1 1 1 1
Very nice, I look forward to seeing it finished.
just wow, what a find for that prize! Also the bodyset with stickers! Congrats and have fun building the legend!
A real holy grail these days, great find, looks in very good condition, enjoy finishing it off.
What a find, definitely worth the drive! Look forward to seeing it finished
Thats a super find, this car looks awesome with either a painted or a clear shell and decals - do you think you will brave to paint it or leave it x-ray and apply the decals?
No I’m going to paint it. At the moment I’m at the interior painting . It will take me a while cause I don’t have so much time at the moment but slowly it will come together. Pictures will follow.
