1. Porsche 935 K3 #43, Coke, 24h LeMans 1979 - Truescale Models

Nice collection of  935s. How's the Truescale compared to Exoto? I am really tempted to buy one but haven't seen one yet.

Great 935's!, but no IMSA Brumos version!  That Jager version and MOMO ones make up for it though.  :lol:  

Truescale really did a great job with the 935's, but I can't comment on the Exoto, since I've never handled one in person.

Great collection, I love the 935's too - do you have any plain bodied ones or are you strictly a race car guy?

TSM did a great job on them - I have a few & think they're ace, great value for money! Side by side they're on par with each other (imo)

I collect just race livery cars, but I'm tempted with one of Exoto's plain white 935's

I agree with Craig regarding the quality and detail of the TSM Porsche 935’s. they are outstanding and superb value for money. They display very well with the Exoto models and hold thier own with the level of detail on them.  The Exoto models maybe a little more refined in places and offer additional features such as removable wheels, but you can’t ignore the cost of TSM against Exoto. If I was a collector looking to add one Porsche 935 to my collection, then it would be a TSM. The additional cost of the Exoto would be hard to justify against the TSM model.

I must admit I’m at a bit of a dilemma with my collection now. I have a great love for the Porsche 935 but I also have a huge interest in Group C race cars as well (I watch them race at various historic events throughout the year). So I’m currently divided on whether to sell the 935’s, adding just the Spark Moby Dick later this year and maybe the Exoto Martini #40 Le Mans car (if one ever comes available) and focus on some of the Group C type race cars.  Unfortunately space is my enemy and it’s one or the other. Been thinking about this all week and not sure what I’m going to do. If space wasn’t an issue I’d have both.

Cool, I collect both liveried & normal road cars. I have a plain white Exoto 935, to be honest it's the nuts!! I have it in black too, but the white just looks awesome!

I have a fair few group C cars etc. To be honest I think your 935's look great so if I were you I'd keep htem, then just at one group C at a time etc.
The Martini number 40 is cracking, but as you know it's very very pricey! I had the number 3 car & to be honest, the prices they go for is mad. I'd love TSM to make one.

Always loved the look of the 935s, I wish it's a sort of look Porsche had continued to use for a bit longer. Imagine a 997 911 GT3RSR with that same sort of slantnose front and flared wheel arches. :drool5:

Very nice Porsches my friend. I'm thinking about adding a Porsche 935 soon, but deciding which brand to buy from. I do like the look of the TSM, but Exoto is the safer way to go. Decisions...decisions...
