A huge 1:3 scale functional kit of a classic Porsche racing engine!

carrera

Brady just built this new kit of the classic Porsche Racing four cam engine used in the 550 Spyder, 904 GTS and 356 Carrera. Everything fits well and the large size (12" x 12" x 12") allows for almost unlimited extra detailing. The plastic castings are extraordinarily clean, the screwed assembly requires no glue, and the electrically powered internals with genuine engine sounds make me grin every time I press the button. Even the box and assembly manual are things of beauty.

Minor complaints: the plated screws used for assembly are awkward looking and too visible in places, especially on the cam covers, but can replaced with more appropriate bolts without too much effort (see extra detailing photo below). The very large size also makes it look simplistic in places, but also means adding extra details <> is a breeze. Painting all gray plastic parts with cast aluminum automotive paint greatly improves the look of the flywheel, exhaust, and carbs. For the size, functional details and price it is still amazingly fun.

300 pieces, approximately 4 hours build time, assembly with screws (no glue!)

functional crank shaft, pistons, LED tipped sparkplugs, gear driven cams, valves, and fan.

clear cylinders and cam boxes let you watch all functional parts driven by the included electric motor; the spark plugs light in sequence, and a sound recording of the real engine starts, revs, and settles into a throaty idle

both racing and road car exhausts are included a gorgeous 120 page color book produced by the Porsche Museum chronicles the history of this famous engine and the cars it powered, and concludes with the clear and detailed assembly manual

Part No. P101 $225.00 kit. delivery in approx 4 weeks

Peter Castle's

1/18 scale P51 Mustang

Peter-Castle-80
fkiajojbnjffcomf

This model represents TZ138, a MkXIV Spitfire flown at the Tinnerman Air Races in 1949. It is quite an enigmatic story as legend has it the pilot James McArthur RCAF and the aircraft (& third place winnings) disappeared the day after the race. The aircraft turned up in Florida 10 years later and is still extant as C-GSPT in Canada. It is maintained in airworthy condition, but has not flown in at least 10 years.

The model is 1/18 scale with a wingspan of about 60cm and is based on a desktop fibreglass model by a Czech company called HpH. It took around 2 years and is skinned in 0.08mm lithoplate. Many build disciplines were used including custom photo-etch parts for some details, 3D printing for the Spinner & Wheels and custom decals for the Esso & Imperial Oil logos.

It was entered in the IPMS Nationals in Telford UK in 2017 and won Senior National Champion and six other awards including best aircraft and RCAF Trophy. The next project is a P51C "Lopes Hope 3rd" which should be complete in about 9 months.
