Yes Steve. As a race and airfield marshall at the Silversone Circuit 5 miles from here. I saw and watched all this sort of machinery in the day and these were hugging the ground!

Just found this on YouTube

Patrick, thanx for the extra photo.  Yep, looks like the kit is a bit high all round (the 934's were real low-riding from old photos I've seen) but I would probably live with it as well.  You never know what sort of trouble you might get into trying to modify a completed build.  Cheers.

Lovely job. That livery is one of my faves.  If you have shaky hands and the tape didn't go on as well as you wanted it too, it sure doesn't show in the pics.

Thanks guys. Yes Steve the ride height is a shade too high but the body/chassis is connected correctly. I saw a recent build on one of the websites where the builder was working on the Revell version where the front is much higher.

Here's a look at it from the side....

I suppose this is a little high, but I don't like to attempt to change the stance a ruin the  build.

G'day Patrick.  I've always loved the 934s with their HUGE flared guards, and this is a beauty.  Your paint and finish look pretty good to me, I guess we are each our own harshest critic.  One question; is the ride height OK?  In the 3rd photo she appears to be a bit high.  Cheers.

Built box stock, unhappy with the exterior paint, having further problems with shaky hands/laying up masking tape.

Easy build typical Tamiya workmanship in fit/assembly with superb decals.
