this very well outwardly perfect paint and tampon printing too,all car parts fit nicely wheels and tires are well done, the car has disc brakes on all 4 wheels

The front compartment is well detailed in can see the fuel tank, the battery with its +/- wiring and other components, all parties in the real car are of glassfibre in the car is well recreated as they are yellowish plastic that mimics very well that material

The interior is well detailed but not much to see as it is very simple in you can see the safety cage, even includes protective foam with metal clamps, the seat is plastic and safety belts fabric, the dashboard is well reproduced with all your bookmarks etc Rpm speed, the driver's side included grid fabric that goes where the window

the engine is very detailed, you can see the fan (typical of porsche engines) and of the engine, I really like the detail of the metal hoses, which I like the engine is to see for low where you could see better the engine a detail that I really like are the collectors who have burnt effect which makes it a more realistic appearance

I've had this model once upon a time, I really like it but thinned my 935 collection. For anyone who hasn't got one, they are well worth picking up :smile:

F**k you Photobucket.

Great model by TSM! And nice detail pics as usual. I have the Apple Computer one and the other ill-fated Coca Cola one with Zinc Pest. Missed the chance to get this at a super good price at CK. :bawling:

I've got 13 other 935's (either Exoto or Carousel 1), and haven't been able to pull the trigger on either this one or the Whittington Bros. LeMans winner.  I really like the Coke livery on this one, but I just can't squeeze another one onto the shelves.

Great review and pics, as always.

Great pics. These are lovely models and are easily worth the low money they seem to sell for!

Okay, not only did I lie, but I went ahead and added the Norev Coke 962, too.
